Botanical Garden Family Photo Shoot

If experiences capture shared moments best, then photos – without a doubt – capture memories best.

The Botanical Garden Family Photo Shoot takes place in the beautiful Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens – Gauteng’s best place to get in touch with nature. The photographer will capture the spectacular natural scenery as backdrop for your family photoshoot.
