Daphne Accessories – Churche

May 2, 2017

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

April 23, 2017

NINA5-web

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

COOL STUFF, FASHION

Tiny Humans Clothing

Tiny Humans Clothing

When I went through NJ’s cupboard near the end of last year I had a huge pile of clothes that she hadn’t worn or had only worn once and I’m experiencing the same thing now with Rex. He’s quite the little eater so I have a stack of things already that just do not fit his wonderful fat little body anymore. He’s so cute!

Now there are a few things that one can do with these clothes, you can obviously donate them, which is amazing, or you can hand them down to relatives/friend’s babies, or you can make them into little bronze statues (I’m not judging if you if that’s your thing), or you can check out this nifty local company called Tiny Humans clothing.

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.

Cotton On Kids Little Reindeer Academy

December 19, 2016

Cotton-On-Kids

I always love shooting style posts with Nina James, she’s become such a trooper and I’ve learned that if I’m patient and have a couple of marshmallows in my pocket she’ll play along with me. Cotton On Kids sent her the sweetest little outfit the other day with a bit of information about Cotton On Kids Little Reindeer Academy, which involves a whole family of cute looking reindeer, fun in-store activities, face painting, movies and more. So when mom is going goo-goo-ga-ga over things like this pom-pom tulle skirt then the kids are happy and entertained.

We hopped onto our roof yesterday afternoon with a bit of confetti and a small supply of the good stuff (marshmallows) and I took some shots of her running around in her new get-up. Everything she is wearing from top to bottom is from Cotton On Kids except for her shoes. She loves this skirt so much, I think if she could she would sleep in it, it’s so sweet how happy it makes her. Shame by babs.

So NJ’s New Years outfit is sorted, I, on the other hand, are going to be so big I may have to wear my duvet with some fairy lights wrapped around it as a belt! Hehe.

Hope everyone is on holiday already and loving it!
