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.

The Henson Family Photo Session – Johannesburg Family Photographer

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of doing a family photo session for The Henson Family, Melissa, Mark, Shay and Tayla, and this time Granny Jeni joined in. The kids have grown so much, but I guess that’s what they do every year. Tayla is just too beautiful and Shay is such a sweet little man that adores his sister, actually they adore each other, you can see they have a strong bond, its super special to see, I hope they never lose sight of how special that bond truly is.

What a fabulous day, we did the photo session at Delta Park in Johannesburg, one of my favourite venues, to use for family shoots, or any shoot actually, because of the many different spaces that one can use from veld, to forest, to open fields, to a Graffiti wall,and I’m so pleased that the cosmos was still in bloom, the kids had a blast with the all the pretty flowers and oh so perfect for little girls, we got some stunning pics of Taylor amongst the cosmos.  Granny Jeni joined in for a few photos especially the shots with the kids, there is also such a precious bond between Gran and the kids, so Jen had to just be  there.

Taylor and Shay were so well behaved, I was so impressed, which made my job a breeze and the session a joy. thanks to the Henson family for yet another stunning family photo session. Until next time. I hope you enjoy the photo’s from your session.
