LIFESTYLE | TSHABALALA FAMILY | JOHANNESBURG

This shoot was a full circle moment for me. Pippa was my lecturer in college (if I remember correctly in 2006, which is 15 years ago.) Wow. What?! Lol. That just made me feel old.

In those 15 years I have watched Pippa go from having a few tattoos to having many, many tattoos. Change her hair what feels like a hundred times (but still look the same age as 15 years ago). Marry her wonderful husband, Sekwa. Be on a TV show (that I would watch from the comfort of my couch at my parents place). And have not one, but two of the most beautiful, polite and fearless kids I have had the pleasure of meeting. Both of the boys personalities are so different yet they shine in their own unique, quirky ways and this shows in the images. Over the years I have photographed some portraits of Pippa and Elio, back when Zak was a tiny baby. And now, on a recent trip back to Joburg, I got to document the whole family.

While I was editing these images all of this was running through my head. So yes, doing this shoot was a full circle moment for me, for sure.
