Family Photoshoot – Mocke Family

It is always a joy for me to take photos of families. This family was no exception. Big thanks for entrusting me with your family photos.


The photo shoot took place at Noordhoek Common. I always try to capture moments on my camera that will be treasured for years to come.


The extra special touch was having granny and granddad join for the photos.

“Few things are more delightful than grandchildren fighting over your lap.” “When grandparents enter the door, discipline flies out the window.” “There are fathers who do not love their children; there is no grandfather who does not adore his grandson.” “Sometimes our grandmas and grandpas are like grand-angels.”

Family Photo Shoot

I was approached by Kara to do a little Photoshoot of her and her gorgeous family.


On Saturday the weather was picture perfect without a breath of wind! What a special family and precious little boy! Thank you for all your patience with me!


It was such an honour for me to be entrusted to take photos for you all Kara. I hope that the photos will bring you much joy as you look back one day and remember!


Today’s little moments become tomorrow’s precious memories!

Family Photo Shoot in Constantia

When Meagan contacted me to do a  Family Photo Shoot for her and her family, I was super excited.


Upon meeting her and the family, I felt an immediate connection. It was such a beautiful day and the flowers were in bloom.


Thank you for entrusting me with your family Meagan, what a joy and honor to spend the morning with you, Rick and Joshua. I hope you get to treasure the images of the day – that the memory of these photos will live in your heart forever.


Tomorrow they will be a bit older than they were today – today is a gift, just breathe, notice their little faces, their little feet, pay attention, relish the charm, it will be over before you know it.

Family Photo Shoot in Constantia

Jessica arranged for me to take photos of her mother with her grandchildren while she was visiting Cape Town.  What a lovely family!

It was also such a pleasure to have her brother and his children from California join in for the Photo Shoot.

Jessica unfortunately could not join in, as she was overseas at the time. What a wonderful time we had in a lovely setting in the leafy suburb of Constantia.

Just a little glimpse into the life of this lovely family, captured in pictures to treasure!

Family Photo Shoot – ‘The Bees’

It was such a delight to take some photos of this beautiful family! I will always have fond memories of this day.

What made it extra special was seeing granny with all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

 ‘Love is like a tree, it grows of its own accord, it puts down deep roots into our whole being’

To see and feel the love shared among family is one of God’s richest and most treasured blessings.

Family Photo Shoot with Lexi & family

It was a beautiful warm sunny day for a family shoot – this time it was with Lexi and her gorgeous little boy and Shaun.

A very special moment was shared with me, Lexi told me that her mom died and her favourite flower was a lily – so upon her request we took some photos with the beautiful white arum lillies growing on the Common.

My heart melted just thinking about family and how important they are to me.

May God guide your path Lexi and may you find true happiness.

Family is like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions yet our roots remains as one.

Family Photo Shoot with Georgie & Family

A while back Georgie contacted me to do a Family Photo Shoot for her and the gorgeous family.

We met at Noordhoek Common, which is home to the family, as they have a business close by and live just down the road.

What an absolute joy this day was for us! The unity and love shared among them was something that touched our hearts.


You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.  Desmond Tutu

Family Photo Shoot

It was a warm Sunday afternoon when we met Henobi and her lovely family at Noordhoek Common.

I am always so happy to do these photo shoots when grandparents can join in. Henobis’ Father was such a sport despite not being in the best of health.

Christi & Family Photo Shoot

We have walked a journey with Christi and her family – we had a fun shoot with them at Noordhoek Common last year as well as a maternity shoot a bit later.


Then recently Christi approached us to do a beach shoot in kommetjie. So we managed to have a beautiful day in the lovely little village of Kommetjie! We took photos down by the Lighthouse, which is a popular spot for families to gather and enjoy the scenery.


It was wonderful to see how this family has grown in more ways than one. Big thank you Christi for choosing us to be your photographers.


Our prayer for you is that you celebrate life to the fullest and that God may grant you many happy, joyful and peaceful times together as a family!


Also special thanks to my assistant Mikki.
