Kiesha and Marco are a very cute couple that I met while in East London for an engagement session.  They warned me about 3 times that they were very awkward in front of the camera...but that was utter NONSENSE!!! They were such fun and absolutely perfect in front of the camera.
 
 
Yup - they are both called Claire...and they both enjoy horses! 

I shot a wedding in St Francis Bay this past weekend, and decided to spend the remainder of the week with my sister in East London.  I was so glad that I agreed to be up at the crack of dawn to catch this sunrise for a shoot with the Claires...what a breath taking way to start a day. Although we were only 10 minutes from East London - it felt like I was out in the middle of the African bush. (sound track to The Lion King plays in the background!) :)
 
 
I am seriously grieving right now!!!

JUST as I was about to hit the 'Publish' button, my internet decided to flip and I lost my blog post.

I am now too angry to do it all over again, so instead am having a rant! Yes, yes - procrastination is not one of my best qualities, but perhaps this will help speed the grieving process along so that I can re-do to the blog post that I spent the whole of Grey's Anatomy doing.

1.  DENIAL
"The internet DID NOT just freak out and close, it's coming back - wait, give it a few minutes - it's coming back!!!"

(Holds thumbs)

2.  ANGER
"WTF???? NO, YOU DID NOT!!!! AAAAAHHHHHH.....I HATE the African internet.  I want to go back to Singapore where things WORK! I hate my life, I hate my macbook (not sure I really mean this one!) I hate this chair!

(Bangs head against wall)

3. BARGAINING
"Come on, come on, come on....I promise I won't scream at you again little and oh so wonderful laptop - please bring my blog post back. I'm sorry, OK? (Quiet prayer to the internet Gods.)

(kneels in quiet prayer)

4. DEPRESSION
"I can't believe this has happened.  SOB! I'm going to have a marshmellow easter egg and a small cry."

(Walks to kitchen, has easter egg and small cry then comes back to laptop.)


5.  ACCEPTANCE
"Guess I gotta learn to save as I go along.  My bad!"

(Sit's up straight, ends procrastination session!)
 
 
A couple of weekends ago I had some free time, so decided to do a shoot for - FUN!  

I had originally planned to just use one girl, but after bumping into another two enthusiastic young souls the morning of the shoot - plans changed to three.  With 'Foster the People' pumping in the background, clothes and make up strewn all around the room and 3 excited models (and photographer and friend!) ready and excited to go - we were off and unstoppable.

It was a glorious sunny day in Durban and the mood was right.  I'm so pleased with the photos and SO AMAZED that we got a passerby to join us on one of the shots.  He looked like such a thug, but then laughed so sweetly when I teased him about his pout.  Just goes to show!!

Have a glorious Thursday.
Xx
