I first saw Kate in a picture on Facebook. From that moment I knew I had to photograph her. I met up with Kate’s family at their quirky family home in Fish Hoek to follow Kate around on a day in their lives.
It was her Dad’s birthday around the time we did the shoot so Kate did some baking preparations for some cupcakes for her Dad. She was so welcoming of me in their space and included me in the festivities immediately, even offering me (the camera) a cupcake. Kate has the biggest and most lovely heart and personality and I think it comes across in these images. Until the end when Kate decided it was enough and the paparazzi should stop photographing now. I absolutely love the story these images tell! I hope you do too.
