Back in 2008, before I even had this blog, I met this family in Texas and we did a family shoot for them. I wish I had a picture of them to show how much they have grown! One thing stayed the same. This family LOVE each other. It is an absolute blast to spend time with them – to see how they operate and experience how they interact with each other. Who would have known that they would immigrate to Johannesburg and I would get to photograph them again, this time in Cape Town?

Thank you Gruver family for your time and…for loving each other! (: May this new, scary and adventurous time bring you closer to God and each other.  xxx



 I think this is a cork tree? It’s beautiful!

















 (This one below is not just a photo and needs a second or twenty to load, but wait for it…this family is awesome! Loooove the little cha-cha in the end.)
