Ryan and Lizelle | Baby Groger

It’s not every day that I invite clients back to my house for a bath. Actually, I’ve never done that!
But when Lizelle heard that her sister had bought her a gift voucher for a photoshoot with me, we instantly started to plan for a milk bath!

After doing a maternity session in a field with Ryan and Lizelle, we headed back to my house to get Lizelle soaking in a (coconut) milk bath. It was so much fun preparing for this session and seeing the end result, these beautiful photographs of Lizelle make me really wish I did a maternity session when I was pregnant with Ella.

It’s always such a privilege to be able to tell a part of a couple’s story – whether it be their wedding day or later on, when their first child is on the way!

Enjoy this little preview Ryan and Lizelle, and all the very best! I know you’re both going to be INCREDIBLE parents! <3

Beautiful Erasmus Family on Umhlanga Beach

Beautiful Erasmus Family on Umhlanga Beach

Is there anything sweeter than a new family? The guessing (is she tired? is she hungry? Is she cold), the joys of each new milestone, the courage, and the teamwork.
I know these feelings all too well!

Eugene, Elana and tiny little Milana visited Umhlanga recently and decided to remember their holiday with a beach family shoot. But a tired little Milana had other plans and only wanted to sleep!
We snapped up these few pics as the sun was setting and before this beautiful little family returned on their way to the Free State.  x

I can’t believe it’s almost been a month since we welcomed our little girl into this world! Everyone, meet Ella Grace Jacobs!

She’s perfect in every way, and we’re so in love with her! She came into the world on November 6 at 1.04pm, weighing just 3kg. <3

Thank you to everyone for the wishes and the patience while I take a little break to spend time with Ella. I’ll be back in action at the end of February and am so excited for all the weddings that I have lined up in the new year!

Thomas and Lisa | Mom and Son

Thomas and Lisa | Mom and Son

What a handsome little baby Thomas is!

Lisa is one of my sister’s friends and together with husband, Ben are the proud parents of this little bundle. The sun was shining but the wind had picked up on the day of Thomas’ shoot so we decided to do the shoot in the comfort of his own nursery and mom’s bedroom. Lisa and Ben have a beautiful home so it made for the perfect setting.

Enjoy the photos (look out for my Godson right at the end!).
