With Winter upon us it is even more of an excuse to stay rugged up indoors underneath our cosy, warm blankets, yet with the crisp, cold air and the warm sunshine outside my window I just had to get out of the house and into nature . The Aussie bush and another perfect Sydney day set the scene to get some beautiful shots of these two beautiful people; Mikaela and Reina.

These are the ultimate simple and casual looks that continue to be beautiful and stylish. The classic colours – red, white, blue and classic prints – polka dots, stripes and checks never seem to go out of fashion. I believe almost anyone can rock the classic polka dot dress or a pair of cute striped shorts no matter what body type.
This trend can be transformed into anything! From sophisticated to casual, from catwalk to the high street. Everyone seems to want a piece of the classic look that is almost always in the stores.

8. All About Eve
For this shoot I really wanted to create four looks that incorporated the vintage/retro style while still keeping it on trend. I mixed certain pieces with items that can be found in your wardrobe or in the shops at the moment. The one thing that made this shoot work was the beautiful setting of Sydney’s harbour along with the backdrop of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. I could shoot at this location again and again and NEVER get bored. It just was the perfect location to launch EMPIRE EVE. It truly reflected my own style and my love of Sydney as a city. Everything just came together perfectly on the day and overall the look was what I wanted from the beginning so……. hope you all enjoy the photos!
