Week 5 – Dreamy bubbles

Posted by on Feb 3, 2014 in Personal | Comments Off on Week 5 – Dreamy bubbles

This is Bokeh… or as some of us call it ‘dreamy bubbles’. My head is constantly filled with dreamy bubbles. When I’m not photographing and I ‘zone out’ as my friends say, I’d like to think that this is what the image in my head would look like. Most of my friends know that I am very bad at concentrating. I sometimes interupt people while they are speaking to say something. Strangers might think that I am rude. Friends know if I don’t say it at that moment I forget what I wanted to say and then end up frustrated. I have appallingly bad...

Child’s play

Over the weekend I had a chance to visit with my best friend Monika.  We took a drive to Strand where I spent a lovely morning entertaining her awesome kids.  People often ask me why my husband and I decided not to have kids, and while it is a personal matter which I won’t go into much detail about, we don’t plan to have them soon.  That doesn’t mean though that I don’t love children.  I’m the aunty that runs around the shopping centre with your child making monster noises.  The aunty that teaches you how to break off leaves on house plants (this is a...

Alette & Jean’s wedding at Leeuwrivier

Last year I had the wonderful opportunity to assist Kathrin Gallova with a gorgeous wedding.  I think one could call this a ‘Pinterest’ wedding.  All the decor was lovingly put together by Alette and her family and the gorgeous flowers were done by Studio Bloem.  Marnel Toerien made sure that Alette looked radiant and I was lucky enough to be able to assist such an amazing team of creatives.  Thank you Jean and Alette for allowing me to photograph you.  May your marriage be showered in blessings 🙂 ...

Niel and Natasha’s wedding at Fraaigelegen

  It was a perfect summery December day when Natasha and Niel tied the knot.  The breeze was blissful and the gorgeous rays of light made everything look picturesque…  Then during our family photos, something happened… The weather made a full 360.  Clouds rolled in, you could hear thunder approaching and soft little rain drops teased our cheeks.  Despite this, Natasha and Niel remained easy going and full of smiles, only having eyes for each other.  Looking back I can honestly say that this was one of my absolute favourite wedding experiences of the year.  I adored...

{Project 52} Week 3

Posted by on Jan 20, 2014 in Personal | Comments Off on {Project 52} Week 3

My project series is taking a bit of a turn, I had to share these series of images with you of my little nephew Lourens.  On a sunny sunday morning, while everyone was busy waking up, we played make believe.  I love playing make-believe, now at almost 30 I still do it.  That is why I chose photography.  Though on my journey i started losing sight of who I am and what I love doing.  I love playing games with my nephew, i don’t do it often because I am always busy.  I love dancing.  I don’t go dancing because I’m always busy.  I love going out with my best friend and...
