My sister is the luckiest person on earth. She gets to have me as a brother! What's even better is I get to capture how her family grows! With the new addition of a little girl to her house, I was there to help welcome her and Michael's newest little light in the lives.
I guess in truth I am the lucky one here to be the uncle to two beautiful kids and to be able to see them grow up as two very happy children! Well done sis and the honorable BIL.

Ruan and Tammy have become regulars in front of my camera. With Ruan himself being a talented photographer, it is a privilege being a photographer's photographer. This time round it was an honour to help welcome his new baby into the world. Tammy and Ruan make a great parent team and their new family member is going to be a spoiled addition to their already loving family.
Their beautiful home provided the perfect back drop to celebrate their new bundle and had all the right spots to create the emotion and love they have for their new baby. Can't wait to get the little guy in front...
An absolutely glowing Itia met me at the door of their gorgeous JHB home and immediately I knew it was going to be an experience to remember. Their beautiful open styled home provided a perfect backdrop to capture the incredible family that they are. Despite Itia having the bump, the real star was their little girl who had a smile to melt hearts.
I had a fantastic time with them and can't wait to meet the new addition to their growing family.

I love following a journey, simply because I have a curious nature. I am incredibly inquisitive and I as much as I like to imagine how people end up after I've met them, it is 100 times more satisfying actually knowing. This is partly why I do newborn shoots. It sometime gives me the opportunity to see how my wedding couples end up and what their families become.
I shot their wedding back in 2014 and I got quite excited when Bronwyn asked me to come take photos of her little baby girl who was exactly a month old on the day of our shoot! Her and Klaas are definitely a gentle parental...
It has been a while since I delved into world of newborn photography. It certainly isn't for the faint of heart. Baby is boss! You have to be patient, understanding and try immunise yourself against the odd smelly nappy. Not to mention the dangers of getting peed on by a nappy free baby haha.
I still enjoyed it though, immensely. Arno and Carey are going to make great parents and they are definitely up for the task and you can see that in the photos.
Here's to wishing all the best in their future with little Chloe and hopefully not too many sleepless nights.
