Jan & Wilna :: Maternity / Family
When Jan and I became friends back in 2001, I never would’ve thought that 10 years down the line I’d be taking photos of Wilna’s pregnancy “bump” – in fact, back then I didn’t even own a decent camera, apart from my “point-&-shoot” 35mm film camera.
Little David will be born in the heart of winter, around 19 July and I wanted to reflect the winter date with a wintery theme – where better then than in a pecan nut orchard, filled with loads of fallen leaves and bare trees! The Bouwmeesters (I recently did a shoot with their daughter Melandi) were kind enough to allow us to do the photo session on their farm and I think the late afternoon winter sun’s light was perfect.
Jan & Wilna, thank you for all the laughs and fun we had and for your patience – your love for your unborn son is evident and I hope I’ve managed to portray not only the love you have for him, but also for one another – David is one blessed little guy and we can’t wait to meet him! (and I can’t wait to do a newborn photo session with him 🙂 )
