It's always quite daunting when other photographers ask me to do a shoot for them, especially when they are pretty damn amazing. I did a shoot with Wesley Vorster and his husband Miles when I was up in Jozi a few weeks back. Although they've been married for 6 years already, they decided it was about time for some couple shots as well as a few family portraits with their four-legged kids. Apparently they're not into PDAs (public displays of affection) but I think they did a pretty good job of showing some love in Joburg city centre.
I don't usually photograph kids parties - let's face it, weddings are tame in comparison. But when Thabo approached me a while ago and suggested flying me out to London for Nia and Lerato's combined birthday party, I didn't have to think twice about it. Firstly, they're an awesome family whom I adore and secondly, I adore London which feels like a second home to me.
I have loved watching this family grow from just Gerard and Sandra, to the 4 of them. Jenna Rae was just 7 days old when we did this shoot. There is nothing quite so precious and mind-boggling as a new life. Thank you guys for letting me into your home to witness these amazing moments.
Neil and I were at varsity together, ahem, quite a few years ago. It's so great to see his transformation from a constant lurker at The Green Man to a doting father and husband. His and Vicky's little girl Emma was nearly 6 months old at the time of our shoot and supercute, with so much hair!
