soon we’ll be four {lau family}

I met up with the lovely Lau family a few weeks ago while they were over here on a short holiday from Switzerland. For their session we decided on a lovely rural setting – and managed to choose a rather freezing afternoon for the shoot! However Barbara, the glowing mommy-to-be, simply took the cold weather in her stride… she was such a trooper!

books & bubbles {röök family}

It was such a joy to meet this lovely family. After an intial shoot in the house we ventured to the nearby park for  a picnic & bubble blowing … the pecfect recipe for fun times (and pictures!)

meet baby milan

Little Milan was born on April 17 to proud mommy and daddy Camelia & Sana Safai. I had great fun photographing a lovely expectant Camelia (click HERE for the shoot) and was really excited to meet this little man for the first time – and to be able to photograph him too. We had a choice of the sweetest little  hats / wraps available for this shoot, all knitted  by friends and family. How precious. x

and a favourite of mine.

everyday joys

sometimes I just forget to document the ordinary… being so focused on taking specific pictures for projects or clients,  the loveliness of just ‘being’ is sometimes forgotten. hence here is today – a reminder of the simple joy of seeing our little one loving bath time. it’s such a fun & anticipated event in our household every evening with it’s very own set of rituals designed by her, be it the ‘mermaid roll’, her noddy-doll needing to swim or the princess ‘dress-up’ afterwards. i hope these will help me remember these precious times. she’s growing up so fast.

p.s. the spotted cheeks? she declared herself pippi longstocking for the day…

a happy little chap

Capturing little Calla required some quick footwork … he has boundless energy and runs around no end! Seeing his little jolly face in these pics still makes me smile every time  though – he’s just so happy one can’t but be affected when together.  Jobeana & Lambertus, thank you for kindly letting me share these. Hopefully we will see you & little Calla again soon. xxx

Looking forward to seeing you

meet oscar

I really love photographing newborns and had such a fun morning together with 8-week old little Oscar and mom Martina close to the end of last year. It’s such a privilege  to witness the precious bond between a mom and her new little bundle, the love so visible when they’re snuggling up together. Many wishes for much joy with this new little bundle dear Martina. x
