Whenever I drive to Nelspruit I see this beautiful old building in the grass and I have always wanted to do a photoshoot there. While I was in Mpumalanga this weekend, among visiting the Christmas Market I asked Sam to model for me at this building, This beautiful girl Samantha lives next door to my mom in Nelspruit. It was drizzling with soft yet drenching rain when we arrived but luckily it stopped making for a fun shoot filled with lots of giggles. Thanks Sam for being the most gorgeous model inside and out. (I LOVE her hair) It had just rained before we arrived and these spider webs were a beautiful...

This last week Penryn School hosted their annual Christmas Market. This year the ladies made a beautiful simple winter wonderland with gorgeous wooden snowflakes hanging from the ceiling and wooden palletes for display counters. Thank you to the Penryn moms for all the effort they put into making the market such a success. Part of the decor was to fill wooden frames with toilet rolls – very clever....

Cress Heads, Eggshell Planter, Cress Seeds, Kids Activities

I had never heard of these before and apparently you make these as kids – I never did but I LOVE them as an adult. They are called Cress Heads. I cant wait til they grow longer and then the theory is that you draw faces on the egg shell so that the Cress looks like hair.  ...

16 August 2012

We have an ornamental Pomegranate tree in our garden. In short these are just baby Pomegranates. I have tried to eat them but they are so sour and not at all like the real thing – which I love. I believe that they are natures sweets. Our ones are all dried and dehydrated now at the end of winter however I found this one which had cracked open and still had the vibrant red seeds inside.  ...

Personal – First Wedding Anniversary | Mpumalanga

On a one year wedding anniversary it is tradition to give a gift of Paper. There are so many things you can do for this. On the 1st of May – my husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary. In celebration of this I decided to give Ross a paper themed breakfast. I got a lot of inspiration from this blog – The Pretty Blog posts. I added a newspaper – “The Yearly News” and made lots of paper hearts. We sat on the patio at Nwanakalile Lodge and had a good laugh and yummy breakfast. We have been spoilt rotten with the most beautiful books and paper gifts. Thank...

Wedding, Anniversary, Gauteng Photographer, Nelspruit Photographer, Fun, Spontaneous

Today marks our 1 year wedding anniversary!!! On this day – I married my best friend. I cannot believe it has already been a year – the year has flown past!!! We have been on so many adventures together from flying to Europe to starting my own business – and I would have never been able to do what I do if it wasnt for my incredible husband. He is my rock, my friend, my companion, my confidant and my biggest fan. We went down to the rock where we had our ceremony (Click here to see the photos) and had drinks with some close friends and family. I am...

Event – Graduation at Vergelegen | Somerset West

Vergelegen Photographer, Wedding Photographer, Family Photo, Nelspruit Family Photographer, JHB Awesome Family Photo, Food Photographer South Africa

I don’t always think we realise what an occasion graduating from Varsity is. You have worked so hard for 3 – 4 years – written many exams and you have passed it all to get a piece of paper with your official degree. Its kind of a big deal. This graduation celebration was slightly different, instead of having all this fuss made of him – he opted for Cake and Coffee with some of his mates at Vergelegen Wine Estate. This wine estate has recently been renovated- beautiful, light and modern – definitely a must see when visiting the Cape. I loved how relaxed this all was with the boys...

Personal – Weekend Away | Mpumalanga

Last weekend hubby and I took a road trip to Nelspruit to see our special family. We had an amazing weekend – a new friend took us for a little flight in his bantam – it is so beautiful to see things from the air. We had drinks on the rock and walked around the bush. Gorgeous weekend.  ...

Personal – Canopy Tour | Magaliesberg

Last weekend 4 of us went to the Magaliesburg to do their canopy tour. We were the first tour at 8:30 (so glad we went early as it got incredibly hot later on) What an amazing excursion. The first zip line is quite scary as you don’t know what to expect but by the end of it – the feeling of the air through your hair and the weightlessness as you hover over the gorge is exhilarating. What a great outing....

Wedding – Gustav and Tharien at Olive Mystery

I was very privilaged to second shoot for a very respected photographer Hannes Uys (www.hannesuysblog.com) at Olive Mystery in Bapsfontein. I learnt so much and I thank Hannes for teaching me all that he did. The colour scheme was purple and the beautiful bride wore 2 gorgeous dresses. It was a typical hot sunny South African Day – a beautiful day to get married. We did the couple shoot at a run down farm next door – they were amazing run down buildings that provided beautiful contrasting textures. Congratulations to Tharien and Gustav....

This was a very special family shoot as this family were out to celebrate their fathers’/ grandfathers’ 90th birthday.

It was amazing to see a family who have fun together. I really really enjoyed this one 🙂 This shoot was taken at Steenburg Estate....
