Maternity | Etienne & Ignette Moolman

“Everything grows rounder and wider and weirder, and I sit here in the middle of it all and wonder who in the world you will turn out to be.” — Carrie Fisher

We had a couple of ducks joining us for this beautiful maternity session at the very impressive Illyria House in Pretoria. This venue is cramped with nooks and crannies and our time were just to short to use it all. However, those we did get to use were spectacular and Ignette and Etienne was exactly the right couple for this venue, they fitted right in.

Their incredible show of love for each other was magic to capture, Ignette’s face just lit up every time she looked over to Etienne, making this shoot, although a little different than what I normally do, pretty damn lovely!

Why was I so desperate to have a natural birth?
Yes, it would have been a most empowering experience for me and yes my next one will be a VBAC, but was it really that important in the bigger scheme of things? At the end of it all we got what we set out to achieve – a human being that we could guide and mould and set free into the world for her to make her own impact. Maybe that trauma she and I both endured in getting her Earthside happened exactly how it was supposed to. That’s birth and even more so parenting – you set off on a course with big plans and that’s great, but there has to be flexibility and acceptance in changing course depending on whatever life (or your kid) throws at you.

After a minute or so we heard your first loud cry. It was glorious and we could finally breathe. Sr Lotter brought you to us and our hearts melted, my boy. You were beautiful. We checked for 10 fingers and 10 toes and we couldn’t stop looking at you. The happiest moment of our lives. You were born at 11:33 weighing 3.49kg and measuring 53cm.
