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 β™₯. 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 :-)

vampire kisses | photoshoot

In mid-October my beautiful sister Davina and I had a mini-shoot in my back yard, while the Fall foliage was still in full effect. This was shortly after I had broken my leg, so it felt really wonderful to get outside and take some photos after being cooped up in the house for 2-3 weeks. I love that Davina is becoming more confident as the days go by, and growing in to herself. I’m so proud of her =).
While we were outside taking photos, the adorable little kitty that lives next door came to visit us and hang out for a bit. Every time I’m outside she always runs over, she is the sweetest thing ever.
