Heike lives mainly in Germany but comes to Cape Town regularly as she adores this city and is able to combine some work with play. This time she decided that she wanted to do a portrait shoot for herself both in studio and on location. (I love it when people want this option as there are such different images that you can get from both. Studio is more controlled and with more focus on individual aspects on someone wheras location is more about people being complemented by various things around them - there is always different light and textures to be found around.)
Once we had done some shots in studio, we headed outdoors to Muizenberg and the wind was raging in true Cape Town summer-style, but it added a flow of movement and energy. Looking at these images, I don't think you would say that we were battling against sand in our faces...
Heike was just lovely to photograph - she is a strong woman with a zest for life, a youthful and adventurous spirit as well as the most beautiful blue eyes.
