Here’s a little photo diary of some scenes I documented on my most recent trip to Byron Bay, for my dear friend Romy Friedman’s “STYLE ME ROMY” 10th birthday. It was a celebration over Kombucha vodka’s (yes), polka dot bikini’s, a whole lot of tanned torso’s, all very poolside over some serious pool floating devices (BY VILLA 26) that looked like it came straight out of a Slim Aaron’s “poolside” soiree.
Yep, back for a while. Nothing I love more than the comfort of working in my comfy’s from uniqlo after 6 weeks on the road, city hopping, and living out of a suitcase playing dress up’s for fashion week. Here’s me with no make up, a day at the office in my ultimate work zone.

Oh, how exciting it is to be able to work behind and in front of the camera.
A lot of you often wonder what my job entails - well, this is a perfect example of some of the wonderful projects I get to be apart of! I am always shooting and always creating content for somebody or something new. One of the main reasons why I started this blog in the first place, was to have an outlet to express myself creatively, through imagery - I was always told no, or told otherwise, so... naturally I rebelled, and this space was born. A space, that has given me endless opportunities to collaborate and grow, to create what I want, whenever I want, with people I love, with brands I love.
From the idea, the mood boarding, the styling, to then finding a location, team, casting, and then of course the funnest part; the actual shoot - and how could I forget, the curating and editing of the final images. All of these components, are essential in each content piece I produce on here -although it looks effortless and thrown together in just one post, a lot of hard work gets put into the organisation and preparation of each shoot - and with a lot of heart! So... as I take a little sigh (out of reflection) on all the projects I've worked on this year, I am a little proud to present to you my latest photography project for The Upside, who wholeheartedly supported my every decision through the entire process (sometimes scary, but so very empowering). Thank you to the team for putting your absolute trust in my work, without any hesitations. It is one of the many reasons I continue to stay inspired and creative. And, thank you to my Nathan for being my right hand man, always. Xxxxx
