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!”

Roy, Lara & Adam’s family photoshoot | Cape Town

Finally got around to doing Lara’s family photoshoot last week.

Every time I saw her in the last couple of years Lar said she REALLY wants to do her family photies at some point.  Eventually I think I just said, “yes”, what-eva 🙂  Seriously tho’ – I honestly thought it would never happen. 

Well,  clearly, it did.  And what an awesome experience and enjoyable few hours it was.  So easy to see that the little dude is the complete apple of both of their eyes.  Talking of eyes – see if you can spot his amazing duo coloured ones !

When I arrived at Rhodes Memorial there was a humungous film shoot going on – they’d taken over the whole area that I wanted to use.  So – we improvised and decided to try a few other spots.  Slightly out of my comfort zone but it worked out well in the end.  I think Roy was relieved he didn’t have to sit on one of the lions anyway, he he.

The light in the late afternoon was so beautiful.  Soft, gentle long shadows and snippets of light dancing on the grass made it look  like it lit from below  Lara looked beautiful, Roy didn’t seem to fazed by the whole photoshoot thing, which I thought he would be – and every so often Adam gave me a beautiful moment which helped capture the ties that clearly bind this beautiful family.  When Adam poked his Dad in the eye with a stick I thoughts its perhaps time to call it a day.   

Thanks guys!  It was real.
