Irmgard's Family // Camps Bay Beach

Irmgard's Family // Camps Bay Beach

21 May 2018

Irmgard and her husband, children and their partners are some of the warmest and most lovely people I've had the priviledge of meeting. They are from The Netherlands and came to Cape Town for a holiday in March. Her daughter, Joy, contacted me before the time as an idea to do the shoot as a gift for their mother's 50th birthday.

I met them on what must have been the windiest day of the year in Camps Bay. We struggled with the wind and then found a fabulous cave which had the most beautiful and interesting light.. and somehow wind always adds some beautiful movement despite it being relentless and very sandy.

They came back to my studio 2 days later to select their images and after much deliberation, decided to print an album of their photos as a beautiful keepsake to always remember their time in Cape Town.

I spent such a fun afternoon in studio with this gorgeous woman. She first had her hair and make-up done by Tarryn and then she brought in a few different outfits. We spent most of our time in studio and then went out to a local green belt for a few shots outdoors.

I cannot believe that Sue is going to be 60 next year. Sue is just beautiful all over and with the most gentle and lovely way about her.

I photographed the lovely Heike a few months ago in studio and on the beach at Muizenberg  and this time she wanted something completely urban and different.

I spent such a fun morning with her in Woodstock and Observatory, walking around and checking out colourful spots and interesting light to be photographed in and stopping at the end for a glass of wine.

Niccola contacted me at the end of last year to do a shoot for her to commemorate her 50th birthday. She has done photoshoots at the start of each decade of her life - what a wonderful idea.

She didn't want any make-up done or any photoshop retouching as she wanted this shoot to be a true reflection of who she is at this age and who she has become. She brought in 3 simple outfits and a tiny purse of accessories and we spent a fun afternoon in my studio.

I absolutely love photographing women over 40 - there is a certain confidence and self acceptance that seems to come with time that is so beautiful to capture. Niccola is completely comfortable in her own skin and just lovely to photograph.

Deidre is Irish, Jon is American and they currently live in Angola with their two gorgeous little girls. We met early on a Saturday morning at Camps Bay where the kids could run and be play and the light was beautiful.

I met them at my studio 2 days later to show them their images and they chose their favourite images to be printed and bound in a beautiful fine art album.

I've photographed this family so many times over the past few years and watched how they have grown from three to four to six. It's all a beautiful chaos with little kids and twins in the mix and it's so clear that Vanessa and Greg completely delight in their children.

This time I met them early at Llundudno Beach where the morning light is gorgeous and the beach is safe and contained for littlies to run around.

I've photographed this gorgeous family several times over the past few years when they're in Cape Town and it's been lovely to see them regularly and to witness and document their growth as a family.

This time we met at Llundudno beach which has beautiful big boulders and gorgeous light.
