Sneak Preview - Sharon & Chris {Wedding}

Yesterday I had the honour of shooting a very special wedding.

Meerendal was the perfect setting for a beautiful wedding on a Friday afternoon. The occassion was shared with close family and friends. What made this wedding extra special to me was that it was my third for the Olivier family. Natasha and Bianca’s parents, Chris and Sharon got married.

Thank you, Chris and Sharon, for having me at your daughters’ weddings and now yours. I have enjoyed being part of all these momentous occasions of your lives and to see every beautiful next step. May you have a blessed and wonderful marriage.

Sneak Preview - Bianca & Arthur {Maternity}

Every shoot brings adventure and special memories, but I think to share in momentus occassions with your clients makes the job extra important.

I was priveliged enough to cover Bianca’s sister’s wedding, then Bianca and Arthur’s engagement, their wedding and now their first maternity shoot.

Bianca and Arthur, thank you for letting me tag along on your journey together. It has been a priceless ride so far.

Paul & Chantal’s Belly Journey {Maternity}

Dit is een van die lewe se mooiste wonderwerke.

Ek het die voorreg gehad om die vordering van Chantal se magie af te neem.

Daar was soveel kere wat ek nie kon ophou lag nie, dit het my altyd net meer opgewonde gemaak oor watter pragtige gesin dit gaan wees. Ek het tot Chantal en Paul se honde-kinders, Pretzel, Joey en Emma ontmoet.

Chantal en Paul, baie geluk met julle pragtige dogter, Arianne. God se seën vir julle as gesin. Baie dankie dat ek die belangrike “journey” van julle kon beleef en dat julle altyd soveel pret was om af te neem. Ek gaan ons sessies mis. x

Pic(k) of the week - A Mother’s Love {National Women’s Day}




Chantelle Fourie & her beautiful family. YSP

A mother’s love can conquer and overcome anything that life can bring you.

I met Chantelle in 2003 and from the first day she treated me like an old family friend. Her genuine kindness and warmth made a big impression on me. Chantelle and her husband, were blessed with two beautiful children. Their son, Hanno, was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy in August 2011. Hanno suffers from the same disease as Springbok, Joost van der Westhuizen. Please visit Hanno’s Facebook page and his website to read more about his condition or to show your support.

Chantelle’s strength and unconditional love through the difficult times has inspired me. She is an invincible mother and magnificent woman.

Pic(k) of the week - Courage {National Women’s Day}




Celebrating women that inspire & lead by example.

I am writing out of a cosy office while it is pouring outside. Feeling lucky that I am a woman, wife and daughter. From this week until the end of August I will share with you ladies that inspire me. The 9th of August is National Women’s Day.

I photographed this beautiful woman a while ago in my studio. Her story is personal, but I can tell you that it took a lot of courage for her to appear in her swimsuit. Her strength inspires me to be proud of my body.

If you would like to share your story on the women that inspire you, please email me at yolande@ysp.co.za. I would love to post it.

Wishing you a warm & happy weekend x

Pic(k) of the week - {Role models}







Kaylin looks up to her mom.

Lately I have noticed how people have become more negative about our country, international stars & life. I believe that we should stop looking to others to bring us happiness & rather look closer to home. Put your trust in role models you can believe in, people you know. Your father, mother, brother, friend, etc.

Live by example. Actions speak louder than words.

Happy Weekend x

YSP Studio Special {Book now}

Sophia

Dit is altyd interessant vir my hoe die lewe mens kan verras. Goeie dinge gebeur en dan gebeur daar soms slegte dinge. Klink vaag, maar dis hoe ek dit wil hou.

Sophia het oor my pad gekom omdat ‘n baie slegte ding in my lewe gebeur het. Sy was ondersteunend en sy het my nie eers geken nie. Dit is hoe ek vir Sophia leer ken het. ‘n Real mens, met opregte intensies.

Ek was so opgewonde toe sy my kontak vir ‘n fotosessie. Sophia wou net iets doen wat sy nooit sou doen nie en dit was ‘n fotosessie. Eerlik waar dink ek sy moes dit al lankal gedoen het. Mooi van binne en buite.

Sophia, dankie vir wie jy is en ek is seker almal wat jou ken deel my gedagte oor jou.

PS: Ek wil ook net dankie sê aan elke Kapenaar wat sy stoep met ons gedeel het. ;)

YSP Studio - Die De Milander Gesin

Dit was ‘n heerlike oggend fotosessie in die YSP Studio. Amelia en haar man, Francois, het hulle twee pragtige kinders, Mia & Anru gebring vir ‘n familie fotosessie. Die tyd het so vinnig gevlieg, omdat Mia & Anru so oulik saam gewerk het.

Amelia, baie dankie, ek het die shoot baie geniet. Julle is ‘n ster gesin.

Nika - ‘n klein Lente bloeiseltjie

Nika, het op ‘n koue Wintersmiddag, Lente na die YSP studio gebring.

Sy is 10 maande oud en baie vriendelik. Chanelle & Jacques, het Nika vir haar eerste fotosessie gebring, toe sy nege weke oud was. ‘n Regte klein dametjie. Nika is mal oor blommetjies en dis te oulik hoe fyn sy aan die blommetjies vat.

Nika - nege weke oud

Ek het die studio ligte afgesit en kameras geruil en net lekker op die grond gesit en skiet. Mal oor die volgende paar swart & wit foto’s.



















































Die Conradie Gesin

Ek was so opgewonde om Adél se klein juweeltjie, JD, te ontmoet. Siende dat sy eerste shoot by my was toe sy ma maar net drie maande swanger was met hom. Adél het my blogpost oor my Ouma Jessie gesien en besluit sy sal graag haar Ouma Joey saam wil bring vir ‘n maternity shoot, maar toe besluit JD hy kan nie meer wag nie.

Gelukkig kon ons toe ‘n paar weke later almal in die studio kry.

Baie geluk julle twee, julle seuntjie is beautiful!

PS: Kyk uit vir JD se pragtige wolkombers gebrei deur sy Ouma, Oumagrootjie en Tannies.

Connor - little Mr Perfect

I have had the privilege to “meet” Connor before he made his grand appearance. After three shoots at different stages, I realized that Connor has a special place in my heart. Connor is 7 months old. He has the most gorgeous eyes and is such a chilled out baby. Probably because of his perfectly matched parents, Yvette and Craig. I am very happy for you guys and want to say congratulations yet again.
