Pregnancy Bucket list for Mama.

November 6, 2017

Pregnancy. What a special time.  A time to cherish, enjoy, remember… Yes, we’ve all heard it over-and-over again and although it’s true, this is not always easily done. Work, having other little ones, feeling less than “glowing”… all of these things can make it a little difficult to stop and enjoy these 9 months of growing another human. Now, post baby number 3, I’m looking back at all our pregnancies and I’ve come up with a little “pregnancy bucket list”…

The birth of Ava Loïs

September 6, 2017

Today our Ava is two months old. I celebrate by sharing her birth story. It took me a while to post because finding words to describe the emotions and experience of that day is impossible, but I’ll try my best. So here goes… Being my 3rd Caesarean section you’d think I’d be calm, knowing what to expect and ready for the day. This however was not the case. I felt more nervous and anxious than ever before. The knowledge of…

Style the Bump: Gelique Couture

August 14, 2017

Last week I shared our FAMILY MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT AMONGST THE LAVENDER FIELDS. By far one of my fondest memories of this 3rd pregnancy.

One of the woman (and businesses) at the heart of it all was Angelique du Toit from Gelique Couture. Gelique Couture, a proudly South African design house specialising in bridesmaid dresses and wedding attire. That…

Milk bath Maternity Photoshoot: A Cleopatra moment.

August 1, 2017

Pregnancy circa 2016 / 2017 and Milk Bath Maternity Shoots are all the rage. I completely get the appeal… Unleashing your inner Cleopatra in a time when you are creating life; why not? At 1st I was on the fence; not sure if I should take the milky plunge but then I came across the most beautiful purple roses and I simply couldn’t resist. The purple had me and although I never liked purple much it would become a re-occurring…

Body Paint inspired Family Maternity Photoshoot

June 29, 2017

Maternity shoots are usually all about the belly, the mommy and the love between the couple that helped create this new little human. When you are blessed to experience a 2nd, 3rd or even 4th pregnancy, siblings add to the joy and while expecting our second little girl back in 2014 we knew we wanted to include big sis, Eliana in a family maternity photoshoot. Being only 2 at the time and naturally camera shy, posing wasn’t really her thing…
