This is one of my favourite families to photograph! I met them in 2014 when they booked their first shoot, you can see it here. They only had Adriaan and Caris then and we spent the day baking cookies at a beach house in Rooi Els.
The next time I saw them they had a beautiful baby boy Estiaan. I captured them at their home, Adriaan and Caris drawing and showing me their rooms and all their toys. Then we took a stroll to the beach with the sun setting over the water. The kids really didn’t want me to leave when were done…
And next month I’ll be taking photos of them again! I CAN’T WAIT!
Getting to know families and photographing them over the years are really special to me. Maybe because I value family life so much, maybe because I get to see the kids grow up, maybe because I get to spend a little while with another family and capture special moments for them. I think it’s maybe all of these. I am blessed to know you!
