I've photographed this gorgeous family a few times over the years and it's been such a priviledge to document their journey and growth from year to year.
We again met one afternoon in winter at the greenbelt in Constantia. They love black and white images and so this post is all monochrome.
I photographed the Lisle family and their dogs, starting out at their home in Hout Bay and then heading down to Llundudno beach for the soft evening light. Dogs are such a beautiful and important part of families.
It was a very bittersweet shoot as their oldest dog, Ticka, was 17 years old and had only a few days left to live.
I photographed Jenny and Jorn's wedding quite a while back and then again when Sam was a few months old. This time we met in Green Point Park where these guys come as a family quite often and where there is space to wander and explore.
I photographed a maternity session with Meryl when she was 36 weeks pregnant - she is so beautiful and glowing.
It was a freezing cold and windy day at Muizenberg but she braved the cold and the wind made for some gorgeous shots.
I've done a few shoots for Rennette over the years with her beautiful boy, Finn but this time she contacted me to photograph her on her own as a celebration of herself and her journey for her 41st birthday.
Rather than having hair and make-up done and being overly-photoshopped, she wanted a more natural and raw shoot with some darker and moodier elements and her true self showing.
Thank you Rennette for letting me share your photos with the world.
Sue came into my studio a little bit earlier this year for a portrait shoot. She started off with having her hair and make-up done and then brought in some of her favourite dresses and outfits to get some different looks. Her gorgeous little daughter, Holly, joined in at the end of the session to get some beautiful mother and daughter images of the two of them.
How adorable is this beautiful little girl? I photographed Ashleigh and Gareth's wedding a few years back and now they have this adorable little cherub, Grace. They came into my studio when she was 7 months old for a shoot. It's such a gorgeous age to photograph babies as they generally are sitting but not moving yet and are developing such cute little personalities.
