Short & Sweet
I don't know what it is about this weather but my migraines have been out of control. Anyone else suffer? Please send your tips my way. So I will keep this weeks post short and sweet. It was great to shoot and catch up with sustainable fashion blogger Tess Montgomery. It is always a pleasure working with Tess but I love learning new style tricks to help update your look. Make your wardrobe work for you, anyway below are a a few favourites.
Only Happy in the sun
Been feeling a little homesick recently so have had Ben Harper's She's Only Happy in The Sun playing on repeat. Crazy how certain songs can take you back in time. I have so many happy memories associated with this tune, dancing in the late afternoon Australian sunshine. Now, if summer was a dress it would be this beautiful Rixo number. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Tanya Cumberland again and super excited to share these images. It was an early start to the day but totally worth it as that morning light was just perfect. Below are a few of my favourites.
The perfect Stack
So I first discovered Daphine while working with a client and fell in love with their elegant and timeless items. I have worn silver for many many years but that was all about to change. Like most people I fell in love with the classic 'Oli' ring however, then started eyeing up the ID bracelet. A beautiful piece which is also an everyday essential. I like it because it is personalised, has my name on it but also discreetly identifies health condition on the inside. If you haven't already, check out Daphine's pieces here, I already have my eye on a few more items.
My heart breaks as the news hits about how much the Arts are suffering due to the corona virus. Going to the theatre is such a joy and I have been lucky to see a large variety of shows throughout the years. For me and my partner we have tuned into The National's live streaming on YouTube every week and feel like we might have watched the entirety of Netflix. Unfortunately this pandemic has hit us both hard financially and while we have donated I wanted to do more. So I am giving my time and skill for free. Tuesday the 11 of August I will be giving away four free Quick Pick Up Package. This includes a 45 minute shoot and 2 retouched images. Extra edits will be £25 each with £20 donated to The Actor's Benevolent Fund. To enter all you need to do is follow me on Instagram here as well as my business Facebook page here. The shoot will be in London. Comment on any image with the hashtag #rosalindalcazargiveaway for a chance to win. Winner will be announced on Monday the 10th of August on my Instagram page. You have until Sunday the 9th of August to enter. Don't forget you can add your name to the petition here. Actor David Alwyn grew a fantastic moustache for his Secret Cinema's Stranger Things show character. Seemed like the perfect time to grab a few character shots to update his portfolio. Take a look at his selection below.
