On the 13th of January I met two very special families at Emmarentia Dam for a photoshoot. Sam is the sister in law of a very good friend of mine, Cherry. She and her husband Stuart, along with their beautiful daughter Caitlin, live in Australia and had come out to South Africa to spend the festive season with their families. Sam wanted to have photographs with her family and with Stuarts family. It was the biggest family gathering I have ever photographed, with a wide variety of ages including four children under the age of 4.
I had a great afternoon with both families. The little ones kept me on my toes – riding their bikes, eating ice creams and running around with so much energy. We ended the afternoon at the dam feeding the ducks, even though they were not really interested in our food. I always love watching families together – they have a very special kind of friendship which must be treasured.
Thank you to the Pugh and Wellard family for a lovely afternoon. Enjoy your photos.
