Cape Town Birth Photographer » blomerusphotography.com

The journey from pregnant to parents is one I specialize in capturing. I know its full of joy, trepidation, expectation, and blur of time gone too fast. Before you know it you are so deep in toddler land, this chapter is gone!

I’m documenting this couple’s journey from maternity, to having a newborn, and every 2 months in between until their baby year is complete. It will go by faster than they know it!

This dreamy light and their love made for the easiest one hour on location. They were glowing in anticipation!

If you are expecting and I’m fully booked for births or birth photography isn’t quite your thing, you can always book maternity/newborn sessions with me like this one. All of my packages include most gorgeous luxury heirloom album for you to enjoy all your photos off your screen and in your hands. Inquire here.

Enjoy this couples’ images. My thanks to them for hiring me!

After their dreamy maternity session, they are parents! No longer pregnant. Emma is home, tiny and new. All her features so petite it makes your heart swoon. In the comfort of her nursery and her home, we chronicled the start of her baby year.

Watch this space – I will be visiting Emma every two months for a photo shoot just like this one. Although I do offer a One Year Later Session, as well as coverage for special events like bris, baptisms, birthdays and family sessions exclusively to my clients, I must admit that this is the first time that I will have the privilege of so regularly checking in and capturing the growth of a baby. Emma’s parents booked my Maternity & Newborn Package and we added on these mini shoots to document her first year. I have to hand it to them, it was such a good idea!

Her parents have prepared a gorgeous baby safari inspired nursery with grey neutrals and still incredibly functional. If you are looking for some really unique decor items, check out where many of their key pieces are from: Fable Lifestyle & Baby.

More than anything, may she see how loved and wanted she was right from the start.

As a new parent, life can often feel like a really fast rollercoaster ride. But nothing goes by faster and catches you by surprise more than the speedy growth and development of your baby. Blink, and you might just miss it!

Emma’s parents decided that they would like to capture the preciously fleeting moments of their little girl’s first year.  Here she is at just two months new in her gorgeous nursery, kitted out with some really unique decor items from Fable Lifestyle & Baby. When you compare these photos to her newborn session, it’s extraordinary to see how much she has changed in such a short period of time (especially noticeable when she’s lying next to her letter board!). Not only her physical features and size but it’s so clear to see how her personality has blossomed.

Although I do offer a One Year Later Session, as well as coverage for special events like bris, baptisms, birthdays and family sessions exclusively to my birth clients, I must admit that this is the first time that I will have the privilege of so regularly checking in and capturing the growth of a baby. Not only will Emma’s parents be able to relive her early childhood – the childhood that so unexpectedly rushes past without warning – Emma herself will be able to witness the pure love and joy that her parents experienced, even though they were on a wild rollercoaster ride!

Enjoy the beautiful Emma and her parents 2 months NEW.

On a moody, overcast, starting to drizzle sunset beach, I joined up with Roxanne for her complimentary mini-maternity shoot. There is something incredible about the dark clouds and the feeling of rain in the air, especially for Cape Town. We shot this in like 22 minutes because we started feeling the light rain drops.

This beautiful rite of passage is hers. While her tummy and her baby are tiny, she’s celebrating the miracle inside. Sometimes the best gifts in life come in small packages.

Enjoy their session just before becoming three. I can’t wait to capture their baby’s arrival!

See that picnic basket? Its not a prop. Its their actual one from awesome travel they have done together. They stocked it with real goodies and mementos from home and we headed to Signal Hill as the sunset. Isn’t this gorgeous?!

Picnics like these are part of what makes Cape Town so special. As they marked one of the last times they would be able to do this without organizing a babysitter or bringing along baby essentials, their friendship shines.
