Shahra in Studio

Shahra in Studio

12 November 2016

Shahra came into my studio where she had her hair and make-up done and then she brought several changes of clothing including the most amazing belly-dancing outfit, most of which she made herself. Bellydancing with  Soma is a big part of her life and she wanted to incorporate that into her shoot. I had so much fun spending a morning with her and photographing her gorgeousness. 

Not only is she a multi-talented dancer/creator but is also super-brainy and one of the nicest people I've met whose favourite colour is red.

Baby Oliver

Baby Oliver

03 March 2016
I photographed baby Oliver when he was just a few days old and so gorgeous. Lodea and Jeremy are two of the most doting and natural parents and so proud of their brand new little boy. To me, a newborn shoot is about new babies with their parents and the creation of the precious-ness of a newfamily rather than 100 shots of baby in a tea pot or with headbands on.

Ingrid, Simon, Jasper and Parvati

I photographed this lovely family when Jasper turned one and now there is a beautiful addition to the family - Parvati; who has also just had her first birthday. 

We met up on a beach in Seapoint early in the morning - one of my favourite times of day to shoot when the world and light begins to wake up.

Denise, Jordan, Sadie and Isla // Beach Shoot

02 March 2016

Denise, Jordan were out from Kent in the UK on holiday in Camps Bay with their two beautiful little girls, Isla and Sadie. I met them in the early morning to do a shoot on Camps Bay beach.

I love photographing little kids as they are so unaware of the camera and are just free to be themselves.

Gary's family // a beach shoot

Gary's family // a beach shoot

09 January 2016

I met Gary and his extended family early in the morning for a beach shoot - his in-laws were all out in Cape Town on holiday from various parts of the world and so he thought it would be a great idea to do a shoot with everyone together. With three little kids in the mix it was bound to be a bit chaotic. 

I always feel like I need four pairs of eyes with shoots like this, there are so many things happening. The wind was howling in true Cape-summer-style as usual... these guys were very chilled about it all.

Nola and James // beach couple shoot

Nola and James // beach couple shoot

15 January 2016

I did an early morning couple shoot in the howling wind with Nola and James, who were out in Cape Town from Henley in the UK. These guys were a pleasure to photograph - so comfortable with each other and clearly just have a lot of fun together.
