JOHANNESBURG MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER | The power of three

johannesburg maternity photographer

 

After being away from blogging for a couple of weeks (life really gets crazy all at once!), I’m glad to be back blogging in full force this week!

 

This family is divine – almost ethereal. Mom is expecting her third girl, and I have no doubt that she will be as absolutely stunning as her mom and two big sisters.

I fell in love with Mom’s choice of outfit – the all white ensemble blew me away. But boy, did it give me a challenge – we shot this session in the middle of the day! (any fellow photographers reading this will know how difficult that is!)

All challenges taken into consideration, I am so so happy with how this session turned out – it definitely didn’t hurt having such a gorgeous family to work with 😉

JOHANNESBURG MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER | Stylin’ Sunday – Elegant Maternity Outift

Johannesburg maternity photographer

 

Welcome to Stylin’ Sunday, where I will share with you what I think will look good for your photo shoot! Remember that these are only my own opinions – of course, our tastes will differ, but this is just a rough guideline to give you an idea of what colours complement each other and what styles look great in photos. Something important to take into consideration is the feel you are wanting to achieve in your images – are we going edgy and urban? Are you more the soft and romantic type? Or perhaps you would prefer something timeless and stylish. You can browse through my Pintrest Board where every edition of Stylin’ Sunday will be posted for you to draw inspiration from. Please pay attention to your choice of wardrobe for your photo shoot as well as your accessories; your outfits are extremely important. However, the most important thing is for you to be comfortable with what you are wearing as we want your outfit choices to reflect who you are – if you feel awkward on the day of your photo shoot, this will reflect in your images.

Still unsure about what you want to wear? Drop me an email at info@chriscrossphotography.co.za and I’ll gladly help you find something that will be perfect for you!

JOHANNESBURG NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER | Hello, gorgeous!!

Johannesburg newborn photographer

 

 

As a newborn photographer,  it never ceases to amaze me how absolutely perfect newborns are. For me, newborns are so incredibly amazing to photograph. A LOT of hard work goes into getting those gorgeous sleepy images, but it is so worth it. Newborn images are so magical and so important to get, because they are tiny for such a short period that you forget quickly just how small they really are.

JOHANNESBURG MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER | The Generations

I’ve known this beautiful couple for a while now and was THRILLED when they asked me to do their maternity photos. Mom wanted to incorporate her mom and grandmother into the session too – four generations – amazing right?!

After we took the generational photos, we headed to one of my all time favourite locations – Delta Park. The light was absolutely divine, and the love between these two is absolutely tangible.

JOHANNESBURG MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER | Lifestyle Maternity

Lifestyle maternity sessions are close to my heart – there is little to no forced posing that goes into them, and the effect is always a subtle intimacy. I love photographing maternity sessions; it is easily one of my favourite genres of photography. There is just something so incredible about capturing this time in a woman’s life – the pregnancy is over so quickly, so the fact that I am able to create beautiful maternity portraits to remember this amazing time by just makes me feel downright giddy!

This beautiful family is very special to me – I have seen their little family grow, and I absolutely adore them. If you have been following me for a while, you might remember them from their family shoot a couple of years ago.

We decided on a lifestyle type of maternity photo shoot, at their family home. We wanted something simple, elegant and intimate. This family is stunning, so it was an absolutely gorgeous session.

Here are just a few of my favourites:

JOHANNESBURG MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER | Elegant Maternity

beautiful elegant african woman pregnant

This elegant maternity photo shoot was exactly what we had in mind – timeless and classically beautiful.

The first thing that went through my mind when I met this beautiful mommy to be was “that is an absolutely perfect baby bump”. I feel absolutely privileged to have been able to capture this incredible time in her life.

She is spunky, determined and has an awesome sense of humour (I don’t say this often enough, but I LOVE my clients!). She was also a dream to photograph – a complete natural in front of the camera with hardly any assistance from me needed.
