I met Ruan at an Open Day hosted by the Joburg Ballet which my daughter absolutely loved! Ruan and I chatted about taking some photos around the city and met up on a chilly winter morning in June.
Hats off to Ruan who braved the cold and to managing to repeat his athletic moves until we were happy with the images!
Catch Ruan and the stars of the Joburg Ballet in the upcoming 10-performance season of Romeo & Juliet which opens on 15 July.
It was really special to catch up with Jill & Jackie for a mother-daughter shoot.
Mrs Longmore taught me science at Bryandale Primary School many years ago!
We took a leisurely walk around the wetland area at Fourways Gardens Residential Estate which provided a beautiful backdrop for our shoot.
Little Gabriel surprised everyone and arrived a bit earlier than expected! Due to a brief stay in the hospital his newborn shoot went ahead on the originally scheduled date. Although this meant that he was already 3 weeks old he was an absolute star!
It was really special for me to get this opportunity as Gabriel’s proud dad is a well respected wildlife photographer and tour guide (see some of Andrew’s amazing images here).
Congratulations Andrew and Claudia on your handsome, healthy son!
