Gina and Renzo recently celebrated their combined birthday party (3 and 1) on Mothers Day. Despite the icy air and constant rain the kids had an absolute blast playing on the jungle gyms, riding the pony and catching rain drops on their tongues. The adults (because as we know, wisdom comes with age ;)) celebrated indoors with cozy heaters and delicious food. The 3 Moreira siblings are just the sweetest – as are their friends! Thanks for inviting me to capture this special day Sally-Ann and Marco! Continue reading
Shana, her hubby and most beautiful daughter Ari are out from Spain visiting family, and wanted a big group photoshoot to celebrate everyone being together again. We met up last month and it was so lovely to be in a new venue and to watch little Ari run around in the long grass. Apparently there are no creepy crawlies in Spain (lucky!) so she wasn’t at all bothered by all the new bugs and insects in her path. So nice to meet you all, enjoy your pics! Continue reading
I have totally lucked out with the families I got to meet and shoot in 2016 – and the Rehrl family was no exception. We met up at the Irene Dairy Farm and even though it was drizzling and grey and FULL of mud the shoot was such fun. Wendy and Louis are just awesome and their kids Nate and Layla are possibly the most photo-loving and happy children I have ever met. Thank you for such a fun afternoon and for making this so easy for me – it was awesome to meet you all 🙂 Continue reading
When Bernardine approached me to take some family photos, I was really honoured. She’s a wonderful mom of 3 and just one of the kindest, sweetest people I know. Her kids go to my sons school and I’ve always marvelled at how amazing she always looks – even with an entire children troupe in tow! I met up with them this morning, and despite the windy weather and a not so photo-keen Koltt we had such a lovely morning snapping some pics in thier Estate. I loved Kades cheeky grin and Dantes soft beautiful nature – she really stole the show! Thanks Bernadine, Kevin and kids!
Little Cameron is in Carters class at school and I was so excited when her mom Gill booked me for a shoot. She is the sweetest, quirkiest and most adventurous little girl and we had the best fun racing around as she explored the open veld and stopped to take in all the sights and smells. Thanks for a fun afternoon Gillian and Byron! Continue reading
I was contacted by Alison to take photos of their newborn Jack at their home in Bryanston. Alison and I went to high school together but haven’t seen each other in years (apart from one sweaty moment when we gave each other an exhausted wave somewhere during the 21km run at a Half Iron Man race a few years ago). It was so nice to see her again and meet her beautiful little boy! Turns out Alison is married to Grant who is the son of my mom’s very good friend, Gail. Very small world!
10 day old Jack was such a sweet and content baby, who slept through most of the action! Continue reading
Madison and Sebastian share the same birthday month, and even though they are 4 years apart, their birthday parties were celebrated on the same day at the same venue. One-year-old Madi got a gorgeous princess theme and big brother Sebastian had his section decked out in dinosaur decor – perfect for a roaring 5 year old! Both the kids and all the friends and family had the best day celebrating these two special kids. Happy Birthday Madi and Sebastian, and well done to mom Samantha and Dad Kurt on the awesome decor and delicious treats! Continue reading
