Portraits | 20th September 2020
The shoot began by setting the tone and intention with a short meditation to connect to Mother Nature.
As we listened to Mei-Lan Maurits speak her magic, the busy park suddenly went silent. All the couples walking the dogs, all the children playing nearby - vanished. And only when the meditation ended, did all the noise and people resume.
Later, as I was standing on the little pier on the lake looking out at the water, a small snake swam towards and then under me. Snakes represent transformation, rebirth, new beginnings and so I took it as an affirmation from the universe that this new, more intentional way of shooting was definitely the right path.
A truly magical, transformative afternoon.
