Portfolio Shoot {Jess}

Model Portfolios

Hi everyone,

Happy Tuesday!

I have always wanted to start a separate category to photograph teenagers (both guys and girls).  Called “Beautiful YOU!”, the idea behind this is more than a portfolio shoot ~ its to help teens grow in their confidence and understand that no matter who they are, there is beauty within them and if they understand that, it will radiate outwards.  Kind of fits with my Wabi~Sabi philosophy that I so love ~ meaning, very simply – “finding beauty in imperfection!”.  We are all human, we are all imperfect and yet we all have something beautiful about us.  My aim is to find your beauty.

I enjoy playing around with different textures and backgrounds as well as working with composites.

Set me Free

I have wanted to photograph Jess for ages.  Finally, her Mom and I said “lets do it!”  and we did!  A gentle, sweet, beautiful girl inside and out.  We played around a bit with portrait-style shots and then I tried out a few images so I could work with composites.  I like the one I’ve titled “set me free” the best.  So much fun to do.  Thanks Jess and Lolo xxx

So…..Sam & George hail from Hotazel.  To be honest I had never heard of the place.  Ignorant I know.

The icon of sweltering South African weather is the little village of Hotazel in the Northern Cape.

Ironically enough, Hotazel is not the hottest place in the country. Weather charts for the area register 37 degrees Celsius on the top end of the scale – and a chilly 3 degrees Celsius at the bottom.  Hotazel lies deep in the Kalahari, which in itself is a San/Bushman derivative word of ‘Kgalagadi’, meaning ‘the waterless place’.

Well, on the big day – rain was predicted but luckily for the couple (and the photographer),   the rain held off!   The day was quite warm and the Autumn colours were astounding.   The couple shoot was relaxed and when the crazy bridal party joined in,  it got a little more, well, crazy!!!
