I'm always looking for ways to stretch myself as a photographer. Recently, Review got in touch to collaborate with what I thought would be a shoot for their April collection. It turned out that they sent me three outfits to play with. The one I had the least ideas for was a stunning purple beaded dress. It was perfect for an elegant cocktail party for an engagement or wedding, but that gave me no ideas of how to shoot it. When playing with the fabric my brain came up with something... very bold.

Autumn Birds and Roses

A favourite quote from one of my favourite poets is: ‘April is the cruellest month’. That’s from T.S. Eliot’s The Wasteland. I love the quote but for me, April is usually the opposite. It’s a month changed from my favourite season. The days go from too hot to perfect. There’s a chill at night and in the early morning that makes you feel alive. The sun can still have some bite if you get caught in it.

Shopping for a Van

12 Apr 2019

Since getting my van, every second person tells me they wish they could do the same and of those people, plenty are actually serious about taking the plunge. I get hit up with heaps of questions about how I made the choice to buy the van that I bought, so here are the parameters I set when searching.

Happy birthday to me! This year I decided to take matters into my own hands and unapologetically make a big deal of my birthday. After all, I spend more time around myself than anyone else. I bought myself presents, told absolutely everybody it was my birthday, went away for a rock climbing trip with friends. I got my sister to go out for breakfast with me at one of our favourite spots. I took heaps of photos of heaps of things. 

Sovereign Hill - Lost Trades

1 Apr 2019

This school holidays Sovereign Hill has an incredible hands-on program. It’s not just a living museum with buildings you can wander through and people in costume, you now get to immerse yourself in the trades and times by making something for yourself. I was really chuffed that the team at Sovereign Hill asked if I had a spare day to do a trial run of some of their Easter activities before they open up in the coming weeks. They picked out a couple for me and I grabbed my sister and went to have a go.
