I actually had the pleasure of doing Taya’s first birthday Smash the Cake shoot at home. Mom called and said that she had a lovely room with lots of light and that Taya would just be more comfortable at home. I told her story for as much as she would let me, but oh what a busy body she is! When Smashing the Cake time came, we had tears 1 minute in and so I onyl got one or two […]
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate then when I fall asleep your eyes close.” – Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, […]
I met with Wendy and Alan on a warm Sunday afternoon. They were both welcoming and kind. Wendy contacted me to tell her and Alan’s Wedding Story at Askari Lodge and I suggested we do the Engagement session somewhere close to home for some simple practise. Although I use the engagement or esession as a training session, it’s still always the creation of a story about two people who love eachother. These two have a soft quiet love between them […]
These two just looked amazing in their Matric Dance Attire! I arrived to help create images that told the story of this special time in their lives and was greeted with open arms. Ek doen Matriek Afskeid Fotografie in Kempton Park en oral in the Oos Rand.
Pona and Mzwandile’s wedding story starts on an early crispy August morning. These two stunning people got married at Thornbirds Conference and Wedding Centre. They hosted more than 200 of their favourite guests and what a party it was! I was also invited to share in the Traditional Wedding Story at Mzwandiles Family home afterwards, and could not have asked for a better way to learn more about the South African culture! Thank you both for letting me share in […]

Part two of Nikki’s family story. This was a super unique location! Nikki Organise the Garden Shop at Stoneridge for their second family shoot. It was a ten o clock shoot in the middle of the week so we didn’t have too many shop visitors to move around.
I have had the pleasure of telling and creating more than one story for Mukhove and her family. This family studio shoot happened at my cosy studio in Kempton Park. Watch out for more stories about this family.
Jacques and Laura are two easy going people. Jacques is a fun character who loves to fool around and Laura is a strong woman who is just the perfect balance for Jacques. Laura and I used to do show jumping together, and so it was just awesome to hear that she was getting married! They asked me to be their storyteller and we started with an e-session at the old riding school we met at! This was also partly a […]
Nikki is a friend from high school who contacted me last year. She currently lives in Switzerland, and wanted to enquire about a family shoot for when she visited South Africa. My favourite part about this story, is that Nikki’s father had not been able to spend a lot of time with his grand daughter over the years as they lived so far away. This shoot resembles not only a story, but memories created at a special time, exactly for […]
