I feel so honoured to have been a part of little Niara’s birth.

When Mahlo & Cindy got married, I had the privilege of photographing their wedding. And now, fast forward three years, I had the opportunity of documenting Cindy’s pregnancy, the welcoming of their precious little baby girl, and their life-at-home with Niara.

Thank you for trusting me so implicitly in capturing your life’s memories. It is a joy to call you friends, and I look forward to walking this journey with you as parents.

Wedding Photography | Johan & Onica 

Johan and Onica got married on a glorious spring day in September at Makinky Manzi. It was a perfect day to celebrate their love and commitment to one another, with plenty family and friends  Their two precious pooches even got to be a part of the celebration – sweet little Arrow was the ring bearer and did an incredible job 😉 I am always a little sad to wrap up a wedding with a couple after having been in touch with them for months in advance, getting to know them and discussing details of the wedding. But I am so pleased to have been a part of your journey into marriage, Johan and Onica. I wish you nothing but delight in your life as Mr & Mrs Koen, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for the two of you. Follow this link if you’d like to see their engagement session photographs too.

Wedding Photography | Maryam & Taariq

When I met Maryam for the first time, she said her desire for their wedding day was that it was their own creation, where they were able to let their vision of a relaxed ‘picnic’ style wedding come to fruition. It was exactly that – possibly one of the most relaxed weddings I’ve been to, where the focus was on family and celebration of the new life between Maryam & Taariq.

My mandate was to capture many simple moments and experiences throughout the day, rather than overly posed images from the day. I am a realist at heart, and so this was right up my alley, and I loved every minute spent documenting the beautiful wedding of Maryam and Taariq.

Thank you both for trusting me so implicitly in capturing your wedding, and for the way in which you welcomed me into your family.

Wedding Photography | Kira & Josh

I loved every minute of Kira and Josh’s wedding. It was very possibly one of the most laid back weddings I have been to in a while, where nothing seemed rushed, and everything seemed to run so smoothly and according to plan.

Kira got ready at her home in Johannesburg, with an abundance of family and friends helping her get ready. Josh then got to see his GORGEOUS bride for a first peek before the ceremony.

They got married at Andrew Murray Church , followed by the reception at La Vie en Rose, which was a party of note and an absolute celebration of these two.

Josh & Kira, thank you for trusting me with these gorgeous memories of yours. I am so pleased to have been a part of your wedding day. I wish you nothing but delight in your new lives together and as you settle into being husband and wife in the UK.

Birth Story | Baby Kylan

Birth Story | Baby Kylan

There is something so incredible about being present at the birth of a baby – hearing that first cry; witnessing that first breath; experiencing that raw emotion as parents have the first look at their precious little one. It brings back so many memories of the birth of my own children, but at the same time reminding me that every birth is unique and is a completely different story and journey in itself.

Precious little Kylan was born on the 5th of June. He was already so very loved, even before he made his appearance into this world. He had one great granny, two grannies, a granddad and an aunty all waiting with baited breath in the maternity ward for their precious new family member to arrive.

Tarryn and Duncan, I have no doubt that you are the perfect parents to your sweet baby boy, and he is so incredibly lucky to have such an enormous community of love surround him. Thank you for trusting me to walk this journey with you. It was a privilege to be a part of your journey.

Tarryn & Duncan had their maternity session with me a few weeks ago, follow this link to see the blog post.
