This week we don’t have one, but two Models of the Week. They do almost everything together like different sports, photoshoots, family visits and enjoying their time in Cape Town. We’re talking about the gorgeous twin models Janneke and Maayke Scherpenhuyzen.

When they were little girls they already figured out what they liked the most. They had little photoshoots with each other and knew that modeling was something they wanted to do in the future. They are not only sisters but also best friends, Janneke and Maayke do a lot of shoots and runways together, which only makes them closer.

At first, Maayke and Janneke might look identical, but in an early interview we had with the two of them they mentioned that they’re actually very different from each other. Of course they have the same interest and passions in life, but it seems that Maayke is more the organizing type and Janneke is more the one who takes risks and decides spontaneous things. Looks like a great combination to keep each other balanced.

The sisters are both signed in with D&A Model Management in Cape Town, where they currently live. It looks like they are living their dream! We see the most beautiful pictures of them, that makes us all want go to Africa too! Besides their busy modeling life they love to do sports and especially to go hiking together.
Looking at this beautiful view.. I see why they love doing this!

Although they are living in a paradise at the moment, their family is still in their hometown in the Netherlands. Sometimes they have to go back for a little family visit. But they don’t mind that at all. It’s always good to see your family after a long time and some rain, wind and snow for a change, doesn’t harm 😉

Girls night out! 👯 #twinsreunited #dinner #girlsnightout #nijmegen @blondepater #family #qualitytime 🙌
