Welcoming Change…

For the last two to three years Petrus’s photography focus has been on the corporate world; he’s doing more technical, engineering and industrial photography. He loves it and is moving stronger into this direction.
While he’s been gallivanting on mines, working in the DRC, running next to big vessels that’s being transported or looking spiffy at an event, I’ve been doing what I love most….
Photographing children and families here at our Secunda studio.

With this beautiful dynamic partnership, the time for the two photographic elements to run on their own has come… I’m proud to announce that from this amazing partnership my company, Gold Leaf Studios is born.
I’ll be working under my own name from October 2016! Same studio, same location here in Secunda, same love and care and commitment to my work as before. Just a new name.

Petrus and I will still be connected with our work and will still be working together on certain projects.
I’m extremely thankful for the opportunity and super excited about the future!

Our Great friend and regular client Suzelle visited us in the studio with her long time friend Susan to have a go at our Mini portrait sessions!

It all feels very natural as they were just Amazing in front of the camera and all these smiles and laughs just came naturally!

Portrait Perfection

I got the idea for my Mini Portrait sessions for Woman’s Day from my good friend Joanne and did not expect it to blow up like it did!  Some of my first clients were Erda van Zyl and her beautiful daughters, her sister and niece with her gorgeous little baby.

Woah!  Complete naturals!  I know it’s very intimidating in front of the lens, but these ladies made it look like a piece of cake.  It’s never too late to pursue a career in modelling you lovely ladies!;) Here are a few highlights of their short, but seriously stunning session…

Bump to Birth sessions are the best! I absolutely LOVED capturing the journey of the Van Staden’s first born baby girl Amy.

Kirsty and Morne just lit up every single session and their love for each other shows! Amy’s amazing smile warmed up the studio as well as our hearts.

The Van Schalkwyk Family

.

Zelda was just about to get back to work from maternity leave when Ansie phoned for a session.  She jumped at the chance because she photographed this lovely family last year and knew it was going to be a stunning session.

We met her in laws as well on this beautiful winter’s day and had a blast – as expected.  We didn’t even feel the cold because of their warm hearts.  So welcoming and loving!

Enjoy…
