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….

Save the Tie Save a Child Fashion show Opening Night: Behind the Scenes

WOW what a rush opening night was. The models started getting ready from about 3 O’Clock the afternoon. Then while some was busy with hair and make up the rest walked the ramp to get the feel of it. The day was filled with laughter, talking and of course taking snapshots… I went back stage a few times to capture the buzz but space was a problem so I just took a few and then moved back to the stage area where I captured the models practicing.

The little one’s was so confident I think some of them have more confidence in their pinkie that I have some days… Oh my and when they are on that ramp they have attitude and some of them walk just like the models on Fashion TV.

Here are just a few collages of the photo’s I took.

After the show some of the models mingled in their tie dresses with the guests while enjoying a finger dinner. The designers posed with the guests and models and we all just had a great time…

3 Sisters Having fun Featuring on Website

One thing that I love about my job is meeting different people. Every person has his own personality and that 3 sisters can still be so close is just wonderful. I had a blast capturing these three sisters and the shoot went by in a wink of an eye.

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….
