Blessed, excited & loved

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.

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, 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.

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”.

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: 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

Mom – A Celebration of life

A Celebration of life

No matter how old you get, sometimes, you still just need a hug from mom to make everything better.

I have gotten to know a part of this family over the years. First studying with Salome and then taking their wedding photos.  Even with rain clouds looming in the background we had just enough time to have some fun at the Pretoria Country Club.  No Golf was played during the photo shoot (This time).

The story of two Penguins #dirkenmicheletrou

Sticks and stones aren’t for breaking bones, if you’re a penguin. They’re symbols of love. Sticks adorn the nests where they raise their children, and stones serve as heartfelt gifts from one bird to another.

Pretoria, De Haven Oost

Today we celebrate love.

We first met at school, we were in the same art class. One day in October 2015 we decided to go for a picnic at the botanical gardens. It was a nice and warm day. We walked around for about 30mins to get the perfect spot under the trees. Unfortunately, or should I say fortunately for Julian, there were geese roaming around there. Now I am terrified of big birds, but we set up our picnic blanket anyway. I was keeping an eye on these geese as I did not trust them. Julian said to me: “ I think you need to stand up, just to be safe please stand up” He also started getting up and then I was ready to start running. But then I saw him on his one knee, shaking from the nerves, taking my one hand and saying the most beautiful words. We were both shaking. I said YES!! to this awesome man in front of me.

Engagement photo shoot – 012 Central

A city is distinguished from other human settlements by its relatively great size, but also by its functions and its special symbolic status. Pretoria CBD a gem I need to explore more often. Great architecture surrounded us as well as a surprising joyous vibe that followed us as we changed locations during the photo shoot.  Overlooking the Pretoria State theatre from a nearby building rooftop we could catch the last of the soft winter sunlight before the surrounding high-rises buildings were the only sight left on the horizon.  The capital’s hustle and bustle made up by locals jamming on the street corner in front of the State Theater’s entrance and the famous Taxi drivers hooting their way true late afternoon traffic.

“If you think dogs can’t count, put three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them.”

Puppy Raisers are very special volunteers who take a puppy into their homes, lives and hearts for 11 to 18 months and then, just when that mischievous puppy has developed into a well behaved and mature dog, they give them back!  Many of them then start all over again with a new puppy!  This is a volunteer program by the Guide Dog Association of South Africa. 

While the puppy is with the Puppy Raisers, they are socialised as much as possible.  It is very important that the dogs are introduced to as wide a range of experiences, places, people and animals as possible.

If you have any queries regarding the Puppy Raising Scheme, please contact one of the Puppy Raising Supervisors :

Gauteng, Die Akker

A perfect day for a cup of coffee and a wedding.  Being a bit of a coffee snob myself, I share the lovely moments one share with your mug in the morning as you take that first sip of coffee.  Coffee in the one hand and engagement ring in the other, this guy made sure that he would get the right answer as he proposed to his girl: “Are you sure that you want to marry me ?” “Of course I am sure,why ? ” she asked. Well if you are sure, you may have this he said…..

Then she opened a small box with THAT ring inside.

And as they say the rest is history.  The girl never left his side ever since.
