I met up with Karin, Terry and baby Zack at Groot Constantia on a chilly day for some family photos. Zack is just the cutest little guy and he kept us laughing all the way through the shoot with his animated faces and his seeming refusal to smile! I am told he is the smiley-est chap normally but this day he decided otherwise! He did give us some sweet little grins though that I was lucky enough to catch.
Can we just take a moment for a aaahhhhhhh! I have said it before and I will continue to say it, a huge part of why I love my job is being able to share in people’s most special journeys. I have had the immense privilege to shoot Abby and Shane’s wedding, their maternity shoot and now a little at home session with baby Sophia. I spent some time with the little family at home one week day morning, capturing her happy, content moments as well as her not so easy moments 🙂 But isn’t that what raising a little princess is all about?
Casey and Ryan live in New York, Ryan’s family is in Cape Town and Casey is from the U.K. They recently got engaged and decided to take a trip to Cape Town to celebrate with friends and family on the African continent! Casey’s parents joined in on the trip and I met up with them at Blouberg Beach for a little engagement session. They are such a cool, fun loving couple and despite Ryan not being a fan of having his photo taken, we had a fun little session in the sun.
This family…what can I say?! I met Jo and Fabio a few years ago when they got married in an intimate ceremony in the Winelands. Now they have the most precious little boy. We met up at the beach at sunrise and got some of my favorite, biggest smile making shots ever!
I have known Bronwyn since she was 6 years old and now she has her own little girl! It was such a special shoot for me having seen her grow up, meet Tarren and now they are starting a family. Their other daughter, Ellie, tagged along for the shoot and was just a bundle of energy in the forest. She is such a cutie and Bronwyn and Tarren just adore her. Bronwyn has told me that she is now the perfect big sister!
I had such a great afternoon with Xavier and his family as they all met at Waterford Wine Estate in Stellenbosch the afternoon of his Matric Farewell. There was a lot of excitement in the air as all the Matriculants arrived, greeted each other and saw what the other was wearing! The girls all looked so beautiful and the guys all so handsome. We did some fun photos of Xavier and his girlfriend, Kiara, as well as some family photos. Xavier’s mother loves to display photos at home of the families’ special occasions so I hope these will become well cherished memories for them all.
I shot Talana and Thomas’ wedding a few years ago so loved seeing them again and meeting baby Daniel. He is just the cutest little guy! We spent an afternoon at their home creating these images. I really love this way of doing family shoots, life isn’t perfect and this allows real memories to be captured, feeding time and crying included 🙂
I first met Julia and Salomon about a year ago on a trip to Thailand to shoot Julia’s cousin’s wedding. After finding out they were expecting a little, precious bundle, Julia contacted me to do a maternity shoot. I was so excited! They are such a great couple and I loved getting to spend some time with them again. Baby Conan is now a healthy growing boy and they are loving every second with their son.
This shoot is very special to me as I have followed Theresa and Hentie’s journey with them from their wedding day, to a maternity shoot and now I had the honor of meeting baby Stian.
I love that I get to share so many life changing moments with people and Theresa and Hentie are one of those couples. I photographed their wedding a few years ago and now I get to share in the memories of their first baby. (Stian was born earlier this week and I can’t wait to meet him). They wanted a farm setting for their shoot as they have decorated their boy’s bedroom with farm elements. Theresa asked me for a picture of the windmill as they had put one on Stian’s bedroom wall. We had alot of fun driving around looking for the perfect spots and I am so happy… Keep Reading
