“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory” – Dr Suess


I have a little more time at the moment ,emphasis on little, and I’m determine to sort out my own pictures. Starting with my, now 10 month olds,  newborn session. (I will still show you those) But I came across these, taken on the same day as the newborn session. She was only 5 days old in these photos. I could not even remember that I have taken these, but looking back in the archives these are so much more valuable to my heart than the “NEWBORN SESSION” I am so glad I have taken these. Yes your newborn sessions and annual family photos have there place, a very important place but don’t let them be the only pictures you take.

This is ouma giving her, her bath. She will never fit into ouma’s hands just like that.

I guess what I’m trying to say take photo’s every single day!

Treasure these moments and don’t look back at them right away. Leave them for a while to simmer, these moments get better as your memories fades, and I quote Dr Suess :” Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory” Pictures are the only thing that is witness to your memories, don’t forget to take them ……

Pregnant in a time of Corona

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.
