The (New and Improved) Calitz Family

Little Josh is a dream-come-true for Megan.  She’s been talking about having children from the day we met her, which was just before her Wedding, and her joy shone through beautifully during her Maternity Shoot.  She looks so content and comfortable with Josh, like she’s been doing motherhood for years.  John is often away for his work so he only got to meet his son about a week before this shoot.  It was very… Continue reading

Yolandé ‘s Maternity Photos

Beautiful Yolandé and her hubby, Gareth, treated themselves to a very romantic pregnancy shoot.  The plan was to do half of the photos in our studio, and the other half at a nearby park on the same day, but rain forced us to reschedule the lifestyle shoot for a few weeks later.  The rock dassies and rabbits watched our every move while we frolicked around the park in search of pretty light – a fitting symbol of fertility,… Continue reading

Megan and John’s Baby Belly

The Weir-Smiths Welcome Rachel

Sibu’s Baby Shower

In anticipation of the arrival of her second child, a baby boy, Sibu hosted a sophisticated vintage-themed Baby Shower Luncheon at Acorn Lane in Sandton.  Precious Celebrations made it beautiful and ensured that things ran smoothly.  Sibu seemed relaxed, happy, and was glowing in her dusty pink dress.  Soon-to-be-big-sister Hlumie charmed the guests with her huge smiles all day, her warm hugs and her insistence on helping her mom open gifts.  She was also treated to… Continue reading

Allison’s Baby Belly

Remember Fred and Alli from their wedding?  Well, they are about to welcome another member to their family.  Gabriel.  Allison is literally glowing!  Fred is funny and awkward as ever.  I grinned the entire way through this edit, because they are such a happy, funny couple.  Alli chose our half-studio-half-lifetsyle Pregnancy Collection, so we got a great variety of photos for them…..some classic beautiful shots, some fine art portraits, and some cheesy fun… Continue reading
