Baby Ben

Newborn
Congratulations to Julia and Warren on their handsome baby boy, Ben! He was a little over 6 weeks old on the day of his shoot so all this action was way too interesting for him to sleep through 😀
But he loved posing with his big sister Lexi the ballerina and we captured all his still-tiny details!

 

Baby Mia

Newborn

Congratulations on your beautiful baby Mia, Charmaine & Rudi!

Here are a few more favourites from her newborn shoot – Mia was an absolute star and slept so nicely while we tried to include big ‘brother’ Napoleon in a shot as well as include dad’s helmet 😉

If you’re wondering…we did not balance Mia precariously on the helmet! Photoshop was needed to achieve the end result.

 

Baby Pietman

Newborn
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-…/

Baby Mila

Newborn

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.

Congratulations to the Blanckaert Family!

Baby Ross

Newborn

Luke has a baby brother and he couldn’t stop smiling about it!

We had delayed little Ross’s shoot by about a week so that Luke could recover from a cold. So I was really glad that at just under 3 weeks, Ross was so calm and peaceful for his newborn session at the Bryce-Borthwick home.

Thank you and congratulations to Warren & Janlee on your beautiful second son!

Baby Nikhil

Newborn

Yashoda & Dharmesh welcomed little Nikhil to the family last month. I met them at their beautiful new home when he was just 10 days old for his newborn session.

Big sister Liya and brother Rahul are pretty excited to say the least 🙂

Thank you so much for inviting me to photograph your handsome baby boy!
