The Heartbreak Grape

Pinot Noir has been described as the “Heartbreak Grape” with good reason. Originating from the Burgundy region of France, this fragile grape has proved to be one of the most difficult grape varietals to make wine from. It is fragile, temperamental, and tests the skill of the winemaker to the limit. The winemaker will often fail to produce a good wine from Pinot Noir, hence leading to much “heartbreak”.

A wedding with a vintage twist

_DSC4456-2We recently assisted Anel, a good friend and fellow photographer, with shooting a wedding here in the beautiful Cape. At the pre-wedding consultation with the couple they indicated that they would like a vintage twist to their photographs. We were happy to oblige and soon afterwards got down to planning on how to do it.

Another photo-shoot with Kevin

_DSC5377From time to time we like to get together with Kevin, our good friend and fellow photographer, and enjoy a solid photo shoot in his studio. Until Kevin’s health put a stop to it, it was quite common for us to start a serious shoot early evening that went on till almost daybreak next morning!

Motherhood and pregnancy

_DSC4110-01Most will agree that parenthood, and motherhood in particular, is not easy. Apart from the tremendous responsibilities that it brings about it also takes it toll on a more personal level from both father and mother – parenthood is truly a life-changing event.
