Marette is a very dear friend of my mine and we’ve known each other for almost 20 years. She met the love of her life whilst working in London and now lives there permanently with Stuart and their two miracle twin boys. We therefor don’t see each other as often as we would like to and I haven’t even met the boys yet! So, when she called me in September to say that they will be visiting SA with the boys over the December holidays I was beyond thrilled. They rented a gorgeous house in Yzerfontein and we organised a lifestyle shoot right there and then. It was just fantastic to meet these two little princes who had quite a rough start in life being born as preemies. They are absolutely adorable! Apparently Ethan is the camera shy one of the two and always has a very pensive expression when being photographed, but for some reason, this little guy fell in love with me (or my camera!) instantly and flirted with the lens like a pro. Oliver on the other hand couldn’t be too bothered with this shoot. He had way too much to do and discover! Life with twins is hectic and chaotic and busy but at the same time also so beautiful and rewarding and special. I tried to capture the essence of this stage of their lives as it is and without any pretenses so that these images can serve as a visual aid to real memories. Because we all know time goes by way too fast and we forget the little things, even though we think we won’t.
