Karena is 6 months pregnant and she wanted some maternity photos done before she travelled back home to the US. Karena and Mandeep wanted to have their photoshoot done at home, partly so that their beautiful 7 month old dog, Uno, could be in the photos.
Well, their home in Parktown was just perfect. I LOVED the jacaranda lined streets, and the stone steps in the garden, and not to mention the beautiful door!
Oh and happy anniversary too! It’s their first anniversary today of their wedding in India! Hope you have a good trip back to the US
I flew up to Harare, Zimbabwe for Rugare and Godwell’s wedding this past weekend. Part of their package included an engagement shoot, and because they’d had engagement photos done in the US (where they live), we did a maternity shoot for them on the afternoon of the day we arrived.
I just love shooting at Bushman Rock, the light is just beautiful, and there are so many places to take photos. I did plan this quite precisely this time though, because I didn’t want to use the same locations on their wedding day the following day.
The weather was also perfectly overcast, although I would’ve loved some sun flare through the Msasa trees in the small grove that we found.
The couple’s wedding photos will be posted in a few weeks time
Lee-Anne contacted me months ago to book her maternity photoshoot, and I met up with her and her husband Dave, this afternoon at Delta Park in Johannesburg. Lee-Anne is 34 weeks pregnant, and it was perfect timing for a maternity shoot. She’d found me via Facebook after I’d done a photoshoot for a friend of hers, Gerda. The funny thing is… I discovered on Facebook this morning, that her and Dave are actually friends with my sister Elaine too!! Such a small world!
Anyhoo, what an awesome couple! I had such a lovely time with them in the park this afternoon, and they willingly traipsed to various spots as I changed my mind a few times about where the best places were today. I LOVE what we did in the end.
This was so sweet, as soon as they started holding the scan image from their very first scan, Lee-Anne and Dave started talking about how they’d found out they were pregnant
I wish them all the very best for the rest of the pregnancy, and for the birth of baby Jack.
There are a few more in an album on Facebook too
Beatrice is almost 38 weeks pregnant, and will be having baby Martin (the 6th generation of Martin in the family) this week!! Yes, we cut it a bit fine with this maternity photoshoot but I’m so glad we managed to meet up at Walter Sisulu Gardens in the end to do this shoot this afternoon. Although, silly me forgot to check whether there were any concerts, so we had to avoid the Zebra & Giraffe concert to get our shots. Thankfully though, the gardens are huge, and my favourite little spots were just waiting for us. We were also incredibly lucky with the weather, and although it was overcast when we started, the sun shone at it’s best when we got to the veld area.
I tell you, Beatrice and Martin (new dad) were amazing. You’d never say that Beatrice was 37 weeks pregnant if you’d watched her speed walking around the gardens!! And I loved that they were willing to navigate through the thorns in the veld until I was happy with where they were placed
Candice and Kallie drove all the way from Carltonville to meet me at Delta Park for their maternity photos. When I spoke to Candice on Friday evening and she told me that she’d been in hospital for observation this week, I was really not sure she’d make today… but she did… and we took it really easy during her shoot as a result. I’m still a bit overwhelmed when people will travel so far to see me… it’s such an honour and a HUGE boost to my ego.
My word, check their eyes out… if they’re anything to go by, their daughter is going to have stunning eyes!
