Location maternity and newborn photography is something I enjoy shooting throughout Johannesburg and to keep life interesting, it’s always nice to take pictures at different venues. We shot the maternity pictures at Casalinga and then took baby’s newborn pics at home.
I’ve known this couple for a few years now, so working together was a lot of fun and we got some beautiful maternity portraits despite finishing the shoot covered in blackjacks after I spotted a cool location to shoot in and we had wandered through before realising the little horrors were everywhere, LOL.
The couple have two Dachshunds who, of course, featured in baby’s newborn shoot.
They weren’t very impressed with their new baby sister and managed a couple of pictures with her before toddling off back to their beds.
Newborns are very easy to work with when they are sleeping and after they have been fed. We managed to time things perfectly so that this little lady was super chilled and cooperative.
Baby woke up half way through the shoot, so I was able to capture some portraits of her with her eyes open too.
Portraits with Mom and Dad are always a win.
And this is my favourite portrait from the shoot, she is just so adorable.
