This beautiful woman, mother of three, wife, model, stylist and icon has been an pleasure to work with and to consequently get to know. Rika has been my go-to stylist for many shoots; I am never disappointed in her work as she always pulls out all the stops! I have since met her three beautiful boys and hubby, Mike.
Rika wanted a shoot that was both family oriented and a little glam, so I specifically chose this amazing part of our world for the Van Der Veen family. All the little pathways around St Stithian’s lend themselves to some mini adventure walks with the little ones, while the church itself and old stone railway track allow for a little bit of the glam. Rika’s gorgeous dress was made by Linette van Rensburg, owner of the local Grahamstown boutique dress shop, Pearl Reef Boutique.
Choosing which images to edit from this lovely shoot was one of the toughest things I have had to do in a while … Thanks Rika and Michael for a wonderful afternoon out and about and I look forward to our next shoot!
