The West Coast of South Africa is an awesome setting for love. Romantic sunsets, beautiful beaches and glorious people. Leana Botes is one of these glorious people and she invited me to paint the story of her 21st birthday. Before the party started, Leana’s grandma, sister and brother joined her for a few portraits along the beautiful walk ways for Club Mykonos. On the beach her friends and their partners joined in the fun and we captured golden hour memories. Young love is such a beautiful and contagious thing. Leana and her sweetheart, Ruan, simply glowed with the giddy, spontaneous love of young lovers. Leana lives in the lovely town of Wellington, in the Boland, where Leana plans to complete her studies to become a teacher.
