Blue Mountains Portrait Photographer: 'Feather Girl'

... I love how photography allows me to express myself on a creative level... the fashion, vintage things,  the Victorian/Edwardian era oh so beautiful and elegant !!
but also ... shoes  .... burlesque and of course...  feathers !!
So for my photo-session below, I really wanted to make a bold statement with bright colours, bright make-up and ... lots and lots of feathers !
Was thrilled with the result ! what do you think ?

Make-up/concept:  Myself

Thank you for your visit and for taking time to give me your opinion/comment on my work,

Have a fantastic week !

Blue Mountains Fashion Photographer: 'Hat & pointe'

My friend came for a visit last month and as for each rare visit she does,
we always try to fit in a photo session. 
For each person, I always aim to bring out their personality, a style that would suit and of course... a little bit of my ideas and inspiration, so this is my  vision of it:  Simple with basic colours, elegance ... and I threw a hat and some pointes (she is a dancer ... and why not a cigarette (since she smokes :)

We had so much fun doing this !
What do you think ?

Blue Mountains Portrait Photographer: 'Fashion in the Blue mountains'

Cocktail Couture at Blackheath with the Darnell Collection:

Our friend Charlotte Smith, curator of the Darnell Collection, (click HERE for full details and Charlotte's story) has organised a fashion parade as a fundraiser for Blackheath Public school late last year.  Never have we seen in Blackheath, so  many beautiful models parading with her unique collection of vintage clothing and accessories for the occasion.   The event was very successful in raising some much needed money for the school.

The community hall  got literally transformed into a very nice arena for this exciting event ... 
here are some of my pics...

A very successful event with fashion in mind, some wine on arrival,  cakes and nibbles, local businesses donated items for the raffles  to help make this fundraiser a success: 'Dreaming of Dior', 'Dreaming of Chanel' books from Charlotte's Darnell collection,   'Minxy vintage' books  from best-selling author and vintage lover: Kelly Doust, CDs from local jazz singer Penelope Sai,  all made a very pleasant evening had by all !

Looking forward to more of those  events in the Blue mountains !

Have a fantastic week !
