Family – Baby Gia | Bryanston

Happiness is a little girl playing in the forest with her parents. Little Gia is the most delightful little girl who makes friends with everyone and a smile that touches your soul. Watching her playing in the forest – picking up pine cones and having fun made for a delightful afternoon. Family is the most important thing and it was so special capturing memories of this incredible family....

Newborn – Baby Jacob | Sandton

A few weeks ago I met this perfect little baby boy at his house in Sandton. He was the perfect little model and never complained during the whole shoot. Those beautiful blue eyes are piercing and this little guy is going to be a real heart breaker. It was so lovely to capture this special family all together in their beautiful home....

Newborn – Baby Oliver | Pretoria

I first met Jade at Jennifer and Martins Wedding and she was pregnant with ducky – that’s what they called the little one til they knew he was boy. Jade was the most helpful and amazing bridesmaid to Jen. I was super excited when Jade asked me capture her beautiful baby boy Oliver at only 5 days old.Oliver is the sweetest little guy – he didn’t take kindly to us disturbing his sleep and routine but mom and dad were amazing – keeping calm and thus keeping him calm. I loved meeting this precious little man and I am sure he is going to grow into a heart breaker 🙂...

Family – Horell | Delta Park

Jacqui contacted me to do some family photos for her and her kids before they all move across the globe. I met the whole brood including their amazing dogs (I love dogs) at the bottom of Delta Park. Just an hour before it had rained (in the middle of Winter – it was very strange) and we werent sure if we would be able to do the shoot in the park but in the end the sun came out and the rain had washed everything to make it look all shiny and new and the light was amazing. Thank you to you all for a wonderful afternoon and good luck...

Event – High Tea| Fairlawn Boutique Hotel & Spa

Angela contacted me a while ago to photograph a high tea she was organising. It was held at the Fairlawn Boutique and Spa Hotel in Sandton. I had never been there before but when I arrived the beauty of the large villa house and the rolling green lawns with a covered terrace made for the perfect location for a bit if spoiling with a high tea. Angela and her three sisters organised a surprise high tea for their mom “just because”. It was not her birthday or anything they just wanted to spoil her. They invited her closest friends and when mom arrived she was floored with all the love...

Event – Baby Joe turns one | Sandton

Last week the most gorgeous little boy who I last photographed when he was only a few weeks old (click here to see the photos) turned one. How time flies. He is now crawling around and taking a few steps and smiling at everyone he see’s – a true cutie. The theme for his birthday party was snips and snails and puppy dog tails, with an orange and green colour scheme to it. I loved the frog sweets and garden of worms in biscuit dirt. It looked beautiful and vibrant. His present was the most gorgeous little push bike – the perfect gift considering his dad is a huge cyclist....

Family – Heydenrych | Delta Park

I love photographing special family friends. This family have been friends with my family for years and years! I remember as a little kid going to visit this family on a farm and running through beautiful green fields. Now many years later I was privileged enough to photograph these amazing people. We all know moms are special but Ellen and James just love their mom and we laughed the whole session. It was so uplifting to witness a family who are best friends. Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your beauty inside and out....

Family – Baby Leo | Cake Smash

I first met Leo and his mom Casey at the Bub Hub Massage Class. Casey then asked me to photograph his naming ceremony at their house. Leo is now one – how time flies, so we organised a Cake Smash for this little man and did he love it. We did the shoot in Leo’s nursery against the bright orange wall and it was the perfect backdrop for a fun shoot.  I loved the pure joy he got from playing with the textures of the cake and then realising that it tasted really good and so ate cake – lots of cake. At the end of the session when there...

Family – Shulze | Craigavon

I first met Shelley when I had the wonderful opportunity of photographing 5 day old baby Reese. (click here to see her photos) Reese is now 3 months old and she is so cute, growing by the day and getting cuter and cuter. This time around I managed to meet the men of the family. Shelley had organised a double shoot as her best friend and her baby (Sam and Reese are 3 days apart) were in JHB so it was an action filled afternoon – to see Baby Sams photos click here.  Luke is the cutest little boy who loved my camera (especially when he could see his photo...

Family – Baby Sam | Johannesburg

Les and Dave were visiting friends in Johannesburg. They live on a farm in the Eastern Cape under the beautiful mountains and blue sky. On their visit to Jozi they organised for me to take some photos of their special little family including 3 month old Sam. This little boy is gorgeous – with blue eyes that sparkle and the cutest little cheeks. He was so well behaved and did so well with everybody fussing him for a few photos. Thank you all for a wonderful afternoon...

Event – Paloma Birthday Party | Chartwell

On Saturday I attended an 11 year olds birthday party at Post House Party Venue in Chartwell. Missi Magpie did the beautiful candy table for Paloma and all her friends. The table was laden with all sugary delights including wine gum strips, sherbet sweets, popcorn, juice and large chewy meringues. On top of the large garden area, pony rides and candy table there were two large jumping castles and a trampoline. The kids even had a dance competition – showing off all their moves to songs like cha cha slide and gangnam style. It was a wonderful morning spent with a beautiful family having lots of fun....

Family – The Davies | Saxonwold

This beautiful family brightened up my Saturday. The smiles these two gorgeous girls had and the love that they all shared together was so special to witness. The girls love each other (they also love saying “cheese” :)) I was used as a playground at points during the shoot but I loved it made me feel like part of the family 🙂 My favourite part was when we had a dance session in the drive way (way more fun than sitting and posing ;-))...

Family – Madison turns one | Delta Park

On Saturday afternoon I joined a wonderful family to capture the celebration of dear Madisons first birthday party. Under the trees in Delta Park Madisons grandmother and mom decorated and hosted a beautiful party filled with sweets, juice, scrumptious food and the most gorgeous pink rose cake. This little girl was a true princess dressed in a beautiful crocheted crown and pink tutu. It was a wonderful afternoon watching Madison interpret what she was meant to do with this cake of hers to sliding down the slides at the jungle gyms and swinging to her hearts content in the swings under the trees. Happy Birthday Beautiful Girl....

Newborn – Baby Reese | Craigavon

I met this beautiful little girl and her mom 2 weeks ago at their home in Craigavon. Baby Reese was 9 days old and too beautiful. I loved her dark hair and gorgeous eyes. She was so happy with her mom and it was a wonderful morning documenting some special memories....

Family – Saskia | Parktown

On a beautiful sunny morning I met Paul, Sarah and Saskia at their beautiful house in Parktown. Little Saskia is 6 weeks young and a baby that is so relaxed and happy with her surroundings. I found out it was Sarahs birthday on the day of the shoot – I always think photoshoots are a gift to yourself – memories and moments to cherish forever. Saskia fell asleep at the end of the shoot and I just love the adoring look Sarah has for her daughter as she sleeps in her arms Thank you to Paul, Sarah, Saskia and Ninja (the dog) for a wonderful morning – I hope you...
