The Van Der Merwe Family

There is not a family I know that lives in more breath-taking surroundings than the Van Der Merwes. Surrounded by these beautiful mountains and stunning waterfalls, imagine waking up to this view every morning! Wow! Thank-you so much for allowing me to come and photograph you guys on your farm. I had lots of fun and so glad I got some chickens again!

Perhaps you are wondering about the chickens?? Well here's the story; Jean and his cousin Chris have a chicken business. Very avid business men always seek opportunities to grow and of course sell! You see I had purchased chickens in the past from these two brilliant business men, but due to human error they were savagely consumed by my Alsatian two days upon arrival! As news travels fast in my home town, these two, upon hearing of my unfortunate news had the brand new chickens ready for sale! One-stop chicken shop! I LIKE! “Dankie julle twee!”

The McManus Family

I was so excited to photograph The McManus Family. When they contacted me for a session, I automatically thought of my Farmer Friend's Sunflower field!!

The story started about a month ago when my Farmer Friend phoned me saying if I want to captured these beautiful flowers in bloom I should come within 10 days!! Yes, folks, that is how long the Sunflower flowers in the year! So to my utter dismay a month went by and I set my sights for next year. I had missed the magnificent display :-(
But a few days before the shoot I was given news that there are still some Sunflowers in bloom! Immediatly I contacted the McManus' and arranged a "shot-gun" session. They were ready-steady, and the shoot was set!

Thanks so much McManus family for your confidence in me. I am so happy about the photo's and know you will love them too!

The Swanepoel Family

Do you remember Ariston? What a sweet little boy. A miracle baby that arrived just in time! And now look how big he has gotten!
Such a chirpy little man. He loves people and he loves to smile.. and drool!
It was so fun photographing the Swanepoel family. I laughed so much with Ariston and his parents, Sanet and Edwin.
Enjoy your photo's!
