Birthday Details…

Zulu Queen

“It’s different cultures that make the world go round at the end of the day” -S. Fox

Story: Thembi is a dear person to our Family and she is very dedicated to her own, she has been taking care of her ailing Mother for a very very long time now and these photos were a gift to Mama Rosa who was dear to us as well…Thembi was never able to have photos taken professionally and this (plus capturing the beauty of the Zulu culture) was just an honour to gift Mama Rosa (which she loved! )…unfortunately Thembi lost her Mom on Sunday at the age of 92. So even though speaking to her on the phone was all we had of Mama Rosa…we know her beauty will live through Thembi…and these photos are proof. God bless you sweet Mama Rosa.

On a personal note, I think I have something for dining-room tables! They just so beautiful and change things up. No space is out of question, that’s what I love about Photography!

A child fantasy image…very happy to have created this storybook image for little Aneke with her love for animals and the outdoors…and the pure excitement she gave seeing this image (with her toys and loves) for the first time made my heart SO happy! Amazing little girl.
