Let’s start with Tatenda because she’s the genesis of how this shoot was done. She finished her IB late last year and is currently awaiting admission to university. She’s in the cooking business and marketing for a company called Kura Yetu.
She posted on my new look Facebook page early last month (have you visited it recently?) and we got to talking and planning and just like that the shoot happened.
As usual. I asked her what 3 things the world doesn’t know about her. The answers were:
2. She’s addicted to yoghurt, gummy bears and purple.
3. She can do ANYTHING for the people she loves.
In the next 10 years she wants to have at least 1 child, at least half of the collection of Audis, and a stable life.
Now let’s shift focus to Sally. She’s currently just chilling awaiting university admission.
Sally is Tatenda’s best friend (I could tell from the pet names they used on each other the whole time we were shooting)
So, when I asked about her 3 things this is what she told me:
1. She loves loves loves fashion
2. She loves anything with Ed Westwick in it.
3. She loves Placebo (the rock band)
In 10 years, she sees herself working (like everybody else – her words, not mine), having kids and just living out the rest of her life in the happiest way possible.
This was a particularly challenging shoot because half the time the skies were threatening to send down torrential rains (however much I was assuring everyone that it wasn’t gonna rain), but thanks to the valiant efforts of the ladies’ friends at holding the reflectors as instructed, the shots worked out. Here’s one bonus image of the two lovely ladies.
