Marise | Mandurah, AUSTRALIA | Portraits

Originally from South Africa, Marise now calls Australia home and when I first met her, it was like we had known each other for years.  If I had been able to spend more time with her, I would have loved for her to teach me how to speak a few words from her native language - it sounds so beautiful!! 

With her love of nature and an appreciation for Australian foliage, I knew the perfect place to go for photographs, so we drove about 30minutes to a farm that specializes in growing different varieties of Australian foliage for florists. To see immature eucalyptus on trees is simply breathtaking & then there is the gorgeous smell, quite simply divine but we had to get right to business, because it was very late in the day and the sun was sinking fast!!
