Lipstick 'n Lovebats Collaboration

I met Carmen from Lipstick 'n Lovebats at the Father's House Zanethemba Fashion Show a few weeks back. We chatted briefly on the evening and when she called me the following week to ask about a creative collaboration I was just so excited! In the end, three ladies with incredible passion put together the looks for these photos: Carmen Vosloo from Lipstick 'n Lovebats, Kary M with her gorgeous headpieces, and the amazingly talented Stephanie Saskia who did all the make-up. I was lucky enough to document it all on camera with the help from four beautiful models.

Sjoe - I am just so proud of these photos as they make their debut on my blog!  What else can I say, the first foray into fashion photography was nerve wrackingly-exciting. All the photographs were taken at Colonial Antiques and we made use of the natural light in the enormous store. The most difficult part of this shoot was being faced with too many options - nooks and crannies, little corners, fabulous old furniture... it was simply a photographer's dream.

A huge thanks to everyone who was involved. To the models Carmen, Noreen, Oyanda, and Tazmin - you ladies made my job far too easy. Each of you have been blessed with absolute beauty and grace, and I am so happy we got to work together xxx A big thank you must also go to Sass Diva for the funky jewelry that the models wore.

OK, that's it from me. We start off with the fabulous Mz Carmen herself :)
