Painting in the sky

Painting in the sky

We almost missed out on a beautiful sunset but the clouds made way for the sun to just peek through enough to capture this painting.

Suikerbossie

“Suikerbossie” (“Sugarbush”) is the national flower of South Africa. It’s also a term of endearment that could be translated as “sweetie”.

And today they were the setting for this beautiful family’s photoshoot.

If you can spot this little guy’s name somewhere in the pictures you can definitely order your own special item from his awesome Grand Mother.

Speechless and definitely loved.

My family is awesome. I have a sister and my parents,

a brother in law and a boyfriend.

We love and we laugh together, and sometimes coffee joins the conversation too.

It is actually unusual how we met. We were both on our way home from a night out with friends and we stopped at the Shell garage in centurion for something to eat. I greeted him when I walked back to my car and we just started talking from there. We moved in together 6 months after that and got engaged just over 3 years later. The engagement was very romantic at the Elephant Sanctuary in Hartebeespoortdam – we were interacting with the elephants and one of the elephants gave me the ring and then he went down on one knee and asked me to make him the happiest guy alive by marrying him.

Love is in the air

Love doesn’t make the world go ’round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

These boys are super excited. So special to add a little girl to your family.

Congratulations and GOOD LUCK!

Nothing fancy

Nothing too fancy

Truly a space with magic morning noon and night.

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.

Blue

Blue, always my favourite

It is always special when I can capture families as they grow. Welcome little girl – You are so loved!

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.

On a dusty road

A dusty road

On a dusty road, I found a sweet, little girl playing in the sand with the sun on her back.

She has a heart of gold, doesn’t mind sand in her hair and plays with her new best friend, “Dusty”, side-by-side as the sun sets.

I think she and Dusty stole my heart –  “Ek gaan jou (julle) mis”.

Dear Lucy

I heard I am your favourite. You are my favourite too – but don’t tell the others, I don’t want them to feel bad or miss out on any treats they might want to share with their Golden Boy (Ben).  You looked beautiful.  Sorry for stepping on your dress.  I really just wanted to give you a kiss. I noticed another handsome guy – a bit taller than me, intruding on our photo session. I allowed him to be in some photos just to keep the peace.  Okay okay not true – I was informed he was your date and I am not allowed to join at Velmore Hotel and Spa.  Perhaps next time I will bring you flowers too and get to go out with a gorgeous girl at my side.

Love Ben

(Your Golden Boy aka Golden Retriever)

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.

And we climb a step
Every day it’s you and I
We climb a step
Every day and every night
It’s every time you look at my face
You give me this feeling
Every time you look in my eyes
My heart starts to tumble
Oh I think of you all the time – The Kelly Family
