Katinka is a whole lot of personality packaged into a blonde-hair, blue-eyed, long-legged teen. Her matric dance portraits are something we both wanted to approach in a unique and fun way. Showcasing a bit more soul than the normal fake-smile, dead-eyes snaps that you see on social media. I wanted to capture her fun and quirky personality, but also show how her beauty shines through no matter how silly she can get. It is always a pleasure to work with people can show me a little bit of their real and raw selves. Being in matric and finishing up school is kind of a big deal. It’s the last time you’ll really live with your folks as a child in their house and although all of these changes are exciting, it’s important to acknowledge this end of a season and document this very special time. It was an absolute pleasure and a privilege to capture her vibe.
I adore her style and the dress was absolutely to die for. Her sparkly rose gold sequin dress is definitely going to be remembered for years! After establishing that we both wear the same size shoes I think I need to adopt her as my little sister. It could come quite handy to share a wardrobe with this one!
Make sure you follow Katinka on instagram, she’s going to make her mark in this world, I’m certain of it.
