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.
As an animal lover I fell head over heals involve with Storm, she is such a well behaved little girl and her pet session was one of the easies photoshoots I have ever done.
Storm and Kate are such a well suited pair, the love they share for each other is beyond words and you can see their connection in every look they share and each command Storm obeys.
I couldn’t have asked for a better photoshoot to start of with after moving to the United Kingdom. I could spend all day every day photographing owners and their pets, each one shares such a special connection beyond words. I truly believe animals have the purest of souls and this is shown in their unconditional love for us.
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.
What can I say about Rebecca and Adam… Just WOW.
I had such a wonderful time with Rebecca and her husband Adam. They were absolutely amazing, braving the cold weather with me and making just the most adorable couple.
I know cold weather can be a bit daunting for a photoshoot however it can be so much fun on a couples photoshoot as it is such a great excuse to cuddle up with you loved one and get some great cozy photos.
I had the amazing opportunity to capture such a beautiful mommy and her prince Adrian, at only a few days old and he was such a champ.
This was my first newborn session and I am just over the moon with the outcome of this session. Photos of your newborn are such a precious keepsake and something you will always have to look back on fondly, one day when your little one is all grown up you will back able to look back and remember when it all started and just how tiny they were.

Another wedding I am very excited to share with you.
Lindsey and Leon had a classic and elegant wedding, the reception was held at one of the nicest churches I have been to, with large decorative windows allowing beautiful lighting (a photography dream).
The reception hall was stunningly decorated, with white and touches of pink and green as their colour scheme, my personal favourite wedding colours.
After photographing this lovely couple on their wedding day, I couldn’t wait to edit and share the love story.

I was so happy to be part of this colorful and elegant styled bridal session.
Everything in this session came together so well, the wedding dress, cake and the slightly different table setup. Using fruits can be a fun and unique way to decorate your wedding, along with surprising your guests with something they wouldn’t expect.
