Mondi and Nova-Mae
A Mommy and Me shoot captures that very special bond between a mother and her child. And this mother-daughter team is definitely the cutest one I’ve had the pleasure of capturing! Mondi contacted me online a few months ago as she was looking for a photographer to capture her little Nova-Mae’s second birthday party. Little did I know what a special shoot this would turn out to be!
Mondi is an incredibly talented woman and a powerhouse of energy and innovation. She owned a vintage fashion clothing store before branching out into starting Oh My Baby, a baby brand collaboration store in Menlyn Mall, Pretoria. Oh My Baby stocks some of the most beautiful toddler and baby brands in South Africa – you can find them on Facebook here and get in touch with them here.
A special Mommy and Me shoot
The birthday party was hosted at the gorgeous Graceland Fun Farm in Pretoria East. I grabbed a few minutes with Mondi and Nova-Mae before all the guests arrived to sneak in a quick Mommy and Me shoot. We took a walk down to the beautiful paddocks where a few horses grazed peacefully in the background. Nova-Mae posed beautifully in her mother’s arms while I snapped away. Their bond is unique and beautiful and this little girl is the apple of her mother’s eye!
And then the fun began: the picturesque fields formed the backdrop to the delighted laughter of children. Guests bearing gifts and hugs came flocking to the vintage carnival-themed party. The little ones had a ball, as they played, ran, climbed, jumped and played some more. With the Cow Train doing regular loops around the manicured lawns and a trampoline and jungle gym on hand for little bodies to burn off all that excess energy, the winter sunshine smiled down on Nova-Mae’s second birthday party.
