Putting you in the picture: a shoot with a fantastic Joburg family photographer

April 6, 2016

A few weeks ago Joburg photographer Robyn Davie got in touch with me about doing a family shoot with me. I'm always after beautiful personal pics for my blogs and personal albums, so I said "yes" almost as quickly as a camera shutter. I had also just seen Robyn's beautiful shoot of the awesome Malherbe family and their twins, and Robyn's natural and clean pics caught my eye even before she got in touch.


Robyn is as wonderful and down-to-earth as she is a talented photographer, and she completely put my camera-shy husband and me at ease, while making my son giggle and act as natural as possible. She also helped to control my two dogs, who had other ideas in the Delta Park other than staying on their leads.

Robyn uses natural light when shooting, and has a portfolio full of beautiful family, maternitiy, newborn, portrait (great for corporate) and couple shoots. You can see her photo blog here, which also includes some photography tips and editing tutorials (even for those of us who aren't experts or skilled at Lightroom).


Next week I'm giving away a photo shoot with Robyn worth more than R2 300, so watch out here for info on how to win. In the meantime, you can follow Robyn on Facebook and Instagram.
