TV and radio personality Pearl Modiadie

Pearl said that she felt vulnerable (but powerful!) when taking this photo. Thanks for sharing, Pearl – we think you look incredible.

Model & actress Zenande Mfenyana

How does she look this good under water? We need answers!

Choreographer and influencer Nkateko ‘Takkies’ Dinwiddy┬á

Nkateko gets 10 out of 10 for pulling off this whimsical, rainbow-coloured maternity shoot!

Businesswoman and TV personality Jo-Ann Strauss

Is it a maternity shoot or is it a fantastic way to celebrate your background on Heritage Day? Who cares? It’s amazing!

Model and entrepreneur Tracy McGregor

Okay, so this isn’t really a maternity shoot, it’s more of a pregnancy reveal – but we absolutely love it nonetheless.

Businesswoman and influencer Vourn├ę┬á Kgosinkwe

Elegance. Simplicity. Perfection. How did she manage to make a plain white sheet look so glamorous?

Actress Minnie Dlamini Jones

Well done to Minnie for giving her cultural heritage a big nod in her pregnancy reveal – and she shot it in her backyard where she says her child will be raised. This maternity shoot gets the BabyYumYum stamp of approval.

Entrepreneur Yolanda Vilikazi

Is there such a thing as too much pink? We think not! Yolanda wore the chiffon and ruffles beautifully when she posed for a maternity shoot ahead of the birth of her daughter. She gets extra style points for the flower crown.

Blogger and TV personality Roxy Burger

Roxy kept her maternity shoot simple but she managed to pull it off while working remotely – during lockdown – with a photographer. We’re officially impressed.

Actress and singer Simphiwe Simz Ngema

The hair, the flowers, the colour, the pure joy that’s evident in her smile… we’re not sure what we love most in this series of pics.

Influencer Thobeka Majozi

Thobeka chose this fierce family photo to announce the birth of her son with rapper Cassper Nyovest.

Medical doctor and former Miss World Rolene Strauss

How fabulous that Rolene chose to make her maternity shoot a family affair by including her son in this photo, which was shot when she was 38 weeks pregnant?
