I spent a few days in June doing some work for 4di Capital photographing the start-up companies that they are investing in. They wanted relaxed black and white portraits for their new website.
I photographed this beautiful family early one autumn Saturday morning. We met at a greenbelt in Constantia for a few shots and then headed to my studio for a few shots.
I love looking for different light and creative opportunities on location but more and more I love photographing people in studio where there are no distractions and where the focus is soley on a person and capturing a beautiful portrait.
I photographed a maternity session with Tammy a few weeks before she was due and then this gorgeous little boy surprised them a few days early.
I just love capturing the preciousness of a newborn baby's arrival into the world without any props or distractions. It was too beautiful to see Jamie with his new brother.
I met this beautiful family early in the morning for a beach shoot at Llundudno beach. I love doing shoots there in the morning as it's quiet and the light comes behind the mountain so beautifully.
Matthew is 3 years old and Isliedh 14 months old and they are both super-adorable kids.How beuatiful is this little face?
I photographed Dave and Tammy's wedding quite a few years back and now they have a beautiful little boy, Jamie and were expecting their next little boy.
Tammy came into the studio on her own for a few shots of her bump and then the boys joined a bit later for some family photographs.
Neebashnee contacted me a little while back to have a photoshoot of herself in Cape Town as she had moved down from Joburg a few months ago. She has also recently turned 40 and wanted to have a photoshoot in celebration of this milestone as well as moving cities.
She brought in some beautiful outfits and Tarryn Fox did a beautiful job with her hair and make-up. We did most of our session in my studio and then headed outdoors for a few shots at the greenbelt nearby.
I photographed Katie and Theo's wedding in Paternoster a few years back and now they are parents to the two most gorgeous little kids, Matthew and Annabelle.
They are both architects in Bloemfontein and were on holiday in Cape Town for a few days and we met up on an autumn morning at Llundudno Beach - which is one of my favourite beaches to shoot at.
When they were back in Bloem, we did a viewing of their photos over Skype and they selected their favourites to be printed for a beautiful album.
Shelley is a single mom to the most lovely and very energetic Gabriella. As she is often behind the camera, she wanted to do a girly mother and daughter shoot in studio with the focus on beautiful shots of them together. They brought in a few outfits and played dress up and had lots of fun dancing around in the studio. After some time we headed out to the greenbelt in Constantia for a few shots.
I met Julia, Andy and their two gorgeous kids, Noah and Jessica, at a greenbelt in Constantia on an autumn Saturday morning. They are such a warm and lovely family and it was also so special that the grandparents were in town to join in for a few shots.
They came back to my studio a little while after to view their images and decided to print some mounted photos for a portfolio box and also chose a few favourites for their home.
Fast forward 9 years and we went back to the same place that we did their couple shoot on a beautiful autumn morning. Now they are rocking parenthood with the two most adorable children, Taylor and Willow; and have created such a beautiful little family unit.
They came back to my studio and chose the images that they absolutely love and are going back to the UK with a beautiful box of images from their time in Cape Town - the best souvenir.
