Anytime that I get the a chance to be creative, think big and push myself and my skills to the limit my soul literally soars!
Let’s rewind to October last year, remember that week of shocking, stormy, once in a lifetime weather? Yep! I sure do! That’s because that’s when the UNEARTHED photo shoot was scheduled to take place. Unfortunately, it had to be cancelled, then rescheduled! Months of hard work, co-ordination and preparation completely out the window. Fast forward a couple of weeks and a few more challenges in between for good measure and we were presented with another rainy, albeit slightly better day. What to do? Get on with it is what…get on and do our best despite the odds.
I’m proud to say that our collective best got us into the fabulous and coveted WHITE magazine blog and most importantly formed a bond between like-minded creatives that won’t be forgotten anytime soon.

On my blog I wanted to share not only the standout images from the shoot but also the little snippets in between, the preparations, the vendor’s smiles doing what they love, the crew, the uniforms we had made! – all the dedicated behind the scenes moments. This is my tribute and personal thanks to the entire creative collective involved in UNEARTHED. In particular, I want to take a moment to acknowledge my fave business partner, supporter and insanely talented friend – Chelsea from Barossa Styling + Events. Together we dreamed this shoot up, together we worked our hearts out for months and together we made it all happen!

An epic shoot needs an smashing uniform – yes it does!
The wildly talented Sarah Craker glamming up our model Olivia in the wee hours of the morning…can’t thank her enough!
Super early morning floral preparations with Bethany from VIVA. You worked incredibly hard putting together a jaw dropping floral installation on the stairs, the bouquet dreams are made of, a boutonniere and table centrepieces.
Behind the scenes – styling the Bridal table. Protecting the settings from the onset of rain!
Taking care of the little details…
Chels ‘borrowing’ a few props from the Anlaby veggie patch!
The gorgeous Philippa with her little darling pony ‘Music’…we can’t thank her enough for getting him photo shoot ready and handling him on set – so grateful!
It’s a team effort to get everything just right!
Sarah made herself available all day for touch ups to hair and makeup and was just a fantastic help in so many ways.
My amazing little crew member loving on ‘music’ once his part in the shoot was done!
