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.
Last month, Xan asked me to shoot the new kids range from the company she and her sister, Charlie, founded. BENA makes the most beautiful luxury women’s and kids loungewear so I knew we would get some great images from the shoot. Xan’s best friend, Shelly, co-owns Dovetail, a children’s furniture and décor company with creativity and accessibility at its core, and they supplied the beautiful furniture and toys which just added to the clean look for the shoot. Please click on the links above to visit their sites to see full ranges.
PS. You might recognise one of the little models from this page. Yes, that is my son, earning his keep doing some part time modeling.
A little while ago I was asked my Melissa to shoot a celebration function held to commemorate her daughter Taye’s first Holy Communion. The function was held at the Reef Hotel which has a lovely entertainment area on the roof which was perfect for the group photos and a lovely restaurant downstairs where their whole family and friends joined them to celebrate. Such a lovely, warm group of people who made me feel like one of their extended family. Great time was had.
Last year Tamara asked me to shoot Brogan’s first birthday party but I was unfortunately out of town that weekend. This year, when Tamara asked me to shoot his party, I was super happy that I would be able to as I had shot Tamara, Kevin and Brogan when he was just a little guy and was really looking forward to shooting this lovely family again. Tamara went all out on his Spiderman themed party which looked fantastic (even if Tamara doesn’t agree). Here are a few of the pics from the day.
Another of our lovely Durban family shoots was with Kim, Mike and their boys, Sam and Jack. This time we had a beautiful beach location in Umhlanga Rocks. The heat was exhausting but we were able to get some beautiful shots of such a lovely, loving family. Can’t wait for our next Durban family shoot.
