❤ Lara 32 Weeks Pregnant ❤

Lara and Hendré are definitely one of the most sweetest couples I have ever met! They flew down from Port Elizabeth to come to Cape Town for this photoshoot.
I had so much fun photographing them! Lara is a bundle of love! She is so adorable! Lara has such a beautiful and kind heart and I instantly just loved her!

Laras aunty Marietjie Hurter is a well-known hair and makeup artist and a dear and very special friend of mine.
Marietjie Hurter did such an amazing job styling Laras hair and makeup for the four different scenes.
Have a look at the end of this blogpost for some behind-the-scenes photos of Marietjie Hurter in fabulous action! :)

Hendré was just amazing, I just loved the way he kept making Lara laugh and giggle! It was so cute!
These are their everyday moments, their special moments, their love is such a great example.

There is always one unpredictable element about outdoor lifestyle photography... the weather... and since we only had one afternoon to do this shoot we could not postpone it, as Lara and Hendré were flying back to Port Elizabeth the very next day. Although it was raining, Lara and Hendré told me they were up for anything!
Not even the rain could dampen their joy! The third scene required us to go into the forest, as we started shooting that scene the rain came pouring down,
I had a translucent umbrella covered in cute black hearts (my moms umbrella - thanks mom!) so we decided to get abit creative and use the cute umbrella as a prop!
It worked out beautifully and I am just loving the creative-fine-art outcome of those umbrella images in the forest! Love how cute her baby bump looks!

This is the beautiful scripture surrounding Sions biblical name:
Psalm 132:13 For the LORD has chosen Zion. (In Afrikaans: Want die Here het Sion uitgekies)

Thanks to Lara and Hendré for being incredibly amazing and for flying down to Cape Town for your maternity shoot.

Your little baby boy, Sion, is going to be so blessed to have parents like the two of you! :)
May the Lord Jesus continue to bless your family and your little angel Sion.

Words cannot describe our thanks and appreciation towards you for the photos you have captured on that beautiful rainy day:) We had so much fun!! You are so relaxed and easy going, I knew from the start we were going to have some great laughs! Thank you for capturing Lara in your own special way. I love the pics in the forest and the one where she sits on the white bench with the turquoise dress (That was your idea, so well spotted:)) Also the pic where she stands on the bridge with her hand on her hip, that is typical fun and joyful Lara:) You know us hubbys are not always keen on having our pictures taken, but this is one shoot I am also very proud of, so thank you Claudia:) And I need to say thank you to Marietjie too, she weathered the cold to be at Lara’s side. Marietjie is Lara’s mom’s identical twin sister. Marietjie, thank you for making Lara look that extra special. If anyone need makeup to be done for any special occasion, hire Marietjie, you will never be sorry that you did! Claudia, we cannot wait to see the rest of the photies. Thank you for blessing us with these great memories. More so may you touch the lives of many more through the spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ! Thanks again, you are the best! "Proverbs 16:15, In the light of the king’s countenance is life, and his favour is as a cloud bringing the spring rain."
