Harper Farrell Newborn

I am absolutely besotted with 1 week old Harper McKenzie and just had the best time shooting her in all her newborn perfection. I ‘met’ her when I did mom Shelley’s maternity shoot last month, and up until the day she was born Shelley and Johnny had no idea what they were having. She’s perfect in every way, was an absolute angel for the entire session and is loved by everyone – especially proud big sister Taeyla who couldn’t stop giving her kisses. Such a wonderful, fun shoot! Thank you guys!

Gina and Renzo’s Joint Birthday Party

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

Bailey Grey Pillay

Meet gorgeous 2.5 week old baby Bailey Grey Pillay. She is sister to the sweetest prettiest Dakota-Blue and daughter to Nicky and Darryl. Guys, there’s just something abut a little baby girl that gets me all melty, and I was so excited to try my handmade flower crowns on all the ladies! Thanks for inviting me into your home guys, and for letting me cuddle baby Bailey longer than I should have 😉  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

Photographer Headshots

A few weeks ago I found myself in a bit of a predicament – I take everyone else’s photos but no one ever took of me, and I was in desperate need of some head shots for my website and blog. I’ve done a few family shoots with the Lovely Robyn from Robyn Davie photography and after chatting we decided to do a trade exchange whereby we took each others head shots one afternoon. We were joined by another Robyn from Robyn Rose photography and spent a stunning afternoon at her house sipping Prosecco, munching on snacks and taking each others photos (as well as some pics of her gorgeous twins who were helping us assist ;)). It’s so refreshing to be able to work with other photogs instead of being threatened by them, and I’m really grateful to have these two lovely ladies to bounce ideas and feedback off. Below are a few of the head shots I took on the day – please get in touch if you need professional or personal head shots done for your business!  Continue reading

The Cooper Family

I visited Belinda, Alec, Nathan and Cassidy at their home in Fourways to snap some pics of their family. Cassidy was a little bit hesitant at first but warmed up once her and dad got jumping on the trampoline 🙂 and little Nathan was all fat cheeks and sweet smiles. Thanks for letting me into your home and the delish cup of coffee guys!

The Hawarden Family Shoot

I met up with Liza, Hugh, Samuel and Ruby at their oh-so-amazing home in Saxonwold to take some family photos. Everyone looked amazing and we had such fun shooting in their sprawling garden and beautiful home and surrounds. Ruby and Samuel are too cute for words and I loved every second of this golden-light filled session. Enjoy your photos, guys! Continue reading

The Joannides Family – Maternity Shoot

I met up with an old friend Nestor, his gorgeous expecting wife Tamlin and their beautiful 2.5 year old Jason this morning, to take some family maternity photos before they welcome their little girl into the world in March. I loved, loved this shoot. Delta Park never fails to disappoint and the light was just so soft and romantic against Tams gorgeous belly. It was also wonderful to catch up with Nestor and Tam and discuss plans for the newborn shoot next month. Jason had the best fun looking for dragons and showing me all the animals in his book. He even helped take some pics 😉 I love all the photos from this session, and am so excited to share this beautiful family with you! Enjoy your sneak peek!
