It is my absolute favourite thing to build a relationship with whoever I photograph. This family i did not specifically meet through our first shoot, but our friendship certainly has grown through it!

It does not matter that the children did not really feel like the shoot the specific day. This family just always make me see a glimpse of what “family” means. Mom cannot stop talking good things about dad. Dad loves spending time with his loved family members. Together the parents do their best to raise their children in a godly way, so that they too will one day choose to have a living relationship with Jesus. The dog barks and mom will never be able to clean up or pack away everything fast enough to be one ahead of everything that is happening at once. When i look at it, I can see so much love…so much chaos…and so much character being build, all at the same time. Lovit!!!! Enjoy Hugo and Theresa. I love you as a family to bits.

Here is the HISTORY of their shoots.

1st shoot: Theresa pregnant with their first child, Benjamin. (I didn’t have any form of site yet!)

2nd shoot: Benjamin as a baby. (I have an online preview for clients, but no branding or site yet.)

3d shoot: Theresa pregnant with their second child, Katarien. (I have a site!)

Fourth shoot: Meet Katerien! ENjoy!!!









 Don’t you LOVE the wooden train-station-set?

 My fav little nook in their house. Especially the bay windows! Believe me, they are wonderful for an afternoon nap.

    I actually met Theresa on Friday, and I did think that I recognised her. Now I know where from! hehe!

    What a wonderful series of shoots! How special to have your family captured as they grow, and how lucky to be able to capture it.

    Gorgeous images Lizelle!

    lizelle….hierdie shoot is uitsonderlik fantasties! ek kannie in woorde omsit hoe fabulous dit is nie! As ma van twee kan ek my net inleef hierin…en jy vang dit so mooi vas. ‘n Shoot met twee woelwaters kan mos nie perfek almal-kyk-nou-vir-die-kamera-en-smile wees nie. This is life. En jy het dit perfek vasgevang en verwoord. Well done. Jy het my nou oortuig dat ek ook so ‘n shoot wil he. love love looooovvveee dit!!!!

    What I love most about your photography Lizelle, is how you can capture the joy and vibrance in the most ordinary moments. It’s like looking at pictures of real life, but with all the possible nagative removed from that moment. love, love, LOVE your work…it makes my heart happy:)

    Mooi goed laat my harkie vinnig klop, elke liewe foto van hierdie shoots laat my harkie klop! Dit is onwerklik-werlikwaar die mooiste geniune life foto’s! Woorde is nie genoeg om te beskryf hoe jou foto’s ‘n mens laat voel, dit is om van uit jou nate te spring! Raak sommer opgewonde vir die familie se part, dit is soooo real & just lovable!!!

    Zellie- jy is goed! Kom kuier meer by ons!Jou kamertjie is oop en die koffiemasjien is warm om ‘n koffie te stook. Mag jy ons eendag afneem as Benjamin ‘n kop langer is as sy pa, Katerien soos haar mamma al ‘lipgloss’ dra en ek en Hugo opgevrommel maar steeds lief. Dankie dat jy ons familie die mooiste kiekies gee!
