Kellie & Ricky

Last  year I had the pleasure of being asked to do the wedding hair in March for one of my favourite Models Kellie.

‘Yes’ was my answer naturally.

Kellie has always been so great to work with for any photo shoot.

She’s wonderfully tall and lean and beautiful, not to mention the fact that she’s so lovely.

You will see a few photos of her throughout my galleries.

Her wedding photos are awesome.

She used Alice Photography, Samantha Buhl for make up and Susi Liddington was her stylist for the reception at Wharepuke.

I miss having you around Kellie, but great that you and Ricky are on your new adventure together…enjoy.

Lorna Evans photographic workshop 2014

I’ve had the joy of being able to attend the Lorna Evans Education Photographic Workshop 2014.

Wow so cool to be part of this workshop. It was held in Melbourne Australia August 30-September 2.

I was one of 16 Hairdressers and the only from New Zealand.

We were put into pairs and each pair had a professional model to work with for the shoot. Something I don’t normally have, so very exciting.

Sarah Penno and myself created the first image…love it

Below is the whole group and much credit to all involved. Please I joy what we created. Lxx

The rain, the rain for Stacey & Brett…

Oh my did it rain or what?

This Watiangi weekend in New Zealand totally tipped it down.

Not what we were wanting for this lovely bride.

But Stacey kept it together, with a change in plans for the ceremony  location we kept on rolling.

Stacey’s theme was vintage and very elegant.

Her gown was so beautiful, with an exquisite veil to top it off.

I have to say I loved her completed look.

Thanks for the lovely photos, Alice Photography,

Make up Suzy Poole of Body Divine,

Location, The Duke of Marlborough, Russell. These guys rock!!

Flowers Wendy Putt of Putts Green,

Despite the weather I loved this wedding.

Thanks ladies.

Photo shoot time

Yip it’s that time….

Time to get some of the images building up in my head out and onto film.

The first was a short course/photoshoot work shop in Auckland, through work.

Lots of fun seeing what others do and then putting it into practice.

I had a gorgeous model, see what you think. All my images are unedited, so it’s check out mine.

The second we did last weekend again through work.

I based mine on Schwarzkopf  Essential Looks.

Again these are my phone photos.

Enjoy, Lxx


Emily you gorgeous thing

Emily Contacted me all the way from Burma.

Not the easiest of communications but we got there in the end.

She was getting married in Russell NZ over the summer and I was to do her and her bridesmaids hair. Plus a few others(cutest little flower girls).

These ladies were great fun, Suzy Poole(make up fun) & I had the best day. We were joined later by Jess Burges & second camera Terri Robinson for Exposurenz photography. Love the results, love the day & the gorgeousness.

enjoy, Lxx
