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
