We're constantly working a season or 2 ahead and in June this year we shot our Summer '17 campaign.  

Even though it was the middle of Winter we decided to take a punt (and a whole lot of blankets) and shoot outdoors.  I got married at Bangalla in Scotland Is. and it's absolutely beautiful (check it out here - incidentally, it's for sale if you're in the market for a multi million dollar hideaway on a car-less island in Sydney's north) and have always wanted to go back so this was a perfect excuse.  Legend photographer Tim Jones and I caught a water taxi to reccy the site one cold May morning and even in the grey drizzle it still looked amazing - perfect for our shoot.  We booked it and for the next 2 weeks were glued to the forecast - which was becoming increasingly cold and wet.

Two days before our shoot forecasters started warning of an impending storm and they were so right!  At the last minute we booked a studio and shot the Summer campaign inside while the storm raged outside.  We didn't get to shoot at Bangalla but with the help of central heating and a few storm lashed palm fronds foraged from the wet streets of Rosebery we recreated Summer.  Our model Paulina was absolutely brilliant and it was such a fun day.

Thank you to our beautiful inside and out model Paulina Grochowina, photographer extraordinaire Tim Jones, and hair and make-up legend Tiffany Mooney

these images share summery, vintage tones which take me back to my childhood.  colours are equally muted and vibrant - reminding me of the lollies we ate, the adults we wanted to be, and the big fake plastic jewels we used for dress-ups.  i hope this sparks a lovely trip down memory lane for you too x

a few of my favourite black + white images from the late 60's and 70's. these are all about shapes and composition.  they're clearly vintage but feel so modern, almost futuristic.  I love the creativity of that era, it feels so exploratory, but with incredible attention to detail and absolute respect for clean lines and white space.  my virgo heart sings when i see these images.

in the absence of seeing family this christmas - and all year - my sister gifted me a doily made by my great-grandmother.  it reminded me of the importance of little things, and that in the pursuit of 'the big thing' i'd lost track of what really matters.
