Heike // In Studio and Location

Heike // In Studio and Location

20 February 2018

Heike lives mainly in Germany but comes to Cape Town regularly as she adores this city and is able to combine some work with play. This time she decided that she wanted to do a portrait shoot for herself both in studio and on location. (I love it when people want this option as there are such different images that you can get from both. Studio is more controlled and with more focus on individual aspects on someone wheras location is more about people being complemented by various things around them - there is always different light and textures to be found around.) 

Once we had done some shots in studio, we headed outdoors to Muizenberg and the wind was raging in true Cape Town summer-style, but it added a flow of movement and energy. Looking at these images, I don't think you would say that we were battling against sand in our faces...

Heike was just lovely to photograph - she is a strong woman with a zest for life, a youthful and adventurous spirit as well as the most beautiful blue eyes.

Ryan and Amanda live in Mozambique and were on holiday in Cape Town for a few days, staying at the most beautiful Lake Michelle in Noordhoek. 

I met them one morning and we took some shots around the beautiful home they were staying in which was based on Lake Michelle.  Their two children, Noa and Maile, were just too cute.

I met Andrew and Nikki and their two most adorable little girls  in August last year for a morning beach shoot at Llundudno. 

They were down from Joburg on holiday in Cape Town for while and the girls loved frollicking in the waves and having space to run around.

I photographed this gorgeous little family when baby Ava was a few weeks old - she arrived a bit early so was particularly tiny. 

I love capturing the preciousness of couples becoming a new family - I photographed Karien and Don's wedding day a while back so it was really lovely for me to see them as parents.

Amanda approached me to shoot some photogaphs for a modelling portfolio and so we shot a selection of natural, dramatic, beautiful and sexy images. 

She brought in a few dresses, a blue sarong, some casual outfits and a fabulous hat which she looked so gorgeous in. 

Delaney Siebert did a beautiful job with her hair and make-up.

Amanda Boudoir // on Location

Amanda Boudoir // on Location

05 February 2018

Amanda wanted to do a shoot with more of a 'boudoir' kind of feel as a gift for her husband's 50th birthday. She has a gorgeous home in Vredehoek with loads of light and beautiful furnishings so we decided to shoot there instead of my studio for something a bit more personal. She loves hats and wine and so we played around with those as well as her husband's scarf. She also needed some updated headshots for work so we incorporated those too.

After her shoot, she chose her favourite photos and we printed them out for a portfolio box to give to him as well as a large frame for their bedroom wall - too gorgeous.
