Baby & Co.

Posted on: November 24th, 2013 by Carolyn No Comments

Today we have some baby shower inspiration for a little boy.  Ana from ‘Nice Ribbon Atelier” was the creative mind behind these photos.  The theme was ‘Tiffany & Co.’ but she wanted to adapt it slightly to make it more appropriate for a baby shower and decided to call it Baby & Co.  I love…

As I started writing this post the sun came out and it stopped raining here in the land of the sand but I thought I would carry on anyway.  Who says rain can ruin your wedding photographs?  Personally I think this kind of weather can enhance your images by adding romance and a sense of…

In April 2012 my friends gave me the most beautiful bridal shower and it was here that I got my very first item from Lou Harvey (actually two items), spoilt rotten!  After seeing these gorgeous products all over South Africa I could not get over the stunning floral, striped and patterned ranges available.  I use…

I love the `new` trend of having engagement photos before your wedding day as it is a chance to capture all the excitement of starting a new chapter together.  I am even more excited as this is the very first couple shoot featured on `i am captivated`.  Gus and Marzelle decided to escape the bustle…

As a little girl I have always been fascinated with babies, I used to love playing with my dolls and pretending to be a mum.  Everything about a new baby is just the most incredible miracle and it is no wonder that parents want to capture every second of this precious little bundle`s life.  A…

It was a dream come true to plan our own wedding, everything about it was more than what Andy and I could imagine and we felt incredibly blessed.  I thought it would be a good idea to write about our wedding first as it was during the planning process that I was reminded of how…

Living in Dubai for four years and visiting it for 10 years before that means I have been privileged enough to watch this city develop and grow.  The most exciting thing has been to see how creative entrepreneurs are adding their touch to this dynamic place I can call home.  Walking into Vint Edge Decor…
