To be honest, I was just fluffing around with this piece on my long weekend, none of it is my content (that was my point) it is a composite of about 5 or 6 different images, he is such a cute kid… I still get all arty every now and then ūüôā ~ Julz

In The Studio – In Bed with Marilyn

Inspired by Douglas Kirkland’s White Sheet shoot with Marilyn Monroe in 1961, the softness, the feminity, the innocence and subtle sexuality of Marilyn, we wanted to recreate the ‘feel’ of those iconic photos.¬† I am totally in love with these White Sheet Boudoir style shots, especially in Black and White and will hopefully be doing…

Fabulous Friday – High Tea

A friend of mine recently bought me this oh so sweet oversized teacup and saucer, so pretty in pale green and florals; how could I resist a quick photo session? Shot on black perspex, with some pretty silk roses and my little concrete bird. Love the reflections as well. I seem to be going ga-ga…
