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.

Forever together

Forever together

Tuesdays are my new favourite day for weddings.  Between the busy city hustle and bustle somewhere on the 3rd floor of a skyscraper, they said – I do.  May all your adventures be together and with God.

 

Oh the places you’ll go

Oh the places you’ll go

I am sure you will find plenty of adventures for you and your little sister to go on. “Oh, the places you’ll go.” -Dr. Seuss

Between a teething toddler and sleepless nights, this little angel also makes sure mom and dad get plenty of laughs in. She loves it when her Dad swings her by the arms, and while he recovers from the dizzy spell she is off to find her next adventure. Keeping us all fit and on our toes, she is awaiting her little sister’s arrival in Septemeber. Holding thumbs from a spring day baby.

Time flies when you’re having fun

Meeting up in Jan Cilliers park in Waterkloof, sounded like a perfect spot for a family that wanted to include their furry family members in their photo shoot.
Only challenge – the freezing weather – but not to worry – apparently it was just us humans that considered it cold – the dogs went for a swim the moment they had a chance for a free run.

Just like no one would expect the dogs to sit still, I seldom expect the kids to sit still for longer than a few seconds. It usually allows me to capture them while playing and capturing natural moments.

I just love how much fun it was.

Cherish these memories – time flies when you’re having fun.

A boy is on the way

Mom drove a VW Beatle way back, so we thought it would be fitting to borrow this blue beauty from a friend. I think I love blue even a bit more after spending some time around this Beatle.

Winter sunset

Winter Sunset: Rademeyers

I am definitely a summer person. Don’t get me wrong: I love winter when it’s beautiful and sunny though, like last week Saturday.

I don’t really care about the cold – But I will allow winter in if I can have sunsets like these every day.

 

 

 

Sometimes miracles come in pairs

.Sometimes miracles come in pairs

This is my second set of twins for the year – well at least second photo shoot of twins for the year. Secretly always hoping to have my own set of twins one day, I can see that having two babies at once is just something so totally different then having one.  It is just extra special.  A miracle happens every time a baby is born, but having two at once is just double the miracle. Such a blessing to be part of your growing family.

Enjoy every moment of gazing in their eyes.

May her heart be loving and giving
May her hands be busy as he/she learns and grows
May her eyes take in the beauty all around him/her
May her ears hear what is good and true
May her mouth sing with rejoicing
May her feet walk on life giving paths which lead to love and truth
May her mind be full of hope and forgiveness
May she come to know you as father
And live within your kingdom.

Pretoria East – Cake Smash

1 + 1 = Twice the FUN

When you turn one, it can only be fun. With a colourful rainbow themed birthday, the scene was set for fun. The party started with the birthday boy and girl taking a short but powerful nap after greeting all the guests.   We celebrated with a cake smash and discovering that sugar is nice.

Happy Birthday L & L

Judith – Judith – Judith

 Whiles chatting and laughing about memories from their childhood and dreams about the future it gave me plenty of opportunities to capture new memories.  Oh, and Gucci- We had fun. Let’s add another Judith to the mix in a couple of years and do this again but in the meantime, we need to go for coffee soon in Pretoria.

A family is precious.

Let’s have a summer Christmas

Many might know this song by Laurika Raugh.. One I can never get out of my head once it is stuck.

Welkom o stille nag van vrede, onder die suiderkruis,
Wyl stemme uit die verlede oor sterrevelde ruis.

Hoor jy hoe sag die klokke beier in eeue-oue taal.
Kyk, selfs die nagtelike swye vertel die ou verhaal.

Voel jy ook nou Sy warm liefde as ons die dag gedenk,
Toe Hy sy Seun aan ons gegee het – Ons grootste Kersgeskenk.

Kersfees kom, Kersfees kom – Gee aan God die eer.
Skenk ons ‘n helder Somerkersfees in hierdie land, o Heer.

Precious little moments

Blessed for living this new day
A gift from you to give away
Blessed for sharing
Blessed for caring
Blessed for growing
Blessed for sowing
Blessed to be a blessing today

Lace Inspired Wedding- Tulips and White Dresses

Lace Inspired Wedding- Tulips and White Dresses

A group of talented Gauteng-based wedding suppliers came together earlier this year to create a styled shoot to capture the beauty of the venue Anro Floral Farm with their flower tunnels: home to hundreds of white tulips as the backdrop of the couple shoot.

The joy of any artist would probably be escalating the moment you tell them they have an opportunity to get creative for no other reason than just to have fun. Our model, Lana Enslin from Boss Models Johannesburg started the day getting ready with Jdv Styling for an upstyle and make-up.

Winter Play Time

In the land of family photography, dreams and make-believe the rhinos aren’t endangered and wild animals are our friends.  Elgar and Ylva had so much fun with this shoot showing off their fluffy PJ’s.  Jumping on the bed was allowed and no animals were harmed during this shoot.

Blue my favourite

 Blue eyes are my favourite

Having talent is like having blue eyes. You don’t admire a man for the colour of his eyes. I admire a man for what he does with his talent.

City Mouse goes to the Farm
Irene Farm never seems to fail to entertain the kids, even though it is just a farm.

Thanks for the special moments we could share. Hope we can do it someday soon.

My Favourite Potchefstroom’er

Spending many years living in Potchefstroom as a student it is always fun to go back. But one thing I really miss is having my friend close by for regular “kuiers” over a cup of tea.

At least we “kuier” over photo shoots.

Looking back on your engagement shoot, I am privileged to have been there all the way through the wedding up to the second little girl coming your way.

You are truly blessed. Enjoy family life.

A Little Girl is on Her Way
When girls can share shoes I believe you connect in a special way. Well at least talking about our love for shoes also creates a special connection.

If they were only the right size… Oh what will a girl do?
