Ben is no longer a baby, he’s on his way to being a big brother. Here’s his birth story if you missed it.
What I love about incorporating an older sibling in a maternity session is the perspective and layers it adds. It’s not just your bump. There’s the context of how old they were when this chapter of your family story was happening. A pregnancy with a toddler is a busy one, you are running after while growing another. All the nuances of that we can capture when we include them. Maternity sessions like these also capture the love and friendship between a couple as they await their baby. This couple exudes that kind of affection even through a tough pregnancy and raising a toddler who is a gentle soul.
She wanted something a bit different. I suggested this beach location that feels more like a desert with its white sands. I had never shot there at sunset, but I must admit I loved the yellows and pinks it as it was something magical. You would never guess this is Cape Town!
Enjoy their awaiting-to-be- four family maternity session and then when their daughter was born. It’s beautiful!
