George Maternity Photographer

Truter Family

An afternoon forest Maternity Portrait shoot with the Truter family. We did this shoot in an incredibly beautiful forest in George, at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains. The Garden Route offers so many different shoot locations. For this shoot, I loved the forest, as we could include this family’s beautiful (and busy) 4 leg furry kids.

It is important to put in effort for a maternity shoot. The effort most definitely shows in the end result. Ruth hired a maternity dress and a professional makeup artist did her makeup and hair (what a difference it made!).

So after your maternity shoot, what is next? It differs from family to family, BUT I would highly suggest to budget ahead and book an in hospital Fresh 48 and newborn shoot. Fresh 48 photography is a special session for those new families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented. They’re usually taken in the hospital where you’ve given birth – but of course if you give birth at home they can be captured in your home environment as well. The essence of them is to capture those first fresh 48 hours with your baby – which is where the term ‘Fresh 48’ comes from. Babies change so much, and they change so fast!!! One minute their little fingers and toes are wrinkly, and the next they’re not.
