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.

Behind-The-Scenes Bridal ShootsI modelled at Brenaissance wine estate this past weekend for a bridal editorial with photographer Veronique Millswedding gown designer Elizabeth Stockenstrom + Bijoux JewelleryBrenaissance is any bridal couple’s dream venue. The Bridal suite is beautifully decorated. There’s a white glass fronted chapel that overlooks the vineyards. The venue is a blank canvas and it’s got all the amenities needed for an amazing wedding! If you feel like relaxing at the restaurant on a saturday, they’ve launched their new picnic menu. They also have a brand new wine tasting deck. They offer the most delicious wine paring pizza + lovely cheese cake to top it all off. The shoot was so much fun! I’m confident the images will be pretty awesome. Read more on an article I wrote for aspiring models on how to make magic in front of the camera. I’ve also got more photos of behind-the-scenes on my instagram @misstamikajade.
