Independent Woman - Spring Monochrome Fashion Photography - Southampton


As it's Women's History Month and was International Woman's Day on Monday, it was only fitting to post this gorgeous shoot 'Independent Woman'. I was even listening to Destiny's Child whilst editing these pictures to get my sass on!

Love this throwback shoot from April 2014 for a Spring monochrome trend inspired shoot taken in Southampton Solent University studios on my photography degree. I worked with such a talented team, it was certainly a fun and creative shoot. Kristina Guaggenti provided her wonderful hair & make up artistry and helped style the shoot and Yaz Wall was a fabulous getting into character and showing her fierce fashion looks in these outfits. Doesn't she look amazing!?

One of my favourite trends is monochrome and every spring season there's usually some striking black and white outfit that I adore. I'm loving the monochrome pieces in Spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection by Calvin Klein, Salvatore Ferragamo, Michael Kors and Givenchy (and also Stella McCartney for their colours & pleats and Alexander McQueen for their feminine tailored English pieces).

The garments were sourced from high street shops from the likes of Asos, River Island, New Look, Zara, Miss Selfridge and H&M (pretty much all my fave shops!) with a helping hand from Kristina on Zara pieces. Kristina also hand crafted the embellished eyebrows (see below) which is amazing. Also this was Yaz's first fashion shoot in the studio and she totally rocked it. She's such a natural in front of the camera. I'll have to get some more wonderful portraits of her!

Thank you Kristina & Yaz :) This post goes to celebrating all those wonderful women out there and being confident in what they do. Also a power suit does wonders to get that fierce and 'independent woman' look.

Happy Mother's Day! - Somerset Lifestyle Photography




It was a happy coincidence that my mother and I met up for Mother's Day weekend this year and I'm so glad we spent some quality mother and daughter time in the Somerset Countryside. I treated my lovely mother to a 2 night weekend away at Lord Poulett Arms in Hinton St George and it's so gorgeous here. The locals are so friendly and the Inn is beautifully decorated, it's been a splendid weekend so far and we've still got Mother's Day lunch to go!

Yesterday we decided to visit the magnificent National Trust Montacute House and it was lovely morning seeing all the Tudor portraits and rooms. Here's a little snap from the day.   :)

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Mothers Day with their families in the UK!
