Jackie & Kirsty – Mom & daughter photo shoot in Newtown – Johannesburg photographer

5 Jun

I have known Kirsty and Jackie for many years and have always admired their incredibly close relationship, they love each other dearly and it shows, and they have so much fun together, it’s  a really special bond.

I photographed Kirsty’s 30th birthday party in  November, also held in the city, at the awesome #1 bar in Braamfontein, what a super awesome party with an extraordinary view of the city, I loved it so much I carried on shooting till 3am, Kirsty really appreciated that.

Kirsty loves the city so much, and any opportunity she gets to spend time there partying, or just exploring, she will take it, so  she really loved the idea of doing the mom and daughter shoot, that she had bought for her mom as a mother’s day gift, in Newtown, this for her was just the perfect location. Mom Jackie was a little nervous,  when we met on Sunday afternoon outside Museum Africa,  simply because of the stigma the city still carries to some, but she  soon got over her initial apprehension, and really enjoyed herself. Kirsty and Jackie had such fun with this shoot, and of course so did I.

I will say it again, I love the city, and seriously need to spend loads more time exploring.

MOM & SON VINTAGE SHOOT WITH TRAINS AND TRACKS – GAUTENG PHOTOGRAPHER

27 Mar

I asked my client, Cashe, to please write me a little something about her vintage mom and son, photo shoot experience. We did the shoot at Hermanstad train station in Pretoria and it was just the kind of shoot i have been wanting to do for so long now, neelesss to say I was a very happy Bron, its so aweosme to do a styled, creative shoot, gets the juices flowing, now bring on more of these shoots  universe!!!!

IN CASHE’S WORDS:

The suitcase with the money in it…

Just like every proud and doting mommy, I wanted to immortalize the little moments with my 5 year old before life happened and they slipped by.  It was fortunate that I had been given a gift of a family photo shoot and what better setting than at a steam train station in Pretoria? I wanted a vintage but not that vintage shoot and we pulled it off spectacularly!  When we arrived I was very nervous about the fact that I’d be in these photos as well but had reassurance from my Riley that I looked very pretty and Bron made it easy for me to feel comfortable as well…  Although that did take time.  The first few photos must have been a flop, but after a quick wardrobe adjustment I started feeling so much better and really got into the shoot.

Trying different poses, different settings, different backdrops, I didn’t want the shoot to end I was having so much fun and seeing my little guy in his 1920’s gangster regalia was precious.  After the initial nerves and uncertainty I went from timid and awkward to confident and relaxed and that shows in our photos!

While we were capturing the last shots of the day with a massive storm brewing in the distance and wind going like crazy, I was thrilled  that mother nature had done her bit to create the mood for us, wind machine and all.

It was an epic day of laughter, excitement and fun and  I’ve already started planning our next stylized shoot that Bron will be capturing as only she can, now just to find another outstanding venue like the last!

The prettiest girl in pink – Johannesburg family photographer

24 Nov

I met Renate, Andre and gorgeous Dune at Johannesburg Botanical gardens in Emmerentia, for their family shoot. On that particular day the gardens were crowded, to say the least, but we were on our own mission and so we made our way from the bottom of the botanical gardens right to the top, stopping here and there to do some shots, we had to dodge and dive loads of people that day, but we managed to find some awesome spots, and so I got the pics I had planned. I really enjoyed this shoot, and oh my word! Dune is such a gorgeous little girl and oh so friendly, I managed to get some really beautiful shots of her.  I really love what I do, and I so  love family photo shoots like these, thank you ,my lovely clients xx

Lebo’s Lovely family – Johannesburg family photographer

2 Nov

I met Lebo and her lovely, lovely family at Emmerentia botanical gardenss, which in retrospect might not have been such a good idea as it was the start of the wedding season and the place was covered with brides and bridal party and indeed the entire wedding entourage. But we managed to do our family photo shoot in amongst all the noise and clutter and I am very pleased with the results.

Susan, Waiman and their gorgeous boys

25 Oct

I met Susan, Waiman and their gorgoues boys, Ethan and Kaedon at the Walter Sisulu Botanical gardens for their photo shoot. Ethan is so enthusiastic and curious about his surroundings, it was such a delight to share in his wonder of all that surrounded him.  Especially his curiosity about the black eagle that resides on the Little falls koppie, we spotted one or two flying overhead much to Ethan’s delight. What a super fantastical shoot this was, and such an awsome family, gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous all the way, thanks guys you rock!!

Dina Newborn son shoot – Sandton Newborn Photographer

26 Sep

Dina asked me to do a newborn shoot quite some time ago just after her son was born, but she wanted to do the shoot once her son was a couple of weeks old which is actually my favourite type sof shoot as baby is a bit more interactive. We did the shoot at her home in Sandton. It was a very overcast day but we still managed to make use of the bit of the natural light that was still available, I really dont like using studio lights for newborn shoots, anyway you can’t beat natural light. Dina’s son was a star, he was happy and very relaxed, thanks guys for a lovely session.

Sheetal Newborn shoot – Johannesburg Newborn Photographer

26 Sep

I have been flooded lately with either newborn  or maternity shoots, which Im loving, tis the season it would appear to either be expecting or having a baby. I love to capture the natural unobtrusive interaction between baby and parents and so I make use of natural light wherever I can, prefering to document rahter than set up the shoot.

I did Sheetals’ shoot at their home and we had a very chilled, relaxed time of it. The very proud granparents joined in at the end of the shoot for a few pics.
