Winter Shoots

Big family reunion. When family comes together from two different countries and 3 different provinces of South Africa, no stormy weather will scare the fun away.

I felt so privileged to be the chosen photographer and capture that special day.

Family photo shoot is a great tradition.

Photographing this beautiful family is turning into a tradition: from pregnancy with their first child to big busy family with two kids. It is exciting to watch Viljoen family grow and to capture their journey.

Family photo shoot as a tradition.

Human Family Shoot

It is always such a privilege to continue telling a story of a family. Suika and Justin trusted me to capture their family photos, when beautiful Kate was a baby bump and Jake was still waiting on meeting his little sister. Human family once again welcomed me into their world to capture memories.

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.

RHODES FAMILY SHOOT

What a special experience that was. Beautiful Rhodes family photographed at the Wilderness beach, Garden Route, South Africa.
This young family already expecting their second child. It was a very special moment when little sister after playing on the beach ran to her mom to give a kiss to her future sister/brother in the tummy. Oh those moments are so precious and so worth capturing. We ran, we jumped over the waves, we played, we laughed and stood in awe watching magnificent sunset over the ocean.

YULIA AND VITALIY

Yulia and Vitaliy are a Russian couple who travelled through the Garden Route of South Africa last month. Yulia contacted me for a love story photoshoot in Mossel Bay.
Her idea was to create romantic photographs that will focus on vastness, beauty and landscapes of South Africa. They were fascinated by this country and wanted some memories of their travels together. Here is what we created.

MATERNITY: ANNIE AND PIETER
