I have to say – even tho’ I’ve said it before – I LOVE MY JOB! One of the most amazing things about being a photographer in this glorious part of the world, is visiting the farms and the families who live there. Each one so different but so beautiful in their own unique way.
So it was, my privilege and my pleasure to capture the Walker Family on their farm somewhere in the hills of Mooi River. Paula had been given a voucher for a family shoot at her baby shower. The little bump that was, is now the most precious sausage with cheeks that are so squishable you have to control yourself. Big Sister Molly is a delicious little person totally unto herself and Paula and Ryan – two very special peeps we are lucky enough to have in this neck of our woods.
Here you go guys xxxx
Steve owns a paint shop. Eileen is a wife and mother to three busy children. Lucky for us, they decided to branch off from paint and parenting to open up a coffee and interior/gifting shop.
Rather amusingly, you have to go through the paint shop to get to the coffee shop. Bread & Butter and Living Textures came to life less than 6 months ago. After a personal tragedy last year, Eileen needed something to challenge her and occupy her physically and mentally. Since then, this establishment has become a destination in the area. Situated close to Elkanah High School and slap bang in the middle of Builders Warehouse and the West Coast Village Shopping centre (with Blaauberg netcare hospital down the road) Bread & Butter has become a meeting place for all sorts. Mommies having a quick coffee after the school drop, business meetings, church meetings, in-between-gym and shopping meetings. Aside from astoundingly good coffee (Steve has a secret recipe for their own blend), mouth-wateringly delish cupcakes and muffins and rather yummy open sandwiches, there is an array of goodies to buy as gifts. From wooden hearts that will permeate any room with the soft smells of lavendar, vanilla or sandalwood to gorgeous ceramics made by local potter – Hayley. Coffee and good nosh aside, if you’re looking for a gift or a self-spoil, you will definitely find something here, at a reasonable price nogal.
