A fun little water boudoir photoshoot in Pretoria

A fun little water boudoir photoshoot in Pretoria. Maryke booked me during lock down to help support me, we all know lockdown was terrible for small businesses and photographers really struggled without being able to photograph people.

It wasn’t just the restrictions but fear for my own health that had me postpone my shoots, but postponed shoots also means very little income during the lockdown.

I am forever grateful for clients like Maryke who continued to support me on one of my specials.

Maryke and I came up with this awesome idea to do a charcoal water photoshoot with red roses. We couldn’t find the roses so we settled for daisies.

We used Blue Diamond Boutique Hotel for the photoshoot, their rooms are stunning and their bathrooms are perfect for what we wanted to achieve. Have a look at booking them if you are keen for a quick getaway that is not too far from the city.

Maryke was such a pleasure to work with, even dunking her head under the water to get that perfect shot.

At the end we decided to get a funky/scary shot in.

There was this beautiful tattoo’d goddess on my screen, beautiful brown locks and posed on a chair in an elegant hotel room.
