"Very little is needed to make a happy life"
“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking”
– Marcus Aurelius
This shoot was extremely special as this client has just embarked on a huge journey. She arrived in the UK after returning to her place of birth after 66 years in South Africa. She is an inspiration as she has come over in search of new beginnings. She left all that she knew and has embraced every opportunity given to her.
Chatting to her was so refreshing in that everything about being in the UK is so exciting, we are quick to be desensitised to our surroundings and everything that makes the UK so great. She was in awe of how green everything was and commented on the beautiful spring flowers that are everywhere at the moment. This lead me to the idea of adding colour to her shoot by using some tulips as well as a couple of her scarfs to add some fun.
Ultimately what touched me most is that I am reminded of the fact that age is nothing but a number, that we should never be afraid to face new opportunities or challenges. We are never too old to start something new.
What a special way to mark this new chapter of her life. Thank you for being such fun.
