@throughshadedeyes – Falling Leaves

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons to shoot. The light is soft, the leaves are bright oranges, reds and browns, the clothing is layered and textured and the air is still warm enough to allow us to shoot outdoors easily. The details in this outfit made the shoot. The textures and patterns against the blurred…

Burgundy Blur

Tokelo and I met early one morning to shoot this winter look. Burgundy has been my favourite colour for the season. Maybe it’s the colour, maybe it’s the palette trend title – ” red wine”. One thing I know is that it looks good on anyone and photographs extremely well in any light. I enjoyed…

City streets

Tokelo and I both agree that this is our favourite look of the two we shot. When people book me for shoot I always suggest two or more outfits as the first one, although still very nice, is always a bit posed or “stiff” until we move onto the second, third, fourth look and the…

Bunny Blur

I photographed this Easter-inspired look with Aisha recently and have been dying to shoot a full black & white story. I took this opportunity when she showed me this all-black outfit. We both wanted to shoot something with strong lines, high contrast and also in a neutral location as the outfit has details that cannot…

Summer vs Winter hues

 I shot this wintery look with Aisha recently and she released it today, on a cold, gloomy Monday in Cape Town. Aisha and I loved our dark, reflective location and I made sure I shot at a low light allowing all of the textures in the dress to show. In post production I added a…

It Was Snowing Foam

While in Port Elizabeth I snuck in a little moment to photograph a lookpost for the blogger Londam-Holland . We were lucky enough to get through to outfits in the horrible weather PE gave me BUT it resulted in the most awesome images! We started out first look at the Pier where it was so windy,…

Day with DV-Makeup

I recently photographed Dercia from DV Makeup under the Baked The Blog Style Special. She had a strange request for her winter themed shoot as she wanted to photograph her items on the beach! When I met her she explained that in her country they  spend winters on the beach so it would make sense to…

Print Baked

  Aisha and I attended an event at the Langaro Lifestyle Studio in Camps Bay last week and shot this in-the-moment look post before we left. I was feeling really creative this week and love this lookpost we created! I really felt like it was completely personalised from the printed text I made to the…

Winter Baked

I am missing lookposts with Baked The Blog as much as her readers are and decided to post one of our latest lookposts which is so fitting for this wintery weather we are having.   We went to the Topshop launch at the V&A Waterfront last month and had tons of fun in their new…

Autumn Forest

This is a portfolio/test shoot that I photographed on a warm Autumn evening. As you all know, I love the forest at this time- the lighting, the colours- everything. I have been showing alot of commercial photoshoots this month and am going to post a few more personal shoots I have done. Many people who…

Winter Fields

Due to popular demand I am posting another one of my favourite Baked the Blog Lookposts. This is a more recent one that we photographed for a winter look. I am obsessed with this field location especially in the late afternoon (which is when we photographed this lookpost.) Aisha and I always have such fun…

Forest Chic

I collaborated with a young up and coming designer, Georgie Rattle, who caught my attention when she released her first range of clothing last year. Her clothing can be bought online via her facebook page Georgie Rattle Clothing. Georgie organised our model, Mia A, who was a friend and model from Boss Models. Our makeup…
