Perth

Behind the Scenes

A few weeks ago, on a Sunday afternoon in Leederville.

Caitlin is doing her magic with a stunning make up. Model Holly, telling jokes and stories, us laughing our heads off. Nageena bringing absolutely beautiful bunches and bouquets of flowers. Caitlin's partner making us a cuppa. Me making notes for the shoot and maybe a shopping list.... I was also wandering around with my camera, being in everyone's way and documenting this all. I just love the 'making of' photos.

I originally had the idea for this shoot after new year, while having a holiday Down South. First thing was to ask Caitlin if she was on board. Being back in the city, and having this shoot in back of my head, I accidentally (lucky me) met Holly, and her hair. Next step was finding a florist which was more difficult task than I thought. Mainly because our date for the shoot was right after Valentines Day. Should have thought of that! But thanks to one of my colleague Rhianna, who let social media to know about her talented florist friend Nageena (Peter and Petals). She saved our shoot.

Of course it's a bit an effort to put all together and organise a styled shoot but it's totally worth it. Love how things fell into place. I'm incredible lucky to have these creative people around and be able do this work with them. This is the reason everyone should do more of their own projects!

More photos from the shoot coming soon!

Homesickness

This photoshoot with stunning Sherry feels like it happened just few weeks ago. Actually these photos were taken just day before I was getting on the plane and my time in Finland was about to start. Which was ummmm... almost three months ago! Today I'm able to say, I return home in six weeks. So next month! Summer in Finland has gone way too fast. Time flies when you have fun, right.

Despite how much fun I have had here, these photos reminds me about Perth and how much I'm missing the city already. But I have to put those homesick thoughts away, I'm not quite ready to leave Finland yet. Still have few exciting jobs to do and big bunch of important people to spend time with.

Looking forward to go back and work with all inspiring people, as lovely and bright as Sherry. We had very good session in the morning light, right in middle of Perth CBD. Air was a bit crispy, winter was just behind the corner. Sherry was tough, she handled the cold extremely well! I'm glad we made this shoot happen before I flew out and she started her exciting journey.
