This family have had their family photographs done annually since their twin girls were 2 years old. These precious girls just get sweeter and prettier each time I see them-they are now 4years old!
The rainy season in Johannesburg is always a risky time for photo shoots but it’s also one of the most picturesque times as everything is lush and green. We met up on this afternoon and the skies looked a little ominous, but we carried on with the shoot even with the winds picking up. It was only at our last spot where the weeping willow trees were blowing all over and a few raindrops started falling on our heads that we decided to finish up our last shots.
These girls have grown so much since I met them and it’s very special to be apart of seeing the growth of a family.
As a mom, I am in the height of parenting a “terrible two year old” and I often get lost in the days rolling into each other as one tantrum melts into the next tantrum and you start looking at your life as putting out fires or trying distraction techniques. It is encouraging to see that kids do grow older and learn to deal with their out of control emotions & there is an end to this frustration – but I’ve also got to realise that in between there are still those precious memories spent with our children to treasure.
