I still can't quite believe that 2016 is done and dusted! What a year! For some not so great but for us it was pretty special. Not only did we add a new member to our family; Mr Max Anthony, but we met awesome new families, went to epic weddings and captured some pretty awesome pics. Even more brilliant was winning Gold, Silver and Bronze awards in the Admired In Africa competition.
That said I am not sad the year is over, I am ready for a new year and all that it means to start fresh, get creative and try something new. But before we get stuck into things, here are some of our favourites from the past year. From babies to bumps, engagements to weddings, beaches to forest and everything in between, we have shot SO much and we have loved every second.
Happy New Year!... read more
We simply could not stop taking photos of this family. They were so ready to have fun on the beach, from stamping in puddles, jumping over waves or exploring waterfalls. In a family of cellists, gymnasts, ballerinas and future rugby players, the options were endless. They made our job easy and we just love the results. ... read more
Ballerinas, labradors, beautiful girls, a derelict hotel, chandeliers, toenail polish and delicious monsters; this is the type of family shoot we have been dreaming of doing!
Shan had so many awesome ideas of how she wanted to capture her girls; the things they do together, the games they love to play and we just ran with it. We changed locations (a lot) they changed outfits (a lot) and we had so much fun.
We think the photos are pretty epic and I have been dying to share them with you. Here is just some of the many we took, I hope you like them as much as we do... read more
We did this shoot months ago and I can't believe I never blogged about it. So much fun with plenty of jumping kids, smitten grandparents, crazy dads and happy babies. Too much fun!... read more
Whenever we do a family photo shoot we are under pressure to take beautiful and unique photos, but when your client is one of Ballito's most talented family and newborn photographers, Taryn van Rensburg, then we really start to sweat. Luckily it was the perfect afternoon and Jex Estate was once again an amazing location. We so loved hanging out with you and your many many boys Taryn, thanks so much for asking us to take the pics!... read more
We have been taking photos for the Mbanjwa family for over a year, from a magnificant bump on Zimbali beach to a gorgeous little boy in the rolling hills of Hilton. We have just loved getting to know this family, especially little Aphile and his gorgeous smile... read more
My favourite part of this family photo shoot with the Hilburns was just how much the brother and sister adored each. They were so happy to be in each others space; to hug and laugh together. You really can see the love over flowing in this family of four on a beautiful autumn afternoon in Joburg... read more
We loved shooting this beautiful family in a secret private garden in Simbithi Eco Estate. I was once again reminded why we love to shoot outdoors rather than ask families come into a studio. Nothing like a big garden where little boys can run free, tackle their dad, chase bubbles and cuddle with mom... read more
