 Every family has a flavour….and i like the flavour of this one! It’s incredible how gentle and with how much respect Golo and Ina talk to their children. Since this family is from Sweden, we planned a beach shoot for them. What we did not plan was HECTIC wind. When i got there i though i would have to look for another spot very quickly, but when the family arrived, they acted like this wind was 100% normal and great conditions to do the famiy shoot in. There were also tons of fish in the bay, which was a magnet to fishermen, seabirds and loads of seals. In the end of the day, the wind really did add his flavour too. Wind + the Schmidt family  = grrrreat combo! Also, soon you will get to see the  pictures on my blog of their intimate wedding a couple of weeks after this shoot!

Enjoy Ina, Golo, Freyja and Thora and thanks for just being awesome to meet. When you come to SA again, please come visit!










Wind, fishermen, seals and seagulls!















 The way every girl should be adored:

    Lizelle….we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Honestly, we thought the wind would ruin the whole shooting. But girl, your personality is shining and you’re having such a great heart. Your presence let us forget about the stormy weather. We had so much fun with you that afternoon. I was so sad that the girls had to put on the pink wind jackets, but who would have thought that they would turn out so amazing on the pictures. :-)
    You managed to capture the different personalities of our two girls perfectly in picture 2 and 16, the older one being open and bubbling, but so sensitive, while the younger one is holding back, but before you realize it she is enchanting you and stealing your heart.
    And nr. 21, 24 and 28 will definitively be framed.
    THANK YOU, you enriched our lives. Can’t wait to get back to CT for another family shoot.
