You’ll remember this couple’s gorgeous Tokai Forest Maternity shoot. Baby’s Smidt decided to come the day I went on-call. This birth included a double gender reveal which is really incredible to capture as the photographer. That’s right, the parents had no idea until he was born. First was with mom as their doctor let mom discover for herself the first time she saw him. Then, we all kept the surprise for dad to discover in the recovery room for himself. His reaction is just a delight. Then his mother becomes a grandmother and her expressions left me teary. Here’s the story of their miracle baby:

When you are done, be sure to see the story continue as we capture Baby Smidt’s newborn photos.

Thank you to the Smidt family for allowing me the privledge to capture your journey to parenthood. All photos shared with family permission.

I joined the Hofmeyrs at one of their favorite spots filled with memories for them, the Protea Hotel Durbanville for their mini-maternity shoot. Mini-maternity sessions are offered complimentary with my birth packages. Its 30 minutes, one location, one outfit and 15 gorgeous images for you to treasure long after you are done being pregnant.

If you can believe it, she is 38 weeks pregnant here! In some photos, I had to figure out a way to even show that she had a belly. Their tenderness and eager expectation for this miracle baby is so evident. They don’t know their child’s gender who was on the way any day. We joked that it would be funny if we continued this shoot straight to the hospital if she went into labour! Check back for their birth story and newborn shoot.
