Studio Portraits

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

Jenny’s Birthday Shoot

Photography by the fabulous Dee-Ann Kaaijk, who kindly did the shooting so that we could be in front of the lens for a change. Jen is my mom-in-law, Sean’s mom. She’s a dog lover, as are we.

Puppy Love

On Valentine’s Day, Kevin surprised Robyn with a photoshoot for their newest members of the family, Hansa and Reeva.  The pups played for the first ten minutes, racing around the studio while we chased after them with the lights! Then the fur kids cuddled with their parents a little, before passing out ever so sweetly. Such a nice idea for a Valentine’s prezzie.  By Leanne Williams.

Richard & Lara’s Preggie-Pics

So, as some of our cyber-stalkers know, we freelance for various photographic agencies to compliment our Snapdragon work.  Which means we have many, for lack of a better word, “bosses”.  Richard is one such boss.  So, knowing how fun he can be, and how gorgeous his wife is, I decided to give them a gift voucher for some preggie-pics, as a Christmas present and a thank-you for all the work he sends us (I know I know,… Continue reading
