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
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.
Organising a 5 year old birthday party isn’t always easy unless your child LOVES the Spur. Easy as pie. No cleaning. No fuss. Kids loved the food and the party packs and played up a storm. Birthday party photography – its all in the detail!!!
Hard to resist the desires of a 4 year old boy. No longer the chooker buffer. No more dunn dunns. Luke decided he wanted his birthday party at the good old Spur. With a select group of school buddies, his brother, his Mom, his grannies and his Aunt and cousins – he had an absolute ball. Totally chuffed with the whole day, the food, the pressies, the friends. It was perfect!
Thank you Lukie – for being such a wonderful gift to me 5 years ago. You have enriched my life beyond anything I could have imagined. With all my heart – I love you.
