This beautiful family asked me to photograph them as they were having the all to common problem of the one who was taking the photo not actually being in the photo, as a family photographer this saddens me.
Family photoshoots are such a sweet and special time, they capture the important milestones in a famous life, from becoming parents to you little one growing up and starting their family and every moment in-between.
These moments are important to capture as they help us remember the milestones more vividly and share them with others who are important to us.
A Christmas of firsts, such an important milestone in a family life, not only is it baby first Christmas but also a first Christmas as parents, could there be a more exciting time in a family life?
A once in a lifetime moment that’s over in what feels like a blink of an eye. This is why its so important to capture these moments, to create a tangible long lasting memory that can be shared with loved ones for many years to come and something for your life one to enjoy when they are all grown up.

I have had the pleasure to photograph the Bodenstein Family for three years, they are such lovely people always happy and ready to try new and fun things, so naturally when they contacted me to book the lavender mini session I was beyond excited to see them again, especially in this crazy beautiful lavender field.
I love seen how a family grows over the years and having the privilege to capture them as they grow each year is such an honour for me.
I am absolutely crazy about spring and last year I found a beautiful little lavender farm on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, South Africa. I knew I had to do some photoshoots here before it became time to harvest the flowers, so I ran a lavender mini session special and it was just the best time ever. Every time I came home from a photoshoot here I was covered in the scent of lavender.
The Carter family was my last photoshoot in Cape Town and it was so much fun, and adorable little family.
This is Little Liam at one month, looking back now I can’t believe how fast time has gone by, this little man has already started walking around and developed a liking for popcorn.
This was his very first photoshoot and he wasn’t very sure of me (the stranger in the house) at the time and didn’t like the flash going off at all but he has had two shoots since then and he had no problems at all. In fact he is well on his way to becoming a model , always laughing, smiling and looking directly at the camera for me, unless there’s popcorn to be eaten, hehe.
