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...

Family – Tinky Turns One

One of the many reasons I love my job so much is that some clients become friends and welcome you into their family with open arms. This little princess I have known since she was still in Larissa’s tummy 🙂 I met her when she was a few days old and again before she had her cut off and now I was able to capture her first birthday party at home. What a blessing. Tinky you are the most beautiful little girl who is a ray of sunshine 🙂...

Couple – Warren & Kelly | Braamfontein

Kelly was given a voucher for a photo shoot from her friends for her birthday 🙂 (What a lovely idea). Unfortunately before she could use it I moved to Cape Town. As fate would have it though I was planning a trip to JHB for other photoshoots and we could schedule a shoot with her and her wonderful boyfriend Warren on Sunday afternoon. I love Johannesburg CBD – the energy, architecture, graffiti and the eclectic mix of old and new make for wonderful photo opportunities. Warren and Kelly are the most wonderful couple – their adoration for each other is just incredible to witness. It was such a joy to be...

Family – De Vaal | Llandudno

Photographing other photographers is always scary – luckily Lerika is the most wonderful person and has the most gorgeous family. Those little boys melt your heart and are super goodlooking (photographers dream). Even though they came to Cape Town in Summer the weather on the day we did the shoot was horrid – VERY cold and VERY windy. Thanks my friend for being so wonderful – never stop. You and your family are incredible....

Wedding – Riaan & Jen | Parys

This was my last wedding of 2015 – a beautiful hot summers day outside of the quaint city of Parys was where Riaan and Jennilee chose to say their vows. A beautiful location on the Vaal River was the most idyllic setting. It was a beautiful Wedding filled with Proteas, lace and hints of purple. Thank you to everyone for making us feel like we were apart of the family – a perfect way to end my 2015 season....

Friends are the family you chose, this could not be more true. When you become friends with people more often than not you get incorporated into their family and what a blessing this is.
