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!


Weekend Photographers Retreat

At the end of July I arranged a weekend away with a group of fellow photographers staying at The Mountain View Retreat.

It was the chance to try new things, make mistakes and understand more clearly what our clients feel when they are in front of our camera as we took turns being models as well.

In the next week or 2 I will share images of myself and my experience of being in front of the camera.

Many thanks to my wonderful team There She Glows and Pull My Hair – HAIR Design for helping the weekend run so smoothly 

Here are my images from the weekend.

Trash the Dress Therapy {Yamba}

Sometimes life decides to throw you a curve ball and you can let it knock you out or you can move aside and take a new path.
Miss S took the new path,
and to celebrate and free herself, she booked a Trash the Dress session.
My makeover team and I met her at the beach and started the experience.
Hair styled, make up done and dress on we then headed down the beach to get dirty!
We made mud, I brought a tub of ash, grease paint and last of all added some glitter to the mix.
It was wet, dirty and therapeutic.
Exactly what she wanted.

” The girls made me feel so comfortable. The whole session made me feel amazing and when I saw my images I was blown away.
Carley had captured exactly what I had in my head and it helped me feel absolutely amazing and set me free!”
