There's always one thing which stands out on a shoot and that we still talk about months later.  Our Spring shoot with the incredibly beautiful, vivacious and very French Gabrielle was memorable for lots of reasons but the one thing which Tricia and I STILL talk about is her skin.  It was seriously like VELVET.  You know when you sit on a velvet couch and you just have to pat it.  It was like that.  (We didn't sit on Gabs but we did pat her arm).

There was not one imperfection.  It was smooth, perfectly tanned and there's no other word for it, literally like velvet.  We almost did away with our make-up artist and photoshopping was barely necessary. 

We're both in our late 30's and spent a lot of our childhood ... teen years ... 20's ... early 30's... now... on the beach.  We're doing ok for our age, and Gabs had pretty exceptional skin to start with, but holy moly, this post is dedicated to all the 20-somethings living it large in the sun.  Don't forget to spf! Or as my husband says - be sun genius xx

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.
great little things, like the doily my great-grandmother made

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.
