If you've ever wondered what goes on at a "model style shoot" this is kinda it.

We sent all the final images to Hil Muller from the States (Springbok Designs)
WOW! Where to start. Melissa booked her shoot with us about a month in advance, she was so super excited, but nervous at the same time as this was her first shoot ever. On the 3rd of March 2013, the day of the shoot had finally arrived and the weather definately played along, crystal blue skies, hot sunshine and not a breath of wind.
