Dead trees with purpose…

There are just something about a tree dead or alive in the middle of a river or pond.

It looks beautiful even if dead and it serves a purpose too. For some it’s a resting place and for others it is a good place to dry off after nice bath….

Personally I love trees in water. The reflections they make is awesome and I love capturing it. Walking around the pond one can capture it from different angles and it never looks the same….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

Badenhorst Family Shoot Featuring on Website

A while back I got an email from Armand’s shooting coach and teacher. She wanted to book a family shoot for her and the three men in her life.

We went to Joostenberg Bistro on the R304 for their photo shoot. Of course I took Armand with to assist me with the shoot. We had a blast and laughed alot.  It took the oldest a while to warm up to the camera an in the end the boys were literally swinging in the trees….BFam133BFam66 BFam19 BFam120BFam126 BFam129

Wilken Family’s Vintage Shoot Featuring on Website

 

Danette contacted me one day and asked if I do vintage shoots… Well I never did one before but as you all know by now I never say no to learn something new…. First I panicked because what do I use for props? Then one afternoon I was dusting my show cabinet and there it was…. Old camera’s, my toy car my grandfather bought me when I was small, my Mother’s sewing machine from her childhood a old telephone my Father brought home one day and the list goes on….. In the end I had lot’s to choose from.

I hardly ever do set up’s for my shoots but after doing this Vintage shoot I think I’ll do it more often. I just have no idea where I am going to put all the props…. When it came to the editing of the shoot I did not do much I just played with the different effects.

I am very happy with the end results of this shoot

Strydom Family Shoot Featuring on Website

I met Natasha and her kids about three years back. I was very honored when she asked me to do their family portraits for them.

Normally children take a while to warm up to the camera, but not these two. They had their own ideas of how they would like to pose. The shoot was a breeze. Before we could blink the shoot was done.

Lizette and her two prince’s featuring on website.

I launched a Mothers day competition in May month. My student Lizette was the lucky one who won a photo shoot with me. We had a ball and she got first hand experience on how it feels to be a client at my studio. AJ her oldest child loved posing for the camera, Janco on the other hand had to be bribed. In the end we got lovely photo’s of them and even Janco could not stop laughing….

JP & Michelle’s One year shoot featuring on website

The first time I laid eyes on Michelle  she was only a few days old. WOW that was a very long time ago….

A while back I had the privilege to capture her and her special friend JP’s one year anniversary. I just loved the way he talked to her so sweet.

I wish them all the best for their journey as a couple and who know’s what the future holds…

Mr & Mrs Pereira Featuring on Website

Claire and Fernando got married on 30 November 2013.  What a beautiful and very windy day it was.  Claire got dressed at the Greens Lodge. Wow what a lovely setting this was. But due to running out of time the photo options here was very little.. I did take some photo’s of the bride outside but the wind made it very difficult and blew her hair and Veil all over the place.

We then had to go all the way to Sandrift for the ceremony. The Father kept the ceremony sweet and short and it was over in a flash. We took a few photo’s of the kids and then we went to Parow Golf Club where the reception was held.

All though the wind was howling we did go down to the golf course to take some photo’s at one stage the wind and sun was so bad that we headed back to the reception. I was not very happy with what we got on the golf course so later the evening when the light was much softer I called Claire and Fernando for a few extra photo’s….

I wish Claire and Fernando all the best for their future together as husband and wife. May their love grow stronger and stronger as time goes by.

Maritsa’s Photo shoot Featuring on Website

I had the wonderful opportunity to capture the beautiful Maritsa on 7 December 2013.

Maritsa won one of the vouchers I sponsored  for the Mrs Cape Town Pageant. She was 2nd Princess and are Beautiful inside and out. I only met her for the first time on 7 December but she is a really fun person to work with.

Her photo’s came out stunning and I have to thank my Co-Sponsor Sunette Olivier of Something Beautiful for doing an amazing job as usual with hair and make-up. I love working with Sunette she really knows her stuff and I never have to worry about touching up when she did the make up.  I can recommend Sunette to any bride you won’t be sorry you made use of this lovely passionate lady…
