@k@: Thank you, it was a wonderful shoot for all in our wonderful Jonkershoek valley. I went to read your information, and I can see why I felt your photography comes from somewhere deep inside you, not just pretty pictures! I'll hold thumbs for all of your and others' friends that are ill or in need, it touches all of us, and this blog is providing more than photo's, or a place to put your photo's.

Magrat from Germany

Awww... this is so lovely! They have the time of their life... running and jumping and singing and laughing! Wonderful captured... the tones are dreamy and it is so great that they seem to be running right into the picture....! 5***** for you and the girls...

Take care and you and yours all the best.. :)
