The Smallest Tribe

I get really excited when I meet rad people. Every couple getting married, every family, every model that books me for a shoot means I get to spend an hour or a day getting to know them. Sometimes I get to meet their rad friends and become friends with them. It’s an awesome feeling when the universe brings you all these cool people to meet and you get to photograph them and they become your friends.

And I get to call this work! ;)

Anyway, that’s just a convoluted way of saying to all my awesome clients and friends I’ve met: Thank you for being so rad! xxx

So speaking of rad invididuals, last year I unexpectedly got introduced to Kathryn from The Smallest Tribe​, whose organic kids clothing line I’d cyber stalked for months, and whattttt? she wanted ME to photograph her studio AND possibly her lookbook? Hell yes. You gotta check out her stuff. The coolest patterns and designs. Drool. Not to mention she’s a hella cool chick to hang out and have coffee with.

And so finally last week this happened. Do stay tuned for more. :)

Tropical autumn romance, a styled shoot

I recently had the privilege of collaborating with the incredible wedding florist Gab of Nine Blooms for a styled shoot. She is one of the most talented florists I know in Australia, with an intuitive sense of style that exceeds brides’ expectations and imagination. We only had a few days to dream up this shoot but I think it turned out pretty awesomely. The most important part was we all had fun. OK maybe the bubbly helped. OK maybe 11am was a bit too early for a drink, but it helped our fab model Kate relax in front of the camera and Gab and me get into the groove.

 

We envisioned a moody, bold and romantic theme with charcoal, white and dark pink hues and lots of green foliage. The aim of this styled shoot was to give brides some inspiration if they were looking for something different than beach, rustic or vintage themes for their wedding day.
