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!
