Having photographed Trusha & Kishan’s maternity session not so long ago it was really special to visit their home and photograph their beautiful daughter. This beautiful newborn session with 13-day old Baby Meliah was photographed in the comfort of the family home in Bryanston.
I previously worked with Trusha actually so it was even more special to meet her family after all this time. Although at first little Meliah thought everything was rather exciting and was a little fidgety we persevered and thanks to mom and dad’s patience we got so many lovely pics. She is too special for words, congratulations on your new arrival Kishan & Trusha!
Are you or a family member expecting? Get in touch to book your maternity and / or newborn session here. Maternity sessions can be done at home, outdoors or in a beautiful studio style while newborn sessions are generally done in the comfort of your own home soon after baby’s arrival. Let’s chat about what you have in mind to forever remember this incredibly special time for any family.
Portraits with Kayleigh was inspired by the work of portrait photographer Jake Hicks and having purchased some of his tutorials I was over-the-moon to have the incredible Kayleigh Ross in front of my camera for a creative portrait session!
Kayleigh is a complete natural and was the perfect person for this – apart from being super patient with me while I tested the various lighting setups.
We shot this in Kayleigh’s lounge which really is testament to the fact that you don’t need a fancy studio to create some incredible images.
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.
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!
