Into the Storm

Storm season is here... I can hear the rumbling! I loved this shoot with beautiful Holly at The Spit on the Gold Coast - the black clouds were rolling in but we braved it anyway. We got absolutely saturated but had so much fun and ended up with these moody, raw and powerful shots. Enjoy x

And then the storm actually hit! I love the blurred focus and mood of shooting in the torrential rain!

If you’re keen to shoot outdoors rest assured I will not make you brave cyclonic weather if you’re not up for it! We always check the weather leading up to the day and set a time to make a call on whether to proceed or not (this depends on if you have hair and make up booked, how far you’re travelling etc)

Shooting in nature definitely adds another raw dimension to the final photos and I love how unpredictable it can be!

If you’re keen to chat about ideas for your own shoot give me a shout!

Until next time,

Wild and Willing Heart

Beautiful Iselin contacted me with her idea… taking our boudoir shoot out into nature and shooting with a horse. Would I be keen? OMG yes! I had always wanted to do a shoot with horses. I had flashbacks to Barbie and her equestrian outfits so on the day I donned my black jodhpurs and black leather boots. Camera bag on. Ready.

Iselin and I arrived at the site to meet two majestic creatures - Banjo and Kona. They were big. It had been a while since I’d been around horses… I’d forgotten just how magnificent they were. And tall.

Haley from White Horse Lodge suggested we take them to the river and shoot there. It would be a bath and a photoshoot in one. She looked at my outfit. Turns out Haley runs re-wilding retreats. I looked down at my outfit - I felt like a city slicker.

We led the horses down to the river. The sun had passed over and was now behind the trees. We were the only ones there and it was magic. I took off my boots. And pants. And proceeded to do the shoot in my G-banger. It was a challenge shooting in water up to these incredibly tall creatures but it was amazing… I loved every second.

Iselin was the picture of calm in leading them and guiding them through… holding tranquil poses while Banjo and Kona had other ideas - playing in the water, splashing around, walking off. Can you tell? I think she did an incredible job!

A HUGE thank you to Haley from White Horse Lodge for allowing us to shoot with her beautiful boys and for my own little re-wilding afternoon. I hope you enjoy the photos! Scroll down to learn more of Iselin and read one of her beautiful poems…

Iselin is a yoga teacher, raw cake maker and poet… I can’t post this without sharing one of her beautiful pieces…

“I want to be that person who looks you in the eye and that really meets you. I hope to be the girl who keeps her feet firmly planted on the ground beneath her, and that when you think of me, you think of softness and peace. That you feel contentment; not suppressed emotions or pain that has been stored in dark corners of my being, because it never got my undivided attention.

I want to be her who remembers to meet herself in the mirror before she runs out the door in the morning, and who welcomes herself back every evening. Who knows when it is time to pause. Who has learnt to breathe deeply.

I want to be the woman with a warm embrace and a willing heart; who speaks of truth with her actions, who feels like truth.
I hope I always find it in me to appreciate the sunlight as it flickers through the window in the early morning hours, even during times there’s a storm raging outside. Especially then.

I hope that when I wake up alone, I will feel content; and when I don’t, remember the ways in which I can come back to myself; because I love being in my own company; because I know who I am.
I want to be her who creates time to sit in silence. The one who always always listens.

I want to hold my friends close, to kiss their faces as often as I can, and tell them “I love you”, as I feel how my body is filled with so much love. And perhaps most of all that is what I wish for; I wish for love to flood my veins and for my entire being to be the wild, wonderful and powerful embodiment of love.”
