Karen contacted me to for a portrait session to capture some beautiful headshots that she can send to agencies... and also as a celebration of herself and the fact that she was turning 50 years old. Yes, 50 years old - I mean, how gorgeous is she??
I just loved photographing this gorgeous woman when she was 7 months pregnant. She had her hair and make-up done so that she was feeling fabulous and then we played around with different lighting and backgrounds and some outfits that she had brought in. Not everyone is comfortable with so much skin showing, but she is just completely comfortable in her own body.
I love the fact that she asked me to not photoshop the scars on her neck out - they are a part of her and who she is. After all, scars are part of our life experience and what makes us 'us'.
I photographed Denise and her beautiful family a few years ago at their home in Joburg. This time they where in Cape Town for a weekend and wanted some updated portrait photographs.
We did half of our shoot in my studio and then moved onto location for something different and to show some of Cape Town. These are some of the portrait shots.
I absolutely love photographing this family - not only are they all just gorgeous but they are some of the nicest people I've had the priviledge of meeting.
I met Frances, Devin and little Charlie on a winter morning at Tokai Forest.
Winter can be some of the best times to do a shoot as the light is so soft and lovely and there is generally no wind.
Charlie was 18 months old and too adorable.
Meryl brought in his bathtime towel to add in something personal and he looked adorable in it.
This is my favourite time to photograph babies as their little personalities start to develop, they can sit and handle a fair amount of stimulation. How cute is this little guy?
I did a shoot a few weeks ago with my own beautiful little girls, Mikaela and India, who are 6 and 7.
They are so used to having other people in my studio and were so delighted to be dressed up in gorgeous little dresses and having their portraits taken. I can't believe that these are my own gorgeous daughters and when did they get so big?
Nikki is an actress in Cape Town who needed some updated headshots for her agency since she had chopped her hair off since her last photoshoot.
She brought two outfits into studio and had her hair and make-up done by the lovely Tarryn Fox.
