I looooooove these 2 people!
Jonel and i studied together and has been friends ever since. She is a true friend: constant, wise, loyal, not scared to correct me if needed and always ready to encourage! A couple of months ago she took 2 days out of her busy life to help me organise mine! She is extremely skilful organiser so we literally reshuffled everything in my office, room and unpacked boxes. To say thank you, we organised this shoot with her husband, Ferdi. Ferdi is an arty CA. Yes it’s true! He works for media 24 as a CA and has played lead roles in musicals for Gilbert&Sullivan shows at the Artscape Cape Town. Another reason why it was so much fun shooting these 2! It was as if they stepped right out of the Gatsby era. Jonel recently launched her new website 10twelve24, after working as a graphic designer for a well known company in Cape Town for the last 5 years. So excited for her!
Dankie Nellies en Fer! Julle is na aan my hart. En WAT ‘N FEEEEES OM JULLE AF TE NEEM! Geniet julle kiekies. xxx
This kid is next level cute!!!!!!
I photographed Stuart and Tabitha’s wedding back in 2009. (See their wedding images HERE) Photographing their family made me remember why I loved shooting them so much! They are so relaxed and little Lliam …well, he is cuteness to the max.
Enjoy Stuart and Tabitha!
Bianca het ‘n glinster in haar oog wat helder skyn. En ek sien dit in haar mammie se oë ook. Mag niks of iemand dit ooit wegneem nie!
Dit was heerlik om weer te kon connect. (Ek en Maritza was saam op skool in Caledon.)
Geniet julle kiekies! Baie liefde xxx

I loved shooting decor for the extremely talented ladies of Leipzig. It was for an easter feature for The Pretty Blog. (See their post on this shoot HERE) The table was set in the beautiful Stellenbosch venue, Landtscap.
Enjoy the post and creativity of the Leipzig team!
Two AWESOME and CARING people will become their own family soon …and I love it!
We spend the afternoon photographing on the farm where I live and the “tea” after the shoot turned into a late night “kuier” with very unplanned egg and toast for supper.
Dankie vir ‘n heerlike shoot en kuier Conrad en Esti en ek bid julle baie lekkertes en blessings levitra prescribing toe met julle baba wat oppad is. (Ek nou nogal self nuuskierig of dit ‘n seuntjie of dogtertjie is! Time will tell né.)

Hair and make-up: The exquisite Look
I saw a post on Facebook today that Special Events‘ Shop in Stellenbosch is almost one year old! I did a shoot at their shop opening and never got to blog it. Now, a year later I blog, because…
- I love the Special Events Shop!
- i often photograph weddings that has props / rentals from them.
- because they are such awesome, easy-to-work-with people (they have been doing it for a few years already)
- i always am looking for a chance to share Cialis photos (:
- if you are looking for a helping hand at your wedding, they can be very helpful! (they do wedding planning, decor and flowers, rental etc and recently did the flowers for Karlien van Jaarsveld’s wedding)
Magriet is a dr at a local hospital in the premature ward and asked if i would be interested in taking some images for them. I did not have to think twice -I LOVE documenting! I wish I could go in every day for a month or two to see these specific little babies grow and develop . It truly was an eye opener to see with what love and dedication these doctors and mothers help these tiny humans to grow gram for gram.
One of the methods they use to help these babies grow, “kangaroo care”: This is soooooo interesting – read more about it HERE. Some of these mothers has to stay with their babies in hospital for months, so they can grow VigRX up to 1.8kg, when they are finally big enough to go home. They are truly little fighters and this experience makes me want to see/experience / document more. And them of coarse share what i’ve seen. (:
Thanks to Magriet for getting written permission from all the parents of these babies to photograph them.
Today i cannot help but smile.
Last night myself and my housemates went to the Artscape theatre. What a great privilege to live with 2 friends that challenge and teach you, while having fun in the most beautiful house and surroundings? Dankie Mia en Ili!!!
This morning i woke up and already had messages from people that i love.
I started the day, spending time with God and playing piano – and Chessy the farm cat that adopted us as her friend, came and sat beside me on the piano bench.
2 squirrels came closer to listen and later on sat in the tree closest to our “piano-window.”
(I am not a master on the piano at all hgh counterpart and can pretty much just play one song which is Ameli’s theme song. –>Mail me if you want the sheet-music!)
When i stepped into the office, Taryn, (who helps me sooo much with editing and so much more) filled my part of the table with colourful balloons.
Later on this afternoon friends are coming over for “koek and rooikoeldrank” and this weekend the celebrations continue.
Im excited for the years to come. Im excited to see what God has in store and the adventures I will have with Him.
And as my brother Tjaart says, only a quarter of my live has passed. (:
The best is yet to come.

