Boho Organic Styled Bridal Inspiration

May 19th, 2015

On a wet, icy day back in January, I teamed up with photographer Anouschka Rokebrand to style a boho bridal session where organic textures, a natural palette and classic, historical elements served as my inspiration. Thrilled as always to see my work featured, and this beauty made it onto the pages of the very beautiful Magnolia Rouge.

You might remember this orchard shoot we collaborated on together last fall? Well the moment we clapped eyes on our gorgeous model Lisa, we knew she’d be a lovely centrepiece to a bohemian inspired session that Anouschka had been dying to capture, and so this was born; a beautiful collection of images captured both digitally and on film.

Inside Scoop: Eclectic by the Sea

May 7th, 2015

A while back I teamed up with photographer Jansje Klazinga to shoot a fabulous house by the beach belonging to a friend of mine. The house is so fun and striking with loads of vintage and repurposed elements, lovely architecture and of course, those vibrant fire-engine red floors. I had great fun styling this family home and working alongside Jansje for the day, and with the results featured in the Dutch magazine Flair, I thought it high time I took you through this fun home too and shared some of my favourite images from the feature.

My good friend Sanne, the owner of this fun home, is an industrial designer with a penchant for the colour red. Her partner Tim, a successful architect, is a risk-taker. So it’s no surprise the couple chose to paint their brand new oak floors fire engine red. A bold move for sure, but isn’t it fun? Years ago, when I first started taking pictures of interiors I interviewed them about their home and I’d like to share their story with you. Get the full scoop

Studio Makeover: Before & After!

May 4th, 2015

So guys do you wanna take a peek inside my studio space? I walked you through the before’s and during’s and have promised you a tour for ages. I know, I’ve made you what for this one. It’s been so busy behind the scenes here and some things just take a little longer than others. I’ve spent many a late evening compiling this baby for you – sorry for making you wait so long but today I am excited to show you the full tour of my studio! The good the bad, and the ugly. I know you enjoyed peeking into my bedroom a few months ago, so I hope you enjoy today’s space just as much. Enjoy!

As I mentioned in my last post, this is the place all my blogging happens, any product styling and photography I’m working on and also workshops have started taking place in here too. It’s where I come to be inspired, and it’s such an incredibly light space up here thanks to a four meter wide window and skylight that being inspired isn’t all that hard up here. Get the full scoop
