kiss kiss photography

I take a lot of photos of my kids, in fact, I probably have like 100 000 of them stored up on my hard drive, but I literally only have a few really cool photos of myself and them together, which makes me really sad, so when Chloe from Kiss Kiss Photography contacted me and asked if she could come hang out with myself, Nina James and Rex for a morning I was like ‘Yes pllleeeaase!’

I never thought I would enjoy having photos taken of myself at home by someone I literally didn’t know, but Chloe was so warm and friendly and it didn’t feel awkward or strange in any way, it’s like she wasn’t even there and she managed to make a friend out of NJ in under a minute! She knew exactly how to talk to her (first sign that she’s a mom herself) and she knew that pulling out some bubble mixture as a gift would earn her some serious street cred.

Daphne Accessories – Churche

Daphne-Accessories-Churche-1

This year I promised myself that I would try to do as many shoots as I can with Adi under our label Churche. We love working with local labels, we love the time and effort that has been put into designing or creating what they have to offer and that’s why we were so excited to shoot these beautiful hand rolled scarves made by Daphne Accessories.

These locally manufactured scarves are designed by Danica, who is super sweet and really talented! I love her quirky designs because they are unlike anything I have ever seen before and they involve cats! Made in South Africa from Kashibo fabric with hand-rolled edges, these pieces will have you feeling super fancy in no time. Another awesome thing about Daphne Accessories is that all her scarves are limited edition pieces, so if you buy one you’ll be one of only a lucky few to have that specific print. How cool is that?!

Adi and I have been dying to do a Churche shoot! The last time we worked together I was so huge and almost ready to give birth to my baby Rex. It’s been a good few months since we’ve teamed up to shoot something for our little collective and that’s why I’m so excited to share this new series with you that we created for local jewelry designer Henriette Botha’s new range.

Hello my baby loves

The other day I met a couple of awesome ladies who run a local label called Koco Bino, they have a sweet little boutique in Sandton City (Shop U81A ) jam packed full of babies, toddlers, young kids and moms-to-be clothes and just recently they launched their very own range: Koco Bino for Kids which they invited me to check out.

Their baby range is super cute, they’ve gone for graphic yet simple designs, but all the pieces are versatile and not your typical baby stuff, they’ve had fun with stripes and crosses, polka dots and nautical bits and pieces. Their toddler range is a bit fancier but definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for something to put your little one in for a special occasion. They stock all sorts of items from hats to shoes to dresses and suits as well as cool little bits and pieces like toys, prams etc

African Bazaar

This is a photographic project that I have really been wanting to share with you guys and now I finally can! Near the end of last year Adi and I under Churche worked together with the awesome folk from The Spanish Coalition on a little project called African Bazaar. Working with the team behind this and the amazing Emy (I mean how beautiful is she?!) was such a treat and I’m so happy with the end result. Please let me know what you think of it, I would love to hear your thoughts.

The Spanish Coalition’s (who are a great little advertising agency if you’re looking for one) concept behind this project is really cool – African Bazaar’ was inspired by the informal economy of this city. This catalogue exhibits some of the bizarre and miscellaneous things you can buy in and around the streets of Jozi.

Yay I’m so excited for you guys to see this ‘little’ project that I got to work on with my friends Matthew Mole, Adi Koen and Alastair Thomas. A few weeks back we shot Matthew’s new music video for his latest single ‘Holding On’. We had loads of fun coming up with the scenarios in this video as well as art directing and styling it! I love my job, it changes all the time and I get to a part of cool things like this, which makes me very happy!

Well done to everyone who worked on this, I’m sending out high-5’s to you all and well done Matthew for writing such nice songs and for most importantly, letting us drop 202 viennas on your head.

If you haven’t watched the video yet, have a squizz and let me know what you think. Enjoy!

This is one of our Churche jobs, if you’re keen to work with us, please drop me a mail.
