christine meintjes {workshop}

In June I had the privilege of attending a Christine Meintjes photography workshop at the stunning Landtscap in Stellenbosch. The company I work for sponsored much of the cost, which blew me away. The whole thing was a dream-come-true, because Christine is my absolute favourite photographer, and I have followed her work for years. I just love her sharing and caring attitude to other photographers, and of course she is super talented! I also met her husband Iaan, a successful and talented entrepreneur. On this small, intimate workshop I chatted with other photographers from around SA, and we are all still in contact.

On the first day Christine did an engagement shoot with a sweet couple (see the pics HERE). We were able to snap away behind her, learning from her as we went. Below are a couple of my snaps from the day:

This workshop kept my love of photography alive. Thank you Christine, you're an inspiration!

england {1st overseas trip}

Part 2 of my overseas trip: 10 days in England. I flew from 32 degrees in Dubai, to -5 in London! On my first day I walked around Surrey in my Durban Winter clothes (totally insufficient) and of course, caught cold instantly ;) Despite the bad weather, I saw and did just about everything! I stayed with my long time school friend Cara and her hubby, in their beautiful home, which I loved. Below are some of my favourite happy snaps, a few friends and some of myself in my wool London beanie which I wore almost every day. Can you say "tourist"?
