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!

And if all that wasn’t luxurious enough, the official vehicle sponsor for this event was none other than Bentley, offering chauffeur transfers to SA’s elite. It was certainly a highlight on the South African social calendar all put together by the team at Vivid Luxury PR, headed by Anina Malherbe.
