Jana mentioned Llandundo was where she envisioned her maternity session, and my eyes lit up. One of Cape Town’s best beaches and spectacular sunsets, it would be brilliant. We got there with a little extra time while the light was sharp so we started in the greenery that surrounds the beach, then headed down just as the sun was perfect. They said they had never done anything like this before, but you wouldn’t know it. Jana actually suggested just as we were done that we take some wide shots with the sun was dipping to black. Be sure not to miss those at the end, they ended up being my absolute favorites. There’s no photoshop in that colour, its just how incredible the sky was. It was worth staying the few extra minutes. They were naturals and had so much fun with the shoot despite the artic cold waters and a fair bit of wind. I left feeling so expectant for the day they call to say their daughter is on her way.
Dad wrote me the kindest email the day after receiving their images. Just to clue you in, I rarely hear back from many dads, so this meant alot.
