Studio Portraits

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. We had originally planned to shoot at the Johannesburg Zoo, but Milana’s very careful mum didn’t want to expose her to the cold, so we rescheduled for our studio. 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

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.

Tanveer in Studio

 Tanveer and his family: old favourites.  Actually, my oldest.  They were my very first paying clients when I was a student.  Every year I’m surprised at how much Tanveer has grown, but this year I was completely shocked at how grown up he is.  Usually I cover his birthday parties, this year they did a studio shoot instead.  Tanveer was fascinated by the ‘room with no walls’.  I’m looking forward to covering his… Continue reading

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.
