World’s Greatest Shave


Life is such an amazing thing… sometimes caught up doing our own little thing, it is easy to forget how hard and fleeting life can be. So today being valentines day, I thought I would share a little love story as it were… Well to me, sacrificing your hair to create awareness, raise money and give moral support to those struggling is a pretty awesome love story I think!

Over the weekend we were blessed with the opportunity to photograph an old friend (well a new friend for Adam) to celebrate the gift of her daddy’s curls before she takes the plunge next month to shave her head (to the scalp – eip!) as part of the “Worlds Greatest Shave” to help raise money for the Leukaemia foundation.

Chelsea’s Dad passed away from cancer at the young age of 29… Leaving her mother a widow to two small boys with a baby girl (Chelsea) due to be born. Two weeks after his passing, this incredible young woman came into the world.

When I heard that Chelsea was “shaving for a cure” I was really touched, we chatted about it, and she mentioned her main motivation for doing the Worlds Greatest Shave was the struggles with ill health and cancer she has witnessed some of her dear friends going through, as well as her family’s history and a bit of inspiration from a friend shaving last year.

So, after a crazy suggestion, a couple of quick chats, and a postponed client shoot- Chelsea jumped a flight to come to Brisbane to be photographed. We hope you feel inspired by this beautiful young woman too! Finding a cure isn’t cheap, so (pretty please!) help Chelsea reach her donation goal. Even $5 will help! Smile 

You can sponsor Chelsea’s shave here: 

We are also excited to share this beautiful little film we created to help Chelsea raise money for “The World’s Greatest Shave”!

Enjoy! (That hair!!!)

The Lane, Flowergirls

Way back towards the beginning of the year, we were commissioned by The Lane to shoot a vintage tea party- made for the littlest members of the bridal party. The idea was to showcase to The Lane brides, some of the gorgeous children’s dress designers we have at our fingertips here in Australia, while at the same time inspiring sweet tables for your little ones to dine at.

We absolutely adore children at weddings! Their cute, funny and unpredictable ways are guaranteed to keep your guest entertained. Accommodating children at your wedding can be fun, especially if you are planning an outdoor reception… let them run barefoot and free, making new friends and eating lots of cake!
