Happy family


"One happy big family." I'm sure we all hear this slogan on many ads on TV. To be part of a family does not happen overnight. You must be born into the family or you married into the family. This specific Worcester based family are definitely one big happy family. You always feel welcome at their house in Worcester and they always busy organizing something to do together as family. If you go a few blog posts back you will see I once did a trash the dress shoots with this Horn family and a maternity and newborn shoot. It's really nice to have clients always come back for your photography services.

Swangerskap foto sessie met Marvin & Leylany.

Om n fotograaf te wees is seker maar een van die lekkerste werke as jy hou daarvan om met mense te werk. Ekt einde 2007 vir die eerste keer oorgeskakel om fotos digitaal te begin neem. Vanaf 1998 tot 2007 het ek al my foto sessies met film gedoen. In September 2008 het ek Marvin & Leylani se troue op Worcester gedoen.
Ek onthou nog dat dit die troue was met van die meeste groep fotos wat ek al gedoen het. Dit was maklik 50 groepfotos wat ek gefotografeer het tydens die fotosessie na die kerk seremonie.
5 Jaar later verwag hulle hul eersteling en het ek toe vir hulle n studio swangerskap foto sessie gedoen vir dit. Die dogtertjie is toe gister oggend vroeg al gebore en ek sien nogals uit daarna om so oor n week die fotos vir hulle ook te neem.


Being a photographer is probably one of the best works if you like to work with people. I switch over from film to digital photography at the end of 2007 for the first time. From 1998 to 2007 everything was taken with film .In September 2008 I did photographed Marvin & Leylani's wedding in Worcester. I remember that it was the wedding the most group photos I've ever done. It was easily 50 group photos that I photographed during the photo shoot after the church ceremony.


5 years later they expecting their first child and here is a few examples of the maternity shoot that I photographed for them in studio. The girl was born early Monday morning and I am looking forward to the new born shoot coming soon.

Swangerskap fotosessie met Darren & Loulia.

Darren & Loulia het my geboek vir hulle swangerskap fotosessie so 'n rukkie terug al. Volgens beplanning sou ek n studio setup vir die fotos in haar salon op Worcester gedoen het, want in die winter tyd weet mens nooit wat die weer gaan doen nie.
Die tyd van die jaar is dit gewoonlik storms buite en koud. Iets in die weer het verander so 2 weke terug op die dag van die swangerskap fotosessie. So 2 ure voor die shoot het Loulia my geskakel en gevra of ons dit nie sommer buitekant kan neem nie want die weer is so mooi. 'n Buitelig fotosessie is altyd n uitdaging as dit in die middel van die dag gedoen word.
As fotograaf het ek die uitdaging aanvaar en ons het n ongelooflike goeie fotosessie gehad.
Darren & Loulia booked me for their pregnancy photo shoot a while ago. In planning I would have a studio setup for the pictures at her salon in Worcester, because in the winter time you never know what the weather will do. This time of year it is usually storms out and cold. Something in the weather has changed on the day of the pregnancy photo shoot.

Two hours before the photo shoot Loulia contacted me and asked if we can do the maternity shoot outside, because the weather is so beautiful. An outdoor photo shoot is always a challenge as it is done in the middle of the day. As an experience photographer, I accepted the challenge and we did have an incredibly good photo shoot.

Family shoot with Eulanda.

another great family photography session
A few weeks back, I had a family photo session with Nicky and her son. Barely a week after this Eulanda booked me for a family photo session with her and her daughter. It is so nice for me as a photographer to do a family photo session and enjoy fun with the family. Eulanda's family photo session was very nice. Mother and daughter are certainly very fond of each other! Here are some pictures from the family photo session.
