ANNAPATAT CLOTHING

I first met Anneka at Kamers in JHB. Her beautiful clothing for little ones grabbed my attention while I was walking around capturing the market. Since then Anneka has continued to inspire me with her clothing range called Annapatat. Annapatat clothing has always exuded style and beauty while still making the items comfortable for children to wear. These are her latest offerings for winter. I wish she made adult sizes 😉 I would love to buy them all. Order yours here today....

BLU RADISSON SEA POINT

Hotel rooms can be dark and boring and have grandmother inspired curtains and upholstery. The rooms at the Blu Radisson in Sea Point, however, have been redone and exude elegance, sophistication, and comfort. I love the neutral colour palette with hints of blue mimicking the ocean and the wood and metal combination with touches of South African beauty in the black and white prints....

KOMMETJIE FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT

Kommetjie is a beautiful little part of Cape Town/ Western Cape where the dress code is shorts and slops. Where the sunlight seems softer and the ocean bluer. It is such an exquisite area – it is here that I met Amanda and her wonderful family who were spending quality time together over the festive season. The family had traveled from all across the world to be together. We spent a lovely afternoon on the beach capturing special moments together. ...

MCCREEDY FAMILY | FOREST

The McCreedy family are the closest, kindest family you will ever meet. Even though I now live in Cape Town we managed to make a plan to do a shoot on one of my trips to JHB. We had so much fun in the Bryanston Forest. All the siblings were amazing and even with the impending summer thunderstorm they brought sunshine to every photo. FAMILY, WHERE LIFE BEGINS & LOVE NEVER ENDS...
