Earlier this year I met this gorgeously, magnetic woman with the most beautifully warm smile and kind heart. Her name is Shungu. After an hour in her hotel room being pampered by Bia from Little Harlequin on makeup and hair, we popped out into the vibrance of Bree Street in Cape Town, on a beautifully sunny morning.

At that time, Shungu was going through a transition phase in her personal and professional life and this shoot marked a significant moment in that journey.

The resulting images from Shungu’s photo shoot are just as bright and vibrant as she is, so take some time and delight in the gorgeousness that is Shungu Chirunda, read what she had to say in her own words…
