Lavender Mini-session – Mommy & Me

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.

Lavender Mini-Session – Bodenstein Family

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.

Lavender Mini-Session – Carter Family

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.

Newborn Session – Adrian

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.

Christmas Family Shoot

Family christmas shoot I did for this beautiful family, they are just so much fun to work with that it hardly feels like work. We played around with some fake snow, decorated the tree a bit and even had a surprise early christmas present from santa. I photographed them for the first time last year, also for their christmas shoot, and I just loved seen them again this year.

This year for christmas I bought a new wood themed backdrop and I think it works beautiful to add warmth and touch of home to the images.

 

Creed’s 2nd Birthday

 

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.
