I rocked up to FRM Model Management yesterday to meet Stephan Bucknall to chat all things models and fashion photography, and towards the end of the our conversation a gorgeous fresh face, Paige walked into the office. Stephan then asked me if I wanted to take a few snaps of Paige, and of-course without hesitation I took his ancient mini Canon compaq camera and went around the streets for a spontaneous shoot. Though I wished I had my big guns (for quality purposes), sometimes it is a good test of your photography skills. I often get asked, what camera to buy but quite honestly all you need is mastering good understanding of light, creative direction, composition and creative eye, and you are set to create amazing images.
Anyway, to end this post I am super thrilled to be working with FRM Model Management so you will be seeing a lot of stunning fresh faces popping up on my feed and blog. So stay tuned xx

It was all star cast at TopShop Emporium with Spring Racing Royalty, Kate Waterhouse; Elle Fashion Director, Rachel Wayman; and Fashion Illustrator, Aaron Favaloro who gave us a night to remember with their great spring racing styling tips and beautiful fashion illustrations to take home and hang on our wall proudly.
This is how the night unfolded…..
It is my great pleasure to introduce the lady bosses, Leah (pronounced LAYA) and Dully (pronounced DULIE) behind the powerhouse brand, Milk and Soda. They are Australia’s go-to online destination for kids accessories, shoes and clothes.
To take their online store up a notch, they will be proud stockists for Laer Kids. If you haven’t seen or heard of Laer, but have seen the famous images of Kanye West’s daughter, North West in a mini black leather jacket and tutu … well THIS IS THE BRAND. All their leather pieces are handmade in USA. I am especially in love with their Shrunken Moto Gold Stud leather jacket (click here to shop). It will lift any boring outfit you own to the next level (well I definitely had my fair share of compliments and snaps at MSFW).
Therefore to celebrate the coming of Laer Kids and Milk & Soda, we have collaborated to bring you a golden editorial piece. Enjoy x
