Dynamic Kia Johnson is a South African radio and television personality – her enthusiasm and vivaciousness is contagious. She currently hosts a show on Radio 2000 (Saturday Night Live from Cape Town). I first met Kia on the television set of the Expresso Breakfast Show (SABC3). A few years later; and now on her second pregnancy. The mother-to-be never looked more radiant. This was essentially a pregnancy shoot, shot at her home. We turned the lounge upside down – rigging backdrops and moving furniture.
The shoot is a celebration of her growing family. I shot beautiful and tender moments between her and Branny.
We wanted to keep it natural, yet beautiful – nothing contrived. I used a black backdrop as well as a large white skrim diffusing a studio flash, creating a backdrop of soft ethereal light.
Most recently, Kia has been producing a series of ‘Preggie Self-Defence – Protecting Mom & Baby’ videos with Quentin Chong from Dragon Power Muaythai, MMA & Fitness Centre.
Kia, amongst her many talents, is also a Motivational Speaker. kiajohnson.co.za
