Wat ‘n mooi tyd van die jaar is herfs troues.

Coetzer family – location

I really love locations shoots, because there are so much more to work with and little children have more freedom than in a studio. The weather is the only factor and on this particular Saturday morning, we had a typical 4 seasons in one day, day. Fortunately for us, it only rained for a couple of minutes and the kids totally enjoyed the dripping rain drops.

New Website

Changing my website  has been on my mind for a couple of months, but not sure of what I wanted has kept me from going ahead with it.  I finally approached Marlene at Xplore studio www.xplorestudio.co.za with a vague set of likes and dislikes.  Marlene worked with such limited information, but knew exactly what I wanted.  She made this entire experience so effortless (for me) and I can highly recommend her.  Marlene is not only a talented web designer, but a loverly person.  Marlene thank you for making this experience a joy. 

 

De Wet family – locations shoot
