Yup - they are both called Claire...and they both enjoy horses! 

I shot a wedding in St Francis Bay this past weekend, and decided to spend the remainder of the week with my sister in East London.  I was so glad that I agreed to be up at the crack of dawn to catch this sunrise for a shoot with the Claires...what a breath taking way to start a day. Although we were only 10 minutes from East London - it felt like I was out in the middle of the African bush. (sound track to The Lion King plays in the background!) :)
 
 
Maya has the sweetest little smile that totally melts hearts.  She is going to be such a beauty when she grows up....
 
 
I spent a lovely afternoon at the Botanical Gardens with my friends Linda, Julie and Pearl...and their beloved dogs.  The dogs had a great time, and so did we.

I have NEVER seen a couple of boys have such fun with a lab.  Jane's Labrador, Sophie, has to win the award for patience.  Leo pulled her tail, Max jumped on her back - basically rugby tackling her on the trampoline - yet this dog was so gentle with them.  What a wonderful family dog.  Jane, it was so great to see you - you've had a huge impact on my life and I love you very much.

Jane has this way of entertaining her boys with treasure hunts...it is the CUTEST thing to watch. The hat and patch go on, Jane takes the chest outside with a sweetie inside, and then the boys begin their pirate search! What fun!
