Dubai family photographer

Mystical dunes people, are you ready for the most gorgeous family session? Yes, I now call myself a Dubai family photographer. We will be returning to steamy Dubai early June this year! Would love to capture your special moments with the little ones, book your sunrise session here.

ABOUT THE STYLE 


Oh my favourite topic to bring up! This is not a secret at all. I had a vision of the look, feel, colour and of course the time of day. Shireen’s (Mum) eyes sparkled when we put everything together. Blush and dreamy feels for the win! The kiddies are girly as they come, they were in barbie dress-up heaven. Oh and don’t forget to dress papa bear. A white shirt is always so beautiful and handsome on a man, so that one was easy.

 

To master the mystical feels I was going for it had to be sunrise.

 

 

ABOUT THE SESSION

 

This was such an incredible experience to drive past the Dubai dunes bright and early looking for the perfect location. But first breakfast. Always breakfast! Right? We made a little fire in the middle of nowhere (yes you can do that, so not in the Uk) and had bacon buns and coffee watching the sunrise peak. I had the privilege to photograph a family that’s so close to my heart. This was actually our 3rd session together, so smiles were flowing! What a joy it is taking pictures of 3 stunning sisters so close to mamma. It felt effortless, you can see the bond they all have. It’s hasn’t been the easiest journey to move from London to Dubai, but the Le Roux’s make every obstacle an adventure.

Feeling inspired? More pretty destination work here. Don’t forget to stay updated on our travel photography this year on Nkima on Style | Nkima Photography

She’s also a health and wellness coach and so motivating to many woman all over the world. Did you see her CONFIDENCE?! That’s pure inner confidence that shines through and girl, she worked for it!

The Location – Oh boy. This is a beaut of a store/cafe situated close to the main beach of Seminyak. Me and my man walked passed it on our very first day in Bali and BAM. I took the picture in my head of what I can create in such a chic, Balinese-style location. I feel like the whole store is set-up for a blogger/traveler photo sesh!

The Photographer – Ermmm… That’s ME obviously haha! As many of you know already, my hubby and I took these couple of months to travel and work abroad. Bali is our second stop on our journey and man we’re loving it! Being a Bali fashion photographer rattles my feathers for sure. If you visited Bali before you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Bali honeymoon inspired couple session

Bali honeymoon inspired couple session

Feast your eyes on this Bali honeymoon inspired couple session at Blos boutique.

 

When you enter a room and just know this is all the vibes and feels you were looking for to inspire and create. My beautiful friend shared this little escape with me after having the healthiest lunch at Blos Cafe. The cafe / boutique hotel is situated in trendy Pretoria, South Africa. You would think it’s in a hidden botanical location such a Bali, and BAM there it was! I had to get creative and shoot this little gem. 

All my crazy ideas came together when I found the most perfect couple for this shoot. Make-up artist, Chene Wiese and Pro Cricket player David Wiese. We met at the cafe for a quick drink and headed to the botanical room as quick as we could say BANANA LEAF! The look on their faces MEANT ROMANCE bliss. I love to photograph my couples in unique places that scream passion. A little bit about the room though… This beauty needs some detail!

All about the room.

On the outside it’s pure Greek! Pure white walls with cute little seating areas, and of course Pillows covered in leaf detail and a pop of yellow flavour. As you enter the room, the first thing you see is my dream stone egg bath. The interior in this place is incredible, I feel like they thought of everything to the little leafs on the hand towels. On the left is a cute romantic fireplace with rattan seats for all the winter cuddles. Did I mention the RAIN SHOWER. Okay, I need to move on, as I will describe this room till my hearts content!

About the couple.

South African couple goals right here you guys, they ooze confidence and passion between them comes oh so easy. I really want my couples to feel relaxed, as that’s the only way they will connect with me to get those insane images they want. A little thing I do is crank up the music fit for the occasion. Nothing says let’s get it onnnn like some RNB. Chene is an incredible make up artist, she looked flawless and felt that tropical madness with her handsome man on her side. 

I loved everything about this session, cannot recommend Blos Cafe more. This shoot was inspired by our work trip in Bali as an international Bali Photographer we cannot wait to capture some stunning Honeymoon Bali shoots. This sure is the place to be!

Prettiest Engagement shoot in Trafalgar square, London

Prettiest Engagement shoot in Trafalgar square, London

YOU MADE ME BLUSH

This is the prettiest Engagement shoot in Trafalgar square, London. Well, the prettiest that I have ever witnessed in person! Cecile flew from South Africa to visit her boyfriend, Ian as he recently moved to the big city. It didn’t take him long to propose in the most romantic way… He popped the question in Victoria park followed by a luxurious high tea at the one and only Sketch.

Well of course a London Engagement session had to happen!

