Carola Ann’s – Soul Food

You know when you get excited because you will have good food, and it is actually nutritious and it looks amazing. Well that is Carola Ann’s Restaurant for you. Chef Corelie De Villiers Shami  and her husband Samuel Shami share their passion for food in their daily creations.

The restaurant is located at the centre of Mossel Bay, just around the corner from the Tourism Information Center. It is really worth a visit. I must admit I was very hungry after this photo shoot. Here it is, some yummy soul food for you.

Forest Family Shoot

What a fun photo shoot  that was! Looking for fairies and monkeys in Wilderness forest with De la Croix family. Photographs taken in celebration of Melissa and Michael’s wedding anniversary and 1 year birthday of beautiful Violet. 

Melissa is a beauty and parenting blogger herself. Interesting stories and insights on her blog Pretty Messy Melon

Breastfeeding  photos became a special part of the photo session. Breastfeeding is the most amazing, natural and nurturing relationship between a mother and a child. Mothers milk not only helps baby to grow and  develop a very strong immune and nervous system, but also creates a special bond between a mother and a child. A bond that helps both of them on their journey.

Wilderness Beach Photo Shoot

Family photo shoot at Wilderness beach, South Africa. It is turning into a tradition with these awesome four. Last year I photographed this family while Anette was still pregnant with little Jack. It was so exciting to meet everyone once again.

Carla and Gerhardt Wedding in George

I had the privilege of capturing another unfolding love-story on the breathtaking Garden Route of South Africa.

High School sweethearts Carla and Gerhardt exchanged their wedding vows on the 1st of August 2015, in front of their family and close friends, at the farm-style wedding venue Uitsig.

Utsig is situated at the foot of the scenic Outeniqua Mountains, outside George, and the venue offers a beautiful garden, ideal for wedding photos, with lots of fresh air to keep the nerves calm. There’s also the odd cow and some beautiful trees, which offers the perfect setting to play with the soft afternoon light.

Here are some highlights from their special day for you to share and enjoy!

About Boudoir Photography

Boudoir photography is the art of capturing the sensual nature of femininity. It is a celebration of a women’s beauty.

I imagine boudoir style to be a mixture of elegance, sexuality and internal beauty shining through. Boudoir photoshoots can become very therapeutic through accepting your body and celebrating its beauty.  Brides also love to order boudoir photographs to surprise their grooms on their wedding day.

Most of my boudoir photographs stay unpublished due to the privacy concerns. On this page you will find a small collection of photographs from some gorgeous ladies that felt brave enough to let me showcase some of their photographs.

Du Toit Family Photo Shoot

Meet Du Toit Family.

This happy bunch first appeared very shy in front of my camera. But few playful tasks for boys, couple of Russian words and some encouragement helped them to open up! I find it is always easier to photograph families with kids in a very playful way. We have been crossing rivers with crocodiles, jumping from one ship to another, climbing trees and just being silly. Parents love to play along and help transform common park into a real scene of action. Thank you for such fun photoshoot, so blessed!

Ilze and Tal Engagement Shoot

These two love birds couldn’t stop laughing throughout the whole engagement shoot. Deeply in love, playful and beautiful – that is how I would describe this couple.

Before the shoot we scouted  some funky places in and out of Knysna. We started off by taking photographs in a cafe “Trobb” (Knysna) with a very cosy and creative set up and slowly moved to beautiful Buffels bay. I found out that both Ilze and Tal are fond of nature walks, hikes, swimming and surfing. therefore we were looking for spots that would represent their nature spirit. Buffels Bay river mouth, ocean rocks and foresty hills of Buffels Bay became our backdrop.

Ilze looked like a real fairy. Their genuine love was shining through.Thank you, guys, for an  amazing shoot. Enjoy the photographs of our photo adventure.
