Wedding season has well and truly begun! Have already heard of new engagements, attended and photographed a couple of weddings in this month alone. Love is in the air! Haha full of cheese :)
So... this is an absolutely beautiful wedding I second shot for my sister Kate Robinson. See more on Kate's blog here.
I'm super busy with uni work at the moment as the end of semester is racing closer and closer. Eek! Cannot wait to finish and have a nice break. Yay for more summery weather too! Summer is my absolute favourite!
LOVE the blossoms!

Being so busy with work, uni, friends, family and life it is often easy to lose focus of why you do what you do. We all have creative blocks, get stressed, fed up with what we're doing and the odd meltdown too! Being at art school your mind gets a little messed up sometimes with all the analysing, researching, critiquing and communicating. I photograph because it makes me happy and I like to create images that I am proud of and that other people enjoy. As a photographer you are able to show people your unique view of the world. Inspiration comes from everywhere! Today I was inspired by a talk Chris Sisarich gave at Uni, showing us some of his incredible work and giving a lot of valuable advice and encouragement. Who/What inspires you?
P.S. Still buzzing that the All Blacks won the Rugby World Cup! So proud to be a kiwi :)

Shot my first wedding for the Summer on Saturday with Kate Robinson, it was beautiful! So excited for many more to come. I am all blocked up with the flu at the moment which is super lame so I'm glad I'm on holiday and can recuperate for a while. However, it doesn't feel like a holiday with how busy I have been and I have so much uni work to do also. Cannot wait for actual Summer holiday!! So happy the All Blacks won the rugby, such a buzz at the moment in Auckland! These are a few photographs from some weddings I second-shot in the last 12 months.

Tomorrow wedding season begins for me!! I'm second-shooting this Summer with my amazingly talented sister Kate Robinson and I'm SO excited. We have plenty of weddings lined up for the Summer and it is going to be brill! I love all the little details that go into planning that special day and it is an honour to be a part of making that couple's day the best of their life! Here's a quick peek at a wedding from last Summer which I'll show a few more from later... You can also see more of the photographs from that wedding here. Plenty more to come! Yay!

Last Semester in my Studio class we had to create a series of work about anything we wanted using studio lighting (artificial, constructed light). I decided to do a sort of beauty look-book which I named Svelte. I had three "looks"- evening, natural/daytime and retro/pin-up girl. I styled, 'make-uped', photographed, edited and designed the whole thing myself and had it printed and bound professionally. It was an exciting process where I learned lots. I've been thinking about doing a proper make-up course to up my skills a bit, which would be very handy for photo-shoots. Something to consider? These are a few pages from 'Svelte'.
On another note I am quite enjoying the excitement the Rugby World Cup has brought to Auckland and... Go the All Blacks!!!
