McCormick Family – Umhlanga Lagoon

08 Feb 2018

I started doing the McCormick family shoot at the top of the Umhlanga lagoon, we did photos in the forest and a few on the wooden bridges. When we got to the beach it unfortunately wasn’t easily accessible, the whole beach was completely washed away with the sea going right up to the forest. So…

Phelisa and family came down to Durban on holiday to visit family, and brought their baby daughter for a photo shoot.

The Bekwa family, like many of my other family shoot clients came down from Johannesburg and stayed in Umhlanga on Holiday. They were referred by their friends who I’d done a shoot for not long before them. It was a bit of a windy day so we started at the lagoon and made our way…

Brink Family – Umhlanga Beach

03 May 2017

Karien and family came to Umhlanga on holiday, they stayed in Umdloti but for some reason we ended up doing their photo shoot in Umhlanga instead.

Mokaedi Family – Umhlanga Lagoon

We originally planned to do the Mokaedi family shoot on the beach by the lighthouse, but it was just too windy and crowded.

I shot Andrea and Westley’s wedding at Zimbali a few years ago, so it was wonderful to hear from Andrea again. She told me that they had a baby now and that she’d like to have a family shoot on the beach in Umdloti, the only problem was that we couldn’t actually button down the…

Drysdale Family – Umhlanga Beach

17 Jan 2017

Most of the time when families come for their photo shoot they like to match their outfits, white shirts and blue jeans seems to be most people’s first choice. I guess someone did it about 30 years ago and everyone since has just believed it to be the norm. I don’t blame anyone for it…
