Cape Town Family Shoot

The Luyt Family


What fun we had during this Cape Town family shoot of the lovely Luyt family.  We have grown so fond of them all.  They almost feel like friends rather than clients.

Not only this, it’s so awesome being in the presence of a family that has such a strong bond between them.  In this day and age, where so many marriages seem doomed before they even start, it’s wonderful to see that the Luyts have what it takes for a winning happy family recipe!

We were thrilled when Lee contacted us to do another family shoot for them.  She and Mike would have the whole brood together for Greg & Mystine’s wedding, so it would be the perfect time for some Cape Town family shoot again!

This time around we chose a beach setting at Llandudno.  These Luyts are a wild crowd, and they need space for their crazy antics!

How special to have Gran and Grandpa along for the shoot too.  We are in awe of them!  They are full of smiles and fun and don’t struggle at all to keep up with their energetic offspring!  These two were celebrating a very special milestone – their 60th wedding anniversary!  And we only found out later, that it was actually Lee’s birthday too, so special times all around!

It was an absolutely perfect early evening down on the beach.  It was warm, there was not a breath of wind and the beach was not too crowded at all.   We had an absolute blast with you all again, with lots of fun and laughs along the way!  You really are a special lot, and it’s really inspiring being in your presence!

Thank you for choosing us for your Cape Town family shoot.  It was great as usual!
