Oliver’s Christening

Catherine has been living abroad for many years in some of the most amazing countries and is now married to a loving American husband. But, for their first born's Christening they chose to come to the picturesque Hemel-en-Aarde valley to celebrate this special occasion with friends and family. After a beautiful private ceremony, everyone sent Oliver their blessings by lighting a sparkle for him, because the wind was not allowing any candles to burn for longer than a few seconds! This however just added to the festive and joyous atmosphere of the day, which was rounded off by some great bubbly and a delectable spread for lunch. Thanks so much Catherine for choosing me to document this momentous occasion and treasured family gathering for you. I wish you all the best and hope that the photos does the day some justice!

Niehaus Familie

Die Niehause is familie van goeie vriende van ons en dit was so lekker om hulle te ontmoet tydens hul onlangse besoek aan die Kaap. Hierdie fotosessie was weer een van daai waar als net perfek saamwerk en die mooiste foto's amper moeiteloos geskep word! Die twee pragtige dogtertjies met hulle spontane persoonlikhede en uitdrukkingsvolle gesiggies is enige fotograaf se droom! Karen, dankie dat jy my gevra het om jou gesin af te neem, dit was 'n groot voorreg!

Loubser Gesin

Dis altyd vir my so lekker om goeie vriende af te neem, veral as die fotosessie sorg dat ons paaie na 'n lang tyd weer 'n slag kruis. Ek en Wilhelm het mekaar op Universiteit ontmoet en daarna nog gereeld saam gekuier, maar terwyl ons oorsee was is hy getroud en dit was die eerste keer dat ek sy pragtige vrou en twee dierbare seuntjies ontmoet. Ek hoop hierdie is weer die begin van nog baie kuiers saam. Dankie dat julle my gekies het om julle af te neem, dit was heerlik! Geniet die foto's!

De Kock Family

Didi has been one of my dearest friends since we met on our very first day of Unversity. As roommates we've often dreamed of one day when we are both married with children and how our lives would be then. Well, here we are. Our husbands like each other (that was a prerequisite for whom we could marry ;-) ) and it's just an added bonus that our children are more or less the same age and they get along great as well! After three and a half years of being a professional photographer, I was so pleased when she finally asked me to take some family photos of them! She wanted a very relaxed, unpretentious, lifestyle shoot, mostly of the kids. I enjoyed the shoot so most, I could have done it all day. It felt like a play date with my best friend's kids, and I loved every [...]

Coetzee Gesin

Dit was 'n absolute plesier en voorreg om die pragtige Coetzee gesin weer te kon afneem! Hulle is so spontaan en liefdevol, almal lag maklik en boonop is die kinders mal daaroor om afgeneem te word! Baie dankie vir 'n heerlike fotosessie. Ek hoop die oumas en oupas is mal oor hulle Kersgeskenk!

Pierson Family

This cute little flower arranger is choc-full of personality! She was very dedicated to her floral arrangements during the shoot, but together with her sassy personality it created quite a good story board in the end! Thanks so much for letting me photograph your lovely family Karon. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Schoonwinkel gesin

Die Schoonwinkels het nog 'n pragtige seuntjie ryker geword sedert ek hulle in Maart afgeneem het en het foto's nodig gehad vir sy doop. Klein Benji is te oulik vir woorde en net so vriendelik en maklik om af te neem soos sy ouboet, alhoewel hy nie die slag so baie lus was vir foto's soos die vorige keer nie... Maar dis juis die spontaniteit en onvoorspelbaarheid van kinders wat dit vir my so lekker maak om hulle af te neem. Hulle is vir so 'n kort rukkie klein en ons as ouers probeer desperaat vasklou aan elke herinnering van hoe hulle lyk en wat hulle sê en doen. En net so is al die emosies wat hulle binne 'n uur kan deurwerk kosbare herinneringe! Baie baie dankie dat julle my weereens die vorige gegun het om julle te kon afneem. Ek waardeer dit geweldig baie!

Dis die derde keer dat ek die voorreg het om die pragtige gesin af te neem en die slag het hulle 'n baba boetie ryker geword. Baie geluk, mag hy vir julle baie vreugde bring!!

Frans Groenewald

Affluence is a free Lifestyle magazine that will be distributed in the Winelands area soon. They have asked me to come on board as photographer and I am very excited to see where this new partnership will lead us. For the first issue we did an interview with the extremely talented and sharp-witted Frans Groenewald at Lourensford Wine Estate where he has his studio. During our visit Frans was very relaxed and friendly, shared his favourite coffee with us and allowed us to take a few shots of him in and around his gorgeous workplace. Look out for the magazine to read more about this interesting and artistic man!
