Laura's Family // Roundhouse Forest, Cape Town

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

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.

Mary and her boys // On location in Franschhoek

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.

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.
