Pick a day. Any day. Let’s say a Tuesday. And a date. Let’s go for the 12th. This is how that day goes – up at 5.00am, tea or coffee, Hel prepares lunches, I take the dog for a walk (okay I miss the walk here and there). 6.50am Hel does the school drop-offs x 3. I start working. 3.00pm school pick-ups and extra-mural activities start. They go on until 7.00pm, 8.00pm, 9.00pm. Squeeze in supper preparation in between. Do homework, catch up a bit. I work again until midnight-ish. Bed. Next day, same story. Saturdays and Sundays – school sport, weddings, extra-mural activities. And all of a sudden it’s Tuesday again. That’s the very, very brief version. And we are not alone – most families go through something similar. Now let’s go to the Easter Weekend. Whew, it was rough. I headed off to Oubos for Kyle and Elani’s wedding, came back, spent a day with the family, started working, shot another wedding in Cape Town and then it was time to head up to PE again for Charles and Riana’s wedding. But on the way there, there was one small technical issue – I had to photograph a family and then a Trash the Dress. This time Helen came with me so off we went, stopped in Heidelberg for the obligatory biltong purchase and then pushed through to Knysna. As is my way, I wanted to do one final scout around before the shoots so we headed off here, there and everywhere. Which texasgoldengirl.com/fluconazole/ wasn’t without mishaps because at one point we got seriously lost in a local village. A slight bit of panic set in at one stage as these three ‘bros’ came walking towards us in a scene straight out of a movie, but we managed to smile nervously and they happily helped us out and onto the correct route deep into the Knysna Forest. Anyway, back to family life. It’s hectic, busy and frenetic, so when Hel and myself have a chance to break away we take full advantage of the situation. Off we went to the Knysna Waterfront, had a look around for a spot to have some supper and then decided (as we always do for some strange reason, to go to the Spur). But as we walked out of the Waterfront a sign caught my eye: ‘All you can eat for R99-00.’ And so it came to pass that Hellie and myself sat down at Wu’s Chinese Restaurant. When it came to leaving it was problematic standing up. Spring rolls, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Dim Sum, Chow Mein, Sushi, Sweet and Sour Beef. We ate um, a lot. It was absolutely fantastic. The next morning we met Anzelle, Rob, their folks, Martha the nanny and little Ashton for the shoot. We kicked off in the Waterfront and then headed through to Brenton to finish things off. It was a brilliant day with Knysna turning out in her finest for a very happy shoot. Here are a few of their photos.
