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

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 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

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

Matthew Turns ONE!

Matthew is the sweetest little boy, with a mop of blonde hair and the most gorgeous blue eyes! I met him and his mom and dad – Nicolette and Wayne – to snap pics at his first birthday party this past weekend. The day was special and intimate and Matthew was showered with love and gifts from his closest friends and family… although it seems his favourite present of all was dads braai tongs! Happy birthday Matthew, and congrats to mom and dad.  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
