Tropical Paradise in The Heart of Austin


No Comments

Lake Austin Spa is an oasis on Lake Austin in gorgeous Austin, Texas! Catch it on a warm Spring or Summer day and you’ll have an almost tropical experience you won’t soon forget.

With crystal blue waters, the lake looks positively enticing as you sit and relax by the pool or on the patio in what can be the blistering heat of the Spring and Summer months.

I personally think this is a fabulous photo shoot location for aspiring models and actresses who are needing new headshots in an uplifting environment. I love the interior design, and the background of the water is just fabulous!

Lake Austin Spa Resort is tucked away in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. It has been ranked the #1 Resort in Texas & the Southwest by Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards.

Tucked away in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, our all-inclusive luxury spa resort offers a truly unique experience, where we cater to your well-being and provide a sanctuary for rest and renewal. – website

Being in New York this time of year, I’m seeing snow literally for the second time in my life. I love it, I just really wish it wasn’t so cold! It’s around – 12 °C for my South African readers. I bought a cute fur headband from Macy’s + some leather gloves, they’ve helped a lot. Apparently Feb 15th was the coldest day in New York history in 20 years! Here are some photos from around Battery Park, Central Park, New York’s Theatre District + Jersey City.

Shooting at Roodebloem Studios

Models South Africa Roodebloem Studios

I shot yesterday at Roodebloem Studios in Woodstock, Cape Town. We had so much fun! The studios are amazing (huge kitchen, lounge, private makeup room, bathroom, beautiful modern finishings) I think they are every photographer’s dream! I have some awesome behind the scenes photos on my instagram @misstamikajade. We did my hair the same as we did for the bridal shoot this past weekend in Stellenbosch. I actually rarely have it curly in real life, it’s more naturally wavy like in this shoot I did for City Lodge. All these photos were taken on my new gold iphone6.
