Nude shades and a famous face…

April 1

A while ago I shot the lovely April. These images are from very early in her career – she has gone on to become one of the 2013 finalists in Australia’s Next Top Model, and I couldn’t be happier for her!

Absence and return.

I haven’t been present for almost a year on this blog… that is so depressing!

I did have a good reason to be away — I got engaged, then married 🙂

I’ve just returned from my honeymoon in Vietnam, so here is a rare travel post from me.
Shots taken mostly by myself, some are by Andrew, with a point and shoot, then posted in instagram.

Please forgive the obvious quality issues 🙂




Photos are from Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An and Saigon. I was really unwell (still am) so we didn’t see everything we wanted to… we will be back!

I can’t believe I forgot to post these!

I still really love these images. Great team. Great results.

Photos/post: myself! 


I never could decide between colour or black and white for this one……. 

I know that’s ridiculously dorky of me but I just can’t help myself!












And just because I can’t get over how good this girl’s face is with nothing done to it but a Curve, here it is again….
