i am: EXPECTING ~ Lylie and Will

Its twins! Lylie and Will are expecting in around 4 weeks time, the first pregnancy for Lylie and its going to be twice the fun! We decided on a relaxed location with their cute little spaniel Tickles and made the best of what seems to be an unusually mild autumn. 

Looking forward to seeing Lylie and Will again in a few weeks time when they welcome their new additions. Its a surprise as to the sex of the babies so I am excited to see who I am going to meet!

Almost there Lylie! See you all very very soon :)


i am: remembering

I took this photo earlier this year in the early summer and find it very fitting for today. Rememberr 11/11/11. The quote is from someone I believe had the right vision, not only for my country of South Africa, but for the people of the world. Life will knock you down. Get back up and keep on going. Fight for your freedom from whatever may be weighing you down in your life. Fight. And dont stop.


i am: BRAND NEW ~ Eden

This week I got the chance to photograph another little girl. She joins the rank as princess number three in her household :) This shoot was a little 'on the spot' so there are no costume changes or faffing around, just baby loveliness! Here she is, the beautiful Eden...

ta daaaaa!


i am: BRAND NEW ~ Isabel

Yesterday was a beautiful, steaming hot day in London Town. I was driving from Northampton to Morden in Surrey to meet and photograph Isabel, the stunning new addition to Littish and Charl's house. Windows down, music up, belting out Top 40 tunes to any passerby that will listen! Yesterday was perfect. Isabel is perfect, and the whole shoot came together perfectly. Thank you Littish, you are wonderful! You did a fantastic job with your precious new addition and I am so blessed to have been a part of it all! Here are a few photos to drool over...

Seeeeeeeee.....PERFECT xxx


i am: Forever Jane Austen...

Monday was inspired. I spent the entire day breathing photography...drinking it in scene by scene created for me by the wonderful Melissa Love. She co-ordinated an event of the Jane Austen persuasion with Chelsea La Vere and MAN was it gorgeous! Ok, obviously the whole thing wasn't JUST for me, I did share with the other 39 photographers who feel the same way I do, but a girl can pretend right?!

Here is my interpretation of the day, please let me know what your thoughts are :)
