Pretoria Maternity Photographer

Rautenbach Family

I just love to be a Pretoria maternity photographer. It is so exciting to photograph this special time in a family’s life. I honestly think I have the best job in the whole world!

Just like any other job, preparation for a shoot is very important to ensure that the final product is wow. I always try to prep and help my clients to the best of my ability with the right suppliers for our photo session.

Here are a few things that are important for a shoot:
  1. Clothes (the right colour scheme for the chosen location)
  2. Location (I have a list of locations that we can choose from)
  3. Makeup and hair (even if you are not the “makeup type”, I still highly suggest you make use of a professional).

For this shoot we decided on a family-friendly location and a farm like look and feel. How super cool is it to shoot on a farm in the middle of a city! Irene Dairy farm is perfect for a family shoot with all the farm animals, beautiful trees and big open spaces. I absolutely love it when a family puts in effort for a shoot. The effort definitely shows in the final product =) We had the most beautiful golden hour (any photographer’s dream!). Most venues in Gauteng have a venue fee, but it is totally worth it. I always just feel safer when I know that there is security at the location.
