PARIS, ROBERT & LEONARDO

It is such a privilege to be part of the journey recording couples becoming parents - from the pregnancy to the arrival of their first child. Paris and Robert looked completely besotted with their beautiful, blue eyed baby boy Leonardo - I think they forgot I was there! Such joyous photographs - I hope you like them and such a pleasure to photograph you all.

BRAD, CANDICE & LUCA

It was wonderful to photograph Brad, Candice & Luca in their lovely home. I had photographed Candice’s pregnancy 15 months earlier so it was a double joy to meet gorgeous Lucca and to photograph Candice’s second bump. It was very special to do the shoot at home and Lucca was so happy and comfortable to be in his own space - it felt like we captured a little slice of your life! So excited that you have a little girl coming to join your family soon!

PARIS' MATERNITY

It was such a privilege and honour to be asked to photograph Paris and Robert a week before the due date. We were blessed with beautiful evening on Llandudno beach and I could not have wished for a more fun and adventurous couple! Paris, you looked so beautiful pregnant and I hope these will be a reminder of your splendour

SARA'S FAMILY

For my friend Sara, as promised, here is your birthday present - some family photographs of your most beautiful family - Maor, Eliya, Aitan (and dogs Glen & Stanley) photographed in your home and your beautiful garden in Harare. It was so lovely to get to know your children and spend time together. I have some new best friends! I hope you enjoy your photos.

Sacks Family Shoot

It was such a pleasure to re photograph the Sacks family ten years on! I couldn’t have wished for better models, better light or a better location. You made my job such a joy and lovely to see you all together. I wish you a very happy birthday Avril & hope you enjoy the photographs of your beautiful family.

ISEUT'S FAMILY

Such a pleasure to photograph my friend Iseut and her beautiful family on the beach in Langebaan a few weekends ago. Despite the gale force wind, we had a lovely session. The photographs are testament to what a lovIng family you are. I hope you enjoy these! Thank you for coming into my life Iseut, as soon as I met you I felt we were two peas in a pod! Special thanks to @sharimakeup for beautifying everyone!

Belen, Alex, Tessa ( Jack & Bert)

One of the luckiest things that happened to me when I moved to Cape Town 11 years ago was I met Belen. It’s been a friendship and a family for me and I wanted to give something back to my dear friend who has so completely steadfast in her friendship and love. Thank you Belen, here is a gift to you to show my appreciation of you & our lovely weekend in Langebaan together! Special thanks to Shari Rendle (@sharimakeup), who did beautiful natural hair & make up for Belen.

SASHA'S FAMILY

As a photographer, it’s wonderful to see the families you photograph on regular intervals. I’ve been photographing Oscar since he was 2 (he’s been one of my favourite models) and such a pleasure to see him again as a cheeky & almost front toothless boy! My December holiday in Knysna happened to lap over Sasha’s family reunion in Noetsie, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We had a lovely shoot with the last light of the day in this most beautiful place. I really enjoyed our time together.

IRENE'S FAMILY REUNION

I met Irene recently on a yoga retreat and she asked me to photograph her family reunion. We chose the amazing Buitenverwachting wine farm to give the shoot a traditional Cape background.It was so heartwarming to capture the wonderful bonds between the siblings and how happy everyone was to be re-united for Christmas holiday. Irene, I hope you’re having a very special time together and these photographs will remind you of your happy time.

SAN & SANDRA'S FAMILIES

A very quick family shoot to celebrate 2 lovely families coming together before Christmas and heading off on separate holidays. Since the sun was blazing, I made a impromptu studio in Sandra’s beautiful home to do some simple family portraits. I hope you enjoy your portraits!

GREGOR & JAMIE'S MATRIC DANCE

It was such a pleasure to photograph Gregor and Jamie before they went off to their Matric Dance - they both looked beautiful and their excitement in the air was tangible! The baby blue Mustang was an amazing prop for our shoot, but sadly, it only made it as far as the shoot and not much further! I hope you enjoy your pre-dance photos!

the wonderful wardalls

Friend and fellow photographer, Brenda Wardall, and I have been doing family photoshoot swaps over the years, as photographers never seem to be in any of their own family photographs! Hope you like your photographs, you look really great on the wrong side of the lens too! 

brad & candice - maternity shoot

When Candice suggested we do her maternity shoot in Oranjekloof Nature Reserve, at the base of Constantia Nek, I jumped at the opportunity.  We had a great shoot, Candice looked radiant, so did Brad and so did Candice's horse who graced us with her presence!  I hope you like your photos and they'll bring happy memories of your pregnancy with Baby Lucca.  Wishing you so much happiness and joy as you go into the parenting adventure!

 

MARIE'S FAMILY

We couldn't have been luckier with the weather - a perfect, wind-free, beautiful sunset evening on my favourite beach, Llandudno to photograph Marie's beautiful family (we were joined by a whole bank of photographers sharing the same idea!) Marie and I share a mutual love of our four legged friends and we have become firm dog-walking beach friends, so of course, Leo and Charlie, the Roman Waterdogs,  had to be included in the family shoot.  I loved photographing your beautiful family in your beach "garden" and I hope that we captured a fleeting moment in time!

 

 

SILVIA, FILIPO & MARTINA

It was a beautiful summer's evening on Clifton Dog beach to photograph dear friends Siliva and Filipo with their furry child, Martina, before they head back to Italy in March. Martina had a wonderful time chasing and barking at the waves and sure she will miss Cape Town.  Such a special bond you have with your beautiful dog.

THE LOVELY LAYCOCK FAMILY

It is especially wonderful to re photograph families after a few years have passed and to see how children have grown, and how girls have changed into beautiful young women.  It was lovely to spend time with you all again in the beautiful, sunny Kirstenbosch gardens and I hope that you will continue returning to Cape Town en famille. 

SUSAN & HER FAMILY

I had the privilege of doing a family shoot for my friend and life coach, Susan and her beautiful family. 

I knew Susan wasn't very happy about having her photograph taken but I hope that this photograph of you and your boys, will make it worth it for you.
