Family photography inspired by
emotion, connection & love

Welcome to Liefiekind photography, your family portrait photographer in Cape Town and surrounding areas. I specialise in natural, candid styled photos with an elegant twist. My goal is to make you as comfortable in front of the camera as possible - a relaxed person is a photogenic person. Being a mom myself, I also enjoy the challenge of getting the best out of kids.

  • natural, candid and real
  • at your home or on location
  • 14+ years experience in portraiture
  • based in Cape Town, South Africa

Maternity

The beauty of your pregnant belly. One day you and your child will be really thankful that that this amazing phase your body went through was documented. During these photo sessions I get totally caught up in the excitement you and your partner share about this new chapter in your lives that is just beginning.

Newborn

Your baby is only a newborn for a few short weeks. The photos taken during those first 3 weeks are so special and unique that I treat it as a whole separate category. It also requires great care and sensitivity to work with a baby and mom who are still adjusting at home. Proud dads and siblings are also included.

Babies

Once baby is a little bit older, interaction with the camera and parents makes for an interesting shoot and lovely images. I try to make the photos really personal and spontaneous so that your baby’s personality can shine through in every shot. Doing the session at home or a fun location works best.

Family

Kids grow up so fast. A family photo shoot is an investment in preserving a moment in your family’s history that you can look back on for years to come. From toddlers to teens and everyone in between, every child is beautiful and I find that no two families are the same. Pets are also welcome.

Photographer mom – visual memories#1

Living with a toddler can be fun and extremely interesting at times. That is why I am going to start blogging visual memories…. Muller leaves little “clues” behind of how his mind works as he plays. Sometimes it is hard work getting everything back into place (and other times extremely painful when you step on a piece of lego). But mostly I can’t help smiling when I find a whole fleet of aeroplanes in-between the cutlery or when I see Spiderman riding a Brontosaurus while using a snake as his lasso…

Photographer mom – Rough seas…

August 13, 2015

In the past I would never get too personal when blogging and always tried to keep my blogs “light and fluffy”. But I feel it is my duty as someone who works with real people and families every day – entering their personal spaces – to also be honest about my own life and journey. That is what Liefiekind photography is all about – every day life and keeping it real…
