Welcoming little Leo into the Coertze family.  Thank you that you were willing to wait until I recovered from my operation to do this session for you.  Leo was not very keen on getting his picture taken without his clothes, so we opted for kind of a life-style session.  Mom and dad has really good genes to have such handsome little boys.  But looking at mom and dad it is no wonder!

One of the greatest blessings in my work is the heart warming people I meet.  Nico and Elizna touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes!  At the end of the session Nico thanked me for the tender way I handled their precious baby girl, he said it with so much emotion I wanted to cry and just hugged them.  No amount of money or praise can ever replace these precious moments in my career.  Thank you Nico and Elizna!  I pray that God will bless you as parents of His precious gift to you.

Garden Route Maternity Portraits – Le-Ann Expecting

Maternity

Le-Ann & Gerhard are expecting their first little bundle of joy!  They are not local to the Garden Route, but decided to book a maternity session for their visit during the December holiday season.  Not being local, they really wanted beach portraits.  On the day of their session, the weather was not looking good, so I suggested that we start off in my studio and then hit the beach.  This way I knew that we will get guaranteed shots if the weather turned bad.  The beach images turned out to be awesome!  They were such a stunning couple to work with and I know that this little one is blessed with great parents!

Garden Route Family Portraits – December 2015 Part 1

Family Portraits

2015 December holiday season was a very busy season, 2 surprise engagements, 4 weddings, a newborn, a maternity and round about 20 family sessions! Wish I could share something of them all, but some clients requested privacy.  I have shared moments in client’s home and families coming together for the festive season.  I met new families, seen some local ones and was blessed with clients returning.  I have heard so many beautiful stories of hope and love. Thank you to you all for sharing a little bit of your life with me!

Mossel Bay Maternity Portraits – Marcel & Terry Expecting

Maternity

Trish booked this session for her twin sister a while ago.  I made a note in my diary of a maternity session for Terry on the 27th and added a cellphone number, but no further details.  This being the hectic season I could not remember the details of the booking and the number I had did not work!  I could not find Terry any where on social media, smart woman, so I was kind of in a panic!  I was so relieved to receive a message from Trish last week to finalise the details for her sister’s session – I did not remember that she made the booking – lesson learned: make notes with every booking!  Marcel and Terry are such a sweet couple and still totally in love.  Marcel is super proud of his beautiful wife and Terry cannot keep her eyes of her blue eyed husband. They are looking forward  wait to little Olivia’s arrival later this week. Looking forward to meet this little bundle. Love the gorgeous light and sweet moments captured in these beautiful maternity portraits.
