If you know me at all, you will know that I am obsessed with photo’s. I get so much joy in snapping happy (and sometimes not so happy) memories of my kids whether it be on my phone or with the big camera. I am also a firm believer in putting pictures up on my walls and as such my house has plenty of frames up with snaps we’ve taken over the years. Parties, family, our wedding and of course our beautiful blessings : Kade and Gems.
I have created a picture wall under our loft area next to our fireplace and my mom bought me a reconditioned door picture frame about four years ago. I have just never found the right photo’s to go in there and it is now a standing joke among us that those frames are always destined to say sold…
WELL NOT ANYMORE!
I was contacted by my friend Mandy-Lee Miller (Pregnant in Cape Town) to work on a #MakingMemories campaign in collaboration with Kids Emporium who ran the making memories campaign in their stores in July whereby they teamed up with local photographers to give their customers some awesome memories.
I don’t know if you’ve ever shopped at a Kids Emporium store but go with lots of money because you will want to buy all the things! What I love about Kids Emporium is that they think local is lekker and supporting local is a huge part of their ethos.
I got teamed up with the amazing Celia Van Niekerk who gave me a family studio shoot to review. All I wanted from the shoot was to get three decent images of the family so that I can finally fill those frames and stop the “sold” jokes. I don’t know how she did it (Gemma was being her usual Hurricane self and Kade was doing his cheese smile thing) but Celia got some awesome shots… now the problem is I can’t choose which images to use!
Help a girl out – tell me in the comments which images you love most!
