I met 9 month old Zetske, her mom and grandmother at the beautiful Vergelegen Estate for a photo shoot. The first thing I noticed was Zetske’s absolutely gorgeous, piercing, ice-blue eyes, but the poor girl missed her nap and those gorgeous eyes didn’t shine quite as bright as they could. We did what we could for a little while, but photo’s should be fun and a conjure up a fond memory every time you look at them, so I suggested we do another get together at their home where Zetske feels most comfortable. I couldn’t believe the transformation when I saw her the next day! She was bubbly, playful and funny, and those eyes!! Never underestimate the power of a good nap! šŸ˜‰

And then the real Zetske came out….. šŸ™‚

    Wow Helette!! Mal oor hoe jy die persoonlikheid van hierdie oulike dogtertjie vasgevang het! En ek weet hoe uitdagend dit kan wees! Mal ook oor die editing van die laaste klompie fotos – die vintage kleure pas perfek by die dogtertjie met die mooi blou oĆ«! Jy het fantasties gedoen hier!
