Living on a Golf Estate overlooking a beautiful dam, does offer a Lifestyle Photographer the grounds to explore multitudes of backgrounds.
This Maternity Shoot however was slightly out of the norm, as the precious Mom-to-be, who happens to be my cousin too, was experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions during the shoot, or so we thought.
With great caution we went about the Ferreira Family Maternity photoshoot, keeping it simple with soon to be big brother, Vini, and Dad, Vince lovingly supporting Monica, while I captured these moments with the sunset, creating a golden light to further compliment the photoshoot.
So about those Braxton Hicks contractions, well after the photoshoot and just to be sure everything was ok with Mom and baby, off to the hospital we went, only to find out that Monica was actually experiencing normal contractions during the Maternity shoot. Baby Mila was clearly very eager to made her appearance, of which she did, well and healthy the following day.
Cutest Mila has brought joy to all our lives, and to think that she will be turning 2 in just a few months....
