One Year Later: Breathtaking Bakoven Family Shoot | Cape Town Birth Photographer

You may recognize this family welcoming their third child, a daughter. I called this image “Three Men and their Little Lady”. Its one of my favourite of siblings meeting. A year goes by in blink. So much changes! The adjustment to life with three may be exhausting, but its also so quick. Their family wanted updated photos of what life looks like now a year later from their daughter’s birth. The boys have grown a bit. Their baby girl is officially a toddler. Its all so bittersweet.

I loved the contrast of having all of them at their different stages. Teeth separating and about to fall out. Long limbs and chubby left over baby legs. Whispy boy hair and giggles. You just don’t realize how little even your big kids are until a decade goes by.

We braved the chilly Cape Town winter morning to get amazing light. Let me tell you, that’s not a small feet to pull off with three children before the sun rises. My hats off to them! It was worth it though. Her hopes were for lots of portraits of her children and what they are like at this age. Mission accomplished.

My special thanks to Jasmine Selembo for her on-location assistance. She’s a pro with littles!

Family sessions are exclusively offered to my existing clients only. So if you have (or one day plan to) hired me for your maternity/newborn sessions or birth coverage, I am available onwards to capture your family as it grows. I offer this exclusively to clients because of my limited availability and not the general public because I believe in the chemistry and trust required to get these images. It’s how I roll best. Contact me if you would like one of your own.




Maybe its not your time to book me yet, but sign up so that when it's your turn, you know where to find me. I send out an exclusive newsletter that's not spammy in the least!
