I photographed little James when he was just a tiny baba a few months ago and now he has grown so much at 7 months old; and obsessed with eating his hand. We started the shoot at a park in Claremont and then headed home for some shots in a tub of water which he absolutely loved. What a cutie.
I absolutely love seeing past wedding clients expand into little families and to observe their growth over the years. I've been lucky enough to photograph Jacqui and Neil over the past few years with their gorgeous kids Nick and Mia. This year we hung out down the road from their home at Noordhoek Common. How cute is little Mia?
I photographed Jenny and Jorn's wedding quite a few years back in Stellenbosch and they haven't changed at all.
After a few years of marriage, they've now had a gorgeous baby boy, Sam, who was 8 months old when we did this shoot. I had to laugh when Jorn said to me: 'You know, I never used to like coffee but now I have it all the time'. (After having babies I felt exactly the same; the level of sleep deprivation with those gorgeous creatures can be something else.)
I met them at their home in Mowbray and then headed to the park and local cafe.
I'm not quite sure where the years have gone to - I photographed Taryn and Grant's wedding way back in 2009 and now they have a beautiful curly-haired little guy, Ethan. I was pretty impressed that they came to meet me on a Sunday morning in Joburg for a family shoot.
I don't think I'll ever get bored of photographing people's journey's from a couple to a family - so beautiful. Ethan is a typical two-year-old who doesn't like to sit still and who wants things his way - so we just went with the flow of things on a Joburg winter morning.
I photographed Giuseppe and Nicole's wedding at The Cradle in Joburg way back at the end of 2007 and did a couple shoot with them in Cape Town in 2010 so I feel like I've known them a very long time. I absolutely love witness my past wedding clients' journey into parenthood.
When I asked Nicole how she was enjoying motherhood, she sighed and said 'Oh, I am so besotted.' How gorgeous to see you guys as such fabulous parents - and baby Raoul is so edible with his bright blue eyes and cute little mouth.
