Some advice for future brides from Kylie ?

My advice would be to relax and enjoy getting ready with your bridesmaids, the lead up to walking down the isle is such a special moment spent with those closest to you. I spent the entire day full of nerves and I wish I had chilled out a bit more. I would also say, in the middle of all the fun, stop and look around you, remember everyone there, is there for you 🙂

Funniest moment of your wedding day?

There are many funny and embarrassing moments, however I think my father forgetting his socks had to take the cake for me. He had this smart suit and shoes on, and every time he took a step you could see his skiny hairy ankles poking out.

Family Photography | The Kamberg Valley | Steyn Family

According to the Kamberg Tourism website:

“The Kamberg Valley is home to a group of friendly, hospitable people who are gregarious, happy, experimental, social, fun, outgoing and wonderful people. The Kamberg Valley is one of the most beautiful areas providing easy access to the Drakensberg and the Midlands. Once you have visited us, you will be sure to come back for more.Visit the Kamberg and you will experience, peace, tranquility, vast open spaces, a community which are “the salt of the earth”. The valley is essentially a farming one, but as Kambergians are social “animals” we love to host visitors in our valley. Tourism has not taken away the Kamberg experience but has rather added to it.”

Well – if they Steyn Family were anything to go by – the above quote is pretty accurate.

The 4o minute drive up to their potato farm was pretty breath-taking.  As I wound my way along the Kamberg Road – passing the turn off to the utterly charming Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse – I felt lost in my thoughts and utterly at peace.

So the next two hours spent photographing the family in their garden and lovely home was an absolute pleasure.

Portrait & Portfolio Photography | Cape Town | Dani M.

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.
