1950’s Inspired Family Shoot|Johannesburg Family Photographer

I had such an amazing family photo shoot at Pretville in Hartbeespoort, with the awesome Sawyer family, as you can clearly see. Shannon went all out with the styling, and had loads fun with the theme, which was a mix of 1940’s and 50’s vintage style

I absolutely loved spending my day with the lovely twins, Rhys & Teeghan, their stunning mom, Shannon, and their beautiful Nanna, Pam. These two kept me on my toes, but I loved their energy. This one goes done in the books as one of my most favourite family photo shoots, by far!

1950’s Retro Family Photo shoot – Johannesburg Family Photographer

1950's editorial Family shoot

Capturing an unusual family can be a tricky task for even the most seasoned photographer. When you have a bearded tattoo artist, a pin up obsessed writer and their creatively unique 8 year old, you need a photographer with vision. That is exactly what we got when we sat down with Bron to discuss our unusual, family shoot.

You need to understand, we have never had a family shoot done. Not counting the one quick shot captured by the same photographer at our son’s 6th birthday party, two years earlier. So, this was a big deal for us. To make things even more challenging, we are in the process of relocating and hardly get to spend quality time together. So, merging a fun family outing with an interesting shoot was essential. That’s where Bron’s amazing idea came in! Being mildly obsessive about all things bizarrely beautiful, I wanted something that not only captured my little family, but raised questions (and eyebrows) as well. The idea of having a vintage 50’s inspired family shoot in the cemetery hit the nail on the head!

From the get go, I left the concept and shoot ideas to Bron and I handled the wardrobe and makeup bits myself. What she came up with was not only thought provoking, but exceptionally beautiful as well! That is exactly what anyone wants from a photoshoot, thought provoking, mildly creepy but still gorgeous to look at! With the help of Penny who smoothed dresses, fixed suspenders and entertained Riley during intervals, we had an exceptional team! Everything from making sure that my eyelashes stayed put, to coaxing our son into somber poses was covered! Which made it so much fun for us to have our 15 seconds of fame in front of the camera!

The femme fatale meets Dexter dad shots, coupled with our sullen Sheriff made for visually delightful images that we are all so pleased with! Although the shoot was over really quickly (or we were just having too much fun), we have a collection of stunning images to get framed for our new home!

I couldn’t think of a photographer who captured my family better than Bronwyn did. She made us all look so much better than we do in “real” life, and created memories that we can enjoy forever!

Written from my clients perspective, thank you Cashe.

John and Annalisa’s Vintage Themed Maternity Shoot | Johannesburg Maternity Photographer

A 1930’s/40’s inspired maternity photo shoot, done in two parts, the fist half was shared with John and Annalisa’s son, Luca, the second half was just mom and dad. We used Reefsteamers in Germiston to shoot the vintage styled photo shoot, which was perfect for what John and Annalisa had in mind.  I’m really happy with how the shoot turned out, and John and Annalisa LOVE their photos, and the fact that it was a unique maternity photo shoot.

The Wood Family Session – Johannesburg Family Photographer

Nats, Bren and family shoot 062 (Large)Natalie and Brendan are very special clients of mine, whom I adore and truly appreciate. I first met them 3 years ago when they were  expecting Ben, and Nats contacted me to do their maternity shoot and Ben’s newborn shoot, and then again to capture Bennie’s first birthday. A little over a year ago their  family expanded, little Callie was born, and once again I had the  pleasure of capturing this gorgeous family’s precious moments, from Callie’s maternity shoot, to his newborn shoot and then his first birthday. It’s been such an honour to be part of this beautiful family’s life,  to capture their very special moments and to share in their joy.

This is the official Wood family photo shoot in studio, January 2015.

Nihal’s Newborn Photo Shoot, 1 month new | Newborn Photography

Newborn photo shoot at home

This is beautiful baby Nihal.

Nihal was already 1 month old when we did his newborn photos, which is a little older than my usual newborns. In a perfect world, I would do all newborn shoots within the first 10 days of babies life, but of course this isn’t always possible. Older babies tend to become much more aware and interested in their surroundings – especially when I come along, remove clothes and setup big lights in the room. It all becomes very interesting for an older baby, to the point where they have absolutely no interest in sleeping whatsoever! This was definitely the case with little Nihal. We spent a long time waiting for him to settle – during which time i got to look at photos and learn about traditional Indian weddings, whilst drinking coffee and eating delicious Diwali snacks! All in all, it was a morning well spent, and the wait was definitely worth it once sweet Nihal eventually settled. 🙂
