The Umhlanga beach will always hold a special place in my heart, because my family and I used to go there when I was a child. This was before the big walkway and the pier, before all the development and before all the hotels had locked gates leading on to the beach. Not that I’m old, but sometimes it’s nice to remember the great memories from your childhood. So many families and couples book me to do shoots there and I always jump at the opportunity.

The Ritson’s are a fun-loving family, mum Simone wanted a photo shoot before her two boys leave for the UK. She told me she’d been trying for something like 20 years to get everyone together, and on the same day the boys left for overseas she eventually managed to pull it off!
