Sally and her mom were both diagnosed with Breast Cancer at the same time, and while going through treatment, her dad looked after them both. For those who know what it is like having a loved one going through Chemo, you will understand how much of a strain it put on Mr Roberts, but he loved his ladies so much he sacrificed a lot to help them.
It was also during this time that Sally met Noel, the love of her life, and he also helped these beautiful women deal with the many treatments and Doctors appointments they needed to go to.
Sadly Sally passed away late last year, but before she did she embraced life. She traveled, did things she had always wanted to do and really loved every minute. This post may seem sad, but to me its not. Its a loving memory of a beautiful lady who touched my life in a big way in the short time that I knew her. Its a celebration of her life, and her beautiful family who I admire, respect and love a lot.
Here is a peak at a few of the fun photos we did of this amazing family ...
In loving memory of Sally Roberts, a beautiful woman in every way, your story touched many lives in such a good way. Gone but not forgotten.
One of the most amazing couples I know, Carrie and Greg, got married in December at the beautiful Morrells in Northcliff. Their theme was vintage French and it definitely had the wow factor! The shabby chic decor included a variety of flowers, little perfume bottles, silver teapots and bird cages with little birds. The little details along with the fabulous venue suited this classy couple so well with its simple elegance.
When I first met them, Carrie explained that the little birds that were incoporated in the decor were a tribute to her Mom who would be watching over them from heaven during the day. I am pretty sure that this little touch, along with the amazing lady that Carrie is, made her mom proud and smile down at the beautiful couple.
Carrie looked magnificent in her vintage inspired gown from De La Vida Gowns, she took her handsome grooms breathe away as she walked down the aisle. The day was perfect in every way for this lovely couple, even the weather played along with us, as the huge thunderstorm that threatened all day only hit when every one was inside the reception enjoying the delicious cocktail dinner.
A big shout out goes to all the suppliers (listed below) for making Carrie and Greg's Wedding day so perfect. Another big thank you goes to my amazing second photographer Sherrie for all of her hard work in assisting me.
To Carrie and Greg, my ginger couple, you guys are fabulous and I just love you! I am so lucky to have met you and to have shared your day with you. Its awesome to count you as friends, and I wish you both huge success in your careers and a very happy and long life together.

It is pretty rare to see a cactus flower, especially as they only flower once a year and for one day only. So I was super excited to see one of our cacti had 2 buds on it! I started watching the plant every morning to ensure I got at least one photo of the flowers, and low and behold, one morning I got up and both buds had opened on the same day! I rushed off in my PJ's and slippers to get my camera and managed to get a few awesome photos of this rare occurance!
Here is a peak at the beautiful flowers that appeared one morning and was gone the next!
Quirky and often described as rather eccentric, I am a lover of all things beautiful. Capturing special moments and making my clients look and feel beautiful is what makes me happy!
