I think this is one of the first portraits I was ever absolutely proud of. I'd shot a shit tonne of them by this point but there was always something that I could have done better. In this photo I can't think of a thing that I could have done better and now it sits on the mantelpiece in the studio.


Funnily it wasn't even my photo shoot, it was actually another photographer's at the other end of the studio and the girls quickly jumped in front of me before going down. Thanks for doing that Kate. I don't think you know how much I love this photo.

    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
