Lifestyle Maternity Couple Shoot {Lize and Pieter}

Lifestyle Maternity Couple Shoot, Lifestyle Portrait Photographer, Ilze Louw, Overberg, Western Cape, South Africa

What an amazing day and shoot this one was!  This is the kind of photos that gets me all excited!

I love real life, real moments, and therefore lifestyle photography is what I do.

I spent a day in the lives of these two awesome people, whom I’ve known for very long, and who I love dearly.  I captured them just the way they are, going about on a normal day in their beautiful home that they built, decorated and made home to raise their little girl Sophia Karin in about 5 week’s time.

And just because this was just a normal day in their lives, it touched my heart so much to be able to be there and take these photos for them.  I know they will always look at these photos and remember this time in their lives and I know they will show their daughter one day.  So I asked Lize to write something for Sophia.

It is written in Afrikaans, because they are Afrikaans, but it tells the story of this day, real unscripted life and the excitement of spending their lives together as a family.

Don’t stop reading here, because at the end I’ll share the egg muffin recipe Pieter made for us (you can see all the steps in the photos) and which we enjoyed with countless cups of tea and laughter!

Here is Lize’s letter to Sophia:

My liewe Sophia, ek glo jy sal baie vinnig agterkom hoe MIN jou Pappa van foto’s hou!  Mamma kon hom darem met baie moeite oortuig om te staan vir ‘n paar fototjies saam met my en jou (in my maag), sodat ons dit eendag met jou kan deel.  Jy moet tog onthou om eendag vir hom BAIE dankie te sê.

So op ‘n reënerige dag in Junie terwyl Mamma presies 29 weke swanger was het tannie Ilze en tannie Lisa by ons huis opgedaag.  Ons het besluit ons sal die fototjies juis daar moet neem, sodat jy visueel kan weet waar ons gelewe het toe jy binne my gegroei het.

Mamma glo dat elke liewe geleentheid gevier moet word en my swangerskap met jou is geen uitsondering nie.  Lisa het mamma se grimering en hare gedoen – omtrent ‘n bederf gewees.

‘n Ander ding wat jy van jou Pappa sal leer is dat hy baie lekker ontbyt maak!  Mamma het gereken as hy vir ons ‘n ontbyt maak sal hy hopelik van die kamera vergeet.  Ek deel graag die reseppie met jou en sien so uit dat ons drie saam om ons eiland in die kombuis op ‘n Saterdag- of Sondagoggend ontbyt maak.

Die res van die dag het ons geëet, ontelbare koppies tee gedrink, gesels, vuur gemaak en gelag en dit alles terwyl tannie Ilze ons afgeneem het.  Ek hoop jy gaan die foto’s eendag geniet (jy sal ten minste voor Pappa moet maak of jy doen…)!

Baie liefde, jou Mamma xxx

Lisa from Lisa Brown Make-up and Hair Stylist is Pieter’s cousin and she also joined us for the day and did Lize’s hair and make-up, beautifully as always, just like all her work.

Here is the very delicious (and very easy) breakfast muffin recipe of Pieter:

  • Pre-heat oven to 180°C
  • In a pan, fry mushrooms, spinach (and you can also add bacon and onion) until just ready.
  • Mix 6 eggs together with some salt and herbs.
  • Put the fried mushrooms, spinach, bacon and union into the holes of a muffin pan and top with the egg mix.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until done.
  • Top with grated cheese and put it into the oven again for a bit until all the cheese has melted.
  • And then you enjoy it with LOTS of tea…

Dankie Pieter en Lize vir die GROOT voorreg dat ek daar vir een dag kon wees en julle liefde en geluk, mooi huis en hierdie spesiale tyd in julle lewens, kon vasvang.  Baie liefde!
