If you are reading this – chances are that you are blessed with a precious little Liefiekind growing inside of you as we speak so congratulations! I am in awe of the miracle of life and how strong our female bodies are. As a mother of two I know you don’t necessarily feel beautiful all the time while expecting, but I do know that this is such a special time in your life and needs to be captured. I would love to be part of your story and document this special period in your life. The best time to do this is usually between weeks 28-34. It depends on how you carry and whether it is your first or second baby. If you are unsure of when the best time will be to do the shoot just give me a call so we can chat about it. Every woman is different and unique. This is your journey.
We do the maternity shoot in the comfort of your home or location of choice. We are so lucky to live in Cape Town – one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We really have so many options available to us and a lot of them right here in Durbanville (where I am based, but I also love to travel for shoots). We discuss the look and feel beforehand. Beautiful maternity dresses and make up also available (but completely optional).
If this is not your first child, siblings are obviously included in the shoot. I have a few packages available to suit your specific needs. Please contact me directly for a tailored package, chat about when would be a good “window” to capture your baby belly and available time slots. Looking forward to hearing from you!Book now...
Congratulations – at last your Liefiekind is here! What a wonderful time in your life…your family’s life. This little baby you have been waiting for and dreaming about for so long is here at last! Everything about him or her is so perfect (and small!). Now is the time to do the newborn shoot – within the first two weeks (as close to “day 8” as possible).
With my lifestyle newborn photo sessions we take the photos in the comfort of your home so you do not have to worry about packing diaper bags and juggling feedings and traffic and the weather. I take natural lifestyle images of you with your baby and also of your baby alone. We take the photos in baby’s own environment where he or she feels safe and we can concentrate on what is important – that you as family spend time together without adding any extra unnecessary “stress” to mother or baby, because as a mother I know that the first few days can be a bit overwhelming too.
I know that you as parents would love beautiful images of your little one during this short “window” in which they fall under “newborn”, but you are also tired and sleep deprived like you have never been in your life. I get this – and I have been there! That is why I come to you. With baby’s routine still forming mom can feed whenever necessary in between and everything is at hand for diaper changes too.
Shooting at your home enables me to include elements that tell your family’s unique story visually. I work as unobtrusively as possible and believe that these lifestyle shoots aren’t only gorgeous and unique, but they also capture real life (and I believe life IS beautiful especially because it is not always perfect).
Siblings and grandparents are obviously welcome (please contact me so I can tailor your package to suit your family’s specific needs). Also please contact me for pricing on twins, but don’t worry – I do NOT ask double!

This package is for babies from 2 months to a year (smash the cake shoots available). With the lifestyle baby shoot/milestone shoot I come to your home. I photograph you with your baby as well as your baby alone. I make the photos personal and the flow of the shoot is spontaneous so that your baby’s personality can be captured in the images. If your baby is able to sit I concentrate on sitting poses (and baby lying on his or her tummy) to capture this special milestone in his or her life.
Although I mainly concentrate on baby with this shoot I also include mom and dad. Siblings and grandparents are also welcome (at an extra cost), but please just keep in mind that the more people included in the shoot the less time we have to concentrate on baby and his or her milestones. If you want to include more people I would rather suggest we do a family shoot. Please contact me for an exact quote.
