I love photographing this family, and it was the 3rd time I did. This time we did a documentary family session on Arolela farm here in the Overberg.
Arolela is a great place for photos, and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the whole afternoon on the farm.
We started with getting some eggs from the chickens, enjoying the roosters parading around. The baby bunnies were a highlight and super soft and cute. When it was time to give the lambs their milk bottles, each one had a turn feeding them. There was even a little black piglet who loved being chased by Caris. The donkeys, Klasie and Elma, were very happy having visitors, because they know they’ll get carrots then…
It was a fun shoot for the kids, they didn’t even realise I was there, and it was relaxing and easy for all of us, because of all the activities and things going on. It was one of my favourite shoots, because I got to only document the moments, telling the whole story of an afternoon on the farm.
