I met and photographed the van der Westhuizen family in April 2013 so I was thrilled when a few weeks back, an e-mail arrived from Karen saying that they wanted a family shoot.
We chatted for a while via mail and the brief was clear – Since some of them would be moving abroad, they wanted to document their love for Cape Town as they enjoyed their time together.
Of course we could have just hot footed our way to a few landmarks and posed for the shot and then moved on, but in and amongst it all, they wanted to enjoy the day and have a bit of fun. So that’s what we did. We had fun while we made our way around the CBD.
They’re such a warm, kind family (and a pretty good looking bunch) – Ashton and I loved spending the afternoon with them… All of them. The kids are so well mannered – A true testament to this loving family.
We still have one more stop before the shoot is complete, but for now, I want you to get re-aquainted with the lovely van der Westhuizen family.
