Newborn Photography │ Luan Viljoen
“You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.” ~Desmond Tutu
Having your newborn photography session is hard work, but this little guy was just amazing and handled it like a pro! He was just one happy content bub that loved being cuddled by his new family.
Little Luan was born a few weeks ago (If you missed the blog post on his birth click HERE) to Dad Rickus, Mom Tharina and Big Brother Rian. He is adored and loved, as you will see in the images below, and completes the circle of family for the Viljoens. I loved spending time with them and his dad was a blast to photograph!
He is not only a gift to his own family, but also to mine.
The Viljoen family might not be blood related but they are a blessing from above and part of my Family
Our family started out on a couple of KTM motorbikes (you’ll see some motorbike accessories in the pictures below ;)) and grew to a family of friends that have been irreplaceable in the past 2 years. The dads of the family will get together early Saturday mornings on their orange machines and meet up afterwards for a braai with the wives and kids. (I’ll do a post on the orange machines in the new year and tell you all about the purpose of these weekly motorbike meetings)
We have all prayed and hoped for little Luan, and now that he is here we can’t thank God enough for this little soul! He has changed his mom and dad’s lives already and have captured the hearts of many.
Little Luan Viljoen, may you always know how loved and treasured you are, how adored and special and may you keep on touching lives around you as you have already done in this short, short time you have been a part of our journey on earth.
Love you lots Viljoen’s, thanks for being the special friends to my family that you are!!!

my LATEST WORK
“Birth is supposed to be a private event a special intimate feeling. I assured him that Sam is super professional, a beautiful curtain taking pictures.” One moment we were two and the next moment a baby cried and we turned into tree. No not magic but a miracle.
There was no hesitation or fear, just sheer determination. And then Alba’s head came out. A few more big pushes, and shoulders and body followed. Alba’s face was looking up at us from under the water, and everything stood still. I was in a complete daze and just heard Karen say, “Take your baby, take your baby”. I lifted Alba out of the water and onto my chest.
