After spending much of 2017 photographing this little secret project, I am happy to announce that Chyka Home is now available for purchase wherever good books are sold (or directly through Chyka's website here)! As you know I love my collaborations with Chyka Keebaugh, and this gorgeous hard cover coffee table book is a treasure trove of seasonal home hints, recipes, entertaining ideas, and of course, my images of Chyka's amazing styling. These shots are just a handful of the beautiful pages in this book.
One of the great things about moving to a new area are the little things you discover as you start to explore. I had seen the Franklin Coffee van parked on Mt Martha beach a few times, and just knew I had to head back to take some shots. Run by the lovely Lucy and her husband Nathan, this little vintage van makes a mean latte and is a hot favourite with the Mt Martha locals, who love their morning brew with a view.
I've been doing PR shots of the gorgeous Carolyn Creswell of Carmans Fine Foods for a few years now, and the latest batch were most definitely my favourites. Fresh, bright, and happy, a lot like the woman herself! This one was featured on the front of the latest "Carmans Muesletter".
In a quiet little area of Bay St, Port Melbourne, hip new wine bar Harry & Frankie opened over Christmas and has been steadily building a loyal clientele ever since. These guys have a great wine pedigree, really know their stuff, and have racks and racks of the stuff to choose from.
