Aloha! Meet Aimee Johnson, the beautiful Style Blogger behind Aloha Everybody. What I love about her Style Blog is that she gives practical styling advice for your wardrobe; shares outfit ideas; her opinions on the latest trends; and how to wear or what not to wear with a no nonsense Melbourne lifestyle in mind. I’ve been following her work for a while so it was a huge honour when she contacted me recently to help create a strong street style images for her blog, specifically dedicated to the Melbourne Spring Racing coming up this Saturday. So here are the highlights, but be sure to check out her blog for more images and advice on what to wear at the Races here.
Just on this note, I’ll be at the Races for Derby Day, Melbourne Cup Day and Oak’s Day snapping up the event and street style fashion on the field, especially in and around the Bird Cage, Lexus and Emirates Marquee. Be sure to say hi! As always, may the best hat shine! xo

I met a lovely photography student from RMIT a few days ago who visited my studio and interviewed me personally for his school assignment. He asked me a very good question, “what’s the most important thing to look for when shooting?” I told him that to create powerful story telling images is the way you use your surrounding light. Whether it is natural light (I LOVE shooting subjects in backlight and soft golden light) or using artificial light. Light sets the mood and adds so much dimension to an image.
To give you an idea what I mean, here’s one of my most favourite photo shoots to date with style blogger, Jess Dempsey from What Would Karl Do.
I must finish this post by saying that I’ve been receiving so many gorgeous emails lately from all sorts of people ranging from students, fashion bloggers, fashion clients to magazine/fashion editors from the US! I am deeply humbled by all your enquiries about my work, or wanting to work with me (or assist) and following my fashion work on Instagram. Thank you so much xo

There is one thing you need to know about New Yorkers. They love their monochrome. As much as they love their colour and all sorts of textures, black and white is their NYC uniform.
Here are the highlights taken during New York Fashion Week.
As per usual, please credit my work by linking the image to my website (www.karen.woo.au) or tagging “@heykarenwoo” to your social media posts. Thank you for sharing x

The most laid back kinda outfit anyone can throw together, the Double Denim look.
When I’m out shooting, I like to wear things that look great and comfortable. It’s got to have pockets so I can put my CF memory cards, comfy pair of sneakers and a light back pack to carry my camera gear. Did I tell you that I packed one pair of Lacoste sneakers to NY Fashion week, and came back with six pairs of shoes where four pairs were all sneakers? My white YSL pumps are definitely one of my favourite pairs as spotted here.
