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.
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?
