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

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…

Heaton Family featuring on website.

This was the second time I had the pleasure to capture the Heaton family. Last year we had a studio shoot and this year we decided on an outdoor shoot. Little Miss Angelique had a mind of her own but I had back up this time. My son’s came to help me carry props and holding reflectors. In the end Angelique just love Lian’s attention and when we wanted her attention Lian came to the rescue.

Mom and dad was ready for just one or two photo’s of her that we could use…. It’s hard work capturing toddlers they need to be stimulated the whole time and if you have their attention you better hit that shutter button like mad… You will not be dissappointed. Just as fast as you have their attention you lose it again. I took nearly 300 photo’s on their shoot and in the ended up with 68 photo’s that made the cut.

Please feel free to go and have a look at the Heaton Family shoot on my website.
