bright eyes











I took these images in Perth of my (almost) sister Ashlin and her best friend Ella. I first saw Ella 3 years ago while picking Ashlin up from school. I asked Ashlin if she could become her friend so I could photograph her and Ashlin said “maybe…” in that shy way she does. I remember she was holding my hand and we were so proud to have each other.

The second time I saw Ella was when I went to watch Ashlin in her ballet recital. Ella was like a star exploding in the dark theatre.

The next day we were eating ice cream together at the beach, running in shallow water and taking pictures.

    I absolutely love the image with the hair all tangled up in the bush, it’s such an amazing shot. You have such a beautiful way of capturing people. You’re such an amazing person, you just connect with people so well. You are a physical manifestation of what is right with humanity <3

Somewhere along the way this blog stopped being primarily about my fashion photography work and began focusing on our lives. It became a diary, or moreso a chronicle of our adventures. I can’t think of any better way to affect people than by being personal and real. But lately my blog doesn’t feel personal or real enough to me. It should have all the color and chaos of a real diary, but it feels like I’m following a formula.

I am guarded with my words, because I’ve suffered for being open and honest. I talk mostly of things I find beautiful, because this is what I thought people wanted to hear. I stick to topics I think my followers will enjoy. In other words, I’m not writing for myself and that is where the warmth trickles out little by little.

So here’s my new year resolution. I am going to write this blog from the deepest, bloodiest part of my heart and if you don’t like it, that’s okay. The internet is a big place, with many other voices telling stories you might like to listen to instead.

Thank you for spending time in my world.

    I’ve been a fan of yours ever since the days when you photographed Elise in your Grandmother’s house and used $50 hardware lamps. In a sense, I’ve watched you grow up, and we’re the same age incidentally. You inspired me to start writing again, and although I can only dream of having your talent – you drive me. I adore you so much. (You’re also the same person who got me into photography and capturing life through a lens.) Thank you. Thank you so much – for I am grateful for you sharing your talents.
    - Hayley.
    P.S I am in love with your newest novel, about Cobra Summer.
