Usually when I post maternity and newborn sessions I post the maternity and then the newborn – no surprises there! So I decided to change things up a bit, combine the two and post one blogpost with only black and white images and one with colour. I have a special love for black and white images, to me they are timeless and classy. With no colour you can really just focus on the image – the light – its clean and uncomplicated.
So the first post will be – you guessed it – the black and white images from this special shoot.
I really like my job. I wonder how many people can honestly say that. I love meeting people, meeting their kids, being excited over the new babies, having a glimpse at the nursery in progress, seeing the end result, living from sunrise to sunrise, chasing light at sunset…what is there not to like? And now and then something exciting happens…like meeting the Steyns and their lovely little boy.
Yup – I work Saturdays, I’m not really a sport enthusiast, so suffice it to say I had no idea who booked me. My husband, reading an email over my shoulder while we were on holiday, put two and two together…and were it not for that little moment of inconsideration…I would have walked into their house completely unaware.
I needn’t have worried though – these two are so easy to talk to, absolutely adore each other and were so excited over the arrival of their little man – that I really enjoyed their sessions. Christelle is absolutely gorgeous, elegant and such a comfortable mom and Morne was so in love with his little boy – they are awesome together!
So here then, is part 1 – a couple of the black and white images…
