Balance awareness week starts today , the 19th of September till the 25th. I thought I would use my platform to share information. I have borrowed these words from The Menieres Society who offer a range of support and information for people.
The aim of the week is to broaden understanding of vestibular (inner ear) disorders and how they affect people’s day to day lives. We’re often told by those affected that their family, friends and colleagues don’t understand what they are going through due to the hidden nature of this disability.
Many people haven’t even heard of these conditions and we want to change that. As tomorrow is Blue Monday I thought I would share this blue image of Prince Jai Jai from a shoot earlier this year.
So you may or may not have noticed that I did not post last week. I spent the weekend in Edinburgh and rather than posting a half-baked post I decided to miss a week. Sometimes a girl just needs some time off.
Anyway, you also might have noticed that I have finally updated my website and while I still have to add more images (a never ending job) it is so rewarding looking back at old work.
As the weather gets colder I am reaching for those important layers and thought I would share some images I took for Theo + George. I fell in love with all their elegant pieces, such good quality and the cashmere was so soft and dreamy. I may or may not have a few items in my basket now that the weather has cooled down. Some of my favourite images are actually outtakes where my flash didn't fire. As I shoot in RAW I was able to create a moody edit which I love. Let me know your favourites and if you want a closer look at any of the pieces click here.
So technically it is a day late but what can I say except I blame it on the long weekend. This week I wanted to share the latest images I took for Jai Jai Prince's song First Kiss on his debut EP. Jai and I have been shooting for a few years now and I love the creative freedom and trust that I am given. If you have worked with me before you will often hear me say, I've got an idea or can we try something out. My mind never stops and I always like trying something different. With this project it was these, more creative images that made the final cut. After fulfilling the beauty brief I wanted to try a different style. A more contrasting look which Jai preferred. Do you have a favourite?
So it has been an entertaining week with both video and still shoots as well as social activities. Lots of fun projects to keep me happily busy. I can not wait to share when everything is finished. I had a bit of travelling this week which was great to visit new places but man it does all add up and I am definitely feeling it this Sunday evening. Asking for a friend but when is it too early to call it a night?
So this week I thought I would share some images from a fairly recent shoot. I love playing with perspective and trying to create dynamic images. Obviously these were taken in the last few minutes once we had the money shot but I like to mix things up and offer some more playful options.
