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.
One of the big reasons I love being a portrait photographer is that I often get to see families on more than one occasion. Earlier this year I shot Arlene’s wedding and now I get to share her niece’s matric farewell. It was so wonderful going back to the family home and seeing them all again.
