Olivia Jackson – Newborn Shoot

I simply adore a casual at-home lifestyle session, and this shoot was just that. Olivia was just 10 days old when I met her, and the newest addition to the Jackson clan. She is utterly gorgeous – just like mom – with olive skin and a mop of thick black hair. Older brother Jayden is probably the sweetest 1.5 year old I have ever met, with the most charming smile I’ve ever seen. Meeting Candace and Ricky (mom and dad) was such a treat – they are both so nice and relaxed and made me feel right at home. I loved the classic decor of their home and the windows that all had THE BEST LIGHT (any photographers dream!).  Continue reading

Elana Shaw and Family

It was quite weird meeting Elana ‘officially’ as I feel like we are totes besties – all thanks to social media! We have been following each other on Twitter and Instagram for years now and I marvel at her post baby body, run pace and adorable son Sam. Elana booked me for an Express shoot with her mom Elma and sister Estèrre as well as their gorgeous kiddies Sam, Stella and MJ. Delta Park never fails to disappoint and I’m really glad we could shoot while the last few Cosmos were in bloom. I think our loud screams for the kids to ‘say cheese’ scared half the park goers away 🙂 Thank you for a fun, wet and coffee-fuelled morning.  Continue reading

Moms and Babes – A Christmas Celebration

You can’t actually get more cute than this – 8 gorgeous moms and their little Christmas elves. This was probably the most fun shoot I have ever done – look how sweet these little Festive delights are. Thanks for the fun and bubbly, ladies.  Continue reading

A Twins First Birthday Party!

The only way to describe the first birthday of twins Kenzy and Skyla is ‘A ray…make that TWO rays of sunshine’. The venue was just gorgeous, the decor absolutely amazing and the vibe was such fun. Clair is the most bubbly, vivacious and outgoing person I have ever met and she made me feel like a guest the entire day. I even left with a huge box of sweets which I may or may not have eaten before I even got home. Skyla and Kenzy are the most precious little girls and adored by everyone. I loved their matching outfits, sparkly gold shoes and calm beautiful souls. Congratulations Claire and Steve, this was the most perfect celebration! Continue reading

The Sadler Family

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

Poonam and Preetesh – A Maternity Shoot

I met up with the Sewraj’s recently to snap pics of Poonam’s gorgeous baby belly. Poonam and Preetesh have no idea if they’re having a girl or a boy, so they still have a few months to wait to find out… a lot more patience than I have 🙂 Continue reading

The Jeffery Family

I met up with Hayley and Warren and their cute kids Luke and Abbey at Delta Park a few weeks ago for a family shoot. The weather was looking very volatile and I was worried we might have to cancel, but I’m really glad we didn’t. The moody grey skies made for the perfect backdrop – and complemented their outfit choice perfectly 🙂 Luke and I chased imaginary snakes and dragons in the long grass and Abbey explored twigs and dandelions. It was such a perfect afternoon. This family is filled with so much love.  Continue reading

Woolnough Newborn Shoot

I met Jacki and her hubby David at a mutual friends birthday party last month. Jacki was there with her 16-month-old and 7-day-old, sons. Now that’s a super mom if you ask me! Jacki’s mom was in Joburg visiting the family and asked me to do a newborn and family shoot the following weekend. Jacki’s step daughter Megan joined in on the fun, and we had such a lovely morning capturing the family and laughing with all the kids.

Baby Connor is too beautiful and was as good as gold the entire time.

Thanks Woonough Family for allowing me in to your home and letting me shoot these precious moments. Continue reading
