The Rainbow Serpent Sparkle Gang Photoshoot of 2018 took my breath away. It truly did, and here's why...
For something that started last year as a special way to capture memories and moments of one-off commissions for individual clients, I was truly humbled by the turn out last weekend. Its grown from the humble 10 people last year, to over 35+ this year ... with there being a representation of both old and new clients and friends alike.
You see, the joy of my work is that so many people end up with outfits unique to just them. We work together to establish the fabrics, the colours, the design, shape, and patterns. Each person leaving my studio with something special which is perfect just for them. Sometimes I manage to take pictures of garments on a mannequin before it's whisked away, others a quick snap on the new owner... but there is nothing more special than seeing them sparkling away in the sunlight with all the accessories, sometimes makeup, footwear, with the colourful paddock as the backdrop... it creates art, that's for sure!
I know some clients would hate to be in front of the camera... but what I'm trying to do is to create an archive of treasures I've made, to have something to look back through as a memory time capsule - it's incredibly special to see them all in action and to celebrate each person's individuality together on the paddock!
The hugest thanks, love, and gratitude to all that came along, I'm not going to hold back in admitting that I got big tears in my eyes as I crossed the hill and saw you all there with Nabeel (our photographer) ... here's to an even more epically sparkly 2018 together,
