Foltan & Van Der Merwe Biokineticists

corporate

It was such a pleasure working with the team from Foltan & Van Der Merwe Biokineticists to create images for their social media and new website which is coming soon. Here’s a small selection of the images from the day which included team portraits, exercise / stretching / treatment images and some images to show their beautiful rooms. Thank for a great morning Nicola, Vicky, Inge & Christina!

Jaden is 3!

Children, Parties

The Skiathos family celebrated Jaden’s 3rd birthday over the weekend with a super cool Paw Patrol party!

Despite feeling under the weather, Jaden and his friends had a great time exploring the pirate ship, children’s gardening shed and spiral slide of this very cute venue!

Thank you so much to Rene & Spiro for inviting me to photograph this special celebration! Having captured Rene’s maternity & newborn shoots with baby Georgio it’s lovely to see how big their boys are getting!

Michela & Leeroy – Maternity Session

Maternity

The Poulter’s, beautiful mom-to-be Michela and Toyota cross-country racing driver dad Leeroy, are expecting their first son in October!

We started their maternity shoot at the family home so we could include baby’s awesome motoring-themed nursery and also the couple’s fur-baby dachshunds 😉

We wrapped up this lovely shoot out in their estate and found a quiet spot amongst some huge rock outcrops which worked perfectly. I can’t wait to meet baby Poulter soon!

All the best Michela & Leeroy!

Baby Pietman

Newborn
The du Preez’s recently welcomed 7-day old Pietman to their home!
 
To say Pietman’s dad, Pieter (or “Supa Piet” as he’s known) is a legend is somewhat of an understatement. Pieter is a C6 quadriplegic after a tragic accident in 2003 which left him with no movement from his shoulders down. He has no movement in his fingers and hands and little/no movement in his triceps…but that hasn’t slowed him down.
 
In the last couple of years alone he has achieved double gold medals at the Paracycling World Championships, he is a course record holder in the Berlin Marathon, he is the first C6 quad to complete a full 70.3 Ironman and has since completed 4 and he is the world record holder in this event. And most recently he swam the 8km Robben Island swim…a world first for a quadriplegic. He is an actuarial analyst at Deloitte – where I first had the pleasure of meeting him.
 
Illse has been his number one supporter and fan – they just celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary!
 
Now they’re embarking on a new adventure which Pieter affectionately calls his latest achievement as… IRONDAD 😉
 
Pieter is helping raise funds for the Wings For Life Foundation (not-for-profit spinal cord research foundation). You can find out more here: http://www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com/…/help-us-raise-funds-…/

Ronel & Emile – Cape Town Maternity Shoot

Maternity
When Ronél’s request to do her maternity shoot…in Cape Town…came through, I was over the moon!
 
Because a) Cape Town! b) Ronel had a studio session and beach shoot in mind 🙂 I loved the studio shoot as it’s not something I get a chance to do often enough and wrapping up on Clifton 4 (where the couple got married) was just perfect.
 
Thank you so much to the van der Merwe’s who are expecting a special addition to their family in July!
