I recently had the absolute pleasure of doing a family shoot with the Van der Merwe family. This shoot had all of my favourite elements…a beautiful family with two little girls, stunning outdoor setting and TWO DOGS!
It was an absolutely perfect morning with a super happy family! Unfortunately there is a sad side to this story as well. Nicolize and Francois realised when Lana was about 5 weeks old that she wasn’t reacting to noises…they took her for tests to the doctors and were informed that beautiful little Lana was born completely deaf. Luckily with today’s technology there is some hope and will they be taking her for a cochlear operation on the 12th of November. This is an extremely expensive operation and all their friends and family are doing their bit to try to raise funds for this procedure. If you would like to make any contribution or get involved please contact me and I can give you their details.
Thanks Nicolize and Francois for allowing me to shoot your beautiful family and being so much fun! x
