Families

Alec and Daniel | Somerset West Kids Photographer

I was lucky enough to spend some time with this cute pair at Vergelegen Wine Estate for their first family shoot. The twins are 15 months old and adorable! They seemed a little suspicious at first – with all the sudden attention on them and everyone trying so hard to entertain them – it was quite amusing to watch their expressions. By the end of the shoot they were relaxed, running around and having a fun time :)

Here are a few of my favourites. There are a few more in a Facebook album.

Die Botha Gesin | Somerset West Family Photographer

Ek het die Botha’s en hulle oulike klein mannetjies op Valentynsdag by Lourensford ontmoet. Dit was ‘n verskriklike warm dag – die begin van ‘n lekker ou Kaapse hittegolf, maar gelukkig kon die baie skaduwee op die plaas bietjie lafenis bied.

Dit was ‘n heerlike middag saam met hulle – ons het selfs tyd gehad om bietjie vonkelwyn weg te sluk – en die kinders kon hulself wees in die lekker oop ruimte.

Hier is ‘n paar van my gunstelinge – daar is ook ‘n paar ekstra in ‘n Facebook album.

Die Erasmus Gesin | Somerset West Family Photographer

Die Erasmus gesin is nog ‘n pragtige babadogtertjie ryker en ek was gelukkig genoeg om Linja te ontmoet toe sy net 6 dae oud was. Sy was rustig en ontspanne en ons het selfs ‘n draai met haar op Gordonsbaai se strand gemaak! Haar ouer sussie, Carli, is ‘n regte pop en alhoewel sy besluit het dat ‘n kamera ‘n baie onvriendelike ding is, kon ek ‘n paar natuurlike foto’s van haar op die strand kry.

Daar is ook ‘n paar ekstra foto’s in ‘n Facebook album.

Cousins in the Park | Somerset West Photographer

Victoria contacted me to organise a shoot for their extended family, so I met her, her sister and her parents, together with husbands and children at a park near their home. It was a lot of fun watching the little ones play and interact with each other.

Mia | Stellenbosch Baby Photographer

I met Mia and her family at the Botanical Gardens in Stellenbosch. She is just the cutest little thing and loved being photographed on her own, laughing and clapping her hands for our entertainment!

The Collins Family | Somerset West Family Photographer

Lyall and I have been trying to set up this photoshoot for months, but everytime the planned day arrived, it was either pouring with rain, ice cold or very windy. We could hardly believe it when we finally arrived at the Helderberg Nature Reserve on a beautiful, sunny and windless day and nothing stopped us from going ahead! The children were absolute stars and so easy to work with. I love their photos so much that it was quite difficult to choose only a few for this post. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

I’ve also added a few extra images to a Facebook album.

 


Die Herselman Gesin | Somerset West Photographer

Ek ken hierdie oulike mense al ‘n hele paar jaar en het hulle ontmoet toe Luzanne swanger was met haar tweede seuntjie. Nou is Luzanne weer swanger en hierdie keer is dit ‘n klein pienke wat haar opwagting gaan maak! Ek het hulle by die asemrowende Lourensford wynplaas ontmoet. Luzanne lyk absoluut pragtig en mens kan sien dat dit ‘n baie gelukkige klein dogtertjie gaan wees om in so liefdevolle en spesiale gesin ontvang te word. Dit was maar moeilik om net ‘n paar foto’s van sulke fotogeniese mense te kies, maar hier is ‘n paar van my gunstelinge.

 


Ilse, Sune en Menandie | Stellenbosch Photographer

Ek het vir Ilse en haar gesin ontmoet met Sune, hul oudste dogtertjie, se doop. Van toe af was ek gelukkig genoeg om ‘n paar keer weer gevra te word om hulle af te neem. Die gesin het intussen Vrystaat toe verhuis, maar het onlangs in Stellenbosch kom kuier waar ek hulle weer ontmoet het. Hier is ‘n paar van my gunstelinge:


Die Smit Gesin | Somerset West Baby Photographer

Ek het die Smitte twee jaar gelede laas gesien net nadat hul oudste, Sameul, gebore is. Nou is hulle die trotse ouers van ‘n tweede seuntjie en ek was gelukkig genoeg om hom ook te ontmoet. ‘n Heel ander patroontjie as sy boetie, was hy baie geduldig met my, maar het ‘n paar keer vir my probeer vertel wie eintlik die baas is.

