Yoga Power

I had the chance to work on the styling of a beautiful series of images for gorgeous Julie from Yogapower. She is just a beautiful person in and out so it was a really inspiring afternoon. She teaches Yoga in a tranquil wooden, candlelit studio on the Sunshine Coast and if you are thinking of trying yoga her classes are definitely worth a visit.

Hope you had a peaceful weekend.

Dream Team Times

A little while ago, I had the serendipitous meeting of Carla from Willow & Sage Photography. She has a love for designer and pretty pieces and an even greater love for photography. So needless to say we always have a lot to chat about!  Carla has now made herself available to collaborate on shoots with me. This is one of our more recent shoots we did of a beautiful Caloundra store called White Pepper Homewares.

A Darling Affair

I am so excited about this wedding fair that is coming up! Held on the Sunshine Coast [ my home! ] A Darling Affair is going to be just what its name states… and it will help brides and party throwers alike put on their own special affair. The line up of vendors is huge and with the cool vibe that the fairs are becoming reknowned for, it is sure to be a beautiful day. So to get you excited, here are the photos that I styled for their promotional shoot.

 A massive team was recruited to pull off this shoot so see the credits at the bottom of the post. A special thanks to Willow & Bird who sponsored my picnic props for our shoot. If you are eyeing off some of their picnic ware, make sure you head down as some of the pieces were still in store last I visited!

Welcome To The World

This week I got to hang out with first time Mum and Dad, Sharna and Trent and their new bundle of joy at their beautiful home. Master Fletcher John Raddatz, [or 'Baby Rad' as everyone called him, when he still was in his Mum's tummy] was the perfect model. He is rad by name and rad by nature! Here are some of my favourite photos from our morning, while we chatted and had cuddles with this loveable little man. It was so lovely to spend time with this new little family and see Sharna’s little touches of styling, especially in Fletcher’s nursery.

Little Fletcher, it was a pleasure to meet you. Welcome to the world little buddy. It is truly your oyster!

Easter Blessings

I just adore these photos I took for a styling collaboration with my friend Simone. I love Easter time so I had jumped at the chance to create something for this special holiday time.

Since becoming a Mum I have really started to treasure having a break. I don’t think I ever appreciated them properly before. So, stopping and having a rest this Easter weekend has meant I have had a chance to dream up some new things and get inspired all over again.

I hope that you have had a very blessed Easter too!
