Maternity | Linda and Dietmar Bhömer
“Beauty is how you feel inside and it reflects in your eyes…” – Sophia Loren
This maternity session gave me all the feels. I loved the couple, this is my second bump to baby journey with them, I loved the dress, I loved the venue and I love every single image!
Have you ever heard the saying;
“You are glowing”
while being pregnant? I could never quite get it. I could never see myself being “glowing” while being pregnant with any one of my daughters…I am however sure that every women glow in some sort of way, pregnant or not.
We have a light we carry around. It may some time be brighter than other times. We may not recognise it ourselves every day, but our husbands do, our children do, and most importantly our Creator do.
He is the one that put it there in the first place.
He will never let it be blown out even if it’s just a flickering at the best of times. Don’t allow anybody to try and smother it. They can’t!
“A Candle loses nothing by lighting another”
Let us keep our light’s glowing. Let us support other lights glowing and let us appreciate every single women glowing, like the “glowing mom to be” in these images.

my LATEST WORK
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.
