Right before I left South African shores my friend and awesome make-up artist (which I am not saying just because we are friends), Missy van Heerden called me up and wanted to know if I'd be keen to do one last shoot before I headed to America.
Of course I was. The past three times working with her have been a blast and we've gotten some great results together and she just manages to find good looking people as if they are in an isle at the grocery store. This time she mentioned that it would be a girl I'd be photographing which I have to admit made me slightly nervous. Girls are sometimes a little tricky and fussy when it comes to being photographed :) No offense ladies, you know these words to be true.
Tayla was a breeze to photograph though and I didn't need to coach her. She pulled it off with style, which is great for me coz I dunno how the heck to pose people. Mental note: Work on this.
Besides modeling, Tayla is in her final year of studying marketing at The University of Pretoria. She used to be a DJ on Tuks FM as well and she seems to be always on the go :)
There really isn't much more to add to this post though, as the photos speak for themselves. We had about an hour's worth of good light to work with, which was a little worrisome but I am very stoked with the results we got.
As always, Missy's work was rad and I want to thank her again for including me in her schemes :) I am planning on doing a shoot with her as soon as I am back in South Africa.
Enjoy the rest of the shoot.
Thanks for reading
