Some of you may recall that back in the summer I did a Trash the Dress shoot for Bronwyn and Johan – we had an amazing day and love the images we created. I was delighted when Bronwyn contacted me recently to take her maternity photographs.
Johan and Bronwyn are from South Africa and have been married for two years. Photographs are very special to them. Bronwyn believes that photographs help capture the essence of a moment and preserve memories.
I asked why Bronwyn chose me to take their maternity/newborn photographs – “Jennifer was brave enough to do a trash the dress shoot for us and the photos came out beautifully. She was the first person I thought of when it came to capturing this special time in our lives”
I also asked Bronwyn why maternity photos are important to her – “Maternity photos are important to document this very special time in our lives. This is our first baby and we wanted something we can look back on fondly to remember this time. I also wanted to capture the magnificent transformation that my body has gone through to carry our little human. It is a testament to how wonderful and beautiful a pregnant woman’s body is”
Bronwyn will be making a baby journal so will print some of these images for that. She will also print a photo that Johan and I love and hang it in their bedroom.
I asked what style of maternity shoot did they wanted – “We wanted a natural shoot showing off the bump and our love and these photos have captured that beautifully”
I’m looking forward to creating some beautiful images when their baby arrives in a few weeks time. Bronwyn and Johan have chosen to have a lifestyle type shoot in the comfort of their own home with our little one.
