Sharing with you snaps by Tom Lau (edited by yours truly). We were playing with lighting on a photoshoot where I was styling and ended up with some fabulous images I thought worth working on. While I have my photographs taken by the boyfriend all the time for the blog, it is always fun working with professionals. Tom allowed me to channel the Old Hollywood this time, but I hope I’ll get to do more studio shots soon - it was so much fun!

If you are a Sydney-based photographer and are interested to do a shoot or two, let me know! I wanna do as much as I can before I leave for UK next year :)
