Descend into Dusk

 When I organise photoshoots I always find the location the hardest piece of the puzzle to organise. Whether it's that I can't find somewhere that has the right look or I can find somewhere but they want to charge a fortune/we can't get access/is on the other side of the world, it can be really difficult. But sometimes the perfect location pops up on your instagram feed and it belongs to your friend and you know you have to do a shoot there because it is beautiful.

And that was this flat.

Layers of peeling wallpaper, perfect muted tones, torn paper on the floor. A space in decay that we imagined our girl had grown from and was part of the building itself. Her outfits merge with the colour palette of each room - layers of lace and organza grow up her body, torn ruffles of silk and tulle burst out of seams and vintage wallpaper prints combine with soft lace. Her hair is tangled and knotted, braiding and lace from her clothing weave their way up and around her head. Decaying and dying flowers grow out of the peeling walls and cascade down the fireplace onto the remnants of the flat's previous existence.

Descend into Dusk.

LIKE A DAYDREAM

It was an absolute joy to see our 'Like a Daydream' photoshoot featured in the Herald Magazine on Saturday, there is nothing better than seeing your work in print. The shoot started life as an idea between myself and the wonderful florist Linzi from Jack Fleuriste. Taking inspiration from Edward Scissorhands, pastel poodles and Tim Walker shoots we wanted to create a surreal, dream world with an overload of candy colours and florals. 
We had the wonderful dream team of Paul Marr photographing, Roy Rogers doing hair and Rachel Gallagher on Make up and with our gorgeous model Rhiannon, everything came together just perfectly.

I absolutely love the images we created so here are the full set for you to have a gander through.

B L O O M

Wahhhhhhh, I am so super excited to be writing this post, as I have the incredibly stunning set of images from the bloom shoot to share.

The idea for the shoot started from the Bloom Floral Separates and well lets just say it naturally grew from there (sorry cant resist a bad pun). The concept was for all things botanical and nature inspired so flora, fauna, butterflies and more were all thrown in the mix. With Di from Myrtle and Bracken creating an incredible living wall and natural and wild bouquets and Janet from Rene Walrus going wild with real butterflies combined with her incredible accessories (that ear cuff, if only I didnt wear glasses!)Then of course the amazing Caro Weiss photographing what we had created, it truly was a wonderful shoot to be part of. 

I love working on collaborative shoots with my incredibly creative and talented friends and the bloom shoot was definitely one where the stars aligned (even with our original model cancelling last minute!)I adore the ladies I worked with on this shoot and am very proud of what we have created. I also just realised they were also all my wonderful suppliers and a part of my wedding, seriously book them folks you will not regret it.
