Thinking of Michelle & Jonathan who will be meeting their little boy Hunter for the first time today! We met at the family home for Mich’s maternity session so that we could also get a few shots with their fur babies :-)
Looking forward to seeing you again soon as a family of 3!
The du Preez’s recently welcomed 7-day old Pietman to their home!
To say Pietman’s dad, Pieter (or “Supa Piet” as he’s known) is a legend is somewhat of an understatement. Pieter is a C6 quadriplegic after a tragic accident in 2003 which left him with no movement from his shoulders down. He has no movement in his fingers and hands and little/no movement in his triceps…but that hasn’t slowed him down.
In the last couple of years alone he has achieved double gold medals at the Paracycling World Championships, he is a course record holder in the Berlin Marathon, he is the first C6 quad to complete a full 70.3 Ironman and has since completed 4 and he is the world record holder in this event. And most recently he swam the 8km Robben Island swim…a world first for a quadriplegic. He is an actuarial analyst at Deloitte – where I first had the pleasure of meeting him.
Illse has been his number one supporter and fan – they just celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary!
Now they’re embarking on a new adventure which Pieter affectionately calls his latest achievement as… IRONDAD ;-)
Pieter is helping raise funds for the Wings For Life Foundation (not-for-profit spinal cord research foundation). You can find out more here: http://www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com/…/help-us-raise-funds-…/
Donna & Jean welcomed little baby Mila to their family recently! Here she was just 7 days old :-)
The little knitted jersey & crocheted blanket were made by Mila’s great gran for her gran when she was born, then passed down to her mom and now Mila! And the beautiful quilt was made just for Mila by her gran.
