Tilly-Mari’s First Shoot

Very shortly after their maternity shoot with big brother Derick, little Tilly-Mari made an appearance.  This is the first of what I hope will be many many more lifestyle portrait sessions with this lovely lady.  She’s just as gorgeous as her mom, and just as easy to work with.  Photography by Leanne Williams.

Expecting Tilly-Mari

Following Liezl and Martin’s amazing Destination Wedding, then their first Pregnancy Shoot and the arrival of Baby Derick, they’re now expecting their second Little!  For her second Maternity Shoot, Liezl wanted to do something that would be fun for Derick, and requested bright, playful colours.  She arranged some kid’s play blocks  and we did the shoot as the sun was setting in the family’s garden. After all of these shoots, Martin has finally been promoted… Continue reading

The (New and Improved) Calitz Family

Little Josh is a dream-come-true for Megan.  She’s been talking about having children from the day we met her, which was just before her Wedding, and her joy shone through beautifully during her Maternity Shoot.  She looks so content and comfortable with Josh, like she’s been doing motherhood for years.  John is often away for his work so he only got to meet his son about a week before this shoot.  It was very… Continue reading

Yolandé ‘s Maternity Photos

Megan and John’s Baby Belly

The Weir-Smiths Welcome Rachel

The best part of being a family photographer is watching the kids grow.  Can’t believe how fast John has grown since his first and second shoots – he is nearly 4 years old now!  The Weir-Smith family recently welcomed their pretty little daughter, Rachel, and booked some studio portraits to remember her at 1-month-new.    It was definitely one of the more challenging studio sessions I’ve shot….Rachel refused to leave her mom’s arms, and John was crazy… Continue reading