We planned our morning bright and early to avoid the morning London rush. Somerset house definitely played the most romantic role to start off our day. The lamp posts were still shining bright, making me one happy photographer. We made a quick stop at my favourite place, Covent Garden just to get my couple in the mood for what’s ahead! I love adding at least 3 different locations to keep things interesting and of course with that comes an outfit change. Who doesn’t like a variety? At this stage we were an hour in and in my opinion this is when the true authentic magic begins… My clients feel at ease in front of the camera just to be themselves and enjoy each other. Never ever have I even thought about using Trafalgar Square as a location but boy did it deliver, little Rome vibes for sure!

Last but definitely not least we ended our amazing morning at Belgravia, beautiful chic victorian houses perfect for the passionate moments, it’s quiet and oh so elegant. I love London with all of my heart, it’s challenging me every time to go out of the comfort zone and try new things. I will be travelling abroad for six months being a Destination Photographer all over the world. Read my blog here for travel dates and bookings for Nkima Photography here

 

Much love always,

Travel photographers in South Africa and Bali

Travel photographers in South Africa and Bali

Our wanderlust moment

 

YES, you heard right, me and my partner in all things FUN will be travel photographers in South Africa and Bali the next 6 months! Life is an adventure and boy I’m definitely not meant to live in one place. Although London has been so good to me in many many wonderful ways. It’s time to spread the wings and fly baby, literally.

 

Why you may ask and where exactly?

 

First stop | Durban 10-15 November

I will be jetting off to Durbs for the very first time to photograph a beautiful destination wedding on a farm, think boho chic! I will be here for two days and have some spots open for shoots, so get in touch people! 

Joburg + Pretoria | 15-20 November

This will be a fantastic time to book in some shoots as I have 3 dates open for availability! Let’s play and have fun. I promise not to bring the London rain with me!

20 November – 3 January | Cape Town

Oh boy this is a goodie! Some time with the family over Christmas and New year but SO MANY open slots for some creative content to be created. As a photographer I’m so lucky to be able to work wherever I go. Cape Town is such a gem and photogenic as it comes. I have many plans for styled shoots and open to family and lifestyle photography, book your session soon to avoid disappointment, I would love to capture sweet, sweet moments while I’m there and make the absolute best of my trip.

3 January – 3 April | Bali + Philippines

This was not easy people. My husband is an accountant, so convincing my realist of a man was hard work. It took some planning, some home cookin’ and of course a lot of you tube videos to get him on board. At the end of the day we will never look back and say we shouldn’t have done that. It’s always been such a big dream of mine to travel the world and meet different people. I’m working on my newest project Nkima On Style where I will share loads of my traveling images and of course blog all about it! Aka. I’ll be a lifestyle / travel blogger. FUN RIGHT!

The first two months we will be working as freelancers in Bali and open for business! I will be miss trigger-happy and my boo will be working on his trading. The 3rd month we will set of to the Philippines for our last month of FREEDOM, as I like to say. I feel like this is the time in our lives to take chances. Be totally happy with your surroundings and take it all in, experiences is the best education.

 

Have I sold you on it yet? Hahaha. Because our minds are set.

Get ready…

And GO!

Feeling inspired by a special someone

Feeling inspired by a special someone

When you meet someone and inspiration just flows.

This girl totally deserves a blog written about her. You know when you feeling inspired by a special someone. Ana found me on instagram through my lifestyle photography posts in chic South Kensington. She’s a photographer herself, so it totally makes sense to meet for the first time in a cute ass café in Sloane Square. I’ve wanted to see Peggy Porches in bloom for a while now. First impression… Oh gosh… When I saw Ana dressed in a pretty pastel blue with the most perfect teeny-weeny hot drink, I knew I was in for a treat! Can still not believe how incredible instagram is and the opportunities it brings for creative to meet and businesses to strive. She’s a strawberry cupcake, and I’m a sweet and fruity kinda girl.

 

 

BE INSPIRED

We spoke all things life, tough times and the happiest of times. It all came down to the love and passion for photography that saved us at times where we were as lost as can be. These deep, raw moments made me feel butterflies from within and my soul dance with grace! I love connecting with like minded people who just gets it. You know… In this whole wide world, who can say meeting someone from instagram can make you feel so connected and free with a joy that’s indescribable.

Little did Ana know, but her words of encouragement filled with the nicest purest compliments made me feel emotional and stunned. That a complete stranger saw me for exactly who I am. She felt inspired to pursue her dreams and with silence walking to the station to part our ways she looked at me with her big blue eyes and said our meeting overwhelms her in the perfect way… Wow, so excited for what the future holds.

I saw a beauty in Ana that I haven’t seen in ages… She’s pure hearted. Kindness flows from her eyes and as crazy and silly as this sounds I feel like she’s meant to meet me and I’m meant to meet her.
