Cover - Ellements MagazineGreat news for me on a personal and professional note came today... I recently submitted an editorial entitled Earth Angel to Ellements Magazine.  I was quickly informed by the editor that the editorial/fashion story was going to be picked up for the January 2013 issue of the magazine. Yay!

Today, the magazine was released. I'm thrilled and over the moon to announce that I have not only gotten an editorial IN the magazine, but I also got my very first COVER with this editorial. Cue the happy dance ;)

Much thanks goes out to my team of amazing women: MUA/Hair: Victoria Ho - see... I told you we needed more colour ;) Wardrobe styling: Megan Tiffany Nash - great clothing and accessory pulls as usual Model: Ashleigh Cameron - NUMA Models - stunning girl, can't wait to work with you again sweets!

I couldn't have done this airy, ethereal and angelic shoot without you girls. Much love and hugs to all of you!

This cover is validation of all the hard work I do, in my more often than not, unpaid free time. I often edit into the wee hours of the morning, immersing myself in hours of selecting and editing to perfection the already beautiful women I shoot. It is enormously satisfying, both creatively and personally, to have my work and time validated with a cover image on a beautifully designed, independent fashion magazine. Thank you Kaneo Biggs for the opportunity.

** On a personal note: I couldn't do what I do without the love and support of my patient husband, my mom (my biggest fan), my family and my friends. I love you all for your constant, unwavering encouragement and support of what sometimes seems to be a pipe dream... Thank you, thank you, thank you!

What a fabulous start to 2013 =)
