With 6 (!) extremely beautiful and absolutely wonderful people, I decided to split my little introduction of them into probably three parts :) I will begin with Mommy Anja and little 8-month-old Sontje ♥.
The six of them were already picnicking when I arrived at the shoot. Cause it was a nice and warm summer afternoon lots of other people obviously had the same idea, and I was looking around for them. All of a sudden this beautiful young blonde girl came running towards me with the nicest and definitely most infectious smile on her face and gave me a big hug. My first thought was: cool, these guys have an awesome Nanny :) Well, to my great astonishment, it wasn't the Nanny, it was Mommy Anja herself! To me it's still a miracle: How can a mother of four young kids who are still in a challenging age be so fresh, so young, so very pretty, so not tired, so motivated, and so very relaxed?? She's my new role model!!!!! Anja is such an incredible person, so very light- and kind-hearted, so full of love for everybody who crosses her path and so carefree. Enough said .... here are some true superstars!!
These pictures really make me cry cause they bring back so many memories. How lucky is Sontje to be the fourth child. I remember when I was at the hospital with Juliana, the nurses completely discouraged me from breastfeeding her: "These kids can't be nursed because of their low facial muscle tone." When I think about it, I still get mad. Therefore it really warms my heart when I learn that other mothers don't get discouraged and really give it a try. I know you will have to work harder at the beginning, but it's so very possible!!
Only one word: G O R G E O U S !
Well hello, here's beautiful Antonia. Proud big sister of Sontje. More of her in my next post :)
I'll be back soon! :)
