Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I am very happy to share this wonderful news with everybody.
Little Conrad has decided that he don’t want to wait till Monday 27 January 2014 to be born. He wanted to see the world and meet all these voices cooing around his mommies tummy. Yesterday evening around 6h00 we got a phone call it look like Loühn is in labor. So hubby and I rushed over to their house well tried to rush anyway…. All the robot’s were red and the people drove so slow. So it seemed anyway.
Got to their house and there Loühn was busy with washing, packing her suitcase and she was so calm. The kids was super exited about this change in events. Who am I kidding I was super excited about the change in events. Loühn and Ignatius went to the hospital and I had my cellphone in my hand looking at the screen every few minutes to see if there is any news. Ignatius phoned us and said they are doing a cesarean and Loühn is going in at 21:00.
People that was the longest wait ever, I watched my cellphone like a hawk. Every few seconds and if that red light is blinking I get super excited just to be super disappointed when I see it’s a email…. The waiting and then after 10 I got a photo of little Conrad from Ignatius. Conrad was born at 21:51, birth weight 3.875 kg and is 52 cm long. I was over the moon. The long wait is over……
So I thought anyway but to pass 12 hours is very hard. I could not fall asleep all I was thinking of is meeting little Conrad and to make sure my friend is all right. I was a bit worried about her but everything worked out great. This morning time crawled by it felt like 9:30 was just not getting any closer… At long last it was time to go to the hospital to go visit Loühn and little Conrad…. When I saw my friend glowing and little Conrad on her lap I had to control the tears of joy…. Both Mommy and baby was alright….
Little Conrad had his first mini shoot and he was only 12 hours old….
Today is the last post of my dear friend Loühn’s baby bump. When she got pregnant she offered to be my model and build my mommy to be portfolio. Can not believe that on Monday 27 January 2014 little Conrad will be born. We had so much fun with our shoots. The last one had to be the highlight of them all. About half an hour before Loühn came for her shoot the power went out… So we had to shoot with natural light. Not ideal for that time of the evening. The light is all wrong but we did it and with allot of laughs to.
I would just like to thank Loühn for being such a great friend and giving me the pleasure to capture her growing baby bump.

Thank you for following Loühn’s growing bump. As soon as little Conrad is born I’ll post a photo of him…
On the 2nd of January 2014 I had the honor to capture the Otto Family in my home studio.
Mommy Michelle was so excited about the shoot they tried to learn little 21 month old Mienke to say smile and then she smiled… But when it came to the push little Mienke did not smile at all we tried everything she just did not want to work along. While mommy was interacting with Mienke I saw she relaxed a bit and I told mom to keep going I took a range of photo’s of little Mienke while mommy and daddy distracted her. I had to crop and clone out mommies hand in all Mienke’s individual photo’s but at least I got some great shots.
Looking forward to our outdoor shoot later the month. Gonna put on my running shoes and camouflage clothing so that Little Mienke don’t spot me….
