It is hard to believe that I took these pictures at the start of the month. It was so warm and sunny, almost feels lie a lifetime ago. While I am enjoying the slight chill in the air, I find the shorter days call for hibernation. Anyone else just want to stay home all wrapped up?
Anyway, it was lovely to get Alex from Rebel Waite in front of camera again. I am a huge fan of her work, especially as my uniform tends to be jeans and a smart blouse. Her luxury shirts offer a modern twist on the classic piece. Check out her website for more information. New collection will be online soon so keep an eye out for details! Below we dressed one of Alex's most popular shirts two ways. What do you prefer?
Wow how is it Sunday already? I have literally just walked in the door with all my equipment exhausted but so happy. I have had a wonderful afternoon/ evening working with the lovely Kimberley and Molly from Unapologetic. More information on the soon! For now I thought I would share some images from a recent headshot shoot with the charming Martin Brooks. It was an absolute pleasure having him in front of my lens and am very happy with the range of looks we captured. Please find a few of my favourite below. You can also find more examples of my works under the portrait section on the left. Feel free to drop me a message for any details, thanks!
It has been a wonderfully busy week full of shoots. I am exhausted but so happy. I have shot so much content, in a variety of genres and can not wait to share details with you soon. In the meantime I would like to share some images I shot last week. I had an idea which I got to bring to life with the stunning and incredibly talented Kimberley Collins. I have been lucky to shot with Kimberley a few times and again I am blown away with her beauty. Please take a look at a few of my favourites pictures below.
It has been a month since my last post and well this silent treatment isn't really me. Now this post is a personal one so please feel free to skip if your are not in the mood. You see last month I got a text message which sent my world crashing down. Within two hours I was packing my bags and on my way home to Brisbane. My mum wasn't well and while I still struggle to find the right words, put simply, she passed away. I still feel numb from the shock but also very lucky as I was able to hold her hand and see her one last time.
No matter the situation, it is difficult to say goodbye. Some moments I feel okay and then it hits me like a ton of bricks and I feel overwhelmed by her loss. Life must go on, and I am trying to pick up the pieces and get back to London life. This post has been haunting me, not sure if I should address the issue or ignore it and pretend nothing has happened. As much as I would love to do the latter I thought just like our other European adventures I needed to address it.
Now, I am sure it is going to take some time to adjust. Wrestle with all those emotions and start to feel normal. It will (I hope) get easier, and for me, I could not have done this without my friends and boyfriend. I am very lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life, both sides of this crazy world. People who mean the absolutely world to me and because of their love kept me together.
So I ask you all to enjoy a nice glass of red in my mum's honour. She was an incredible, strong woman who taught me to appreciate the arts. My love of films and photography grew from her encouragement. So ladies and gentlemen for the last time please let me introduce you my mum.
