I met up with lovely restauranteur from India, Johanne Mantosh at the sophisticated Victoria & Alfred Hotel several days before her family photoshoot, to talk through their session. We chatted over some mint tea in the hotel’s dining area while enjoying the view of the harbor. Johanne told me that her family were all there to enjoy her and her Mom’s birthdays, and they had never had a shoot done of them all together. They had a full itinerary for their vacation in South Africa, so the day of their shoot, the only time they could make it was lunchtime. The light was quite bright on Camps Bay beach, however, being the fun group that they are, it actually worked really well with their trendy sunglasses. A dynamic, warm and interesting family, that absolutely loved South Africa.
Camps Bay is the ‘Miami’ of Cape Town, with its lush hovering palm trees lining the beach. Contemporary cafes, restaurants, and bars nestle below the towering Twelve Apostles Mountain range, which we were so blessed to have in clear view for the shoot!
