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.
I had the pleasure to capture little Wihan at 2 weeks. He was born on 34 weeks. This little boy was wide awake in the beginning of the shoot but we got him to settle down in the end.
I had to laugh even though he was born early this little boy had very strong legs and boy oh boy he wanted them stretched out not tucked in. Later I just let him be. My motto is baby must be comfortable.
For more on his shoot please visit my website under Newborn to 12 Months.
With Louis-Thomas’s mommy working now and with all the bugs that goes around we had to combine his 7 and 8 month shoot. LOL how do you do that well he comes for his 7 month shoot 2 days before his 8 month shoot…
About a week ago I had the pleasure to capture this lovely family.
Lady Benesia (7) just love the camera had no problem getting her to pose for a photo.
Little Master Eden (5) on the other hand was a bit difficult but with my magic and my finger always on the shutter button I got some awesome shots of him. In the end he did not want to stop posing for the camera. We really underestimate the power of a lollipop….
Little Master Christopher (4 weeks) was not feeling himself but he did give us the opportunity to capture him in between tears….
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….
Little Milani was born on 16 January 2014 and I had the pleasure to do a onsite newborn shoot with her. Normally I do newborn shoots in my studio were I can control the temperature and light. I prefer to capture newborns in natural light. She was sound asleep and just now and again opened her one eye to see what all the fuss is about.
The little hat she is wearing in this photo my friend Jeanine Crochet for me…
Normally we take Louis-Thomas’s photo’s on or around the 15th of each month. In January we totally lost track of time and only did the shoot more than a week later.
This little blue eyed heart breaker had a mind of his own with his shoot. When we put him in his little chair he just wanted to get out. When we put him on his tummy then he’ll roll on his back and chew his fingers. When we put him on his back he rolled onto his tummy…. I had a good workout.
In the past our sessions was up to 90 minutes. From this one it will become less and I’ll have to know my story to capture him.
Today it’s to cold outside and I don’t want to be in the wind to long. Just got over the flu and are looking forward to my holiday in two weeks time. Today I took photo’s of Ruby on her “playpen” (our bed). As you can see the covers I put over keeps getting darker…
The coat hanger she’s busy chewing she got the first day that she came to us. It was lying in the sun-room and I wanted to throw it away but when she started playing with it I let it be. She is still playing with it but now it is in two pieces inside the cover. The Crocks I gave her also the day when she came to us this was to prevent her from chewing our shoe’s. It is working very good so far only one incident when she took my husbands shoe to her bed but she did not chew on it, she chewed her Crock…
Ruby is still barking at everything and the latest is chasing the poor birds when they come to feed….
