Settler and Sons Twilight Dinner

20 Mar 2018

When I arrived at the Settler and Sons dinner, it was at the end of golden hour. I’d driven towards Nowhere Creek as the final light from the sun touched everything it could reach. Thick, lazy light, heavy like honey, oozed over the golden hills. My camera was heavy in my lap and I so wanted to stop and capture every view in every direction just to remember the moment. But, I was late, I couldn’t stop, so I glanced at the golden hills with their purple shadows, the windows of my car lowered, hoping the memory would be tattooed on my heart.

Juliette Has a Gun Masterclass

16 Mar 2018

Whenever I talk to people about the Perfume Masterclasses at Sweet Fern, they have often never thought about what is actually entailed in one. So after I have one yet another Perfume Masterclass visit, I wanted to share the proceedings with you, so can learn more about the mystery of them.

Liana of @findingfemme roller skates in Geelong for Juliette Has a Gun

Last year I fell in love with the incredible experience of a Perfume Masterclass at Sweet Fern in Ballarat. At the end of my first masterclass, I walked away with a bottle of Juliette Has a Gun’s black bottled fragrance ‘Lady Vengeance’. It was my first proper perfume purchase and one that began a love affair. You may recall me talking about it in this blog post shoot I did which featured the bottle.

Ballarat Beat 2018

Another year, another Ballarat Beat. This year I had the pleasure of being one of the judges in the best-dressed competition. Unfortunately, due to an incredibly bad haircut, I ended up wearing a wig, so plenty of people didn’t recognise me. I also didn’t have a photographer so I only have a couple of photos of that outfit on my phone. Here are the few shots I have from this year's event. You can check out previous years here and here.

Skate Baby

4 Feb 2018

A while ago, I made a vow to try my best to ‘do something’ in my blog shoots after a friend’s young daughter got excited thinking I was a train driver (read it here). I realised how big an influence my posts could be on so many people that I was inspired to be active and engaged in my shoots in the hope that in some little way, other people could see how they can engage with the world around them. So, given that I’ve had these skates for a few years it’s surprising I’ve not done a blog shoot in them before.
