About Me

I am a mother of three boys (three boys, being punished for my sins!) and have been a fan of photography for years. I started shooting weddings seriously about five years ago. With the arrival of my twins, I decided to reduce my working hours in order to spend more time at home with my boys. Using photography to make up for the loss of income was a natural progression.

This is where you will be able to catch regular excerpts of what I am up to...

No wedding today, playing catch up today.

 

I cannot express how much I adore this one single frame.

I was supposed to share this wedding with you a couple of days ago, but unfortunately, there were some gremlins that had infiltrated my blog.


At any rate, here are some snippets from Mankoana's and Nzuzo's elegant ceremony.


Their day?   It was sublime.


Pink and purple balloons. A slight breeze to cool off another blistering summer day, a laidback, stylish bride and a groomsman's dance routine that didn't quite go 100% according to plan J but, a second-take stint towards the end of the evening was the perfect conclusion to a magnificent day.


A breathtaking occasion - thank you, Mankoana and Nzuzo.

 

Sit back and enjoy, and leave a little love, either here or on my Facebook Page.

Hello.  Crikey, it's mid-November.   Gasp...Christmas next month.

 

I feel quite awkward typing these few words onto my almost-2-week untouched blog, but I can assure you it's been anything but subdued on this side.  Besides editing my vast backlog, there has been the annual Hallowe'en festivities, then the year-end concerts and functions, plus, to eclipse all else, the boys' birthday party this past weekend.

 

In true tradition for their birthday mega-celebration, Jake and Liam opted for different themes: a Lego party for Liam and an Avengers party for Jake.


Here's a snippet from their little jamboree.

 

 

First up the Lego party...

....and the Avengers Party

The gorgeous cupcake toppers were by Cathrine, from the Smartie Box.

During the speeches, I think it was Anuschka's dad who happened to mention that all the precious and important people in their lives were present at Auschka's and Richard's wedding.


And it always fascinates me the sheer number of moments that can be documented in just one day. 

 

Surrounded by people that they love; energetic kids running everywhere; a flower girl playing in a fountain with her bouquet; the chaos of putting everything together; the quiet and tender moments reading love notes; the tears; the laughter and the joy..... it's all the things that weddings are made of and I'm totally thrilled that Anuschka and Richard allowed me to capture theirs.
