Fleur De Mai

When I saw Dear Deer sharing an image that they had had done, I absolutely loved the soft colours, the style and the gentleness of the images.  Rubina’s social media is beautiful, and immediately draws you in as you get a snapshot into not only her talent, but also her passion for what she does.  I am sure that you will fall in love with it too as you see her gorgeous creations and creativity.


Your name: Rubina Fourie  images

Business name: Fleur De Mai

Social media handles: Instagram and Website

What are 3 fun facts about you: I love to travel, love dogs, and love music.

Tell me a little more about your business: Fleur de Mai started out of the blue really. I saw some cute illustrations on Instagram and started learning. I started in November 2019 and has been going since. My online store is launching in the near future with a brand name change.

How would you describe your style of art: I love minimalistic and neutral colours for my illustrations. But once in a while i will have a pop of colour in there.

Have you always been creative: Not at all. I am more analytical than creative but i started learning and find out you can do anything you set your mind to.

Do you do custom orders: I do custom orders for weddings, birthdays and all occasions 🙂

How much is an order from you: A single portrait is R350 and every additional person added is R150.

What is your favourite piece that you have done: There are so many and all of them are so unique. My favourite changes every week lol.

Why do you encourage people to support local: Local businesses strive to bring the best for its people and without us supporting them they do not survive and by our support we are helping them build their dreams.

How did lockdown affect you: It did not really. it allowed me to have more free time to spend on my designs.

Quote you live by: Different doesn’t mean wrong. I love this saying because we are all different and we can all learn from each other and that’s the beauty of being different

Anything else you want to add: I think as an artist and small business, growing an audience on Instagram is hard and sometimes discouraging but I have learned that every like and comment is special because someone took the time to like and to comment and we have to appreciate every little thing that makes our community on Instagram. Likes and follows are not the most important thing. Staying true to the brand and delivering is what makes you, YOU!

Don’t you adore her?  And her style of art?

It was such an honour getting to know Rubina, and she has been so kind right from the very first message I sent to her.  I cannot wait to see her flourish, and more of her images tagged across your social media.

Have a beautiful day lovelies, and thank you for taking the time to read my blog, support local, and always choose kindness x

In The Jacaranda’s

I feel truly blessed to have a friend who takes the most stunning pictures.

Meghan McCabe has shot my entire family, including my animals & every time I lose my breath as I look through the final results.

I am certainly no model. I am overweight, I am clumsy, & I end up laughing my way through every shoot.  But Meghan makes me feel comfortable & beautiful – & isn’t that what we all need?

This is my absolute favourite time of the year & seeing the gorgeous purple flowers from the Jacaranda’s brings a smile to my face – so what an honour to be photographed by one of the top photographers in a location that makes me believe in fairies once again.

We got to use a stunning dress from Cherry Blossom Dresses, & it was the absolute dream.  It made me feel feminine & sexy at the same time, & fell so beautifully in all the pictures – I am sure you can agree that this was the absolute cherry on top of these gorgeous photos.

I was also extremely honoured to use flowercrowns from Opgedollie & Sunkissed Handmade in my shoots, which made for perfect branding images (given the name of my blog!) as well as bringing out my inner child.

This was an absolute dream come true, & I am forever grateful to Meghan for giving me this opportunity & for her absolute passion for taking stunning pictures.

If you are looking for a photographer in Joburg, & want to be made to feel like a beautiful woman – please contact Meghan.  Her talent speaks for itself.
