vintage flowers | photoshoot

She walks in beauty, like the night. Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies. One shade the more, one ray the less, had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress, Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express, How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow, So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow, But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent!
- Lord Byron

regent’s park | london

On Friday Davina and I met up with Christine, a fellow artist and new friend, so that we could adventure around the city and take photos. We went to Regent’s Park, which Davina and I had gone by previously but didn’t really go in to explore. It was so magical; filled with flower gardens, archways, people scattered everywhere picnicking, sunbathing, and enjoying one another’s company. We all had such a lovely day filled with instant bonding, laughter, delicious food, and discussing our love for offensive humour. It’s such an amazing feeling discovering fellow creatives that you just immediately share a connection with.

ice queen | new lightroom preset

A couple of weeks ago Mia and I had a wintry photoshoot, which I am super excited about because it was my first “real” shoot that I’ve had since working my way off of crutches. I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to be able to go adventuring again. (P.S. I’ve officially been off crutches for about 5 weeks now!).
I’ve also been really obsessed with making new custom Lightroom presets for my shop as of late, and the one that I made while editing this set is by far my most favorite one yet. I have been using it on *everything*. It is called “Ice Queen”, and you can find it here in my Etsy shop ♥. Below is a before and after; the before is SOOC (aside from skin retouching), the after has “Ice Queen” applied, and that is all!
The rest of the images in this post were all edited solely with “Ice Queen” as well :-)
