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

it's a widely known fact that menopause means hot flushes and alcohol induces these hot flushes.  safe to say, much of the 'here to help' literature around menopause recommends an alcohol free existence to keep flushes under control.  this sits well within the societal move towards zero alcohol adult beverage alternatives, and the mental and physical benefits of an alcohol-free lifestyle.   if you want to punch those articles in the face, read this.
