recently i had the privilege of capturing some shots of this beautiful pregnant woman, Mardi. she is gorgeous and it was a lot of fun chasing the sun and trying to find appropriate fields without animals.  davo came along to help me out with some shots and assist me with reflectors, that kinda stuff. we didn’t want this shoot to be your typical maternity shoot. i feel like this is one of the most exciting times of your life and you want to look beautiful and radiant, so a sunset seemed pretty appropriate. essentially we just wanted them to look really pretty and girly and to reflect that pregnancy glow. and in true caboodle style, we did everything. hair, makeup, styling and photography of course. i dono. i think she looks pretty darn beauteous! let a sista know ya thoughts.

Makeup,  Styling

here are some photos i took of my sister a while ago to build my makeup folio and her modelling folio. it was a lot of fun, but almost impossible to make her flawless skin look bad. so you could say it was easy. nonetheless, i think the makeup is pretty snazzy…





if you’re in need of a makeup artist / photographer / stylist, i’m your girl.

Outfits,  Summer

singlet: Scanlan and Theodore
shorts: DKNY (that were once jeans)
shoes: Converse
watch: Marc Jacobs

totally love this singlet which was given to me by my baby sis for christmas. i’ve worn it a few too many times of late. and  just another present to add to the pile is this watch. holy smokers. i was rather impressed when my boyfriend presented me with this at christmas. it’s almost too exciting when you get the thing you were really hoping for. so this little ensemble is how i’ve been dressing almost exactly for the last couple of weeks. no joke. i think i’ve worn about 5 variations of this muscle tee/mini short combo. some would say it’s too much. others would say you’re super cool don’t even worry about it. but i mean, is it really outfit repeating if your alternating colours? it would perhaps only be confusing to those colourblind members of the community, and i’d say they’re a vast minority. less of an outfit repeater, more of an outfit optimiser i say. now go free and optimise.
