On holiday in Margate, Sean van Tonder did a family shoot for me on the beach. What a fantastic experience!! Not only is our photo’s amazing, but he went out of his way to play and make jokes with my two year old daughter and pretty soon they were having a blast. Thank you Sean, you are amazing. Looking forward to doing another shoot with you.
