Lejuan contacted me to book a Year in the Life of … session, which includes a maternity shoot, a newborn session and then a mini shoot each month for baby’s first year.  I love doing this very special package for clients.  Capturing all the changes that happen in a baby’s first year and the milestones that they achieve is so rewarding.  The biggest bonus for me is getting to know the lovely clients who have booked  this package.  And Lejuan and Basil are one such lovely couple.

We had to postpone Lejuan’s session because of the glorious Cape Town rains we were having and so while the day of our shoot was sunny, it was still super chilly!  But we had the most glorious light and such a perfect setting at the Boschenheuvel Arboretum near Kirstenbosch in Cape Town.  If you’ve never been there, do yourself a favour and go.  It is just beautiful and a great space to take the dogs for a walk.  Definitely a hidden gem in Cape Town!

I hope you enjoy these images from Lejuan’s maternity session.  Precious baby Riley made her appearance into the world just a few weeks later and I got to capture all her newborn gorgeousness.  I’ll be posting those images here soon, so watch this space!

Lejuan’s gorgeous flower crown was created by Fabulous Flowers in Claremont.  They have a gorgeous selection of floral arrangements to choose from and a very easy and convenient online shopping experience.  With tomorrow being National Women’s Day in South Africa, why not pop over to their website and order a beautiful bouquet for a special woman in your life.  Or better yet, spoil yourself!
