Veerle and Edwin: pre-baby (or: pregnant)

I feel so weird categorizing these posts as ‘pregnant’. It’s not like Edwin suddenly got bigger boobs you know. Either way THEY are having a baby. Soon! It’s so exciting! I’ve known Edwin forever. And Veerle a bit shorter than forever. And they’re going to be a mom and dad. And they are SO COOL about it. Dear god I’d be panicking all over the place.

Nevertheless these two had time to bake me cookies, give me tea and peptalk me through the day (I have a serious shoulder injury going on, which started the day before their shoot. Could not lift a water bottle. Not kidding).

Please enjoy these two pretty people. I know I did!

Cooper’s (first) birth(day)

Oh boy. I got to photograph something so special. Amazing Kim and Ron allowed me to be there with them during the birth of their son Cooper. I’m still completely awed when I look back at the pictures and am stoked I get to share them with you.

image

As you can imagine I’ve never been present during a birth (apart from my own but well, memory is limited). So everything was NEW. The midwife was really cool about me being there and explaining me all kinds of things. This gadget makes you hear the little babies heartbeat. Which sounds like an army marching IMO.

image

Dads can’t really do much but wait. This is such a Ron picture. At least as I know him :)

image

Of course they can hold hands. Which is completely their job.

image

Lots of THINGS. I’m not sure what and how. It’s quite a science.

image

The only thing I was worried about, was seeing Kim in pain. And I predicted that right. It’s so hard seeing someone you care about in a lot of pain.

image

She was a super hero btw. She was not feeling too great at all here but still all smiles at the staff and nurses. As far as I’m concerned she could have been yelling at everyone and still be totally OK in my book.

image

Those nails! Most stylish birth ever.

image

Also on the toes. Of course.

image

I think this is one of the most emotional pictures I ever took. I promised myself to photograph the ‘story’ as it developed. And so I did.

image

I AM SO PROUD OF HER. AND I TOTALLY CRIED.

image

This is Cooper! He was superchill straight away. He did the obligatory cry and then just chilled and looked around. It was such an amazing moment. This is the first picture. Ever. He had been in the world for mere seconds. Wow.

image

Look at those little smudgy feet. Aw!

image

Dad got to do the honors!

image

<3 so much love

image

Kim’s mother was there as well. She was such a support. Everyone was such a support!

image

Many peeking at the new family member!

image

Dad has to make the phonecalls ofc.

image

Obsessed with feet. Yes. SO TINY.

image

See? Just chilling. Looking around like a boss. Totally on top of things.

image

Just in case I messed up ;)

Oh wow I’m still so honored to have been allowed there. It’s so amazing to realize that little baby is only minutes old. I was on such a natural high the days after.

Thank you Kim and Ron (and Cooper!). Thank you! I hope I get to do this again for someone someday :)

Sunny day in Hoek van Holland (With Dakota & Kim & Ron)

Yay! There’s a little baby coming and there was a card needed to announce this. Also I got promised hugs and kisses from the CUTEST cutiepie of all: Dakota.

So off to Hoek van Holland I went. WIth my camera. OFC. Where Ron had magically made his awesome jeep appear. So awesome! Ofcourse I wanted to be in it for the ride to the beach. So I was cold in 10 seconds. But no less awesome.

image

image

LOOK. It has buttons to signal left and right. It’s so cool.

image

I’m not sure how I like glitter shoes and military vehicles at the same time but I guess I do. SO cooooool!

image

Specially with cute girls on them! The little doggy is Dixie. As Dakota announced loudly when I arrived “THIS IS DIXIE”. So. That was cleared up. Dixie can always be found near Dakota. She tried to climb up on the jeep. SUCH CUTE.

image

I has a stick! And will absolutely not do whatever it is we’re here for.

image

OH whatever. BYE.

image

OH WAIT I can chase my dad with it, GREAT!
We were definitely not here to make photos of her chasing her dad with a stick. But as the photo for the card will have the name of the sibling to be on it. I can’t show everything ;)

image

But I can show the gorgeous mommy!

image

STUNNER.

Obviously I can’t wait to make photos of little baby fingers and feet. For now I’m super happy with this sunny day spent on the beach and drinking hot coco with lovely people.

Guiguitte and Lizz

You’ve got that right, these girls are as wonderful as their names are!

Together with lovely Florence I got to do this amazingly fun shoot. The girls were well prepared with many outfits and I can’t really choose or edit cause I love them all so you will just have to look at tons of pics ;)

OH yeah obviously the story! Theyre close friends who both will have babies soon. So awesome to be able to do that together right?

This is Guiguitte! 

And this is Lizz then of course =)

So 1000 points for the outfits so far right!? Not to worry there’s more :)

And the gorgeous award goes to…!

Love love love!

Some people just have great hair. If I did that I would look like cousin it :P

The water was actually very cold! So wow Guiguitte!

Oh I had so much fun with this shoot! Lovely make-up and hair by Florence and lovely girls to hang out with! We even got cake! Woo!
