Too long ago I promised a post about the mythical cats we found in and around Ephesus in Turkey… this little guy graced the steps of the ancient Celsus library. (and what a poser!)

A writer’s heart, a poet’s heart, an artist’s heart, a musician’s heart is always breaking. It is through that broken window that we see the world.

Sisters...Susan and Abby-gail

Wednesday, 9 September 2015

I met Susan which feels like millennia ago …Originally from Henley-on-Klip Susan travelled far and wide and have now settled in Norway with her husband Nils where she recently opened a world class Facial and Beauty Salon. I would say that you just have to book a treatment with her but the salon has been such a hit that it is quite impossible to get a booking so plan in advance if you want to be pampered there!
Abby-gail I met a few years later… such a gentle beauty with the most darling little girl Ella.(See little Ella where she featured with Abby in one of our previous posts this year)

Generations of beautiful women we would like to photograph for all time…

Werner and Lize-mari

Saturday, 5 September 2015

We photographed Lize-mari and Werner last year and after we heard the very exciting news that they got engaged a few weeks ago we wanted to celebrate a bit by sharing some of their photographs taken at Castello Di Monte in Pretoria. These two were deadly stylish at the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s meet the 60ies  Italian Mafia” part of their photoshoot !!

Fine Art in the making...

Wednesday, 2 September 2015

The concept and idea behind a Fine Art series we are currently working on is close to my heart and it is wonderful to see it slowly come to fruition!
From the surface it might just look like pretty pictures but it will explore the frailty of  beauty against the different depths of immortality in nature…

Now I am really burning to share some images of this project but will have to restrain myself from sharing too much for now so we can only leak some behind the scenes images J

Due to our location we had no model so I just had to bite the bullet and stand in (a challenge in itself I tell you!)

And then of course we had our little creatures around who was having none of this silliness ( and did not agree with not getting all the attention!) …first there was one furry, then two , then mild chaos….

And yes, the ladder does have a purpose!
