Liam – Milestone Session

Family

This milestone session for 7 month old Liam was perfect – he was full of smiles and loved the sights and sounds of the Bryanston forest!

It’s been such a privilege working with Leanne & Simon from their engagement session, wedding day, maternity & newborn shoots and Liam’s Christening!

Milestone sessions are always such  fun and so adorable! So much happens in the space of a few short months from crawling, smiling, sitting up, starting to totter around and also the variety of facial expressions and reactions :-)

Anywhere from 6 months up to a year is just perfect for these shoots. Whether we do the shoot in your home, your garden or a favourite park your pretty much guaranteed to get some beautiful photos to capture this special stage for your family.

Find out more here – looking forward to hearing from you!

On-location studio portrait photography for the Johannesburg office of CWDi

corporate, Portraits

On-location studio portrait photography allows you to get high quality, beautifully lit portraits without having to leave the comfort of your home or office. This means less of a disruption to your busy work day as team members can fit their shoot in-between meetings and client deliverables.

Creating these team portraits for the JHB office of CWDi was great – the brief was to capture a bit of each person’s uniqueness and to avoid the ‘boring’ headshots.

I setup a studio at the company offices in Fourways with the dark grey backdrop for the desired end result. The second part of the brief was to emulate headshots that had been taken at the company offices in Cape Town for a consistent look for the new company website.

To get more info on my on-location studio portrait photography options please get in touch here.

Your images can be done against a variety of backdrops or we can create ‘environmental portraits’ with your office space (or outdoor area) to set the scene.

Turnaround times are a priority and we aim to deliver within a week from the shoot date.

Personal Branding Portraits for Catriona

Portraits

Having done some family photos for Catriona over the years including her maternity & newborn session for now not-so-little Luca I was really happy to work with her again – this time for some her own personal branding portraits. We met up at her home to create a selection of relaxed portraits that can be used for both her business and social media needs. It was really fun creating these with you Catriona – thanks again!

While meeting at home might not be your first choice you may be surprised at what opportunities it presents. What you consider to be a rather boring spot becomes the perfect photo opportunity with the correct lighting and professional photographic eye ;-)

Not-to-mention having your full wardrobe at your fingertips – what’s not to love!

Pop me a message if you’re interested in your own personal branding portraits session like this – find out more here!
