I waited to meet this baby boy for 6 years. I met Joshua’s mom before I had even started photographing newborns. I had always had a thing for babies and when I saw Joshua’s mom she was just as in love with little babies as I was. I then went on to have my own daughter and seeing her with my little one was just magical. She was born to be a mom. Finally 4 years later it was her turn. Needless to say driving over to Somerset West, 40 minutes from Cape Town I all butterflies in tummy and emotional. Firstly for photographing a friends baby and secondly because I had waited so long to meet this little person. Seeing my friend as a mom really touched and tugged on the heart strings more than I expected and I was so honoured to be capturing his first few days post birth. Here are a few photos that I will look back on years from now and remember. I will remember that feeling when I first hold him in my arms. Babies are such a blessing and that is why those first and very fleeting days are so important to photograph. Here are few photos from that day. This photo session was done in Christmas so I made up a little snow globe Christmas card for them – (template created by Sleep Hollow).
