Beauty in the desert | Namibia

When a concept and a road trip combine and you meet wonderful people along the way who become new friends, that’s what happened on this trip.

I had this idea to shoot in different landscapes in Namibia and one of the places that I have not visited before was the area between Usakos and Swakopmund. It’s one of those turnoffs that you always speed by to get to the coast but luckily I took to the path less travelled and took some people with me.

Here’s a look at a styled shoot we did at Goanikontes-Oasis with the lovely Amanda from Mirror Mirror in Swakopmund as our Decor & Floral elements expert. All outfits were from Shana Morland, based in Cape Town. Jessica’s makeup was done by Taryn from Anchor & Rose and Monika’s was done by Jane from Sophie Jean. The stunning cake was created by Natasha Hamman
