Sara-Lee's Matric Ball

I've known Sara since she was grade 8. She & Zorina were my models for make-up artistry exams. Sara has the most amazing eyes & lips, I love doing her make-up. Her mother booked me for her matric ball a year in advance, how organised is that.

Kelly's Matric Ball

Matric Balls are such fun and filled with lots of excitement, so it's really great to be part of the whole experience.

Baby F

This is the baby that got me hooked on newborn baby photography. She was less than 3 weeks old, ideally they should be between 5 & 10 days old, as they are still quite supple and used to being in odd positions in utero and they're very sleepy. This was such a wonderful experience as babies are, just so adorable and warm and they smell so good. She was just such a star, and once we got her off to sleep, she allowed us to try all sorts of things with her, as you'll see from the pics. This type of photography is great and can be done quickly, but the baby has to be asleep, if not then it's just not going to happen.

E Family

What a great time we had with this family. The children are in their pre-teens and were so much fun to work with. With the little miss applying her own make-up, she's showing signs of a make-up artist in the making, and I think her brother the football star...

N & L

Nolu called and asked me to take some pictures of her & her son. It was a great pleasure meeting and working with them. Her son is so cute & he was very curious about all the strange equipment, I think he was more interested in being behind the camera that in front. The shoot tired him out and he fell asleep halfway through, but not before we took some great shots of him.

The next few entries were taken on the same day. We all had so much fun. I think the adults more so than the kids.
