exciting march

What an amazing way this month has started… my good friend and fab artist Amanda Hiller has been featured in Period Living magazine. Amanda’s work is so lovely and when I first heard about the news of this article, I didn’t realise the scale of it… Amazing!! Getting my copy tomorrow!!

But the other exciting thing about this article is that some of my photos are featured in it as well 😀 So happy! Its a great way of showing off our continuous cooperation.

Here are a few photos I took of Amanda, her work and her studio.

Enjoy

bring back the 50s

Last week I had the chance to be an assistant on a fab photo shoot for Rumour Couture… two gorgeous models and three locations. It kind of made me reminisce of my first assistant job I did for a documentary (ages ago – in another life 🙂 )… felt great and at the end of it I was aloud to take some shots too, which proper cheered me up 😀 Here are a few, all taken with my brand spanking new 50mm lens – so in love with it, I don’t even know if I’ll ever take it off now 🙂

Thank you to all of you, I had a fab day with you guys xx

 

 

 

 

P.S.: here is a song that kind of dominated my last two days… totally not matching the photos but its beautiful 🙂 enjoy

Is there a recipe for patience?_2

Well I didn’t have to wait long 🙂 I got ‘go ahead’ from customer, replies to emails, things got sorted (at least some of them) and the dreaded moment came too, my bike sort of gave up on me today, so finally that needs fixing now.

Oh, in the mean time, I have an almost finished bag, saw at least 4 movies and took photos of some amazing ladies. Still a lot of editing to do, but here is a sneak peek

lovely things No 1

If you read this blog you know, but if this is the first time you ventured over here, then I’ll tell you 🙂 I love taking photographs… One of my childhood dream come true really. I know that some must think that ‘it’s only a push of a button, what’s the big fuss?’, but I find so much pleasure when I manage to take a good shot, or when my image does justice to something beautiful.

I find product photography really gratifying. For some reason I don’t always take good shots of my products (maybe because they aren’t good, who knows? :-p) but for example I’m really pleased with the photos I took of a friend’s jewellery. All taken in natural light with my standard lens on my lil’ Nikon 🙂 Although my next step is investing in a 50mm lens, for that shallow depth of field and fab bokeh 🙂

But anyway, have a look:

These photos were taken of Jane Dearman‘s jewellery and they are all available for purchase in her Etsy Shop. Also what is really nice with Jane’s jewellery (apart from them being so amazingly delicate and some of them so complex) is that they can be made to order, which means you can have the perfect jewellery to match your outfit and event 🙂

Thanks for visiting

first day of summer

I feel a bit guilty for being slightly on the down side in my last post. Having great friends and a fab fair last saturday really did me the world of good. Big thank you to all who helped me promote my makes and thank you to all who decided my bags and other things are worth buying.

So yes, I am gona continue sewing a little bit longer now 🙂 and I just rearranged all my fabrics as I was given a whole lot more the other day

spring is just the best

Spring is great, if I could I would move around in different countries to enjoy spring at least two or three times a year and maybe have one summer. Yeah, I could do with that 🙂

Here are a few photos from the last couple of weeks

Also, I have been nominated for this ‘Sunshine Award’, for which I’m really grateful, I just didn’t have time to sort my act out out do what this nomination requires. I promise I’ll do my best to answer questions and stuff and show you my new collection of bags too.

Until then go and enjoy a bit of spring sun 🙂

camera, lights… studio :)

There was very little sunshine today so I thought I’ll take my chances in the studio… same daffodils 🙂

I feel extremely lucky to have good friends, specially one with a photography studio equipped with lights and backdrops and all the goodness you need for some experimentation. Thank you Garreth 🙂 I only had half an hour this time and these images are my results:
