I’m such a fan of fuss-free cakes and easy baking! This recipe is simple and delightfully aromatic with the lemon zest and thyme – a real winner!! Find this lovely loaf cake recipe here on our weekly food column for the inspiring Pretty Blog.
I’m SOOOO excited to share the first sneak peek of the season! Lushinka and Kyle looking jaw-droppingly radiant on their beautiful winter wedding at Die Woud… Winter light at it’s most perfect!!
I am just over the moon to share the details from our upcoming workshops in October! The Food Fox and I are branching out this year and offering a food bloggers weekend, an intermediate food photography workshop and a food styling day – all with hands-on prac sessions! See the details in the posters below and please get in touch if you’re keen as there are only 12 seats per workshop!
It’s a joy to describe what it’s like to photograph a creative shoot with these awesome women/friends/talents!! It’s fun, fast, busy, creative and 100 laughs a minute!! They really are days I cherish!! This shoot was extra special as it was the day before beautiful Silke’s baby was due – the only day the four of us could find to fit in her maternity shoot! What a riot of colour and magnificent florals all set against an amazing back drop of art, texture and hand painted patterns!! The rain was lashing down outside but inside it was all sunshiney yellow, baby bumps, goats, so much beauty and even more laughs! Enjoy the photos! Flowers, concept and styling by Fleur le Cordeur, make-up and hair by Yolande du Toit with model Silke Bosman.
Soft rain is drumming gently on the windows today here Elgin and I confess that I’m still in my pyjamas… What I wouldn’t give for a steaming mug of this chocolately elixir right in front of me at this moment! Find the Food Fox’s wonderfully heady recipe here on our weekly column for the Pretty Blog. Good things…
So it’s the end of the wedding year and there’s some breathing space to reflect on everything that has passed this last twelve months – wow!!
I adore collating some of my favourite moments from the year’s wonderful weddings and each year I take some time to highlight some of my favourite black and white images altogether. I hope you enjoy these photos…
My husband is the most amazing cook and his black onion seed and yoghurt naans are something of a legend around here! Soft, fragrant and brushed with melted butter… One day I may convince him to part with the recipe but until then we have this scrumptious version from the Food Fox to keep you going :-D And it’s fantastic!! She’s paired it with a spicy dhal and fresh coriander – yumms!! Find her super recipe here on our weekly food column for the wonderful Pretty Blog.
It’s been an honour and a joy to have photographed this awesome couple through their engagement shoot, wedding, maternity session and now their first born babs on camera! I love catching up with them when we meet up for shoots and was so delighted to finally meet their sweet little Caitlyn. What a cute little squirrel she is!!!
These two… OOOPH, it hits you straight in the chest! SO much love between this special pair… I just could not have asked for a better wedding to end this season. What an amazing day – or even better put – what a personal day! They crafted every detail themselves and chose to celebrate their own family beginning with a handful of their special people on the shore of the West Coast in the seaside town of Yzerfontein. Intimate and perfect… I am so grateful, Taryn and Alastair, that you chose me to witness and capture these memories – THANK YOU!!! I hope you adore the photos and the memories of this phenomenal day… A bride in fluffy slippers is a bride after my own heart ;-) Thank you two for being so lovely!! It means a lot :-) Assisted by the lovely Tanith Muller Photography with incredible make-up by the talented Yolande du Toit and beautiful flowers & furniture by N Concepts & Design.
I adore styled shoots and this gorgeous one was filled with creativity, freshness and modern simplicity in a beautifully rustic setting. Needless to say I loved every minute! Especially working with this amazing team to bring these ideas and concepts together:
