I have been photographing Ira and Illia since my very first year in Cape Town. Their love story has been a source of inspiration for me, and I always admired that special tenderness, passion and common dreams that they share.
I wassohonoured to photograph them while they were expecting their baby girl. We thought that a sunrise in the dunes will be the best scenery to portray those tender moments.
Ira is a talented calligraphy master, so we could't resist decorating the table and having breakfast with an ocean view.

People often ask me if I do family or pregnancy photoshoots. Yes, I do. I often call myself a wedding and couple photographer, but I do capture many beautiful families and lots of those very special moments. I love when my wedding clients come back to me after some time, asking to take photos of their growing families. My heart sings at the moments like those.
I decided to collect a few of my favorite family and pregnancy shots, to give you an idea of my style. As you see, I love candid spontaneous shots, so I usually take my clients out for a walk. And we share some happiness.
They flew all the way to South Africa with a dream to exchange marriage vows next to the ocean. I was there to witness a very intimate, honest and emotional wedding ceremony "for two". After that special moment when they promised to love, respect and cherish each other, we drove to my favourite beach for a stunning sunset, stopping along the way.
I hope you will like these honest and very sweet moments captured by my camera.
This lovely family shoot was a beautiful present for a little Julian -what a good idea to capture his smiles and that tenderness between his parents, I hope he will cherish these photographs when he grows old.
One of the most memorable shoots in Cape Town for me - this bright, cheerful and very warm family morning at the Llandudno beach. Moments like this make my heart sing.
