On a super warm Summers day and after battling with an absurd amount of traffic Russian beauty Ksenia Moore and I banged out this quick set while roaming around LA
A super laid back beauty i wanted to capture the lowkey side of this gorgeous lady. We were excited to find a bunch of sunflowers but were quickly kicked out of the lot (apparently the Jew garden is jews only?!) but whatever.... check it out
Outfit from Peyote Collect.
Mady is a fellow Australian and someone iv been in internet contact with for a long time so when we discovered we were in the same area in LA it would have been improper to not do a shoot! With her super sexy curves and I dont give a fuck attitude she oozes a sensual personality. Here's a little impromptu set we shot wandering around with a few cans of Arizona and nothing better to do on a blazing day.
Bra: Honey Birdette
Model: Mady Jade @madyyjadee
I wanted to shoot my favourite face in Peyote Labels again before I left Australia so I contacted Lisa to meet me in Kings Cross on my way to the airport. My boyfriend somehow convinced me I need a backpacking bag in my life so I could wander in exotic places on my trip so here I was with a bag in tow that is almost larger then me on my back and my camera in my hands, Lisa is looking at me like iv lost my mind by the time I meet her at the gate.
The servo was only a five minute stroll up the road but honestly it felt like decades, the more we walked the more it dawned on me how much of a major fuck up I had made investing into my own strength with this giant fucking turtles shell attached to me and not just rolling my bag along the ground like any normal sane person. That was two months ago now, dont think my mindset has changed at all about the situation - everytime I carry it I die.......
I'm sitting on a comfy crisp white bed that I regret not shooting on before millions of peices of ash slowly collected and marked the White doona from the numerous joints smoked cosied up from the cold. The heater is broken and doesn't turn off, it's a perfect temperature between that and the 2 Windows opening up onto the private balcony. In the mornings you hear squirrels scuttle along the collecting whatever little peices of food have been left behind from the night befores shenanigans. The Airbnb I am staying in is situated perfectly in Shoreditch, London with tesco right across the road and the tube only about 4 blocks up the road. Iv begun to adjust to the cold now, although I'm sure my few months in Melbourne last year I can thank for that.
I left Australia back in December and my life has been such a happy little spontaneous mess I haven't kept myself organised at all, reached any goals or even posted a single thing on the blog. Oh well, little bit of a late start on the new year, new me I guess. Fuck it...
After cutting my trip short and coming back to Australia last July I ended up staying a long time so when Alexis asked me to come back with him to Nice for Christmas I made the crazy decision to sell everything I could again and set out on my original plan of being a full time wanderer again. It was always the intention of course - I iust never expected it to be with someone I would fall stupidly in love with and so soon, but life has a weird way of delivering the very best when you least expect it.
So the apartment is gone, my stuff is gone and I'm now in London.
The music here sucks, the people are awesome, the party so-so. I guess not everything can be perfect but as I look accross the room at the guy I felt so confident to just drop everything and leave with time and time again on all these crazy adventures I don't think Iv ever experienced anything that feels as close to perfect as this....
No idea where to next, no idea what will even happen tomorrow. In a perfect world.
(These shots were very cheekily taken by my amazing friend Christopher while he so kindly allowed us to stay in his home when we first arrived in London. A gorgeous little 2 bedroom in Kings Cross with the most magical little patio (although we won't mention the unfortunate events that happened there during our stay 😂) Thank you Christopher for everything like delivery cheese to us at 9:30pm like if we had more people like you in the world I'm confident we would probably have less conflict on this planet)
