Letsema Children’s Christmas Party

Every year Letsema Consulting throws a Christmas Party for their employee’s children and Just One Child. (www.justonechild.co.za) The really real Father Christmas attends, and is so good at getting the kids to smile for photos. (though I personally love the shots where they’re bawling!)

Commissioned through Zoom Photography.  By Leanne Williams.

This one was for her own 60th, and the theme was Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds. “Gideon’s” did a fabulous job with the decor as always.

I’ve uploaded only a few pages of my… Continue reading
