Newborn Anika!

My youngest "client" yet! Newborn Anika was only 6 days old when her parents brought her to the studio for her shoot. She was an absolute angel and seemed to really enjoy the lights and attention! She was so alert at times I had to remind myself that she was just 140 odd hours old!!!! Incredible! Birka and Jako, thank you for such a great shoot and producing this gorgeous little girl!
Here are some photos from their shoot...

Brett & Hannah Tie the Knot!

It is always so great to be asked to photograph a wedding further-a-field but when Brett & Hannah asked me to do their wedding photos on a beach, how could I, the South African born-on-a-beach, refuse!?
It was such a pleasure meeting the Miller family albeit it briefly on a "sightseeing" trip to Milford-on-Sea and getting to know them a little more over the course of the wedding weekend.

After spending a few days before the big day becoming obsessed with the weather forecast, crossing every available finger and toe hoping for beach-friendly weather, the day dawned and I was more than pleased! There was a little cloud cover, but no storm or heavy rain forecast, phew!
I arrived early at Hannah's home only to find the bride fully made up with her hair done and she had still managed to squeeze in a 5 mile run....all before 9:15am!! We got busy with photographing the prep and before we knew it, it was time to leave for the Church.
I arrived at the picturesque All Saints Church in Milford to find Brett and his "Best man" (his nephew) waiting patiently for Hannah to arrive.
Shortly after a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony, Brett and Hannah had exchanged rings (without having to wrestle them on!) and were wedded!
Their reception followed at the Westover Hall Hotel and we escaped onto the beach to do some individual Bride and Groom Photos.

All in all, it was a beautiful day filled with love and laughter. Here are some photos of their day.

Brett & Hannah, heres to your future - and may that too be filled with love, laughter and happiness! Congratulations!
