Yesterday was a big (but extremely rewarding) day! A few weeks ago MAEVE an online magazine put the call out for stylists to design a Christmas table setting for their upcoming issue in which I of course grabbed the opportunity and put my hand up. I knew immediately what I wanted to do – a take on the Aussie Christmas done in a simple modern tone – and first thing was first I set out to get a pinterest inspiration board set up here . I have to admit, I knew even before I had taken the gig who I wanted the photographer to be on this one. These images needed to be crisp and full of light, so Dan from Eon Images who I worked on the Entwined shoot with was perfect for this.
The location we chose was a spot along the Port river in Port Adelaide which has a great deck and views of along the river. And although the perfect scene was set with a magnificent summer day, the heat and sun did become a hindrance at times. There was a delay in the set up due to the heat and we had to shoot in between the sun coming out of the clouds in order not to have harsh shadows. Despite this, it all turned out perfectly and was quite a relaxing shoot. I think I may have even gotten a slight tan!
Thank you to everyone involved, it was a great day and I cannot wait for it to be published in MAEVE magazine and see all the photos!
