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!

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

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

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!

The Eadie-Botha Family

My first shoot of the year was a picture perfect family affair. Megan asked me to take some photos of her and her extended family before a few of them emigrated overseas. They all looked great, the champagne was flowing, the three boys were just perfection and I even managed to crack a grin or two from a few reluctant dads. 🙂 Good luck with your new venture guys, and thanks for the fun afternoon!

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

Clairs Maternity Shoot

Clair is a really good friend of mine. She also happens to be a newborn photographer, so I was understandably really nervous to take her maternity pics! Luckily for me she was super chilled and the best part was the natural poses that just came out of nowhere (I think she’s wasted behind the viewfinder 😉 Hubby Raurie and almost-three-year-old Abigail joined in and both were on their best behaviour. In fact, I think Abigail stole the show! Thanks so much to Clair and family for trekking around the gardens with me this afternoon – I think these weekday ‘sunset sessions’ are fast becoming my favourite.  Continue reading

Jack Kennedy – Newborn Shoot

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
