About Me

I am a mother of three boys (three boys, being punished for my sins!) and have been a fan of photography for years. I started shooting weddings seriously about five years ago. With the arrival of my twins, I decided to reduce my working hours in order to spend more time at home with my boys. Using photography to make up for the loss of income was a natural progression.

This is where you will be able to catch regular excerpts of what I am up to...

The latest craze around here; snakes, lizards and frogs.

Friday afternoon picnic. Grass under our feet, cold ciders, throwing stones into the stream . A perfect way to end the week.

I am not sure where I should start with this wedding?


Do I begin by telling you how Stella and I were transported to Nylstroom, which is a veritable African oasis?   Or, shall I go on about the stunning Maroela tree, in the middle of the African savannah, where Martin and Bronwen decided to get married? 
 
Would I be able to articulate just how intimate and tranquil the entire day was?  How can I not mention that Ashley has a wicked sense of humour (for an 8 year old) and that he acted as my third shooter?  Or, shall I merely update you on Wimpie, our mentally-imbalanced ;-) game ranger, with a death wish, who took "close encounters" to another level and took far too much pleasure in selecting our locations within 10 metres of crocodiles, cheetahs, hippos and other dangerous wildlife?

I very much doubt it, so let's allow the images to do the work.

 
Thank you, Bronwen. Thank you, Martin. The experience will be fondly remembered!

You would have not guessed it by the expressions here but a big crocodile was lying about 5 meters away.

Sharon:

After that intro you gave I was looking for all the creatures in the bushes LOL. Stunning photos as always

Bronwen & Martin:

The photos look fabulous - we had so much fun with you and Stella. Thanks for making us feel so comfortable and we can't wait to see the rest.

(09.26.10 @ 09:21 PM)
AndreaC:

We had a ball with the two of you both! - petrified at the close encounters, but a good laugh.
@Sharon: The creatures were so close that they were not in the bush but near us! The problem was it all started to look a little sureal that when selecting (for the blog) the photos with the animals looked a little too close, posed and staged (which obviously they weren't) so I posted the ones without.

Stella:

Stunning Andrea!!! Love love those rocks... I just couldn't resist posting some of the close encounters :) Bronwen & Martine, thank you for a wonderful (though surreal) experience :)

To Bronwen and Martin - congratulations on your marriage - may you have many ahappy years together. You may not remember me, but I am Aunty Carol's sister-in-law: Uncle Lex's wife. Do you remember the boys? Michael, Stephen, Collin and Brendon. It is many years since we were all together - visiting with the Dougalls.

Your wedding photos are beautiful. Aunty Carol said the wedding was super. I know your mom put a lot of work into all the plans so it could only be a success!

I love lazy Sunday afternoons with family, food and wine - and sweet moments like this.

 

Sometimes, just sometimes, they make my heart say aaaaahhhh.
