I met Andrea, Warwick and their gorgeous little girl, Annabelle, for a shoot at Muizenberg beach on a chilly late winter's afternoon. She is a beautifully busy and curious little toddler who wouldn't stand still for long which always makes for a bit of unpredictability and fun.
I photographed baby Gabriella with her mom and dad on a wintry Cape Town's day just before her first birthday. We first shot at the Constantia Green Belt and then headed back to my studio for the majority of the shoot. How cute is this munchkin?
Zanele came into my studio a few weeks ago for a make-over portrait session. She, as all women do, told me that she is not very photogenic but I think the pictures speak for themselves - she is gorgeous. She wanted a very simple shoot in terms of clothing and wardrobe... and she completely rocked it.
Delaney Siebert did a beautiful job with her make-up.
I adore the preciousness of new life and to me photographing newborns is more about connection, simplicity and emotion than the distraction of too many props.
Luca arrived a bit early and was just over two weeks old when we did this shoot in studio.
Sylwia is a mixed media artist who does beautiful and inspiring illustrations and watercolours, some of which you can see here. She also takes lovely photos of her family but she wanted images where she was included - it seems to be the story of most mother's lives where they are behind the camera and not really included in the photos themselves.
She was on holiday in Cape Town all the way from Ireland wth her gorgeous little girl and husband - we met fairly early one morning on Camps Bay beach to do a shoot.
I photographed Kerry's wedding a few years ago and she wanted to surprise her husband with some beautiful portraits of herself and some boudoir images. She is so gorgeous to photograph and we had lots of fun in studio. Delaney Siebert did her hair and make-up beautifully.
Diana and Terje came to Cape Town from Norway for a few weeks, for the purpose of meeting their adorable baby boy, Patric and taking him home.
I met them on the beach for a sunset session where Patric was already so beautifully bonded to his new mother and settled into his family after just a few days together. How beautiful is this little guy and this lovely family?
They were out from the UK for a holiday in Cape Town and we met at Muizenberg beach.
Winnie was in Cape Town for a few weeks from Canada and wanted some beautiful portraits of herself here. She is a 20-year old history student and so down-to-earth and lovely to photograph. We started off at Signal Hill, had a brief stop for a coffee as she adores coffee and then ended up on Camps Bay beach for the gorgeous sunset light. She went home with a box of beautiful printed images of her shoot.
