It’s no secret we’re fans of the beach. The sound of the ocean gives a sense of calm and tranquility it’s hard to match. For an expectant mum and dad, a sea side retreat is the perfect place to reflect on the family they are about to become. This beach maternity shoot by South African photographer Dehan Engelbrecht captures the moments of contemplation before Winette & Marthinus’ beach baby arrived.
From Dehan –
Winette asked me to take some portraits of her and her husband on their favourite beach. She wanted to document her time being pregnant with their first child, Joshua, who was born on the 19th of May 2016!
Arriving at Llandudno beach, it was a PERFECT day for photos. The air was clear, with just a few clouds in the sky. The sunset was beautiful and the water was peaceful.
We walked around to take some photos and found a quite spot away from all the people. Winette and Marthinus started getting comfortable and we got a few stunning photos. Then she said she wanted to get in the ice cold South Atlantic sea! This is where a lot of the magic happened, when Winettesat down on the sand and let the water rush by her, it looked like a fine art session straight out of the pages of a magazine!
