Family Photographs Majik Forest

How lovely to have taken family photographs of these wonderful people!  We shot Annene and Werner’s wedding a few years back, and now their little family has grown.  It’s always an honour for us when our clients contact us a few years after their wedding day to photograph new milestones in their lives.

After having to cancel their family shoot due to rain the week before, we were very happy that the sun came out to play!

We met up with Annene, Werner and their 2 handsome little boys, Malan and Erigh at the Majik Forest (no that is not a typo – that IS how you spell it, don’t ask why?)

We spent the most wonderful afternoon with them. They are all so photogenic!  When taking family photographs, we far more prefer to capture the interactions between family members rather than to have too many staged shots.   All the giggles and stolen glances, and often times with the younger ones, the tears too!  Luckily Erigh was a real little charmer, and there were very few tears and way more giggles!

The kids had a ball, and with a tiny bit of bribery from mom and dad, big brother Malan was a super little ‘model!’ Baby Erigh was fascinated by his surroundings and was so happy to be in the long grass!

Thank you to the lovely Egen family for allowing us into your lives for an afternoon. It was so much fun!

What we’ll always remember about their lifestyle shoot

  • The fact that well-adjusted families do exist and that love conquers all.
  • We were reminded how different all individuals are, and that as photographers we need to learn the art of capturing someone’s most beautiful moments that tell the story of who they really are.
  • Little boys will be boys! They like to run, get dirty and throw things.
  • Creepy crawlies do live in long grass!
