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.

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.

The Girl next door

Larry and Amy met when Amy was only 3 days old. Amy’s parents took her next door to their neighbours and friends, the Shuttleworths, to introduce her. As they say, the rest is history.

These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever.

These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future.

These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other.

These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind.

These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow, and tears of joy.

These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children.

These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one.

These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it.

And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

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.

Sunrise Wedding

In The Forest Wedding Venue, Gauteng

We drove down to a dark area in the free state with a group of friends to look at the stars. The night sky was full of stars and he asked me there under the stars. Seems fitting to have a sunrise wedding – We watch the stars disappear to a beautiful sunrise in a forest just outside Johannesburg busy city lights.

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.

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.

Getting married at the beautiful Kloofzight Hotel and Spa, this couple bearly made it through their wedding without getting on a mountain bicycle.  But not to worry we got to use a super special bicycle in the couple shoot.

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.

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?

Salome & Lou

The beginnings of love, the falling in love part, gives us starry eyes and butterflies in the stomach. It gives us someone, even better than a friend, to dance and dine with, someone to adventure with.

It’s these reasons why we want to write sonnets and sing love songs — and why love makes us do things that other people might even think are a little crazy.
