The Blomerus Family
SItting on a beach one day, out of the blue I felt this almost audible word in my heart. The most rudimentary words I can use is that it was as if the voice of God said to me, "From these shores I will give you family." I still get goosebumps when I think of it becuase it was such a defining moment in my life. I had no idea what critical life chapters awaited. But lo and behold, within a year, this South African man came into my life (while I was in the US no less!) I had already decided to move here and he was in a transition, so he actually "followed me" if you will. He knew I was it for him, so geography was secondary. Then we adopted a son and had two daughters, all locally. So by marriage, adoption and births, God has graciously given me South African family.
Those are the words Marysol presented me with when she dropped me a line asking if I'd photograph her beautiful family. When someone takes this much care in making sure you understand the importance of their family, you know that spending the afternoon with them is going to be incredible - Naturally, it was nothing short of that then.
Marysol is an accomplished Birth Photographer & Videographer. If you have some time to spare, head on over to her newly launched YouTube channel to view some her beautiful work.
For now though, sit back and view her beautiful family which I had the pleasure of photographing - Marysol & De Wet are celebrating 10 years of marriage and loved the idea of heading back to the beach as it represents the start of their journey, now 10 years on
