Maternity | Bernadette & Charl

” Joy is overwhelming fun – fun so big that it overflows your mind, heart, body – as if all of life and love were spilling into you and you were spilling out.” – Bernie De Koven

A maternity session a little different from what I’m used to, but I LOOOVVE different, it excites me, it makes the world a interesting place and this session was no different. I have never had a pregnant mama go down on her knees for a picture……

When Bernadette suggested we do their session at UJ’s Sports Arena, I was a little surprised and curios, as I already stated, I love something different. Then I heard the reason behind this venue and I was even more excited than before, as I’m a little sentimental too. Bernadette and Charl met here many moons ago and spend quite a lot of time here as athletes. Charl being a rugby player and Bernadette being a short distance athlete. The stadium holds a lot of incredibly fond memories for them and I was privileged to get to capture some more memories made here.

This session was fabulously different and incredibly fun. To B & C, your energy is contagious and your little girl is going to have a ball with a mom and dad like you. Keep laughing, keep having fun and keep loving each other just the way you do!

Pregnant in a time of Corona

The impact of the corona pandemic has really reached deep into our hearts and homes. Pregnant moms and expecting families have had to adjust their expectations of what is an already stressful time in terms of adapting to a new little life.

The next hour was the hardest for me, it felt like torture. It had gotten dark and we lit candles around the bath. I was trying all different positions, but struggled to find something bearable. I had worked so hard on breathing and relaxing, but when the contractions came it was so crushing, all I could do was ride it out and wait for it to be over.
