Studio Portraits

Liezl’s Baby Belly

Liezl and Martin’s wedding was exactly 10 months ago.  Martin didn’t waste any time!  Liezl asked me for a handful of very specific maternity photos, so we started in studio and then headed for a nearby park for sunset.   Little Derick Simon should make his appearance in a week or two.  By Leanne Williams.

The Vermeulen Family

A family of 16, including a 16-month-old, a 23-month-old, a 3 year old and an 88-year-old, in our little studio in Sharonlea.  A scary and fun challenge for me!  Four generations in one family photograph is such a treasure.  By Leanne Williams.

The Mes Family’s Pawtraits


Candice and JJ, proud parents of Shnauzers Pippin and Frodo, are celebrating their 7 year anniversary and booked a studio pawtrait shoot to commemorate the occasion.  Candice and the two fur kids were treated to a morning of professional preening for the shoot, and everyone wore shades of blue.  The dogs had fun playing with the resident laboradors of our studio, but Frodo did NOT enjoy the Christmas outfits.  Photography by Leanne Williams.  



Megan wanted some quick and simple portraits for internet use.  I suggested a studio package for flattering light and to allow for outfit changes.  Megan treated herself to some fabulous, natural make-up by Stylicious Divas.  She knew exactly what kind of images and poses she wanted so she was a pleasure to shoot.  Hope she loves them!  By Leanne Williams.

Little Milana and Her Family

7 month old Milana and her parents are visiting from the UK, so they wanted some photos their South African family.

I think Milana’s busy uncles were a bit too much for her – She just wouldn’t pose nicely with them, though I still love the shots with her crying. But… Continue reading

John, the Little Bee

Neil and Ali have been collecting nappies and toys for years in anticipation of their newborn son, John – the first of two planned children. Very organized!   They dressed this lil cutie up in his bee-outfit for his very first photo-shoot.  We rented our favourite studio for small shoots in Sharonlea.  I played around with desaturation to compliment dad’s Metallica shirt and guitar, and mom’s love of speed-metal.  My favourite shot is the one of John… Continue reading
