Lifestyle newborn shoot | Jamie

I love photographing families in the comfort of their own homes. Everybody is more relaxed and it captures their environment as well as the relationships for years to come. And this family is very special as I took their wedding photos last year and their maternity shoot a few months ago. I love it when I can walk a road with families and capture their most special moments.

I hope you enjoy the photos with me!

 It was such a privilege to have this great family in front of my camera again. We cannot wait for this little girl's arrival!

A stunning family, a beautiful dress and an awesome location! What more can a photographer ask for!

Michael & Simoné | Het Vlock Kasteel

Such an amazing couple, a beautiful venue and a love that cannot be broken. i enjoyed this wedding so much, seeing old familiar faces, working with great vendors and enjoying the scenery and the quietness of the "platteland". I hope you enjoy the photos with me!

Zonnevanger wedding | Allan & Caroline

I just loved this couple - they are so in love, their story of how they met is so romantic and the detail of their wedding day was amazing. The deep romantic colours of their flowers and decor was beautiful together with the breathtaking views of this venue, it made a perfect day! It is always a pleasure to photograph wedding at Zonnevanger.

Val de Vie wedding | Khanyisa & Babalwa

Having these two in front of my camera again was so special! The love between them was tangible and they really adore each other. With the manicured polo field and beautiful mountains views at Val de Vie  setting the scene for a very romantic, glamorous day. In every little detail of this perfect day you could see their personalities of love and compassion for their family and friends shine through. 

I hope you enjoy the photos with me!

De Uijlenes Wedding | Christoff & Gisela

This is one amazing couple - they adore each other and could not be more excited about starting their life together. They have such an amazing love story and I felt so privileged to capture this very special day for them to treasure for always.

Neil & Natasha | Montpellier, Tulbagh

What an amazing couple, a beautiful day, awesome venue, professional service providers and a very special bond to be made for eternity. Montpellier is one of my favourite coutryside venues. You feel as if you were on a holiday after being there.

I had so much fun at this wedding! Candice-Leigh outdid herself with making the bride astonishingly beautiful. Was great to collaborate with charl from Agapé Studio at this wedding. 

I hope you enjoy the photos with me!

 I just LOVE lifestyle family shoots. And this one was so special! We have been photographing the Orchard family for years and I just love capturing all these special moments - and now I had the privilege of photographing their beautiful little girl. And in their SUPER beautiful home!

These lifestyle shoots are so relaxed and the kids love showing me their rooms and hang-out places.

Sunrise Engagement shoot on the beach

Just when I thought 4:00 is early to wake up for a shoot, I hear this beautiful lady had to wake up at 2:00 in the morning to get her make-up done!!! So committed, and so worth it! They looked dressed for success!!

I just love what we got! What an amazing place we stay in! Babalwa, I am so looking forward to your guys' wedding!!!

Lifestyle Newborn shoot | Demetriou Family

This shoot was once again very special for me. I have photographed this family a few times before and it is so awesome for me to capture special moments in their family life. And what makes it even more special is that we did the shoot in one of our apartments that we rent out - Durbanville Accommodation.

Even though their baby was 5 weeks old during the shoot, she was an angel and slept right at the perfect moment :-)

Meerendal Crown Restaurant Wedding | Charl & Lindsay

This is such a beautiful venue and it is alway a great honour for me to photograph a wedding at Crown Restaurant at Meerendal 

It was the first time ever that I saw a bride watching gholf while having her hair done for her wedding day :-) But if that is what keeps you calm, whatever works for you, ha ha!

Charl and Lindsay is a great couple and it was awesome to have them in front of the lens again. We did an engagement shoot with them on a very misty beach with their two dogs and I even won an award with one of their photos!

I hope you enjoy the photos with me.

Sunset maternity shoot | PG & Louise

It is always a privilege for me to capture a couple's highlights of their journey. I photographed PG and Louise's wedding a few years ago and now we are celebrating their 2nd child already! Their daughter was a tough cookie to crack during the session, but she is such a sweet little girl and very excited about her brother that is coming soon.

I hope you enjoy the photos with me!

Mason Cake Smash

 Ah this little guy is so cute!  We had so much fun and we can't wait to share their shoot's video! He enjoyed the bath a bit more than the cake, but we got a lot of cute reactions throughout the shoot :-)

I hope you enjoy the photos with me!

Baby Maximus shoot | 7 months

This was a very special shoot as we celebrated life as well as life trough breastfeeding. Due to the protection of the privacy of the parents, we will not share that part of the shoot's photos, but all the others of this little guy is so cute - so happy to share them with you!

Family love and laugther | Odendaal family

It has been a while since we have done this shoot, but Jana loved the photos so much that she took her time to choose which ones I should edit for her :)  I love these photos - it says so much about the family - they love their kids, they have lots of fun together and mom and dad is still so in love. I hope you enjoy the photos with me!
