Wilken Family’s Outdoor Shoot Featuring on Website

The Wilken Family also wanted a fun outdoor shoot and fun it was indeed. At first we wanted to do both shoots on one day but I sat down and started thinking about the kids and the fact that they get tired and bored very easily. The evening of our meeting I suggested that we split the two photo shoots and also explained my reasons why. Mom and dad had no problems and understood completely where I was coming from.

I took Lian my youngest son with to assist me with the shoot. I just love the fact that both my boys are also interested in photography and I use them when they want to help. The kids loved him and like always he helped a great deal to get them to look at the camera. Because of the ages of the kids I tried to do the family portraits first and get them out of the way and then we moved on to all the fun and games. I had a blast photographing the Wilken Family.

This time of year the gardens at Joostenberg Bistro are just stunning and as you all know by now I just love taking photo’s there. The owners of Bistro and Farm are very good to me and I always visit the Bistro after a shoot for a to die for Dark Chocolate Milkshake.  This is just my way to thank them for the use of their beautiful gardens. I also try to give them some publicity and always tag them in my posts and on my social media pages.  Most of the families that had their photo shoots at  Joostenberg Bistro are still visiting there on a regular basis.

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….

Correia Family featuring on website

A while back I had the pleasure to capture the Correia family.  We did two shoots that morning. One for the family and one of Chase the newest addition of the Correia family.

Little master Cruz had a mind of his own like most 2 year old’s have. I am just glad I did get to capture some shots of him laughing…

Marais Family Shoot featuring on Website

MM_1439

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.

Otto Family Shoot featuring on Website

On the 2nd of January 2014 I had the honor to capture the Otto Family in my home studio.

Mommy Michelle was so excited about the shoot they tried to learn little 21 month old Mienke to say smile and then she smiled… But when it came to the push little Mienke did not smile at all we tried everything  she just did not want to work along.  While mommy was interacting with Mienke I saw she relaxed a bit and I told mom to keep going  I took a range of photo’s of little Mienke while mommy and daddy distracted her.  I had to crop and clone out mommies hand in all Mienke’s individual photo’s but at least I got some great shots.

Looking forward to our outdoor shoot later the month. Gonna put on my running shoes and  camouflage clothing so that Little Mienke don’t spot me….
