I’ll tell you what the best thing about a family photoshoot is – you have absolutely no idea whatsoever what is going to happen when, where, how or why. It’s actually a bit like conducting a science experiment where you chuck in bit of this, a bit of that and then wait for something to happen. Sometimes you get this really odd smell floating in from somewhere (and look around for the guilty party). At other times you get this enormous bang, a flash of light and end up on your backside. In the case of the Sales family, it rained. And then it rained some more. And then after the third time it rained I was left wondering whether this little photographic science experiment of ours was ever going to happen. But thankfully the clouds did clear after 2 weeks of messing up our best laid plans and we headed down to Noordhoek Beach for a slice of wholesome family fun. And guess what? The Sales mob brought their dog along for a bit of Sunday morning R&R with the friendly photographer. What a lovely surprise! A happy, medicaments dangereux cymbalta jumpy, jovial, ‘I want to play in the water Mr. Photographer-man and then shake myself dry so stand nearer to me will you’ kind of dog. And that was a really cool idea, because Milo got straight into the action by knocking young Gracie over before running off to have a sniff at (or of) another dog or two. So the scene was set and off Craig and Philippa (mom and dad) and Gracie and Elle (daughter and daughter went). And it all went off brilliantly. Gracie and Elle are two very lovely little girls, full of giggles and chitter-chatter and infectious enthusiasm. It was great. After the beach we headed up to the Noordhoek paddocks (careful not to stand in any um, horse landmines) and took a few photos there as well. And you will NEVER guess what we found there! We found a REAL, proper, full-on, flatout, Fairy Garden – complete with a mushroom umbrella-table thingy as well. Now that’s a great way to spend a Sunday as far as I’m concerned. Here are some of their photos, I hope you enjoy them.
