As a pet lover and believer that our furbabies are really part of our family, it was truly wonderful to meet the Delport Family. They explained to me that their family consisted of 6 kids, all of them with fur, and as they work closely with some of the animal rescue associations, a few of the babies were rescues.
They really wanted a great family portrait, and anyone who has pets will know, this is almost impossible with animals. So off we went on a gloomy and wet afternoon, to the park the dogs love to play in, and while they worked off some excess energy and got to know me, I managed to get some fun portraits of each of them.
The afternoon was filled with loads of doggie treats, squeaky toys and slobber, but the dogs had loads of fun. When it came to the portrait, the challenge was keeping them all together as all they wanted to do was to chase the birds and smell all the delicious smells in the park. We eventually got a few great ones of the whole family, including one in the dogs favourite place .... the car!
This family stole a huge part of my heart, here is a peak at the family shoot featuring: Zanzibar, Llama, Alpaca, Guanaco, Fats and Montenegro.
Thank you to this amazing family for allowing me to create these memories for you ... the best was playing with your pups, especially Alpaca who is very shy but came out of her shell and wanted me to throw her ball for her the whole afternoon.
What happens when a beautiful girl falls and gets injured on top of a koppie and a young man helps her to the hospital? True love! Thats how Chane "fell" for Japie and their love story started.
Having met Chane at an expo, we already had spoken a lot but it was our first time meeting Japie at the Pretoria Botanical Gardens for their E-shoot. He was really nervous, and like most men, not a fan of being on camera. He started relaxing and getting into it especially as he got to kiss his bride to be a lot!
Its hard not to love these two ... they are so down to earth, and so genuine and we enjoyed every minute we spent with them.
Here is a peak at the gorgeous Chane & Japie's Couple Shoot:
Chane and Japie, it was an honour to be part of your big day, I wish you many more years of love and happiness!
Last year I got to meet the cutest puppy, Dixie and her beautiful mom Madaleen. The bond between these two is the most beautiful thing ever and it was so awesome to do a photo-shoot with them.
We met in PTA on a wet and miserable morning in the park by Madaleens work. It was really pretty but much to Dixie's delight, there were loads of muddy puddles and a lot of birds to chase. This energetic little Schnauzer had us running up and down the park trying to get some nice photos, and thank goodness Madaleen brought a towel to dry her as she ended up really wet and muddy!
Thank you to Madaleen and Dixie for entrusting me with your memories, I really loved photographing this gorgeous little furbaby! Here is a peak at the beautiful shoot I did for them

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!
