I had the wonderful opportunity to share in a very special event, Miss Alessandra’s First Holy Communion. It is a very important occasion for Catholic families, signifying a rite of passage into the body of the church
This represents an extremely important milestone. Having reached the appropriate age and spiritual maturity to accept the Holy Sacrament, a girl’s first Communion is a public declaration of her Catholic faith.
Albertus and Estelle are soon to be wed at Greensleeves, a Medieval union to be treasured forever. A day promised to be full of rollicking fun, singing, dancing and dining with a full Medieval Banquet. Not to mention an audience participation with the Baron and his Troubadours. It is gauranteed to be a night never to forget.
We recently got together for a wedding pre-shoot as part of a way to get rid of some of those pre-wedding nerves and any camera shyness. Well they clearly proved that as can be seen in these fantastic pictures we captured.
As part of the “Pay it Forward concept” I was requested to capture some family moments of Albert, Joey and little Lea… Nothing unusual other than the fact that they are both extremely talented photographers in their own right…No Pressure!
We as Photographers seldom have the opportunity to have our family portraits captured, this is when the “Pay if Forward” concept was born. The concept is a simple one, Photographers all take the opportunity to photograph one anothers families and the results speak for themselves!!! Professional portraits of professional Photographers!!!
Thank you Albert and Joey the privilege was all mine!
During a recent Photographers get together at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens I was able to entice one of the couples Johani and Francois to do a Trash The Dress shoot in the icy waters below the waterfall.
They were incredibly brave to step into the freezing cold water, and it wasn’t long before they started turning blue. Bravo Johani and Francois judging by the shots below it was well worth it!
Proud parents Tracy and Timothy are blessed with the arrival of their gorgeous daughter Keira. Although the strong willed cutie pie refused to fall asleep during most of the shoot, we still managed to capture some stunning images of her.
One thing that stood out for me was just how amazing Timothy was. The doting dad treated the mother of his child and his daughter with such delicate care during the entire shoot. It was an incredible bond to witness.
