Family Session | Myoli Beach Sedgefield | Sunset Shoot

Riding on the tail of the swiftly departing summer we managed to squeeze in this photo-shoot with the V family at Myoli Beach before the weather turned too cold. The session was in honour of Grandma's birthday and what a beautiful Grandma she is both inside and out. Watching Mom and Dad kiss is a… Continue reading Family Session | Myoli Beach Sedgefield | Sunset Shoot

Group Family Session | Sedgefield Beach | Messy Beautiful Chaos

Granny had plans for a group photo with wooden blocks that spelled out the family name but things did not go as planned... To begin with, it was a crazy windy day, the family… Continue reading Group Family Session | Sedgefield Beach | Messy Beautiful Chaos

Family Session | Cola Beach Sedgefield | Cloudy Summer Day

“I found that each time a test was negative, it stopped the dreaming and hoping for a while. Taking the test was a way of puncturing the balloons of hope, because if I didn't, they would lift and lift without any evidence, and their falling back down every month was too painful. Essentially, I took… Continue reading Family Session | Cola Beach Sedgefield | Cloudy Summer Day

5 Tips | What to Wear to a Photoshoot | Cola Beach

As a lifestyle photographer, my number 1 focus (inexcusable yet almost unavoidable pun, sorry) when planning any couple, family or pet shoot, is to find the best light. Number 2 is finding ways to capture the love, connection and personality between the beautiful souls in front of my lens, that includes the 4 leggeds. Number… Continue reading 5 Tips | What to Wear to a Photoshoot | Cola Beach

Overcast Light | Family Beach Session | Cola Beach Sedgefield

Mom and I had planned the shoot for weeks, there was a bit of a scare when Miss B broke out in a weird looking rash just before the session, luckily for us, it cleared up. We were hoping for a glorious sunset all orange and pink for the perfect backdrop to this sweet family's… Continue reading Overcast Light | Family Beach Session | Cola Beach Sedgefield

3 Tips – How to Prepare for a Family Session | Buffelsbaai Beach Shoot

Light.  It can make or break a photo session. For outdoor sessions, I like to start photographing early evening about an hour before sunset or early morning (15 minutes before sunrise) in order to take advantage of the best light possible. This time of the day is known as Golden Hour when the light is… Continue reading 3 Tips – How to Prepare for a Family Session | Buffelsbaai Beach Shoot

3 Tips – How to Prepare for a Summer Maternity Shoot

Just a quick heads up, this blog post is a bit of a departure from my normal type of post, mainly because I've been researching SEO techniques and apparently creating relevant content is the thing to do to rank in Google, be discovered by search engines, which in turn helps potential clients and obviously generates… Continue reading 3 Tips – How to Prepare for a Summer Maternity Shoot

Sand & Seawater – family beach shoot

“Each year, we rent a house at the edge of the sea and drive there in the first of the summer—with the dog and cat, the children, and the cook—arriving at a strange place a little before dark. The journey to the sea has its ceremonious excitements, it has gone on for so many years… Continue reading Sand & Seawater – family beach shoot
