Ek is useless sonder jou
Ek lewe klein en uncomplicated
Die eenvoud is so underrated
As ek naby is aan jou
As ek naby is aan jou
Ons is

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.

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.

There’s nobody in the world that knows me better than my sister.  Being an only child, it is always such a special experience for me when I see siblings enjoying each other. These to girls I met at church and from the start they where just such a pleasure to work with. Gisela was the one that also designed my business logo – and to be able to understand what was going on in my head – she found quite easy.  Two meetings and a few emails and ta-da. My very gorgeous logo – representing exactly the picture I had in my head. Since I cannot draw to save my life except perhaps if I am playing Pictionary – She made it look so effortless. Thanks for sharing your love for design with me Gisela and may your future be filled with many great design adventures.

Wow – What an experience. I am a Cat person, that became a dog person, so I suppose I am now a dog and a cat person. I was a bit nervous at first when the “special guest” joined the couple shoot at Farm Inn. It was just so special to spend some time with this beautiful couple in an equally beautiful setting.  Standing up close seeing this beautiful animal breath is just so unreal.  Not a kitty you want to mess with though.

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.

Nouveau Wedding Venue – Pretoria East

Kobus and Sonja got married on Saturday, 1 July 2017.  A day that is suppose to be in the middle of the winter. But it was perfect, not too cold at all, but just cold enough for a fire.  Close family and friends were there to celebrate with them.  It was meaningful and above all it was joyful. I think it is save to say, if they could, they would do it all over again tomorrow but luckily they have the rest of their lives together.

The day began for both Kobus and Sonja with getting ready at Venue Nouveau, in Pretoria East where it was obvious that this was going to be a fun day for everyone involved!  Sonja was dressed in an exquisite lace dress designed by Werner Day and her make-up was perfected by Melissa Bam.  Friends serenaded them while enjoying champagne and a beautiful cake from The Baking Room.

It could not have been a more beautiful day.

It’s about those invisible moments that connect us with the people we love and it was lovely to be the one to capture those moments for you.

Thank you Kobus and Sonja, for making “The Girl With The Camera” part of your special day!

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.

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.

Pretzel, a crisp biscuit baked in the form of a knot or stick and flavoured with salt. You tied the knot and a better example of sticking together I still need to find.

What Dreams May Come

Super special couple, and super fun. You can see it in their photos. I might have found my match – I never want to stop but I know for my clients’ sake I need to ack away my camera after an hour or two. But not these two – Thanks for being such great sports.
