I absolutely love documenting people at different phases in their life journey - I photographed Candice and Aaron's wedding in Stellenbosch a few years back and now they are very relaxed and lovely parents to the most edible little guy, Finlay.
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.
Simone and her family were all together in Cape town from London and New Zealand and decided that it would be great idea to do a family shoot on the rare ocassion of everyone together. I met them early in the morning in Constantia and was very happy to have gotten out of bed for such a lovely family.
Little Dylan was born after just 27 weeks inutero and weighed just 480 grams at birth. Hayley and Duncan spent the first few months of his life traipsing in and out of NICU.
There was no time to do a maternity shoot or any of the 'usual' things that first-time-moms get to do when preparing for the arrival of their baby and so Hayley commented that this shoot felt like the first little step of normality in terms of becoming a mother.
Dylan is super-cute with huge and beautifully curious eyes and Hayley and Duncan are such besotted parents.
