I’ve known this family almost as long as I’ve been a photographer! Leona and I met 14 years ago when we both still lived in Tzaneen and volunteered at a charity. Two years later I met the rest of her family when she booked me for her youngest son’s matric farewell. Although we were out of touch for a couple of years while we lived in different towns, we connected again over the past two years since my family and I moved to Gauteng. I love documenting so many of their memories – it makes me feel like a part of the family!
Leona and Christo created such a welcoming and warm home. One of the things that really stood out for me when we visited them for this shoot was how much they adore their grandchildren and how much effort they put into making their home a fun space for their grandchildren.
Thank you Harms family for inviting me and my camera into your lives. I love you!
