I met this beautiful family early in the morning for a beach shoot at Llundudno beach. I love doing shoots there in the morning as it's quiet and the light comes behind the mountain so beautifully. 

Matthew is 3 years old and Isliedh 14 months old and they are both super-adorable kids.How beuatiful is this little face?

I photographed Katie and Theo's wedding in Paternoster a few years back and now they are parents to the two most gorgeous little kids, Matthew and Annabelle.

They are both architects in Bloemfontein and were on holiday in Cape Town for a few days and we met up on an autumn morning at Llundudno Beach - which is one of my favourite beaches to shoot at.

When they were back in Bloem, we did a viewing of their photos over Skype and they selected their favourites to be printed for a beautiful album.

I met Julia, Andy and their two gorgeous kids, Noah and Jessica, at a greenbelt in Constantia on an autumn Saturday morning. They are such a warm and lovely family and it was also so special that the grandparents were in town to join in for a few shots.

They came back to my studio a little while after to view their images and decided to print some mounted photos for a portfolio box and also chose a few favourites for their home.

I photographed Katie and Ryan's wedding way back in 2009 and just before then also photographed them as a couple at Llundudno Beach. They are the most laidback and down-to-earth couple. 

Fast forward 9 years and we went back to the same place that we did their couple shoot on a beautiful autumn morning. Now they are rocking parenthood with the two most adorable children, Taylor and Willow; and have created such a beautiful little family unit.

They came back to my studio and chose the images that they absolutely love and are going back to the UK with a beautiful box of images from their time in Cape Town - the best souvenir.

Irmgard's Family // Camps Bay Beach

21 May 2018

Irmgard and her husband, children and their partners are some of the warmest and most lovely people I've had the priviledge of meeting. They are from The Netherlands and came to Cape Town for a holiday in March. Her daughter, Joy, contacted me before the time as an idea to do the shoot as a gift for their mother's 50th birthday.

I met them on what must have been the windiest day of the year in Camps Bay. We struggled with the wind and then found a fabulous cave which had the most beautiful and interesting light.. and somehow wind always adds some beautiful movement despite it being relentless and very sandy.

They came back to my studio 2 days later to select their images and after much deliberation, decided to print an album of their photos as a beautiful keepsake to always remember their time in Cape Town.

I've photographed this family so many times over the past few years and watched how they have grown from three to four to six. It's all a beautiful chaos with little kids and twins in the mix and it's so clear that Vanessa and Greg completely delight in their children.

This time I met them early at Llundudno Beach where the morning light is gorgeous and the beach is safe and contained for littlies to run around.

Laura and Steve live in the States but were over on holiday for a few weeks in Cape Town. I met them in the morning for a shoot in the forest where I photographed them a few years back as an engaged couple - it was so special to come back to the same place with them as a family.

Despite being hauled across the world 2 days before, their kids were so charming and lovely and they were such a pleasure to photograph. 

The day after their shoot, they came back to my studio and selected their favourite images which we printed and bound into a gorgeous 12 inch fine art linen album with 'Cape Town 2017' embossed on the front for them to treasure forever.

I photographed Sedonia and her family on a Saturday morning at their beautiful home in Newlands. I love photographing shoots at people's homes as it's personal and comfortable and dogs can be included too!

A few days after her shoot, Sedonia came back to my studio and we designed a collection of portrait art for her home as well as a portfolio box as a keepsake. I visited her a while later to see what it looked like and to take a few photos - it looked amazing! There is something so exhilirating about printing photos BIG.

I photographed Mary and Rick and their boys on two separate shoots at their home in Franschhoek - one when little Christian was nearly brand new and then a few weeks later with their other son, Daniel. 

Mary wanted something more dark and moody and at the second shoot the most beautiful thunderstorm pelted down around us and was perfect for this kind of feeling.

They chose their favourite photos to be printed and bound in a gorgeous 12 inch album, which we embossed with the date of our shoot... which amidst a relentless drought was even more special to remember.

I did this shoot quite a few months back with the most lovely Jen... who is just beautiful inside and out.  She came into the studio to have her hair and make-up done and then brought in a few outfits where we photographed just her on her own. Her beautiful daughters, Anna and Livia joined in for some shots at the end - they are all just too precious.
