Spent a morning with entrepreneur Yasmeen Allie, shooting profile pictures for her soon-to-launch online baked goods and savouries store. Keep your eye out for www.bakeway.co.za or check out their Facebook page.

Her workspace was being renovated and the only usable shooting area was a small corner in the kitchen. A bit of scene setting and a big block of light from my softbox pulled the whole story together for the look we had in mind.

These crumbed jalapeno samoosas were so delicious!

In this shot, Aunty Yasmeen had just turned her attention to the tv for the cricket score.
