In the studio – Vintage Boudoir

The best laid plans of mice and (wo)men…right? I had this idea for a vintage boudoir shoot ages ago. I fell in love with the backdrop and ordered it months ago, with the promise of setting up a date when it finally arrived. Well then the whole world lockdown happened and again this shoot was…

Monday’s Musings…

The clock slowly ticks and we go into May…or so they say. Apart from missing my (in-person) workshops and catching up with friends (in person), I am doing OK with the whole quarantine thing. I am mostly an introvert anyway, so spending my time pottering around here is great. My only complaint is the weather,…

In the studio – with Ms Fisher

We recently did what is probably our last model shoot for the moment, due to this damn Corona Virus. It was originally half of a workshop, but Emily had put so much time and effort into the costumes, the dress the new hat, Verdessa Fairy had made the headpiece, I finally got my new backdrop…

In the studio – 1920s Great Gatsby

Sadly this was to be my last portrait shoot in the studio, at least we ended on a bang and not a whimper hey? All of this was actually put together for a workshop, thanks to a certain virus, that workshop was cancelled, or at least postponed indefinitely. But Emily had the dress, Bec had…

In the studio – The girl in the Rose- Gold coloured dress

I won this dress and headpiece in a bushfire fundraiser auction. I actually have some grand plans for this dress, but the weather has not been cooperating. We normally have such wonderful weather in March and April, but not this year. So I figured I would capture something with it in the studio. It was…

In the Studio – The girl in the Peacock Green Dress

Before the studio was shut down indefinitely to the outside world, I was lucky to have two final, amazing sessions, this was one of them. So glad I managed to get them shot. Of course, I cannot wait to shoot more, but I guess that may have to wait. Many many years ago, I came…

Monday’s Musings…

Well that’s it apparently the world has gone crazy and each country has closed itself off from the rest of the world. Pretty easy for us Aussies and Kiwis but it does make for interesting times. I am still flying to Queensland, but only because I really want to see my daughter more than anything…

When ballerinas go bad

In case you missed it I did a lovely shoot with Emily recently who is a ballerina. At the end of the shoot, still dressed in her leotard and tutu, we got a little silly, a steampunk mask, smoke bubbles and two different coloured gel lights and creepy lighting…just love how it turned out so…

Emily, the ballerina

As I said the other day, I had a ballerina in the studio, Emily. She bought some gorgeous costumes and we had such a fun and lovely morning. We did white, black and a red outfit (I love my reds!) We got out the smoke machine and the bubble machine I even played with some…
