House of Em.



My good friend Maggie made the choker. She runs under the brand House of Em. Her stuff is really cool. She makes Tulle dresses, chokers and fascinators and I like them all. Primarily she is a photographer but maybe she just does everything. Pipar who is the model here I had met in Wanganui with the Embrace Model Management crew. I had jammed with them a few months earlier. She's also signed with N Management. She's got all those things you need, the right height, the right look and her runway walk is boss. I think she has a huge future.

    I always smile when I think about Piimio. Her wild, rebellious, lively, passionate self. She's honest. I enjoy knowing where I stand with her and she will never hide how she is feeling, she will just be. Like in this photo. I can hear her talking, and every sentence starts with "Oi". Like "Oi Shontz, look at this. Mum gave us some fejoas!"She's got a husky voice that sounds brilliant when she sings Valerie. Piimio is an actress. One of the many that I know but with her, I do believe she will go far. She's got the drive to make it and I've seen her acting. It's real. I still have a friendship bracelet on that she gave me in Rarotonga over a year ago. It was to say thank you, I guess for being me. I've never taken it off. I'd be more than happy to tell everyone about the time I met her and the story about the hot chocolate. But, I can feel her rolling her eyes already. hahaha. She will probably remind me of when she kicked me in the head and broke my glasses:) Love you Piims. Model - Piimio Mei

    Mathilde is the french girl I met in a cafe. I remember she asked if I was a professional and I said "No". I like being the underdog and to be honest I don't make my primary living off photography. I could if I shot weddings and family portraits but fuck that. I would get so bored. I guess that's how I know I'm a fashion photographer because I do get a kick out of it. I love the color of her sweater and her eyes. The movement in her hair.

    I didn't get to know Saraya. She was very quiet. I think for a moment she opened up enough for me to snap this pic before we went our own ways again. Thank you for that. Model - Saraya Mepham MUA - Ania Scott Butterflies - House of Em
