Waiting for Benke | Johannesburg Maternity Photographer

March 26, 2012

Recently I started venturing more into lifestyle photography – this I normally do at your home and we use elements out of your daily life to really personalise the session.  I love this because it means the photos are really unique only to you.  A favourite photographer of mine always says that a photograph is not about what you look like, but about who you are – and with lifestyle photos its exactly about that – who you are.

It was such a surprise when Johan and Ilse contacted me – I used to go to school with Johan, so it was quite an honour to do their maternity shoot – and to do it as a lifestyle session – and I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of little Benke in April. I think poor Ilse was concerned that we would never get to the shoot though – having last seen Johan about 10 years ago, there were lots of things to catch up on and we had such a lovely (and quite lengthy) chat!  They are an awesome couple and I am certain this is going to be one stunning little girl – both of them are so natural and relaxed in front of the camera and we had lots of laughs and great moments.  I felt really blessed to share these moments with them.

So – enough talk – the proof is in the pudding!  Thank you guys – looking forward to Benke’s arrival! Oh, and Ilse – you look sooo beautiful!
