Oh my goodness I take my hat of to this amazing little family! Michaela and John D are both doctors in the Transkei, and were on their way down to Stellies for the holidays with their adorable little girls Peyton and Eva. Michaela contacted me to ask if I could do the shoot for them in Stellies, but since I got married in October I have relocated to Jeffrey’s Bay. They were passing that way en route to Stellies so why not do the shoot in Jeffrey’s Bay? An excellent idea we thought- we could do a late afternoon shoot. BUT because J-Bay’s beach faces the east it means that to get the golden hour light one needs the sunrise and not sunset.
The shoot was therefore scheduled for 5am. (Ridiculous I know- for me at least who likes her morning sleep ins). However- the reason I take my hat off to the Lotz’s is because they woke up at 3am to get ready and drive through from Uitenhage to be in time for the shoot. Not only were they on time (with two kids I might add) but they were also looking amazing that time of morning!
John D and Michaela- your family is gorgeous and you make the most amazing parents. Fanie and I had such a great time with you and can’t get over how cute Evie and Peyton are! My word! May the Lord continue to bring so much joy and happiness into your lives through your kids and may He also give you the wisdom and strength to raise them to be such kind, gentle and wonderful people like you yourselves are. Sending so much love xxx
Dankie Fanie my lief vir ‘n vroeg opstaan op jou afnaweek en vir al jou hulp! Waardeer jou so baie! xxx
