She Had Me With Her Smile

She Had Me With Her Smile

It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living.

The Story of Brothers

 Because I have a brother, I’ll always have a friend.

You will also always have a companion – to do good with – to dream with and to go on adventures with.

Happy birthday sweet little girl. May your years be filled with sunshine and light.

Shine wherever you may go.

In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog.  If you’re lucky… A dog will come into your life, steal your heart and change everything!

These beautiful creatures are taking over the streets of Pretoria and Johannesburg. I have seen them on a few street corners, being sold by very friendly ladies. This is a family business and is growing rapidly. It is so wonderful to see how people are creating opportunities for not just one person, but extended members of the family.

The collection of animals are huge so make sure to start collection yours. They are all hand made with love.  By supporting Winnie’s quite Babies you are supporting a local small business. Go check out the Facebook page to see all the other animals or order your own creative design.

Well done and keep up the crochet ladies.

Often seen on the following street corners:
Olympus Leander Road, Pretoria East
Atterberry Road, Pretoria East
Wonderboom, Pretoria North
President Fouche Dr, Randburg,

You can also find them on WhatsApp 065 880 9220 to order if you are somewhere else in South Africa.

Happy Place

Ball boys and ball girls are individuals, usually youths, who retrieve and supply balls for players or officials in sport, like tennis. This girl was a bit star struck when we let her loose in the studio with 580 tennis balls. She is a big fan of the tennis ball and was in her element.

 

My Mom’s Wedding Dress

My Mom’s Wedding Dress

This is something I always wanted to do for a bride with a newborn girl, or perhaps a bit older little girl. It was such fun. Getting dressed up with hair and make-up. Sharing stories about their wedding day, the weather and her family and friends who attended the wedding. Amazing how one can remember so much detail of one specific day. But definitely a special day

The announcement came with these words as the world got introduced to little Mr C.

Right on time he came, already 50cm tall and ready for winter with a weight of 3.1kg.  He is definitely his parent’s favourite little boy!

Blessed, excited & loved

Speechless and definitely loved.

Hello Baby Girl

Welcome to the world and to a family that adores you.

Happy birthday

Happy birthday

After greeting all your guests and blowing out your candles (around 5 times or was it maybe more) it is time for a nap.
I hope you have candles that can light your evening dinner during load shedding without little ones blowing them out all the time. They are experts at blowing out candles many times.

Happy birthday L & L.

Meet Salome

Meet Salome

 

 

As a business owner and one man (girl) show I know what it takes to be able to call yourself an entrepreneur. It is hard.  It is harder than the job you had before you went solo. It is also very rewarding.

I love sharing stories of other small business owners I meet on my journey especially if I love what the do, deliver an awesome service or just get me excited about my business through their business adventures.

So without any future adieu let me introduce you to Salome.

 

My love + my passion = my work

I believe in the power of play and I believe that we are created to flourish. Every child needs to experience this positive way of living. My priority is to support children emotionally and teach them skills to

experience emotional well-being. This will be accomplished through play therapy. Play is the child’s natural way of communication and a medium by which to understand his/her world and make sense of it.

While playing, the child can project his/her situation, express his/her feelings and bring it to the surface. Where he/she can acknowledge, experience and master it.

Through the safety of play, children can experience their own new ways of being.

Play therapy helps the child to become emotionally and socially strong and improves the child’s self-esteem. The child is able to be aware of any difficulties and becomes empowered by being taught appropriate

techniques and making good choices. Parents also feel a sense of empowerment and achievement when armed with the necessary skills which will be given through guidance and tips. It is very important for parents to remember to connect with their child, as this is of utmost importance.

Research indicates the most important predictor of a child’s emotional and psychological stability is the closeness of the parent-child relationship.

It is connection, guidance and positive attention that will empower the child with a sense of wellbeing. Stay close to your child. Empathize and empower.

The reward will be priceless.

In today’s economy, I wonder what my two front teeth would be worth…

 

Guess what ?

Guess what?

Each day holds a surprise.

But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy.

It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.

Celebrate

Celebrate

The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments. If you don’t celebrate those, they can pass you by. Keeping secrets are part of the job.  I was so excited to be able to capture the reactions of everyone with the announcement.

Growing old with Grace

..

Growing old with Grace

I am a puppy princess. I am 11 weeks old and like true royalty, I was born with a sense of service and responsibility.

As I grow up I am taught to be in tune with my humans’ emotions – you see – I am a dementia support dog. When I am big I will help my human to cope in social circumstances and to calm down in times of stress. For now, I play and I learn and I swim. I do photoshoots and I dress up, because – that is what princesses do!

I love playing outside, exploring the wild outdoors, and getting as muddy as possible. I prance around indoors with my toys and love eating my training treats. I am fashionably pretty in pink and equally comfortable with animal prints. Which do you think should I be seen in more often?

My name is Grace and with grace, I happily perform my duties (being the cutest one in the room, always). As my human grows older and I grow up – you can follow me on Facebook: Growing old with Grace.

When you meet a person and is instantly chatting like you have known each other for ages, you just know this was not just a photoshoot.

Thanks for being brave, it was such fun to capture you under the Willow Trees.

Keep singing your victory song.

Purple Flower Carpet

When I look up at a vibrant purple jacaranda tree in full bloom it always makes me smile. It is such a magnificent sight.

You will find new Jacaranda trees, to remind you of the precious memories growing up in Pretoria, with its streets covered with a purple flower carpet.

All the best for the new adventure.
