Lenita’s 1st Pregnancy Shoot at the Amazing Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens in Roodepoort

Lenita Pregnancy Shoot at Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens in Roodepoort

Lenita and Matthew reached out to us for their Pregnancy Shoot to document her third Trimester. We had originally met through the wedding of a mutual friend. The venue selected was the scenic Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens in Roodepoort, Johannesburg.

Timing of Pregnancy Shoot

If there’s a good month to have an outdoor Portrait shoot, then it’s September! The last traces of winter was seen in the bare trees and brown leaves on the ground. But that biting chill has lifted as the warm Spring sun is gladly welcomed. Lenita’s choice of a royal blue dress complemented her golden complexion perfectly. And her Bump was nice and snug. The picnic area at the Botanical Garden’s waterfall served as the backdrop for the Portraits.

The spacious area allowed Matthew and Lenita to share some beautiful private moments together, sharing giggles and smiles inbetween their posing cues. It’s important to provide direction for posing (to give guidance to the couple), but to allow a natural and fun experience as they enjoy the moments creating memories to cherish for the rest of their lives.

The Pregnancy shoot ended with some fun themed-photos. Both are avid Manchester United fans, and had prepared for their baby to enter the world as a supporter of the Red Devils.

We pray for a wonderful birthing experience for Matthew and Lenita, as they welcome baby Wyatt into the world

“Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
    you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
    Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
    I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
    you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
    how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
    all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
    before I’d even lived one day.”

Psalm 139:13-16 (MSG)
