I’ve had such a journey with this family! From newborn and birthday shoots, christening and family portraits to even a wedding. Francois and Corlian moved to Cape Town last year, and we were really sad that I wasn’t there to do baby Marlu’s newborn photos. When I learned that I would be travelling to Cape Town towards the end of last year I phoned Corlian and we booked a family shoot with her dad and brothers. We decided that outdoor portraits at Silvermine Nature Reserve would be beautiful. I won’t lie to you (because it’s clear from Cayli’s goosebumps and Marlu’s blue lips) – it was freezing! At one stage everyone crammed into Sebastien’s Beetle to warm up! But we had a good time and afterwards they invited me to dinner.
Goosen and Davel family – I genuinely do not have the words to express how much I appreciate your support and friendship. Thank you for always trusting me with your fondest memories, for cheering me on and making me feel like a superstar photographer. Thank you for your generosity! (Guys, these people let me borrow their car for an entire week while I worked in Cape Town and gave me a place to sleep on the last night of my visit. Have you ever heard of clients embracing and supporting someone like this?!)
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
