Another fantastic family photoshoot with this sweet family, at Moreleta Kloof Nature Reserve in Pretoria East. We met early on a recent Sunday morning, mainly for the light, but also to accommodate this little princess – as she only just over 2 years old, and if you know children, you know that they do not last long. When you’re trying to create sweet moments and memories, you want to get the best out of the time you have with them. It was good morning on many levels, as the venue was not overly busy at 7:30am on a Sunday, but also despite mom being a little concerned, we managed to get a lovely selection of captures… and… it’s a lovely location to work. Those who know me, know that I adore working with and photographing children, even though I’ll be the first to admit that they are exhausting – you have to work fast and preempt what they may do next and more often than not, change your shooting plan on its head 🙂 and that’s pretty much how this one went… but I was so happy to do what it took to get the moments, the grins, the looks, and that sweet little facey!!! Oh and how cute is that little dress??? Henli, thank you so very much for the opportunity. I enjoyed working with all three of you and look forward to the next opportunity – enjoy your preview.
One of my favorites – a sweet moment between the three, that led to some “shyness”
Apparently, we love “grooming mom” *sweetness*
A little on the location – for those who don’t know, Moreleta Kloof Nature Reserve is in the middle of Pretoria East suburbia, and is home to a variety of wildlife, offers trails for hiking, running and apparently mountain biking (not 100% sure on that one though). On the reserve is also an original old farm house, which is home to the Rademeyer’s Restaurant. They also offer a venue for hire and a chapel, which is perfect for smaller weddings – truly pretty. I stayed on at Rademeyers, after the shoot for a farm breakfast (because starving ;-), which did not disappoint. I’ll be doing a separate blog post on Rademeyers, so watch this space.
