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.
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.

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.

The first Styled Bridal Shoot I arranged and photographed. I have been wanting to do a styled bridal shoot for some time now and after about two months of planning I finally pulled it off.
Adding a pop of warm colours in the bouquet and blanket that contrasted the chilly winters day nicely. As well as adding some warmth into the photos in post.
Beautiful model, Megan, braved the cold without a single complaint and just made the shoot a blast.
