Talya and myself were at primary school together so its been a long friendship. My absolute favourite is to shoot my friends family. I love to see how we have all grown up and are happy in life. Tal's kids are just the cutest and I loved how Bella was such a model for me!
Baily had entered my annual WIN A FAMILY SHOOT competition on my Facebook page. I just love shoot extended families so when she asked if she could bring her parents I loved it. Grandchildren always have such a special bond with their grandparents and I love to capture that. We chose one of my favourite places to shoot in Westville as the sun is always amazing in the afternoon.
What a thrilling evening for the children in Dunkirk Estate this year. All the homes with balloons outside ( and some with great decorations ) offered huge bowls of colourful sweets to the kids dressed in fun and scary costumes. Not only was Halloween fun for the little monsters but the adults loved opening their houses and looking at all the excited children. There was even a mobile Halloween car handing out sweets as they said they were not getting enough traffic to their house. I'm really looking forward to next year again.
Family shoots are really my favourite to do, and i'm finding a lot of my clients come down on holiday and want a shoot on the beach, again my BEST! Umhlanga is such a great holiday town and there are so many great places to shoot all along the coast. for this shoot is was a special cherubs 1st Birthday and Olivia really was a joy to shoot.
I've known James ans Shannon for many years and when i got a mail from Shan to ask me to capture their family photo's I was so thrilled. I am way love to see old friends with their new families. The Mundell boys were so super cute they kept me and Simon entertained.
Umhlanga beach family shoots are my favourite. Nothing better than an early morning sun on the empty beach. I met Michal a few years back before I became a photographer full time. We worked together and the wonders of facebook we kept in touch. So when she acted me to capture her family photographs I was so thrilled.
