❤ Minki & Ernst & Baby Katerien at 4 months old ❤

In November last year, I had the incredible honour of photographing Minki Van Der Westhuizen (Joubert) and her husband, Ernst Joubert
and their beautiful little baby girl, 4 month old, Katerien!

Minki is an International Model and TV Presenter of the South African TV Show, Pasella. Ernst is a Rugby Player for Saracens and they now live in St. Albans in England.
Their baby girl, Katerien, was born in July last year. Katerien is a family name and she was named after her grandmother, Carien.

For years I have admired Minki and her sense of style and grace, but meeting her was surreal, she is the most amazing and elegant woman and mother!
One of the things I absolutely love about Minki is her heart!
She has the most kind, generous and loving heart with an abundance of love for her husband Ernst and their beautiful blue-eyed baby girl!

Ernst is such an awesome daddy, and I love the look of love on his face as he adores his wife and daughter!
Minki is the most natural and amazing mother, when I photographed the mother and baby photos, Minki and Katerien just went into a world of their own,
it was so beautiful and I just snapped away as I didnt want to miss any moment.

I wanted to create something really special for Minki and Ernst with this shoot, I wanted to capture their intimate family love, the moments between the moments!
And I just love the way the shoot unfolded to portray something truly beautiful, something special filled with love and joy.
Katerien is the cutest and her big blue eyes melt my heart! Loved all her baby poses and she already knows how to work the camera! Its too cute!

This shoot was truly an honour and I feel so blessed to have been able to photograph this amazing family.
Thank you Minki and Ernst for such a wonderful morning spent with you and your family!
Especially to you Minki, Katerien is a little angel and you are such a wonderful and loving person, you are absolutely beautiful and your inner beauty shines so brightly,
you are an inspiration to every woman!

May the Lord continue to bless you and your beautiful family.
