What a breezy and warm evening we had on Bloubergstrand (‘blue mountain beach’). I photographed Monique and Quinton’s wedding several years ago, and they’ve since had two adorable little girls. They live in Dubai and have family in South Africa, so they try and fit in one or two trips a year. It was lovely to see them all again and spend some time running around on the beach and capturing some family moments. I started off doing their shoot, and then later their family joined in for some sunset photos. Blouberg is a great area for family shoots on the beach, and it has lovely soft sand to run on and shows off our majestic Table Mountain. It’s a popular area for kite surfers, who travel from all over the world to enjoy the long stretch of the Atlantic coast. If you’re visiting the area, head to “Eden On The Bay“. It has a large play area for children as well as a variety of restaurants and cafes.
Tips for your family shoot: Bring along some wet wipes, snacks, water, and a big beach towel to put all your things on as well as a change of clothing for your children.
