Bayvel Family // Studio shoot

Bayvel Family // Studio shoot

21 December 2016

There was quite a lot going on at this portrait shoot. First the ladies came in to have their hair and make-up done and then the kids arrived - while the kids were fresh, we photographed them and then spent some more time photographing the ladies.

Lisl, Don, Isla and Amelia // In studio

15 November 2016

I photographed Lisl and Don's wedding nearly ten years ago and they now have two most beautiful little girls, Amelia and Isla. I photographed them in my studio a few weeks back. How gorgeous is Amelia? I love photographing little girls in studio as they tend to sit still and love the camera.

Studio work is a bit different to my normal kind of style but it's lovely to shoot in a controlled environment (out of the wind) to get more classic and timeless images where the focus is on people more than the environment.

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.

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.

Jacqui, Neil, Nick and Mia

27 August 2015

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?

Grant, Taryn and Ethan

14 June 2015

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.
