Today I've taken the time to reflect on 2013.. It has been a good year and I'm excited for what 2014 has in store for me.
This past year I have... *Turned 23 years old
*Moved out of my flat and in with my boyfriend (and his 2 cats = lots more cat photos this year!)
*Been published in BeauNu Magazine, #photography Magazine, Wove Magazine and ZEUM Magazine
*Had a photograph exhibited in the Royal Photographic Society's 156th International Print Exhibition and was part of Yelena Buck's 'Diamonds from Dust' exhibition
*Tested with models from Leni's, Sapphires, Next, Sandra Reynolds and Profile
*Rekindled my love for analogue photography and started printing my own photos in the darkroom again
*Been given a permanent contract at the college where I teach
*Was one of the final 10 photographers shortlisted for the Clothes Show Live's Young Fashion Photographer of the Year Award 2013
A big thank you to everyone that has been a part of any of these, I wouldn't have been able to do it with out you all & I look forward to future collaborations in 2014!

These behind the scenes photographs are from a shoot I done in October in a beautiful London cemetery. The editorial is due to be published in DeVour Magazine next week so I thought I'd share these as a sneak preview. Thank you to my brilliant team: the beautiful Paloma @ Profile Models, Adele Sanderson doing hair and make up, Christianne and her assistant Jay styling and Nicola Naylor who assisted me and took these great photographs.

I hope everyone had a brilliant Christmas! I'm feeling incredibly spoilt after being treated to some amazing gifts. I'm lucky in that I come from a big family so always have a lot of people around me at this time of year. I also made my first Christmas cake and have proceeded to eat far too much of it!

These are photographs from a test with Isis at the beginning of Autumn. A new face at Leni's, I wanted to work with her after seeing her face in a package for another shoot. I collaborated with Adele doing hair and make up and the dresses in a few of the photos are made by Louise Player.
My little home studio is the perfect place to shoot natural light images like these, since it's been getting darker earlier I've been missing that light...

I apologise for the poor quality photographs, but I wanted to show a glimpse of my photo being displayed at the Clothes Show Live. Recently I was shortlisted as one of the ten finalists for their 'Young Fashion Photographer Of The Year' award and was invited to attend the Creative Awards at the show this week. I didn't win but it was a great experience and interesting to see my photograph being displayed in a different way than on a wall or a screen!

Photographs from a shoot I done at the end of the summer, working with Sharna-Marie, Amanda @ Leni's, Stephanie @ Nevs & Adele.
The day was a lot colder than it looks in the photos! They were a lovely team to work with and as I hadn't shot on location like this for a while, it was a great refresher for me. Behind the scenes can be seen on my previous post here.

I'm excited to announce that I have been shortlisted for the 'Young Fashion Photographer Of The Year' awards by Clothes Show Live!
There are 10 photographers shortlisted and the awards ceremony is on 10th December, where we attend the Clothes Show and they reveal the winner. I'm excited/nervous about going, fingers crossed for good news.
