Our Modern Muse

Sunday, 29 June 2014

I don't know if it is her infectious laughter, her willingness to try anything and take direction so beautifully or those arm muscles (holding that Wildebeest scull was no small feat!) that made it so incredible to work with Anè whose spirit just oozes into each photograph and we had a sunny morning spiced with a good bit of Mexican flair.
It was such a difficult decision to choose the best images that this is probably the largest blog post we have ever done and please please make sure you scroll down all the way to the bottom where we have added just a few taken on the most comfy chair ever... if I had to go lie there nothing would have happened for the rest of the day...just sunny snoozes!

The  beautiful backdrop for these pictures were all on the bushveld farm Ane and her husband call home.


We could not have been more thrilled with these gorgeous Wildebeest scull images!! She looks STUNNING.... or so we think... raw, earthy, edgy... a real modern muse!


 This precious little darling lamb below was born the night before and we couldnt resist asking Anè to pose with it for us.
If it wasn't for our own very brave Steph { dust & dreams PHOTOGRAPHY} ,our lovely muse Anè would have been overrun by a slightly...mmnn, let's call it "anxious" mama sheep.
We ended the first part of this {Ethereal Emotion} session inside Anè 's lovely home and totally fell in love with the relaxed playfullness of these picks.Not to mention the total yumminess of that "bear skin rug" they have there!
