Sugar Cane, Sunset, Big Waves and a Sweet Family | Mauritius Holiday Photographer

One of the things I love most about my job as a Mauritius family photographer is getting to meet people from all over the world. This lovely & sweet international family traveled from where they're living in Africa for a holiday in Mauritius and drove from the North to me in the West for a fun-filled photo session in one of my favorite locations. We played next to the sugar cane fields and then moved to Tamarin Bay where we all had a blast during high tide with big waves - and we all got very wet! It was well worth it. I felt so happy after my time with them. I hope they come back next year.

If you're planning a holiday in Mauritius, it's a great idea to have a family photo shoot while you're here. You need to be in the photos too! I love photographing the love and connection of a family in the most beautiful locations in Mauritius. Contact me and let's chat!

A Newborn Beauty | Mauritius Newborn Photographer

Remember my gorgeous family of three and their family maternity session in the sugar cane field? Well, now they're a family of four! It's such an honor to be in the space of a family who have just welcomed a new addition. Things are peaceful, yet hectic, full of wonder and deep love and also worry. The parents are getting to know and care for the new little one while learning to balance their attention between the new arrival and the first born, who isn't always as happy as everyone else is about this new person in his life. But Natasha and Jacques were handling it all beautifully and this little "big" brother Jake was doing just fine when I was there. He is such a sweet heart! And look how beautiful his new 7 days old sister Erin is. Congrats to the Nel family, now complete. Thanks for inviting me in to witness it all.

Sunset in the Sugar Cane: A gorgeous, growing family & maternity session | Mauritius Family Photographer

 The Nel family is not only stunning, but also so full of love. During our session, I kept looking at the back of my camera and exclaiming "Omg, that's SO gorgeous!" The light! The love! I often tell my clients before we begin that I want them to just relax and connect with each other and have a good time just being together and that I will capture that love and connection. The Nels were a dream. And look at the smiles on that cute little Jake! I wish them all the best as they become a family of four. I'll be seeing them next week for some newborn cuddles (oh, and photographs!)

A Secret Wedding | Mauritius Elopement Photographer

I can finally ask you: Wanna see a secret wedding photo session? Peter and Marion told not a soul - not even their parents - that they were eloping to Mauritius. After 6 years together, it probably wouldn’t have been all that surprising - but still! A secret wedding! Just the two of you (and your officiant, witness and photographer). How romantic! The wedding ceremony was quiet and lovely, but rainy, at the beautiful B & B The River House in Tamarin Bay, so we had to postpone their couple's photo shoot until the next day. They had a special spot in mind, just past Le Morne, which they had seen in their travels a few days before. We had perfect weather and gorgeous moments they'll remember forever, and some laughs about some scary looking sea cucumbers.  And listen to how they announced they'd gotten married: they took one of the photos from our session and emailed it to a company in Germany that would print it on a post card and send it to all of their friends and family within 24 hours. So unique….can you imagine the reactions of their families?! These two newlyweds absolutely put the “Love” in “Love from Mauritius”. I hope they come back for their anniversary next year.

Forest Family & Maternity Session | Mauritius Family Photographer

One of my favorite new things in my business is having an in-person planning session with a photo client. We get to know each other and by the time we have the session, we're all relaxed and comfortable to just be ourselves. Also, we can cover so many more details and collaborate on ideas much more so than in emails. For example, what kind of images do they dream of having? What will they wear? Which location? Which walls will the canvases go on? And at this gorgeous family's planning session we discovered that they'd actually like to have their session in the National Park as opposed to the beach, as they originally thought. Yay! I love the beach but there's something so special about these woods...the quiet, the coolness, the immensity of the trees. And this is a very special time in their lives, before they become a family of four. Life is about to change for all of them as they welcome a sweet new baby...but especially for this adorable little guy who is about to become a big brother. He's going to be so great.

Personal Blog Post - KJ's gymnastics show

Last night was KJ's gymnastics show so I took the opportunity to make a few portraits of her in her costume. It was a bit of a drama after the show was cancelled the day before due to rain and then uncancelled and rescheduled at a different location. She and her classmates performed a dance/gymnastics routine in which they acted as dancing dolls. They were so good and I was a beaming mama. It was so nice to see what she's been up to every Tuesday for the past year!

The A. Family: Mauritius Family Photographer

Corinne contacted me all the way from Canada about a planning a Mauritius family photography session. They were bringing their adorable baby girl home to meet the family here and also squeezing in a few days at a resort. So of course we planned the session at the resort. While I was on my out the door to the session, the hotel management informed Corinne that they would not allow an outside photographer into the resort. Boo. Being that Mauritius has so many beautiful beaches and locations for family photo sessions, it wasn't a problem and we rescheduled for the next week. One of my favorite locations did not let us down. This sweet little family absolutely adore their baby girl and so do all of the of grandparents who came along for a few photos as well. What a special time to have three generations on both sides of the family come together from both sides of the world.

Early morning beach session

I love working with repeat clients. This wonderful family is going back home after spending a year here on our tiny island and wanted some memories to take home with them. And they wanted a family photo at a unique landmark in Black River. Can you spot it? 
Wishing them all the best...bon voyage! xx

Sunrise family session

This family was such a joy to spend the morning with. Their sweet baby girl is SO adorable and so very much adored by her parents.
The early bird catches the worm - or light, in this case! It's a good thing we started at 6:30 as it poured with rain the rest of the day.
