KZN Family Photography {Mooi River] – Kent Family

KZN Family Photography – Kent Family

There is a lot to be said for country living.  Well.  I guess I’m not much of a city gal so for me – there’s everything to be said about country life and Clare and her family certainly embody what this is all about.

As well as living with 8 horses, 2 jacks, about 100 endemic dwarf chameleons, the odd cat and who knows what else, Clare grows the most amazing veggies.  If you join her gym class at Fordoun (she’s a real tyrant) you’re more than likely to come home with a gorgeous, fresh, organic head of broccoli (and a very sore body).  I have to say, I’m looking forward to her future crop of asparagus!!!

Its quite clear where this family’s passion lies and it was a complete pleasure to capture them in their home environment.  This is why I particularly enjoy “location-style” shoots as opposed to in studio with flash.  People are generally uncomfortable in front of the camera so it takes awhile to warm up and chill out.  When a family are in their own space its a lot easier to chill and actually enjoy the experience rather than feeling spare and wondering what to do with oneself.

Thanks Kent brood.  In the words of the great non-president:  “I’ll be back!”

KZN Boudoir Photography {Miss C}

KZN Boudoir Photography – Miss C

Boudoir happens to be one of my favourite genres of photography.  The metamorphosis I see from when a person walks in to my studio and when they leave – is enormously satisfying.  Its a lovely experience and definitely nothing to be afraid or nervous about.

Miss C found me through google and I am so glad she did.  A special person, inside and out.  Thank you for trusting me with your confidence Chan.  It was lovely getting to know you a bit and spending some time showing you how beautiful you really are !

Beautiful You | Styled Teen Photoshoot

Beautiful You | A new idea | Teen Photoshoots | Mom ‘n Daughter photoshoots

Its one of those ideas that’s still taking shape. Teen Photography appears to have a little gap in the market all over, which is weird.  Also, there are a million wedding and family photographers out there.  I love Boudoir photography but us Capetonians are generally a little shy.

Having lacked serious confidence as a teen, despite (according to my folks) being quite pretty and skinny (Wednesday legs),  I want to use my skills as a photographer to show young teenagers how beautiful each and every person is.  No matter how tall or short,  pimply or olive skinned, straight hair or curly, quiet or flamboyant. With the odd prop and some good humour, some soft light and gentle encouragement I’d like to portray the bits that make a young girl (or guy) so beautiful – purely by virtue of the fact that they are who they are.

A lovely quote to keep in mind:

“Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature’s laws wrong, it learned to walk without having feet. Funny, it seems to by keeping it’s dreams; it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared.”
Tupac Shakur, The Rose That Grew from Concrete