Klein Sameul het heel oggend opgewonde gesels en was in en uit die kamer – ongelukkig het hy sy ken oopgeval terwyl ek besig was met Simeon en moes hul inderhaas hospitaal toe vir steke! Arme klein mannetjie – ek hoop hy voel sommer stukke beter x

 

 


Die Mouton Gesin | Somerset West Family Photographer

Ek het hierdie vriendelike en energieke gesin by die Helderberg Natuurtuin tydens die wintervakansie ontmoet. Ons was gelukkig om ‘n heerlike sonnige dag te hê, al was die gras ‘n bietjie nat!

Hier is ‘n paar foto’s van die oggend.


Drie Nelle en nog een op pad | Stellenbosch Maternity Photographer

Ek het die Nel gesin laas op Sune se eerste verjaardag afgeneem. Sune was toe nog versigtig vir my en nie lus vir glimlaggies uitdeel vir die kamera nie, maar hierdie keer was ‘n heel ander storie! Dis so lekker om dieselfde kind keer op keer af te neem en te sien hoe julle ontwikkel en gegroei het. Sy is nou ‘n regte klein dogtertjie, vol stories en wyshede. Haar ma verwag haar babasussie en ons het ontmoet om die groeiende gesin nog een keer vas te vang terwyl hulle nog net drie (en ‘n half!) is.

Daar is ook ‘n paar ekstra foto’s in ‘n Facebook album.


Wonderlike familie by Vergelegen | Somerset West Family Photographer

Cherise het my ‘n paar weke gelede gebel om ‘n familiesessie vir haar ouers en al hul kinders te reël. Dis altyd lekker om ‘n groot familie af te neem en al die verskillende interaksies en warm verhoudings waar te neem. Hierdie is wonderlike, vriendelike en liefdevolle mense en dit was ‘n groot voorreg om die tydjie saam met hulle te spandeer.

Hier is ‘n paar hoogtepunte van die middag.


The Pieber Family | Somerset West Family Photographer

I took the Pieber Family’s end of year photos at the Lourens River on a supremely windy day. It’s no small wonder that the poor kids did not completely blow away, but they were very game to brave the weather and schlep after me to find the perfect spot :) I met both Ethan and Alexander when they were just tiny babies and I love doing follow-up shoot to see how they have grown and developed.

Here are a few images of the afternoon – as always, there are some more images in a Facebook album.


Olivia en Familie | Somerset West Family Photographer

Ek het hierdie lieflike groep mense by die pragtige Vergelegen ontmoet vir hulle fotosessie. Klein Olivia was ‘n absolute ster voor die kamera en die oulikste klein ou dingetjie – weereens net ‘n plesier om saam met hulle te werk!

Hier is ‘n paar gunstelinge van die oggend – daar is ook ‘n paar ekstra foto’s in ‘n Facebook album.

 


Die Greylings | Stellenbosch Family Photographer

Ek het die Greylings vroeg op ‘n yskoue Saterdagoggend by hulle huis net buite Stellenbosch ontmoet.  Ons het so bietjie in en om die huis gespeel en toe besluit om ‘n entjie in die straat af tot by Dornier te ry. Ons was eintlik agter ‘n bietjie son aan en Dornier is boonop so asemrowend mooi!

Hulle twee-jarige dogtertjie is ‘n bondeltjie energie en ‘n regte klein patroon! Hier is ‘n paar foto’s van ‘n heerlike oggend.

Soos gewoonlik, is daar ook ‘n paar ekstra foto’s in ‘n Facebook album.


