Louise Nel - Maternity shoot

I met Louise through a friend on Facebook! I was surprised to see how small she still was although she was close to her due date. Her shoot challenged me with the availability of light inside the house, but got some nice shots in the end.

I love how the light caught her tummy!

A different kind of look - it is almost militaristic, but the clothes she was wearing suited that kind of look. The sky was the most beautiful blue as well. Had to capture that and her tummy!

Skylar - a little busy body

Little Skylar promised Mommy that she will be a good girl and pose for the shoot, but the minute I got there she became a little busy body and we struggled to get her to sit still for even three seconds. She was up and down the jungle gym and I had to improvise to get at least a few shots :-)...

Stephanie & Inge - Senior Shoot (continue...)

Here are the photos of Stephanie and Inge, done at Waterfall Country and Equestrian Estate in Kyalami, Midrand, as promised in their "sneak preview" little more than a week ago. This shoot was already discussed in February but due to all the rain and our busy schedules we only ended up having an open Saturday afternoon two weekends ago. But I couldn't complain about the weather, as it was a beautiful day (I just loved the sky) and everything was still so green at the Waterfall.

I loved editing these photos as the two girls wanted a vintage feeling to their photos and therefore dressed the part too. I also loved the props they brought with - it added to the vintage feeling.

Thanks to the management at Waterfall, Edward and Rob, for allowing us to do the shoot there and believe me when I say the place is awesomely beautiful - from the hotel, to the stunning houses, polo fields, horse stables (where we did the most of the shoot) and entertainment areas. Check out their website at: Waterfall Country & Equestrian Estate.

Inge and Stephanie, thanks for allowing me to be part of your afternoon! You rock and I can just wish you well for the few final year exams which lie ahead!
