My friend and I met this morning for a delicious brunch in Dempsey Hill, so we grabbed the opportunity to snatch a few snaps of Cam. She is growing so much now and getting the CUTEST facial expressions. It's just such a shame that babies have to sleep so much - I would have loved to have played more with her!
Summer is without a doubt my favourite season.....slip slops, sun cream, beach, Loopy lollies, surf boards on roof racks, sea gulls, joe cools, denim shorts, salty hair and sandy feet, hot cheeks and tan lines ♥
In Singapore - every day is Summer. Although nothing like Durban's, I'm still grateful for the toasty days. I haven't had a winter in 3 years and only wear a jersey to the movies! BLISS.
Here's a little tribute to my 3 years of Summer.
Thanx Oliver and Abbey for modeling for me. They love the beach as much as I do and were absolute champs!!
When Ruth told me that Emma loved to swim - I just knew we had to snap a few of her in the water - and let me tell you this...that kid is a true mermaid.
Our 2 hours together were packed with jumping, swinging, swimming and laughing.
What a day!
Dan decided to propose to Emma at the Botanical gardens - and further surprise her by having family and friends waiting at the Gazebo to celebrate with champagne and strawberries.
The weather was perfect, the sun set was romantic and everyone had a great time.
Good job Dan!
Maya has the sweetest little smile that totally melts hearts. She is going to be such a beauty when she grows up....
Monkey boy is the ONLY way I'll remember little Benjamin. He was such a sweetie with soooo much energy. He was jumping, rolling, hugging, singing, picking banana's off the wall, then actually eating bananas...SHEW!
But he loves his little brother Yuri (happiest child in the world by the way) and they were such fun to photograph.
The boys are Belgian (speak Flemish) and I was thrilled to understand parts of their conversation from my limited Afrikaans I learnt at school. This has to be one of the greatest benefits of photographing in Singapore - the exposure to so many different nationalities and cultures.
This little girl has only seen me with a big black box in front of my face. I'm either doing serious damage here and we're going to end up with a camera-phobic child, or she's going to be one very comfortable child model!
Anyway - here's her THIRD set of photos (she turned 5 weeks old today).
Again, the photos have a grey tint to them (courtesy of weebly), but check them out on my face book page if you'd like: http://www.facebook.com/DerrynSemplePhotography.
First resolution for 2012 - get a proper website/blog.
Nicola and Simon are both from New Zealand and have just had their first little boy in Singapore.
Nicola told me before hand that Simon was not to hot on having his photo shot. He is after all a typical big 'rugby thug' - but I must say that he held that boy in his arms with as much ease as I can imagine him holding a rugby ball before a pass. (OOOH, I just had a photo shoot idea!!)
Simon - I kinda lied when I said I'd just do one or two with you, sorry! ;) But I think they look great, and I hope that in years to come you both treasure these photos and remember this special time with your little boy.
You might remember the cute maternity shoot that I did with Helen and Jason last month...well - it was a GIRL and she is beautiful!!
Little Cameron was born with a full head of healthy dark hair and the most active little arms I've seen. I'm sure she is going to be a salsa dancer when she grows up.
The first few photos were taken at hospital when she was not even a day old, and the rest were taken when she was almost 2 weeks old.
Too adorable for words.
I had a lovely morning with the beautiful Mathilda. Her mom Ruth was busy with a masseuse having a postnatal massage (which everyone raves about by the way!) so we had a champion Dad helping us with the posing :)
I'll be doing a second shoot with Mathilda, Mom, Dad and big sister next month and am REALLY looking forward to it.
Watch this space....
P.S - I apologize for the funny grey tone to these images, weebly does this. If you look at them on my Facebook Page you'll see that they have a much warmer colouring.
