Expecting a child is such a blessing, the wonder of God’s creation.  Sharing in this precious time of a family’s life is always an honour. You are a beautiful family, enjoy this little one!  He is blessed to be born into your family.

Garden Route Mossel Bay Maternity Session – Inge


Taking the time to do a bit of a personal project is always rewarding! Inge only wanted a few studio portraits to remember this precious time of expecting their first little one. I asked her to extend the session with a bit of a project for me. The recent fires in Dana Bay was scary and tragic, I am also a Dana Bay resident and was directly affected by this. I do believe that one should rather focus on the positive than the negative. Thank you Melissa, you were such a great sport for helping me! Makeup by Gabriella Netto.


Garden Route Studio And Beach Maternity Shoot – Roxanne



The absolute beauty of an expecting mother! We initially planned a session in the forest with a few beach photos afterwards, but things do not always work out as planned.  So happy with how thing turned out in the end, love these images of beautiful Roxzaan and her family expecting their second little one.

A session filled with emotion.  A story of broken hearts healed by grace and filled with hope.

Garden Route Maternity Portraits – Le-Ann Expecting


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!

Mossel Bay Maternity Portraits – Marcel & Terry Expecting


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.
