Jayde's pregnancy shoot

Arniston, the perfect backdrop for a pregnancy shoot

I am so behind on blogging my shoots and suddenly remembered that not only have I not yet blogged Jayde's pregnancy shoot, but neither have I blogged about her wedding, and guess what, her son has already been born....that's how far behind I am!

However as the saying goes, all good things come to those who wait, I now present to you Jayde and Jodey's pregnancy shoot! A few months back I drove to Arniston, which was to form the backdrop of the shoot, and oh what a backdrop, since the dunes are absolutely stunning and the sunset which we witnessed was equally breathtaking! Jayde looked beautiful in her flowing dress and Jodey could not have been more proud that evening!

Enjoy the photos!

Family photoshoot on Blaauwberg Beach!

I was recently contacted by Iris to photograph her beautiful family on Blaauwberg Beach in the Cape as they were visiting from Germany, and had brought their 5 month old daughter, Charlotte, with them!

Charlotte was so very sweet during her first international photoshoot, she giggled right on cue when her daddy danced behind me, she smiled with joy when it was her mom's turn to dance to get her to smile! What a gorgeous little girl!

Photoshoot with the Betty's Bay penguins

Introducing Kathrin and her family who spent some time holidaying in and around the Cape, ending up in Betty's Bay as their son, Max, loves penguins, and what better place to see them in their natural surroundings but to stop off at the local penguin colony in Betty's Bay!

My brief was that they wanted photos to record their trip out to Betty's and the penguins and that they didn't want posed photos but rather photos taken of them having fun and just being themselves!

Enjoy a peak into one of their days having fun!

Family Shoot in Pringle Bay South Africa

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing the Roets Family in Pringle Bay, South Africa. What made this shoot extra special was that the great grandparents were also down in the Cape for their summer holiday, and 4 generations of Roets family members, carry the name Elisabeth. You will see the photo of the Elisabeth clan!

A lot of fun was had and especially the little girls who naturally were the stars of the show!

Go ahead and enjoy the photos!

These 2 people really love and respect each other and very important, they have an amazing amount of fun together!! This is clearly evident in their photos as so many times, their photos are simply of them laughing together!

Family shoot at Silver Sands Beach Betty's Bay in South Africa

Family shoot at Silver Sands Beach Betty's Bay in South Africa

As most of you who know me well, know that I love animals, especially dogs, and this love led me to sponsor a free shoot for Kleinmond Animal Welfare Society (KAWS) in January while I was spending a few weeks in our home in Bettys Bay!

The idea was that KAWS would sell tickets with the first and second prize being either a family or a couple shoot, with all proceeds of the ticket sales going to KAWS. 

One of the winners was young Ingrid Dave who won the family shoot and the amazing thing is that her dad is the local vet seeing to the animals up at KAWS!! 

We decided to do the family shoot on Silver Sands Beach in Bettys Bay and of course, no family shoot is complete unless you bring the family fur babies with and so I got to meet Ella, the beagle and Joey, the young golden retriever! I was thrilled to meet the whole family and the shoot including Ella was especially poignant since Ella was diagnosed with lung cancer about a year ago!

Silver Sands Beach is a beautiful beach,with a majestic backdrop being Hangklip in the background and of course, it goes without saying that the sand dunes are awesome, so awesome that the family had a wonderful time running down the dunes for their photos!

I had a wonderful time with the Dave Family, both 2 legged and 4 legged members and hope that you enjoy looking at the photos as much as I enjoyed photographing the Dave Family!

Autumn mini shoot in Germany

Mini autumn family shoot in Germany!

On Friday I had the pleasure of Nadine and her 3 children in front of my camera for a quick autumn mini shoot!! I must say that as much as I love summer, there is something to be said for beautiful soft autumn light!! The children loved playing with the leaves and this was pretty much a bit of an ice breaker as who doesn't love to gather autumn leaves and to throw them into the air with wild abandon!!

We are all, after all, just kids at heart!!

Enjoy!!

Family shoot in front of Table Mountain

A few months back, I had the pleasure of the Bell Family in front of my camera!!

I met Sean and Tamsin, with their 2 beautiful sons, Calum, who is 13, and young Logan, who is 3 and a half, at Blaauwberg Beach, as a beach shoot, with Table Mountain as the background, is always something special!! Certainly for me since I don't get to see Table Mountain every day anymore since I live in Germany, but that will soon change, since we now have a home in the Cape as well!!!! Woop woop!!! :)

Photographing 2 young boys is extremely easy especially when you see just how photogenic they are!!  Calum is a total natural in front of the camera and is a definite heart breaker, and young Logan, has all the makings of a child model!!! 

Sean and Tamsin, thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your beautiful family!

I hope you enjoy your photos as much as I enjoyed photographing you!!

A Photoshoot with a senior dog called Quintus!

A Photoshoot with a senior dog called Quintus!

Family shoot with a difference!

I love doing shoots where fur babies are included, but sometimes, there's a shoot which touches me more than others, simply because I understand that the photos which I am going to produce, are going to be treasured because in a little while, one of the models may not be around. This was one of those shoots!

Quintus is a beautiful senior citizen, 14 years old, who unfortunately is suffering with terminal cancer! A few months back, Quintus was diagnosed with a cancerous growth in his paw! This was subsequently removed, and all was well for a time. Then during August this year, at a routine examination, a rather large lump was found in his neck, almost the size of a half a tennis ball! The vet has advised "his mother" that the growth is in the lymph nodes and sadly, the cancer seems to be a very aggressive cancer and is fast growing.

Family shoot in Germany

A couple of weeks back I was asked to do a family shoot for Hamid and his beautiful family! They were going through some of their old photos, and had recently bought a new photo frame and had an idea to put a photo of each one of them into the frame, BUT the big problem was that they did not have have recent photos!!! Hence the decision to do a family shoot!! As life changes on a daily basis, and each member of the family is normally so busy, how wonderful was it, that they grabbed the opportunity to have new photos taken for their new photo frame!! Too many times, people place having new photos taken on the back burner simply because they have "no time" or it's something "you can do tomorrow" but sometimes, tomorrow never comes!!
