Carrie and Fury at Imhoff Farm

The sun peeked through the clouds, despite  the cold weather on Monday. As I headed off to Imhoff’s Gift to do a photo shoot for Carrie and her gorgeous horse, Fury, I felt a little nervous at the thought of coming face to face with a horse – see, this would be my first  ‘up close and personal’ experience with a horse.

It was such a treat to watch Carrie and Fury – I felt as if I was watching secrets being shared between horse and rider that only they were privy too. Carrie has such a great love for horses and it was written all over her face – in her mannerisms,  her patience, kindness, love and care was visible in all her movements and Fury lapped it up.

Thank you Carrie, for a delightful afternoon. Not only did I enjoy every minute of the photo shoot, but it gave me courage to face my own fear and overcome it.

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk. He trots the air, the earth sings when he touches it.

Derek – brother to Ella Jane

Thank you to mom Nicole for the opportunity to take photos of her little prince. It was so easy, as Derek is a natural.

God made a world out of his dreams,
Of wondrous mountains, oceans and streams,
Prairies and plains and wooded land,
Then paused and thought,
“I need someone to stand on top of the mountains
To conquer the seas, explore the plains and
Climb the trees, someone to start small and grow,
Sturdy, strong like a tree.” and so…
He created boys, full of spirit and fun,
To explore and conquer, to romp and run,
With dirty faces, banged up chins
With courageous hearts and boyish grins.
When He had completed the task He’d begun,
He surely said, “That’s a job well done.”

Baby Ella Jane

What a lovely morning was spent taking photos of this cute little one! Big thank you to mommy Nicole, for the wonderful privilege and delight!

 

May Ella Jane be a blessing in your life
A little girl will always hold our hearts 
A gift bestowed upon you from Creator God
May He guide and lead you all her days and keep her safe in His loving care!

Levi turns 1

A while back I had the opportunity to take photos at Levi’s first birthday party. It was such a great time – the family were so welcoming and hospitable to myself and my assistant, Mikki. We just went with the flow and enjoyed taking photos with the children and family, as well as the extended family. It was so lovely to see the grandparents enjoying the party with the children.  Grandad played soccer outside with the kids and it was a real joy to see the warm and sincere faces around us. What a lovely family – big thank you to Claudia and the David’s family for this wonderful evening! The photos tell the story! Thank you for visiting my website and taking the time to read my blog.

Johnny, Denise and Olivia

I feel truly blessed as I share this. Denise and Johnny were introduced to me through a close friend of theirs and I was truly honoured to share this wonderful journey with them. From the baby shower in their home, to a maternity shoot at Noordhoek Common and this past Saturday to welcome little Olivia home.

I want to share their  story through a photo collection. Johnny and Denise shine with their love for one another and it was beautiful to witness their joy and love for little Olivia.  I want to wish them every happiness, as they share in all her milestones. Enjoy every moment of her precious life. Thank you, for welcoming me into your lives and making it such fun to work with you. Big thank you to Anahi, who made it all possible. Many blessings!
