What makes your heart soar? I would have to say simple joy! The joy of little ones laughing as mum and dad play tickle games, or ring a ring a Rosie. When Mum blows raspberries in her baby’s soft peachy belly and bub snorts with laughter. Or when Dad chases his little one playing I’m coming to catch you and his little one squeals in delight.
Simple joys surround our lives in many ways. Some joys are very easy to see like the sun as it rises announcing God’s grace on us giving us a brand new day. Other joys are not so obvious but none the less God fills our lives with them.
The Blignaut Family were an absolute joy to photograph. Racheal is not only very beautiful but the sweetest wife and mumma. Rouan is a lucky guy!! Rowen was equally fun and engaging with his stunning wife and too precious with his little ones. There is a sweet connection that is very tangible with this precious family!
Humour in the Unexpected
Another simple joy is finding your humour in an unexpected situation… trying to get one last image of the family all together, I’m crouching down in the most glamorous of positions, take the shot only to jump at what felt like burning on my bottom. Well, I was invading the space of a green ants nest and they weren’t too keen on my bottom crushing their nest. Was it worth having a buttom cheek on fire? Totally! I would do it over for you guys, Rouan and Rachael? Absolutely! What a fun experience with you and your precious little ones.
Gorgeous Dreamy Light
Now let’s just gush over how gorgeous Rachael is in that dreamy golden sunlight. It’s what golden hour is made of! I could not have asked for more dreamy light!!
