Lee and I first me in the gym a few years ago. We haven’t seen each other in a while due to lock down restrictions. I was happily surprised to suddenly hear from her when she contacted me to do a family shoot for her and her family in law. She and her husband, Shaun, wanted to give Shaun’s parents the shoot as a gift.
They chose a beach location for the shoot and we met on a gorgeous evening at sunset. We met at the popular On The Rocks restaurant, this is a favourite shoot location of mine. There are some lovely beaches in the surrounds with a beautiful view of Table Mountain. They each chose a beachy toned outfit which really added to these pretty images. I normally advise clients what clothing works best on camera and they really did nail it!
I had such a lovely time chatting with them all as we walked from spot to spot. We laughed in between shots and they had some wonderfully silly moments together. They are just the most lovely family! I sent Lee a message after the shoot to tell her how lucky she was to have such a special group of people she can call family.
They don’t all live in the same city and there are further moves planned in the not too distant future. Being away from family can be hard at times so I hope these images will be ones they will cherish for a long time to come.
