About a week ago I had the pleasure to capture this lovely family.
Lady Benesia (7) just love the camera had no problem getting her to pose for a photo.
Little Master Eden (5) on the other hand was a bit difficult but with my magic and my finger always on the shutter button I got some awesome shots of him. In the end he did not want to stop posing for the camera. We really underestimate the power of a lollipop….
Little Master Christopher (4 weeks) was not feeling himself but he did give us the opportunity to capture him in between tears….
Finally it happened. We did it. We had Leigh and Rupert’s engagement shoot…..
Originally they wanted a shoot at Blaauwberg with Table Mountain in the background. Every time we had an available time set up Gail force Winds ruined it for us. So we settled for another setting. We visited Paarl Mountain Nature reserve for their shoot. We made sure that we were there when the gates open.
I fell in love with the Nature Reserve and I am definitely going back for some more shoots….
Little Milani was born on 16 January 2014 and I had the pleasure to do a onsite newborn shoot with her. Normally I do newborn shoots in my studio were I can control the temperature and light. I prefer to capture newborns in natural light. She was sound asleep and just now and again opened her one eye to see what all the fuss is about.
The little hat she is wearing in this photo my friend Jeanine Crochet for me…
Normally we take Louis-Thomas’s photo’s on or around the 15th of each month. In January we totally lost track of time and only did the shoot more than a week later.
This little blue eyed heart breaker had a mind of his own with his shoot. When we put him in his little chair he just wanted to get out. When we put him on his tummy then he’ll roll on his back and chew his fingers. When we put him on his back he rolled onto his tummy…. I had a good workout.
In the past our sessions was up to 90 minutes. From this one it will become less and I’ll have to know my story to capture him.
Christelle and I practically grew up together since I was 3 I think. I saw her fall head over hills love with Francois. I was there when they got married and started their beautiful family. My mother (a day mother at that time) took care of their 3 oldest daughters until they moved away. I saw them all pulling faces at their first bite of food,crawl, take their first steps and go off to school . So all and all this was a very special family shoot for me.
Please go and have a look at Marais Family on my website. Feel free to comment and like the photo’s too.
