Cape Town Maternity Shoot . Mrs. K

What a special time to capture your body confidence, when your body is making a baby! Even if you decide at the last minute to do a maternity shoot, its all good , cause you will look back and be so happy you captured this incredible change your body is made to do!

THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID …….

It’s alway good to do something completely out of your comfort zone. I did it and it made me feel beyond beautiful in my new body. Simone, you were so amazing, & made me feel so comfortable and at ease throughout the shoot. Thank you for capturing such a special moment in my life!

THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID…….

“It was super special for Simone to photograph my preggy body because her and her hubby photographed our wedding two years ago. And to be pregnant at the same time made it even more special.

Simone, as on our wedding day, made me feel relaxed and calm with her calming spirit.

I felt no fear or self consciousness in front of her. In general during my pregnancy I embraced my growing shape, the weight gain, the heavy boobs...and that’s what I wanted to capture for my memory. I believe our bodies are made for this and we should not be afraid to celebrate it. The most special part was landing up naked in the bath at the end, being photographed in the water which has played such a huge calming role in this first pregnancy for me. Those are the pictures we will keep for ourselves.

It was a moment of freedom and body confidence I’ve never had before. Thank you special, sweet Simone for capturing baby in my belly so so beautifully in our home”

Cape Town Boudoir - Maria Magdalena

A few weeks back i had the privilege to capture one of Cape Town’s most talented artists, Maria Magdalena, just before her wedding day . To be able to create such art with a person that shares such an appreciation for body positivity was truly something special.

HERE IS HER STORY AND WHAT SHE SAID…….

“I have admired the Golden Fox brand from a distance for quite some time now and reached out to Simone a while back to simply and genuinely compliment her on the amazing body positive brand that she has created. Women appreciating and loving their bodies and celebrating them unashamedly through photography is something that I admire greatly. In a world with a relentless stream of judgement from outside sources as well as the harshest judgment we reserve for ourselves, it’s a pretty spectacular thing to break out of that negative loop and celebrate your female form. Finding the courage to proudly have it shared across social media is even more amazing to me.

My Golden Fox shoot came at a time where I was at my most vulnerable. I had quit nicotine 3 days prior, had my thirtieth birthday coming up and then straight after that my wedding. All of these big milestones cramped into the space of two months. Simone and Che came to my apartment, pampered me like a princess and very gently helped me through some beautiful poses. It was one of the most empowering moments of my life getting a peek behind the camera at what my body was capable of. My body is strong, supple, curvaceous and above all else, art.

What an unbelievable privilege to have my almost 30-year-old body captured like this a month before our wedding. What an experience. Every woman deserves to feel this special. Treat yourself today. Hug yourself. Tell yourself you love yourself. Thank your beautiful body for its strength and resilience even though you don’t always treat it that well. If you love your own body, it will inspire all of the females in your life to have the courage to do the same. And if you have an insecure wobble every now and then be even kinder to yourself - you are allowed your bad days as much as you are allowed the good ones.”

THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID……

Two of my best friends both did a shoot about 3 years ago, after hearing about what an amazing experience it was I have been wanting to do it ever since!

I have had issues with hormonal birth control for years and recently made the decision to go off it and see how it goes. I have never felt better from a mental point of view, I am so glad I did it. My skin on the other hand decided that I was a teenager again! So I kept thinking I will do it when I have lost a few kilos or when my skin is better... etc.

I finally plucked up the courage and emailed Simone, I didn't look back, she coached me through the whole process from what to wear down to her lying on my couch showing me how to pose! It made me feel so great and I didn't think about my skin or anything else once!
