The World Travelers | Heading for South Africa

Nicki, Kate and Sparky before going through security to board their Virgin Atlantic flight to London, and then head down to South Africa. As I write this, they should be getting ready to land in Johannesburg, and then later to Durban to see Granny Moira and Grandpa Tony.  I pray it’s been a safe journey …

Princess dress Collection

I made a very very rare appearance in the studio (Thanks Errol for sharing your gorgeous space with me!) I wanted to capture a high-key grouping of portraits of Kate wearing each of her hand-made princess dresses made by her Granny Moira.

Playball – yesterday

Kate has found a weekly sports activity group called Playball, literally 300 yards up the road from Tony & Moira’s house. (And this program is incredible for kids). All day yesterday morning all she could ask is:  “When are we going to Playball?” (not til 3). She took a nap and we could barely wake …

Busy Halloween Day

We had a fantastic Halloween weekend. Kate dressed up as Cinderella, wearing a dress hand-made by Granny Moira in S. Africa. But after Nicki bought a witch hat as a last-minute costume for the party hosted by Jason and Jodi, Kate had to get a miniature witch hat, too.  She of course wore it as …
