Styling / Behind the scenes

DSC_3702Last weekend I styled a shoot for Danielle, with makeup and hair by Lisa and modelled by little doll face, Charlotte. In between styling and helping Danielle with some things, I managed to snap a few behind the scenes photos, as I usually try to do when I am styling a shoot, so that I can share it with you!

Working with Danielle is always such a pleasure. I feel like we have the same sort of mind-set when it comes to the process of shooting and I love that she gives me a lot of creative freedom when styling. It’s nice to find someone you feel at ease with and your vision is much the same, cause goodness knows creatives can butt heads when they feel the integrity of their work is being compromised. Anyways, here is just a few snaps from my DSLR/iPhone, and you can be sure I’ll share the final images with you when Danielle releases them.DSC_3676DSC_3683DSC_3693Processed with VSCOcam with g3 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with n3 presetDSC_3700

The Wind Rises

landingzone copyI’m so excited to be able to share with you the final images from our editorial published in the most recent issue of Bricks Magazine. Getting to work with Audrey was such a dream and she was the perfect model for this concept piece. I can’t get over how beautiful she looks (always) and what an amazing job Gerald and the whole team did on this one. If you’re interested in getting a copy of the magazine you can find it here.

Houndstooth, and other things

DSC_3723I have not had a free weekend in what seems like weeks. Mind you, I normally have Sundays free for whatever I like, but I consider a true free-of-work weekend when I have both Saturday and Sunday off. I cannot complain though, I spent most of Saturday styling another shoot for Gerald, which really doesn’t feel like work at all, but rather something that is fun and gets my creative juices flowing. The other half of the weekend was for blog and shop affairs. I’ll be honest, I’ve been feeling pretty overwhelmed with finding the time to really give my online shop the love and care it desperately needs – it’s down to the bare bones at this point. But I spent a few hours on Sunday photographing items to list all through the week and I’m hoping I can keep up with this and get back to where we were before I moved a huge amount of stock over to Odd Finds General Store and became busier than ever. I’ve also been feeling sort of uninspired with my writing recently, so we’ll just leave it at that for today.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
