It’s only once your kids are grown and you look back to photos of those early years that you wish you’d held them just a little bit longer, while they were still small. As a mom to two teens myself I know that to be true.

So it was an honor to help Anél with a studio session to capture that special mother-child bond with her daughter. Little Anja was a an absolute ball of fun energy but after a bit of coaxing with my treat jar and just going with her playful spirit, we managed to capture some beautiful photos at my Middelburg studio.