Twins! | Somerset West Photographer

I met these adorable twin boys and their parents at Erinvale Estate in Somerset West. They had just woken up when I first laid eyes on them and were very grumpy, but fortunately they soon warmed up. I am always excited at the prospect of photographing twins! It’s just a special kind of sweetness to see two small children that look almost identical. I had an absolute blast with these two and at one point, was very tempted to put my camera down and just cuddle and play with them!

I usually prefer black and white images, but the colours in these are really beautiful and I loved their different coloured check shirts so much, that I left most of them in colour for this post.

There are also a few more in a Facebook album.

Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I did taking them!

 


Visagie Gesin Deel 2 | Stellenbosch Family Photographer

Ek het die Visagies oorspronklik in April al afgeneem. Terwyl ek daai tyd besig was om hulle foto’s te “edit”, het ek tot my skok agtergekom dat die foto’s op een memory card (ek het twee gebruik), weg is. Gelukkig was die meerderheid van die foto’s nog daar, maar ek was steeds baie stert tussen die bene oor so ‘n aaklige “mishap”. Om op te maak daarvoor, het ek hulle vroeg in Julie by Blaauwklippen ontmoet vir nog ‘n paar foto’s.

Dankie vir julle geduld en bereidwilligheid om weer te ry vir ‘n sessie!

 


Introducing Alexander | Somerset West Baby Photographer

I first met this family when Ethan was only three weeks old. Ethan now has a very cute little baby brother, called Alexander. Both boys were not entirely convinced that a photo shoot on a cold winters day was a very good idea – but if you know me, you’ll know that I’m not easily put off by reluctant little ones!

Ethan has the most gorgeous big blue eyes and it’s already evident that Alexander is just as handsome as his brother. What a treat to see and photograph this growing family again!

 


Die Visagie Gesin | Cape Town Family Photographer

Ek het Tania in my universiteitsdae ontmoet – ons was in dieselfde koshuis en ek was haar groot vriendin se “koshuisma”. Dit was so lekker om haar weer na al die jare te sien en om haar pragtige gesin te ontmoet!


Die Swanepoel Gesin (saam met Mariet en Mila) | Somerset West Photographer

Ek het Riane en haar pragtige gesin sommer een weeksmiddag by Radloff Park ontmoet vir hulle gesinsfoto’s. Haar skoonsuster, Mariet en klein Mila en saamgekom vir die geleentheid. Wat ‘n mooi klompie kinders is hulle nie! Christo was nie heeltemal oortuig dat hierdie fotonemery vir hom lekker is nie, maar ‘n bietjie balgooi en ‘n paar paaseiers en alles was darem nie verlore nie.

Daar is ook ‘n paar ekstra foto’s in ‘n Facebook album.


Lucas, Erna, Lisa en Luke | Stellenbosch Photographer

Ek het Erna en haar gesin een Sondagoggend by die Helderberg Natuurreservaat ontmoet vir ons fotosessie. Klein Luke was nie baie lus om stil te sit vir hierdie besigheid nie, maar speel-speel het ons wel die ding gedoen gekry.

Hier is solank ‘n voorsmakie – daar is ook nog meer in ‘n Facebook album.

Geniet julle foto’s!


Erne and family | Stellenbosch Family Photographer

I met Erne on the wine estate where they live just outside of Stellenbosch. On the day of the shoot, she was less than a week away from giving birth to her second child – doesn’t she look beautiful? Her sweet little boy, Stian, was a real star and very enthusiatically played along. I can’t wait to meet their little girl!



The Beart Family | Stellenbosch Photographer

I met the Beart’s at their home in the Winelands and enjoyed an hour of fun and laughter with them. They were so relaxed, friendly and fun-loving, that it made my job even more enjoyable than usual!


Julie’s Extended Family | Stellenbosch Photographer

A few hours after I did Julie’s family shoot, we met up again – this time at her mom’s house at De Zalze. It was the first time in years that the whole family managed to get together, so family photos were definitely in order! I arrived just as they were finishing their Sunday lunch and everyone was jolly and relaxed – and with 8 children all under the age of 5, relaxed was just the way I wanted it! We decided to take all the pics at the house, as it would have been a huge mission to get all 19 people to a different location – especially after that lovely lunch :)
