The Kotzes Add An Adam

The Kotze Family have welcomed little Adam! We did Tilly-Marie’s newborn photos in the same room a few short years ago, and I can’t believe how much she and Derick have grown up already.

Grumpy Calitz Guys and Their Girls

Remember Megan and John?  We have had the privilege of creating their wedding photos, pregnancy pics and newborn portraits.  Megan is also one of our much loved, highly creative, fun assistants.  Her Little, Josh, has just turned two years old, and she wanted some updated family photographs at their home.  Two is not my favourite age for portraits, so we suggested shooting candids of his birthday party in addition to posed portraits…to be safe.… Continue reading

Little Levi and His Parents

ECSA Ladies Breakfast

The exquisite La Vie En Rose in Illovo provided a really beautiful location and absolutely delicious coffees, teas, and gourmet breakfast.  Start up company Nialieze was there to display and sell their unique costume jewelry to the lady engineers.  I treated myself to one of their necklaces which I now wear to almost every wedding – love it!   The ladies were also… Continue reading
