Let me introduce Lenie.  Lenie is older than me. When I was small, okay not that I am much bigger now, I loved Lenie. So my grandmother also Lenie told me that someday I could have her. Grandmother gave Lenie baths and changed her clothes regularly.

I speak under correction but if I remember correctly my grandfather won Lenie for my grandmother in a lucky draw….  Will come back to you.

When I prepare for my baby photography shoots at my home studio Lenie must play the part of the baby…. The other night my son told me I am to old to play with a doll.

Lenie is not just a doll she reminds me of my Grandmother who always told me to follow my dreams and heart. This must sound a bit silly but for me Lenie is part of my grandmother and with her in my studio my grandmother is also present…

I will from now on show off my new props on Lenie…. I think she loves being in the spotlight…

Playtime at Aunt Coreen’s home studio

Every now and then Aran will come and visit me for a hour or two.  I totally forgot to post these photo’s of his visit in December 2011.

As you will see he really enjoyed his visit playing with the props and posing for the camera… I can’t believe that next month he’ll be turning two years old. Time really don’t wait for nobody.



Look everyone I also fit in the pot….

Today I went on another shopping trip. I bought a black background for my home studio and just could not resist adding this pink little hat to my hat collection….

While on holiday I was constantly looking for props for my photo shoots. My photo of the day for today is one off the props I brought back home…

We went to a Farmers market on the first Saturday of our holiday. The whole time I was looking for something to use in my photo shoots.  I saw quite a few things but I had to keep in mind that I have a budget and space in the car was minimal. So whatever I buy must be small enough to fit in my bag or at my feet. I found these four hearts with Love, Hope, Peace and Joy in the last row of little stalls. I asked hubby if he can have a look at it. I wanted to know if I would be able to take the four hearts apart and use the separately.

I spotted some similar hearts made out of metal and wire at a few other tables too. The big difference was the other hearts was single and they cost around R40 per heart and it was approximately the size of the Hope heart. I wanted Afrikaans and English ones so it started working out a bit expensive. I  still had my whole holiday left and did not want to spend all my money at a Farmers market on the first day.

I used two of these metal hearts in my photo shoots over the weekend…
