Growing up...

Last night was Sarah's Grade 7 farewell party at school - the end of an era for her and me.  It is the last two weeks of junior school for both of us - next year I will have both of my 'babies' in high school - I can't believe it.  It was just the other day that she was dressing up to look grown up and now she doesn't need to try to look grown up, she just is!  She looked, and is, so beautiful.


And now....

Beautiful sisters..

Stunning home!

I am mad about this beautiful home!  It belongs to Deborah Bibby, editor of Real Living Australia.  I found the pics on Design Sponge.  I could just move right in here :)

Been here, done that!

These pics by Hugh Stewart make me think of so many shoots I have done on a beach.....the models look so cool and glamorous, but the reality is heat, wind, sand in everything and oh yes, stress!

Hope you're having an absolutely wonderful Sunday!

Fabulous pics for Friday

I'm so glad the weekend is here!  It has been a particularly loooong week for some reason.  We are off to see Annie this evening - can't wait, I love theater and Annie is an all time favourite.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  
Love these pics from the October edition of Vogue UK.  Photographed by Laura Sciacovelli.

My remarkable mother

My mum just came across this cutting from British Vogue 1963, October edition.  This dress was designed by my mother and modeled by the famous Jean Shrimpton!  Its a beautiful photograph and a beautiful dress.   Unfortunately she cannot remember who the photographer was and there is no byline.  Heavens knows what sort of career my mum might have had if she had not decided to marry my father and move to South Africa....

Beautiful countryside

I've been shooting a commercial for Germany for the last couple of days on Rustenberg Wine Farm in Stellenbosch.  Apart from erratic and extreme weather it was such a treat to spend two-days in the middle of such exquisite countryside.  So, it goes without saying that I am feeling suitably inspired by all things to do with farms and nature!  Gotta love these pics for Burberry - every girl wants a bit of Burberry!  Have a wonderful weekend x
