When a family photo shoot includes the dogs, you know you’ve found your kind of people. Heck, if I could own 3 kittens and a horse, I’d be the happiest woman alive. The funniest part is finding out a dog is camera shy.
It was 4C when I left for this portrait photo shoot one icy August morning… FOUR DEGREES! With a biting wind to add an extra edge to the cold, I was worried that my client, the lovely Clarinda, was going to freeze in this less than hospitable weather. But she braved the cold in her eye-catching dress with a winning smile and posed with such grace and poise. Clarinda, you deserve a medal!
Guys! Wow, what a crazy couple of weeks it’s been and I am only getting to share this beautiful couple’s photo shoot with you now. And no, I’m not just saying it’s a beautiful shoot simply because I took the photos (that would be seriously biased!) This was one of those gorgeously scenic Durban winter afternoons. The light was absolutely perfect and we entered into that surreal time of golden hour where the sun’s rays seemed to float, suspended in the air… Just LOOK at how these photos from Jane and Howard’s beautiful couple’s photo shoot came out!
Let’s face it: standing in front of a camera lens and trying a set of poses for a photo shoot isn’t something that comes naturally to many of us. It’s pretty hard to look and feel natural when a camera lens is pointed in your direction. You suddenly feel self-conscious and you’re not sure what to do with your hands, how to stand or where to look. Knowing a few poses for a photo shoot can come in handy if you feel a bit awkward staring at a camera lens. You’ll look and feel beautiful and confident, and it will show in your photographs!
What a beautiful newborn photo shoot! At just 17 days’ old, Linke made her photographic debut with Bamboo Shoot Photography… and this precious little poppet stole the limelight. She was a delight to photograph while her proud parents took turns in cuddling their newborn baby girl.
You’ve booked the photographer, rounded up your whole family for an afternoon in front of the camera lens and then it hits you: you’ve no idea what to wear to a photo shoot. Don’t panic: figuring out what to wear to a photo shoot can be a lot simpler than you think. (more…)
It’s 20h20 on 20 December 2016, so it seems like the ideal time to post my top 20 top photos of 2016. (See what I did there?) Plus, the stories that go behind some of the best photos I’ve taken so far include sitting in buck poop, keeping my distance from irritable zebras, and being told how to take photos by a 5-year-old. Oh, and telling dodgy jokes to church people… good times! (more…)
