Regular Random – Crate of Flowers

Lately, I feel like the only time I get to sneak in a regular random shoot is while I am waiting for a client to show up, that’s OK it is becoming like a little mini meditation session before my shoot. The only drawback is I am using silk flowers and not real ones. I…

Winter Workshops – VPC Dark and Moody Fruit

Fabulous Friday – I’ve Leeked

Still Life in the Studio – Dark and Moody

Spent a few hours in the Studio working on some new Dark and Moody for fun and ideas for an upcoming workshop. I adore the Eiffel Tower and florals on black perspex, such fantastic reflections, the red chillies were fun and the sugar on the strawberry, loads of fun, but so, SO messy!! I hope…