Thank you Chris and Mila for your beautiful wedding!
Before I could write this post, i had to chew a bit on what happened. Thanks for your patience Maria! (: Here goes…
Maria is my “Afrikaans-German” friend. She grew up in Germany and studied in Stellenbosch, where she learned to speak Afrikaans fluently. Currently she is living in Hamburg, but came to SA for vacation. I’ve done a shoot with Maria back in 2009 (see it HERE) and we decided to do a follow-up. I never knew she can grow to become even more beautiful!!!!
The shoot started off with a hair and makeup session. (Thank you Madeleen for doing SUCH AN AWESOME job with the makeup and Julien for her beautiful curls!) The lighting was so beautiful on the day that i started shooting in Welgevonden Estate Stellenbosch, since it was on our way to the spot i chose for the shoot. Sometimes a shoot just works and this was one of those. Maria was being a star and the light and location were all working together. I still showed Maria a few of the images because I was so excited about them. Her little face beamed even more.
As I was driving out of the Welgevonden gates, I saw even more prettiness. Soft light and purple flowers in an open field. Living in SA, I scanned the area and only saw 2 guards on the opposite side of the road. We continued with the shoot. After a few minutes of forgetting about everything that was going on around us, Maria looked up and warned me that there was someone coming up behind me. When i looked around the man was about 5m from me. The next minute (or rather millisecond) he pulled out a knife and ran towards me, demanding my camera. In the process of trying to move away and getting the camera off my neck, i fell over backwards and then (rather desperately) handed him what he asked for: Canon 5D MkIII with the Canon 50mm f1.2. I so badly want to ask pro hgh for the memory-card of the shoot, but I just knew discussing this matter was not an option with this wild-eyed man. He demanded my Shootsac with my other lenses, memory-cards and car keys, but before I handed it over, Maria started screaming- like only a woman can. I joined the choir. At this stage the man became distracted and i tried to kick him…where no man wants to be kicked. I still don’t know if i succeeded – the adrenaline was pumping so much – but he left. Not really running. Just jogging. Past the 2 onlooking guards of a new residential development. We then saw that a second man was also hanging around, leaving the same time as Wild-Eye-Man.
We were rattled, shocked and VERY angry about losing the images – but safe and unharmed. After a yelling session directed towards the guards, a drive to the inside of the Welgevonden-gates, a thank-you-prayer and a teary call to my mother we decided to continue the shoot. I still had my backup camera and other lenses and Maria was showing her awesome and brave character. We were drying a few tears while shooting, but we decided it’s like horse riding – if you fall off, you get right back on.
Our church family was AMAZING. So many people, as well as the leaders supported us by praying for us and making sure we really were ok. Maria and I ask each other every so often how we are doing, how God is dealing with the fear in our lives etc etc. It’s great to have people like that in your life.
Maria, thank you for being my friend.
We prayed for at least 10 photos. God is faithful:
It’s always fun shooting these two! They have endless ideas and are keen to do all of them!
Thank you for begin SO MUCH FUN Emil and Tarryn! Enjoy. (:
I am definitely going to be one of those grannies with a photo-album in my handbag. (Or maybe by then, it will be some sort of iPad.)
