Michael, Angela and their little girl, Alwa were out from Switzerland on a long break in Cape Town earlier this year. They waited SEVEN long and difficult years to become a family and after countless medical interventions decided that adoption was the best route. After much waiting and heartbreak, Alwa joined them two days before Christmas as the most precious gift when she was just 15 months old.
She is now a lovely little 3 year old girl. Photographing them on Llundudno Beach earlier this year, I would never have guessed that things could be any other way than this beautiful little family of three. They are just so lovely together.
A few days after their shoot, they met me at my studio to view and choose their favourite images and a week later were back to collect and bubble wrap some beautiful frames and a fine art album which they took back home with them. They now have some frames hung in their lounge back home as a reminder of their time in Cape Town and most importantly of the reality of the beauty of their little family.
