Newborn | Baby sister Olivia

“In the cookies of life, sisters are the chocolate chips..” – Unknown

I met Marissa & Johan a few years ago for Big Brother Johan’s first pictures. We did a couple of sessions along the way but now it’s little miss Olivia making her debut. Of course a new baby sister means having a super hero big brother hanging around. You will notice in some of the pictures even the lady with the camera is under a watchful eye. 🙂

Marissa & Johan, your family is beautiful and I love being able to see and capture how they grow. Enjoy life’s cookies and especially the chocolate chips and super hero’s……

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.
