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-…/

The Geldart Family

Family

Thank you to Kelly and her family (& cousin Sarah) for meeting me on an unusually chilly day for a really fun shoot where we got to explore 3 areas of the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens.

It was really great shooting at the gardens again as it offers so many beautiful spots to choose from! We even got to see the resident nesting black eagles :-)

Baby Mila

Newborn

Donna & Jean welcomed little baby Mila to their family recently! Here she was just 7 days old :-)

The little knitted jersey & crocheted blanket were made by Mila’s great gran for her gran when she was born, then passed down to her mom and now Mila! And the beautiful quilt was made just for Mila by her gran.

Congratulations to the Blanckaert Family!

Baby Giorgio

Newborn

After his beautiful Fresh 48 shoot (see link below) it was great to meet little Giorgio at home 10 days later for his newborn session.

Jaden was only too happy to hold his baby brother and plant lots of kisses for us :-)

Congratulations Rene & Spiro on your two handsome boys!

 

Baby Nikhil

Newborn

Yashoda & Dharmesh welcomed little Nikhil to the family last month. I met them at their beautiful new home when he was just 10 days old for his newborn session.

Big sister Liya and brother Rahul are pretty excited to say the least :-)

Thank you so much for inviting me to photograph your handsome baby boy!
