Eden on the bay

I had a shoot at Eden on the bay with a lovely couple about a week ago.  The wind was howling and I decided to put away my Canon EF 18-200mm lense and use only my Canon EF 50mm for the shoot. My reason was simply because of the wind it would be much easier to handle in the wind and I was afraid that sand will get into the lense. Normally with my outdoor shoots I use my Canon EF 18-200mm and for my studio shoots I normally use my Canon EF 50mm.

Here are some of the photo’s I took while we were waiting for the couple. Lian my youngest came with to help me. He ended up carrying  props, backpack and shoes…

Zaide’s Matric Farewell featuring on website.

The original plan for Zaide’s Matric Farewell shoot was to go to a farm on the Bottelary road, but unfortunately they ran late and we had to improvise.

I ended up taking some photo’s in a neighbours garden and in the driveway a few houses down the road. The wind was also acting up and we had to make it a quick session.

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…

Leigh & Rupert’s engagement shoot featuring on Website

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….

For more on this beautiful couple’s shoot please visit Leigh and Rupert: E shoot @ Paarl Mountain Nature Reserve

Lise and Sean Baby Bump Shoot

On 21 May 2013 I had the pleasure to capture Lise and Sean only 2 days before she was going to become a mommy and daddy. I could not believe how flexible Lise was and it really looked like she had fun with her shoot. She was smiling from ear to ear.

On 23 May 2013 Sean and Lise  were blessed with a beautiful baby girl Casey Madison.
