I met Paul and Lizel in 2011 when they booked me to take photos of them and their closest friends and family for their 5 year wedding anniversary. I was so chuffed when Lizél contacted me at the beginning of this year to say that they had a new addition on the way, and they wanted me to come and take some pics of her once she was born.
I remember when I first met the Berties, I was struck by how easy going and friendly they were, and also by how much they really love each other. Nothing has changed, walking into their home (which is simply gorgeous) has a calming effect on the soul. They are beautiful people inside and out. Can you believe that Lizél just gave birth? She looks amazing. Their 2 eldest children, Xavier and Francois, have grown up so much and are such wonderful little people. Little Xavier took me on a tour of the house (especially his bedroom and his car collection) before I’d even had a chance to chat to his mom. So precious!
Anyway, so the newest addition to the family is little Quinne, she is beautiful and was such a wonderful little model. She slept peacefully through most of the shoot, allowing for some really precious images. Thank you Paul and Lizél for inviting me into your home to spend a morning with your family. I hope you like them and I hope we can do this again in the future.
Xavier had to have a turn on dad’s arm, just like his sister :)
