It’s been so long since I’ve posted an update, but I couldn’t resist sharing one of my shoots recently with newly engaged couple Bhakthi and Tom. These guys were gorgeous and just a complete joy to be around and photograph! Feeling immensely inspired for the two weddings I have coming up, so so much love!

Well the Night Noodle Markets were a hit – I think me and about half of Melbourne went to catch some of Melbourne’s greatest food along the Birrarung Marr. No one seemed to mind the enormous queues, rain, or heat. The best part about the Night Noodle Market was being able to taste food from all over Melbourne and then get Messina Gelato afterwards – though the queues here was equally as long as Messina itself in Fitzroy. If you didn’t manage to get down to the Night Noodle Markets as part of Melbourne’s Good Food Month – here’s a little of the action you missed out on. If only a photograph could capture the smells and tastes! Thankfully those are safely preserved in my memory! Come again soon you wonderful chaos of food and wine!

I recently stumbled across the Etsy night out in Melbourne and went along to check out some of Melbourne’s latest and greatest makers. Here are a few images from the night of fun and frivolity. Hope Etsy will do this again! Thanks to Rose St Market for hosting and nice to see some of the makers from my series Handmade in Melbourne at the market too! Great night Etsy!

Shakira is a wonderful human being, inspiring, worldly, passionate about her printing and creating such playful designs you can’t help but enjoy them. Here is a recent set of portraits I did with Shakira at her studio in Melbourne.

A recent photoshoot with the lovely Jason from Chalk + Trees a new venture making custom sized Australian timber mirrors, blackboards and frames. Chalk + Trees are in the process of launching a new website but you can find some of their beautiful work on their instagram feed chalkandtrees. I’m loving their experimental pieces and creativity with wood and other mediums to create unique pieces, can’t wait to see more of Chalk + Trees in the future.
