Monica's Boudoir Shoot

Monica is a beautiful, fun, soulful, intense woman with a delightful spruce of odd-ness that I adore. She brings this depth and quirkiness to the images she creates and is also the best and most loyal friend any woman could ask for. A few months back when she reached a certain milestone age, we thought that a boudoir shoot would be a great idea to celebrate and acknowledge this feat.

Sometimes when I get to a shoot and there is SO much beauty and great things to work with, I get overwhelmed - where to start? We had not one, but 2 amazing venues, a gorgeous model, stunning autumn day, as well as Moni's hair and make-up done beautifully by the very talented Sanmarie Botha.

We started off at the Old Mac Daddy in Elgin who generously offered use of some of their awesome caravans to do the shoot in. Amazing venue that is both peaceful and funky. (I'll be back for a romantic weekend away or maybe with the babas as they are refreshingly set up for kids too). 

Then we headed to Glenbrae farm down the road - an apple farm as well as a very cool-looking wedding venue which is something a bit different to a wine estate and run by the most friendly and hospitable Evelyn. Thank you for letting us run riot on your beautiful piece of land. 

Thanks also to Ali from Schoone Oordt (which has incidentally been named as one of the top 50 hotels in the WORLD) who set us up with these amazing venues.

Did I mention that the model was up for anything? Let me tell you that the ground she is lying on was not un-cold and there were some farm labourers lurking around not far away.

Anyway this is going on for too long. Some images.

Just to give an idea of the kind of day we had:

    Jules - thanks for being such a beautiful friend...I LOVE each and every photo, and what you have created goes above and beyond what I could have imagined. Lying on that damp earth, near-shivering in the orchard, was well worth it :-) I was a little nervous to have some foxy one's online, but then thought that If my clients bravely agree to be on my blog, I would experience it too, and besides, I'm proud of my 40 year young body. Thank you! I love them. xxx
