A throwback to one of my favourite shoots with one of my favourite people - @lurological
Lu has helped me so much over the years with all aspects of modelling, from posing, lighting, angles, makeup, hair and styling.
Not only did she take this gorgeous photo, she also made the dress out of sheets of tissue paper.
She's so creative and inspiring.... Did I mention she's one of my best friends in the world?

I'm no longer replying to messages on social media unless they're work related.
I have over 50,000 photos to edit and like most freelancers have been thrown in at the deep end covering two years worth of bookings in one. In the last 3-4 months I haven't met up with a single friend. The only time I've been out if it's not to work is to dental appointments, to get my Covid jabs, shop runs and I've took my niece out three times.
Sometimes it's easy to see people posting on social media or see that 'online' symbol and to assume they're available but what you don't see is:
☑️ Me on a 5-15 minute break (If I get one) sat in a room on my own eating as fast as possible scrolling down my feed sharing a funny meme before being called in to take pictures of the cutting of the cake before several more hours of shooting and a 2-4 hour trip home after a 12-19 hour day to see '???' because I opened up a message during that 5-15 minutes.
☑️ Sharing a funny meme at 11pm waiting for Photoshop to stop crashing whilst having a 24 hour turn around deadline to have pictures edited and sent by 9am for a press release which= no time to sleep let alone chat for leisure.
☑️ Sharing a post or story whilst waiting for a gallery to export in-between replying to never ending emails, getting ready to edit a second gallery, waiting for a call to discuss a commercial project, answering new enquiries, Googling venues to figure out what kit I should bring, Google Mapping locations to see how I can get there and the list goes on during a rare day at home.
☑️ Whatsapp saying online when the reality is that I'm stood outside a brides house sending a message to let them know I've arrived and won't be able to touch my phone until another 4-6 hours if I get a little break because it looks unprofessional.
☑️ Posts which are sometimes scheduled weeks in advance.
Please bare with me! ♥️ It won't be forever although after this awful year and being entitled to ZERO business support my only priority right now is work and finishing galleries. I want to have everything all finished ready for an easy October/November 🍂
