A very special shoot for me. a very special family. A very special boy.
I was spending a couple of weeks in Florence in September, and the family of my boyfriend came to visit. We enjoyed a beautiful Florentine atmosphere, drove to the lookout point, enjoyed the sincere and warm weather. Filip, a curious 1,5 years old, was giving me goosebumps with his smiles, excitement and sincerity. I hope I managed to catch his childhood spontaneity <3

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.
Iwassohonoured to photograph them while they were expecting their baby girl. We thought that sunrise in the dunes will be the best scenery to portray those tender moments.
Ira is a talented calligraphy master, so we couldn'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 favourite 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.
