3 Generations: My granny, my mom and me..

Ahh… I’m feeling all warm and fuzzy looking at these pictures again. Let me introduce you to my mom (Annerine) and my Granny. They came to visit me in June and I drove them all over Cape Town. Almost a month before they came however, I scheduled this shoot with Catherine Mac.

Now this was a shoot just waiting to happen. During 2010, when I still worked in our shop and blog stalked each and every worthy Cape Town photographer, I came across Catherine’s site. There were a few togs whose sites I frequented on a daily basis (yes I did say daily) and they include Nikki Meyer, Christine Meintjes, Lizelle Lotter, Du Wayne, Jani B and Sybrand Cillié. I know, it’s all ‘da big’ guys, but hey.. I aim high :)

Two of them however stood out. The first was Jean Pierre Uys. I fantasized about flying him to Mpumalanga to shoot my wedding someday. Which I doubt will happen anyway because there seems to be no single men left on earth. The second photographer was Catherine Mac. I started following her when she still mainly photographed families and it was during the time when I also only photographed families. That’s how I got into this game and I admired her because shooting families ain’t easy y’all! And she had it!

So, when I got over my fear of actually being IN FRONT of the camera, I booked her :) And didn’t she do a great job!? Oops.. I’m talking too much. Go look at the pictures!I’ve got a pretty mom, hey? ♥ Just so you know, I did her hair :)I’ve always wanted a shot like this! Thanx Catherine!Ooo… definately my favourite one of me.And Miss Photographer Lady! I requested this one and she handed her camera to my mom to take it! haha!
