Being a mom of boys is not a job for the faint hearted…especially when you are outnumbered 4 to 1……because Dad also counts as a boy! Because everyone knows that men don’t ever really grow up…..they just get bigger and have more money to spend on their toys! That being said, this lovely mom takes it all in stride and thrives amongst the men in her life!
After being Missing in Action for a few months now, I have many posts to catch up on!! I hope you enjoy a few of these images from the past Christmas season.
I hope that you enjoyed a fabulous Christmas with your families and that as 2012 draws to a close you look forward to a peaceful and blessed 2013.
Lauren was an absolute vision of beauty in her figure hugging purple matric farewell dress.
This happy family of 4 squeezed a photo shoot into their very hectic 3 week visit to South Africa. They literally got off a plane from Cape Town on a Wednesday morning in April, splashed some water on their faces to be presentable for our shoot on Wednsaday afternoon and then jetted out of the country on Thursday. We were lucky enough to have beautiful warm weather as the girls enjoyed their last few hours in the African sunshine.
As is the case with so many families nowadays, the Fagans are spread around the world and are not often on the same continent. Elna, being the family Matriarch, has wanted a big family photo for her lounge wall for several years and when she heard that Mark and Leigh were coming for a visit from the Cayman Islands, she made sure they understood that she was planning a family photo shoot into their stay.
Co-ordinating a family shoot when everyone lives in one place is tricky enough at the best of times………. throw time changes, family schedules and jetlag into the mix and you are bound to get an interesting result!! After all our planning and schedule checks I am happy to say that “Oumie” (as she is affectionately known) got the results she was looking for. Now she just needs to choose which one she is going to hang on the wall.
It’s such fun being a little girl surrounded by cosmos and a trickling stream.
Little boys…………. they always seem to have an ENDLESS supply of energy. Just when you think they have exhausted all their energy reserves, they dig down deep and find another hidden supply!
These 4 little Tykes had me and their mom’s on our toes. There was definitely not a dull moment in sight and they made sure we knew they where in charge! :p
Friends since they were babies, Lisa and Bronwyn, wanted to capture some special memories of themselves and their boys before Bronwyn returned to Canada, after a long holiday with her family. With rain threatening and unco-operative little boys at times, the shoot definitely wasn’t plain sailing. But I did manage to capture some lovely images of these gorgeous tykes and their mommies.
These gorgeous kids came and had their pictures taken with their mom in the studio at the end of last year. The little boys are twins….and double trouble definitely sums them up!!! They were so full of fun and giggles….they had us all in stitches.
Mom and dad definitely have their hands full with these cuties!
I have loved horses since I was a little girl. So when the opportunity arose for me to photograph these lovely sisters at a riding school, I jumped at the chance. The weather looked ominous the entire day and when the girls were late showing up I was certain we weren’t going to make it before the rain came down. But make it we did and what great atmosphere those gorgeous clouds added to my shots.
