Searching for Tinkerbell

At the beginning of September I started photographing Families that had entered their children in the recent ‘My Favourite Things’ – Babies & Kiddies Market at Lourensford at the end of August. The first family who I photographed was a past pupil and her family. Lecia, used to take Modern Dance classes with me when she was a tiny little girl and we have since connected with each other again. She entered her beautiful shy little daughter, Samantha, in the contest to raise funds for the Kanga Moms and Babies of the Helderberg and this is the result of their shoot on a cold windy and overcast day at the Helderberg Nature Reserve. Samantha, got a little bit niggly during the shoot and so mom and dad told her to search for Tinkerbell, which kept her going throughout the shoot. They eventually found Tinkerbell when they got home. 😉

Please leave a message if you like or even if you are interested in having a family shoot done for your family. You can contact me at laurette9@hotmail.com for more information or go to my website.

Cuddling up to Daddy to keep warm.



Samantha’s dress and outfit was Samantha’s choice and I was so glad that she chose what she did because it brightened up the day with those beautiful colours and having her little ‘friend’ along  just made the day!  Here is Sam working with Dad along the boardwalk alongside the pond.



Peekaboo, while Mom and Dad give her a loving kiss on the forehead.



When I met Lecia again after so many years with Samantha, it was amazing for me to see the similarities of Lecia and Sam at a similar age.



Okay, let’s go and find Tinkerbell!



Mom and daughter, Sam, having a cuddle to keep each other warm!



I love this one of Sam. She is such a shy little thing and this image shows that beauty!



Sam looking for Tinkerbell amongst the plants and vegetation.



A very special family who love one another dearly!



Mom and Dad stealing a few moments for themselves.



Can you see the squirrel up there ……….?



Sam:  “So now where is Tinkerbell?”  Lecia (Mom):  “We will go home and look for her there”
