Clarence Valley Small Business Collaboration 2017

Owning a small business, run from home can be lonely so I love chances to network with fellow small business owners.
An excuse to get out of my pyjamas and have a grown up chat 

Last year I had the pleasure of collaborating with a few local businesses to showcase what we offer within our business.

We chose everyday ladies to be our models and together we had fun coming up with new ideas and testing out ideas we have had for a while.

Businesses involved were:
Dresses Bliss Bridal & After 5
Hair All About Hair Yamba
Make Up There She Glows
Floral Arrangements Wildflower Wanderings

All lovely ladies that run these business will be more than happy to chat with you about your needs and answer any questions you may have so be sure to say hi!

My Scar Creation

The uncertainty was almost overwhelming.
I had thought about this idea for so long, the fact that it was in the process of being created was hard to fathom.
My model was amazing. Having her trust in me to create something womderful from a part of her that she avoids was both inspiring and hard.
I transform woman with my work. They come in nervous and scared and slowly I coax them into reveally themselves and I capture this.
This new creation while still transforming my client it wasn’t the traditional ‘beautiful’ that my main body of work entails.
This has confused and excited me at the same time.
I have the RAW images and now it is time to put them together.
Will it look like I have always imagined?
I guess time will tell……

The Power of Print

During my trip to The Portrait Masters in America I had the opportunity to have 1 of my images printed for me.
Yeah, yeah you’re probably thinking, so what you have images printed all the time…. True, but this time I got to actually see my image be printed.
After years of doing what I do I have never actually got to see any of my work print in front of me.
I waited in line for an hour waiting for my image. Each print that came out, I held my breathe for the first few minutes to see if it was mine. 
As my image started to appear in front of me I was overwhelmed with emotion.
Something I captured and created was coming to life in front of me.
Nothing beats having something physical to hold in your hands. And this is why I offer my client beautiful pieces of art created from their images.
Something you can look at every day and remember that even though today might be a ‘PJ all day just to survive day’ you are still fricken amazing! 😍
