‘My Favourite Things’ – Babies & Kiddies Market

On the 24th August, 2013, I was asked to take photographs of the Babies & Kiddies Market at Lourensford Wine Estate called ‘My Favourite Things‘ by Helena van den Berg who organises and runs the markets at various different venues once a month.  I was so pleased, because this Saturday it was at one of my most favourite venues.  I also tried to promote my Rhythmic Gym and Dance Birthday Parties for Kiddies there, plus tried to raise funds for the Helderberg Kanga Babies and Moms.  In an earlier post you would have seen some of the beautiful children that I got to photograph. In this post I am sharing a few of the images I took of the various exhibitors that were there that day.
