This stunning family photoshoot took place, recently, at the Modderfontein Nature Reserve, a little piece of heaven just outside crazy suburbia. As always, this family was a bunch of fun (aren’t I lucky! ;-)) and we had lots of laughs! The main reason behind the photoshoot, was to celebrate the elegant granny’s (I even feel silly calling her that), 60 birthday, that week. It’s always such an honour capturing great family moments, that will be cherished for time to come. I’d been booked for this shoot in February this year, and let me tell you, I was so looking forward to meeting this family, who very evidently cherish family, and special times and moments. They did not disappoint – from the elegant ladies (mom and daughter – who look like sisters), to the gorgeous young ladies (who were super cute and so easy to work with – yay!), to the amazingly patient dad / husband/ son-in-law, who made for some really cool pics with both his stunning wife, as well as his lovely daughters. I can’t even say which was a favorite image or moment, since there were so many. The timing, being our winter, was also fantastic, as firstly winter for us is short, but it’s always a great time to put on boots, scarves, beanies, and make for some truly pretty captures amidst the winter colours and dry veld grasses. Thank you so much for the opportunity and enjoy the post!
Then, a little on the venue/ location itself – Modderfeont Nature Reserve is one of those special places, that is still well preserved and maintained. There’s a picnic area with braai facilities, they offer hikes/ trail running, MTB tracks/ trails and also have a great restaurant there, Val Bonne, that overlooks a damn – and from time to time they also run some fun foodie events. You pay an entry fee to access the reserve, and it is very secure – definitely worth a visit!
