Dance Concert 2016 [Pretoria Event Photographer]

The Linda Steyn Badenhorst Dance School hosted it’s yearly concert and prize giving a few weekends ago.  The children and teachers Linda and Elize worked hard all year and this was the perfect occasion to sit back and witness what they have learned this year.

It was lovely to see so many parents and grandparents come out to support the kids.

Thank you very much to the Dance School for giving so much love and guidance to these children.

Just a few favourites.  All the images can be viewed under the client proofs.  We do apologise for the watermark across every images in the gallery.  This is to prevent people from copying our low res images for free from our website, instead of ordering their set of prints through us.

Reach for a Dream hosts Queen for a Day [Pretoria Event Photographer]

There is no better way to spent a Saturday then photographing a Reach for a Dream Function. Especially if it is a Queen for a Day Function.

The girls had a lovely time and I am sure they will remember this day for ever.

As usual, a couple of lovely people and organisations sponsored gifts, services and their time: Featherbrooke Children, Protea Hotel Hatfield, Jimnettes and Snr Queen of Africa – Angelica Nortjé.

Just a few of the highlights.  Al the images can be viewed under the client proofs.

Operation Healing Hands 2016 [Pretoria Event Photographer]

Operation Healing Hands is a wonderful non-profit organisation that assisted 14 people without medical aid, with some much needed surgery.  This wonderful initiative was started by a few wonderful docters in celebration of Madiba Day.  With the support of Jacaranda FM’s Good Morning Angels, this non-profit grew into a large and successful project. Please take the time to browse through their website and join their facebook page to keep up to date with their projects.

On the 19th September Operation Healing Hands held an event at the Pretoria Country Club to thank everyone that was involved and assisted with the project.

Reach for a Dream / SAPS / Hi-Risk – Madiba Day [Pretoria Event Photographer]

This past weekend Reach for a Dream, SAPS and Hi-risk combined forces to create a fun filled day for the children for Mandela Day 2016.

The Reach for a Dream Team asked me again to photograph the event for them and of course I agreed.

It was a lovely winters day full of smiling children’s faces.

I have tried to limit the amount of photos on the blog, but with a day full of so much entertainment it was impossible to narrow the moments down to just a few.  So bare with me.  All the images can be viewed under the client proofs.

Adam Tas was there to entertain young and old and to just get everybody in the right mood for the show to follow.  He was accompanied on electrical guitar by Wouter from the SAPS.

How cute are the 4 month old puppies from the K9 unit.

For the main event SAPS Brooklyn and Garsfontein as well as Hi-Risk presented an awesome show.  It was a simulated Rhino Poaching complete with bad guys, helicopters, K9 unit and more.

My heart almost stopped when I saw the helicopter making its appearance behind the trees with a dog and a man hanging out the door.  The next moment they proceeded to ab-sail down to the ground where they apprehended a “poacher”.

Baby Khethi turns 1

Darling Khethi is 1!  Feels like just the other day that I photographed her as a newborn baby.  And now she is 1 and walking!

She had a lovely birthday party with all her friends and family present.  She is one spoiled little princess.

Just a few favourites.  All the images can be viewed under the client proofs.
