A previously unreleased photograph of South African fitness writer (The Jog Blog), model, television personality (Survivor SA) and my good friend Brigitte Willers. As the seasons were changing from autumn to summer here in Cape Town late last year, Brigitte and I met at her beautiful home to do a little photoshoot. This is one of my favorite images from that shoot, aside from the photographs featuring her little boy, Sam. A wonderful day rounded off with a few splashes of champagne and sunny weather. Such a pleasure photographing you Brigitte!
