Hello friends! We’re trying to be better at this blogging thing so here’s another one for you to sink your teeth into 🙂
When we met Danniella while shooting for Healthy Woman, we knew we had to work with her again! We mulled over it for a while and agreed that we wanted to capture her fun, cool and carefree spirit in a bright and dynamic setting. After looking around, we found the perfect location; vibrant mabati, brick walls, symmetrical 3D patterns, we had struck gold!
As fate would have it, the location did not pan out and we were extremely disheartened. Finding another location less than 24 hours to the shoot was going to prove to be quite the task and we were losing our window to shoot. Then the idea struck us. What if we made our own backgrounds?
A few hours of research and shopping later, we were armed with the tools to create our very own custom backgrounds. About an hour of prep the night before and we were good to go.
Our bad luck definitely took a turn on shoot day. We enlisted our first intern, Jonas Nyacomba, a brilliant and creative mind who lent her eye to the backdrop design and turned what was merely an idea into something spectacular. Sinitta Owor of Cultured Ego who did the epic make up for Fear & Desire worked her magiq again and freestyled looks with barely a coherent sentence of instruction 😀
This shoot was challenging but extremely rewarding; kind of like life, right? We are in love with the result and we hope you will be too!
