remember the images of the adorable ‘miracle baby‘ i shared recently?
well, here’s the maternity session we had prior to his arrival – and just before mom had to spend the remaining pregnancy weeks in hospital…
nevertheless, i hope these images will help to remember the pregnancy fondly. of course, the family dogs ‘happy’ and ‘lucky’ had to be a part of the session too!

as you know, i’m passionate about giving my clients more than just digital files which will most likely rot away on a cd or usb in a drawer somewhere… and with technology changing so fast, in a few years time it will likely even no longer be possible to access the files on a regular computer. that’s why i find it really important to also give you something tangible after a session with me – and thereby making sure you’ll be able to enjoy your images every day!
coffee table albums are a great way to enjoy your beautiful family photos (and show them off to your family and friends, too! ;)) – and they are sure to become family heirlooms! your children will one day sit on the sofa and look through the album with their own children…
have a look:

with nele, my older daughter, i have a special photo session just for her each year for her birthday. for my little one, maxi, i did monthly mini-sessions for her first year of life, and now want to start the same tradition of yearly shoots with her. maxi turned two a couple of weeks ago, so it was about time we did her session today!
maxi has a very special best friend – lauren. she talks about lauren all the time, they play together at kindergarten, they have regular playdates, they have been on holiday together… so in addition to taking photos of maxi, i wanted to capture this special friendship for her and lauren too. when i then stumbled across this pretty little tea-set, the session set-up idea was born: let’s have a tea party!
and here they are – two little best friends, partying away!

after photographing her older sister when she was around the same age, i was very happy to come back and photograph this gorgeous, smiley baby girl and her family! after lots of baby-cuteness, of course we also concentrated on big sis, who showed me her room, her favourite toys – and pretty much all her stuffed animals at once! i love the images of her cuddling her stuffed toys, and my favourites of little sis are the ones where dad is holding her up by the window.
what do you think?

after your kids have been fighting all weekend, it is then obviously an amazing idea to take them out for an impromptu sibling photo shoot on sunday evening, right? right… even better if you forget to bring mosquito spray! well, all things considered, i think i should be quite happy with these:

this little guy truly is a miracle baby!
from a car accident at the beginning of the pregnancy (in the hospital mom and dad then found out he was on his way!), to early labour and hospitalisation of mom for the last 2 months of her pregnancy, to being born 4 weeks before the due date, to flatlining during birth and requiring an emergency c-section… he came through it all, is happy and healthy, passes all his milestones early and has the cutest giggle ever!
his parents are so in love and so proud, and: his mom is one exceptionally strong and all-around-wonderful woman! enjoy your sneak peek!

how did you feel when first ‘meeting’ your baby?
wet! it was a water birth… ;)
totally in love! exhausted, but over the moon!

what is your favourite physical feature of your baby?
his feet, his mouth, his cute little baby-bum… everything really!

5 words to describe your baby:
perfect
beautiful
fragile
tine
a gift!

in what way does your baby’s personality already shine through?
he is extremely curious and eager to take in his surroundings.
it’s as if he can’t wait to finally be able to play with his older siblings!

and here’s a little ‘before & after’ that i put together for mom:
