Niccola // In Studio

27 March 2018

Niccola contacted me at the end of last year to do a shoot for her to commemorate her 50th birthday. She has done photoshoots at the start of each decade of her life - what a wonderful idea.

She didn't want any make-up done or any photoshop retouching as she wanted this shoot to be a true reflection of who she is at this age and who she has become. She brought in 3 simple outfits and a tiny purse of accessories and we spent a fun afternoon in my studio.

I absolutely love photographing women over 40 - there is a certain confidence and self acceptance that seems to come with time that is so beautiful to capture. Niccola is completely comfortable in her own skin and just lovely to photograph.

Deidre is Irish, Jon is American and they currently live in Angola with their two gorgeous little girls. We met early on a Saturday morning at Camps Bay where the kids could run and be play and the light was beautiful.

I met them at my studio 2 days later to show them their images and they chose their favourite images to be printed and bound in a beautiful fine art album.

The Feinbergs // Llundudno Beach

20 March 2018

I've photographed this family so many times over the past few years and watched how they have grown from three to four to six. It's all a beautiful chaos with little kids and twins in the mix and it's so clear that Vanessa and Greg completely delight in their children.

This time I met them early at Llundudno Beach where the morning light is gorgeous and the beach is safe and contained for littlies to run around.

Liina, Matthias and Osten were on holiday from Sweden for little Osten's first birthday in Cape Town.

They wanted relaxed family portraits on a beach and so we met at Muizenberg on a late summer afternoon. Their little boy is just too adorable.

I've photographed this gorgeous family several times over the past few years when they're in Cape Town and it's been lovely to see them regularly and to witness and document their growth as a family.

This time we met at Llundudno beach which has beautiful big boulders and gorgeous light.

Laura's Family // Roundhouse Forest, Cape Town

27 February 2018

Laura and Steve live in the States but were over on holiday for a few weeks in Cape Town. I met them in the morning for a shoot in the forest where I photographed them a few years back as an engaged couple - it was so special to come back to the same place with them as a family.

Despite being hauled across the world 2 days before, their kids were so charming and lovely and they were such a pleasure to photograph. 

The day after their shoot, they came back to my studio and selected their favourite images which we printed and bound into a gorgeous 12 inch fine art linen album with 'Cape Town 2017' embossed on the front for them to treasure forever.

Sedonia's family // On location, Newlands

26 February 2018

I photographed Sedonia and her family on a Saturday morning at their beautiful home in Newlands. I love photographing shoots at people's homes as it's personal and comfortable and dogs can be included too!

A few days after her shoot, Sedonia came back to my studio and we designed a collection of portrait art for her home as well as a portfolio box as a keepsake. I visited her a while later to see what it looked like and to take a few photos - it looked amazing! There is something so exhilirating about printing photos BIG.

22 February 2018

I photographed Mary and Rick and their boys on two separate shoots at their home in Franschhoek - one when little Christian was nearly brand new and then a few weeks later with their other son, Daniel. 

Mary wanted something more dark and moody and at the second shoot the most beautiful thunderstorm pelted down around us and was perfect for this kind of feeling.

They chose their favourite photos to be printed and bound in a gorgeous 12 inch album, which we embossed with the date of our shoot... which amidst a relentless drought was even more special to remember.

I did this shoot quite a few months back with the most lovely Jen... who is just beautiful inside and out.  She came into the studio to have her hair and make-up done and then brought in a few outfits where we photographed just her on her own. Her beautiful daughters, Anna and Livia joined in for some shots at the end - they are all just too precious.
