Anya’s Maternity shoot & Emily’s arrival

At the end of 2013 I had a special on Maternity/Newborn Shoots and Anya Black decided that it was a good idea and purchased one. So on the 5th January, when she was close to her date, she decided it was time to do the Maternity shoot which we shot at the Helderberg Nature Reserve on a very overcast day. Then finally Emily was born on 18th January, which is my mom’s birthday (just by the way) and we eventually did the newborn shoot on the 26th January, 2014 when Emily was only 8 days old. We then did another shoot again on the 16th March (which was my late sister’s birthday). I loved the way that Derrick and Anya included their first child Lilli-Hannah in EVERYTHING and made her feel a part of the whole pregnancy and birth. Lilli-Hannah is crazy about her new sister and about her parents and I hope that you can see the love in these images that I have captured over the course of the 3 shoots.
