Elana and Bertus’s Maternity Shoot

I had the absolute privilege to be in South Africa when one of my best friends, Elana, was pregnant. I got to capture her with her beautiful bump and her wonderful husband, Bertus.  Elana was 5 months pregnant at the time with their little boy, Christiaan.

As expected, it was a scorching hot day.  We took the photos in an open field near their house towards the end of the day.  The light was amazing and we were able to use some very special family heirlooms such as the blanket which was hand crocheted by Elana’s grandmother and the vintage camera, which belonged to Elana’s granddad.

I just wish I could’ve been there to photograph Christiaan as a newborn.  Maybe with the next one!  😉

Here are a few of my favourites:
