The Fenn family lived up the hill from us when we lived in Greymont in JHB and often saw me shooting in our local park. One day they stopped me to enquire about a family shoot for themselves. Luckily they did it just in the nick of time as we moved down to Durban about two weeks after this shoot. It was the last family shoot I did in our park. Really miss that place and will miss seeing all the little faces growing up there.
Moments pass and memories fade, even the ones we try desperately to hold on to. This is why we take photographs, as a visual anchor to the past. In doing so, we not only remember and learn from past experiences, but are reminded of the beauty and love that surrounds us. Very grateful to have been allowed the opportunity to do this for Clan Monaghan.
Niyathi and her lovely family are moving back to Mumbai soon and wanted to have a family shoot done before they left to help the family remember what a great place SA is and what a lovely time they had living here. The girls especially will miss it as the youngest, Samyra, was very young when they moved here. We all hope they have a safe and easy return to India and that they will come back to SA for a visit soon.
Karyn was gifted one of my family shoot vouchers by a mutual friend of ours. I love helping to capture memories for people, especially with young children as they grow so fast and vouchers make great gifts which keep giving for years to come. Little Courtney was a little shy at first but that only provided for some beautiful images of mom and daughter. Beautiful images of a beautiful family.
