Cape Town Family Beach Shoot

The Smiths


We met up with the lovely Smith family at Derde Steen one Sunday morning in January for their Cape Town family beach shoot.  It was a perfect Summers morning in Cape Town, with NO WIND!  A rarity at this time of year!

Gosh, it was really tricky finding a day to suite everyone,  After several forward and backwards emails, we finally got the date set.   What a stunner of a day it was!  When it came to location for the shoot I had to have a giggle at Barbara.  She said their one dog in particular gets very excitable so it may be a good idea to be “away from the public eye.”  She was not joking!  The Smith family’s two Springer Spaniels are adorable, but oh boy do they panic when their humans are out of sight!  They are very cute though, and most certainly 100% part of this family.  They are very loved!  All beautifully groomed and looking gorgeous for the shoot, it was quite a job stopping them from running into the ocean which is where they really wanted to be.

How cute – at the end of the shoot they were let free and they had an absolute ball in the water!

What a fun time we had doing the Smith’s Cape Town family beach shoot.   Barring a hiking team, a few people walking their dogs and the odd surfer, we basically had the stretch of beach to ourselves.  It was just perfect!

Table mountain, in all of its glory was the perfect back drop.  We really are privileged to live in such a beautiful place and be able to call it home!

Thank you Smith family for a fun morning!  It was wonderful meeting you and getting a little glimpse into your lives.  Enjoy the photos!
