Mommy and Me sessions, such a beautiful way to celebrate the bond between a mother and her children.
Beautiful mommy, Natasha and her angle Mikaela had their Lavender Mini-session on a perfect sunny day, it truly was picture perfect with such a photogenic pair. I loved every moment, from capturing their love to post production.
The bonds I am blest to witness as a photographer, capturing peoples precious memories will for ever be a honour.
Oh my… I am so excited to share these beautiful bride and groom portraits.
With such a beautiful couple and stunning location it makes the photography part really easy.

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.
With the beginning of sunset this couples session had everything, held at the brethtaking Lourensford wine estate.

Touching wedding held at the stunning Cascade Country Manor.
I relish in the opportunity I receive when Im asked to capture the love and beauty of clients wedding day.
With the wedding dress, decor and vows, ever second is full of emotion and excitement that you share with your loved ones.
Last year I photographed this little munchkin’s first birthday party and this year I got to photograph his second, everything was Barney and friends themed and Barney himself even made a surprise appearance and the kids just loved it.
It just amazes me how fast he has grown, last year his mom and dad had practised blowing out the candles with him, so he could blow out his own candles on his birthday, this year he couldn’t wait to blow them out and he got them on his first try and just look at that face, his going to be breaking hearts in no time.

Here we have Essie’s first birthday party and what fun was had! With yummy snacks, bubbles and a jumping castle the kiddies just had a blast. Even the weather was on their side, despite the previous few days rain.
I just love photographing kiddies parties, there is no better way to capture the most natural photos of pure joy.

I could barely wait to share these photos of this beautiful wedding with you.
I had the amazing opportunity to second shoot on this beautiful outdoors wedding, as nervous as I was to take part in my first wedding shoot I couldn’t wait to get shooting at weddings and I was more than happy wit the outcome of the photos. I learnt so much from just this one day and continue to assist and second shoot so I can learn as much as possible and I have helped out on a few weddings since. I have also decided to start shooting weddings myself and am hoping to share one of my own wedding shoots with you shortly, so keep an eye out.
I had so much fun both shooting and editing these image and can’t wait for winter to come to an end now and wedding season to take hold.
Hoping you like my work, for more I am on Facebook at Nikita VdV Photography or check out my website at Nikita VdV Photography.
I am so please to have been part of this lovely day, spent at the Ostrich Ranch. The day started off with everyone meeting at the ranch and having a stroll in and around the little souvenir shops, followed by quick group photos before a guided tour around the inner part of the ranch. Where we were shown the skeletal structure of an ostrich, the size of their eggs, compared to other bird eggs.
Then everyone got to pet and feed some of the ostrich’s, as well as meeting the ostrich that holds the world record for been the worlds smallest ostrich. then if you wanted to you could have a sit on one of the tamer ostriches, as the birthday girl did. Followed by drinks, celebrations and a great meal prepared by the ostrich ranches restaurant.
This was both an educational and relaxing day spent celebrating in a slightly different way.
This was also my first time using my new 50mm f1.8 lens Nikkor lens, that I had been just dying to use and the results are better than I was expecting, it didn’t take long to become my favourite lens.
