There are times in your life when you seem to be persuing things left right and centre - then there are times in your life when all your learning and interests come together in some unique way, something you are totally unprepared for. Planning your life to a tee doesn't always allow for the natural flow of things to come forth, but isn't it nice when you finally realise that all has not been in vain. This revelation is a very new experience for me.
Yesterday I had the privileged of making over, styling and photographing this lovely mother and daughter. We had a really great time hamming it up and and I think that one day the daughter may just "get" why her mother made her do this (and that she didn't look like a Grandma).
My first training was as a hairdresser and beauty therapist. I used this trade to support myself through uni. Through Uni I studied the arts, through TAFE I studied graphic design, through personal interest I hoard beautiful retro props... see where I am going here? Some how, just somehow I have managed to pull all these elements together to be able to offer people this experience. I adore the beautiful messages and comments I receive from people and I feel I am truly one of the lucky ones to be able to complete the whole process myself using all of my past learning and personal interests. I am thankful that people are taking an interest and I am thankful I am having fun doing it.
