St. Annes Diocesan College {Chanel Dance}

KZN Midlands Photographer – Diocesan College ~ Gr. 10 Chanel Ball pre-drinks

Chiffon, satin, organza and lace. From soft pinks and pastels, blues and lavender to stunning red, teal, orange and emerald green. So it was with the beautiful young ladies of the St Annes 10th Grade.

I have to say, personally, I LOVE the long, elegant style that appears to be the preference in KZN Midlands schools. I’ve seen quite a few high school dance photos where the dresses barely cover bums. For me understated elegance and a chic sense of style beats sexy and sassy any day (at this stage).

The girls were all radiant and Helium balloons and photo booth props added a sense of fun to the evening. Last but least, the paparazzi (i say this with a smile). The proud Papas and pretty Mums who chaperoned their daughters to this particular dance.

I look forward to next year ladies <3<3<3

KZN School Dance { St Annes } – Hilton

KZN School Dance at St Annes

Nothing like a bit of nostalgia whilst shooting these beautiful young girls, dressed to the nines, for their school dance.  Lets not forget their very dapper partners from Hilton, Michaelhouse and College.

Always a bit of a tricky shoot with the proud Mums and Dads jostling to get a photo but so satisfying to see how gorgeous each and every one scrubs up.

Hosted by one of the Mums, the St Annes Gr 11 pre-dance cocktail party was fit for a princess.  Gorgeous smelling sweet peas laced the air, salmon canapés, Moet and 20 young women in the most gorgeous dresses added to the sense of heady celebration.

Enjoy!!!

Portrait & Portfolio Photography

Let me just say outright – I love Portfolio Photography.

I met Sharon awhile back when she was starting her fabulous Chic Sugar business in Cape Town and I was still trying to build my portfolio as a Wedding & Lifestyle Photographer. We agreed to do a trade exchange a couple of times and ended up working really well together.   So, quick punt for her;  if you’re looking for something really amazing, stylish, different and VERY sweet for any type of celebrations go on over and have a gander at Sharons’ fab website.

Anyway – it being December and everyone in Notties allegedly skedaddling all over the countryside and the fact that I had a wedding booked – I decided to head to Cape Town for the December.  So it came to pass that Sharon asked me to do a photo shoot for her 15 year old daughter.

These are the results.  They are rather lovely but then again it helps when you have a “model” with exquisite features (even if she doesn’t know it herself).  Dani – you’re gorgeous – don’t ever forget it.

Family Photography

It was an absolute privilege and a pleasure to photograph Melissa’s three children and their two cousins.  Little Claire May (love the second name cos its the same as my granny’s) certainly had a mind of her own but what a character.  And her little red shoes were the absolute berries.  I also loved the care and gentle way Benjamin treated his two sisters.  Going to be a formidable hand brake when those two get older.  Jennifer in the middle – what a precious little lady – who didn’t stop smiling – and what a beautiful smile she has.

And then the cuzzies.  Quite hard to get Mr Jason to smile but when he did – WOW!  it was worth it.  Both boys super cute with their little cousin.  So kind.  So gentle.  And so caring.  Thanks Melissa and Leeanne – for entrusting me with these precious photies.
