As many of you will know, I’m for sure more comfortable being the other side of the camera but couldn’t turn down the opportunity of being on the cover of Mamalife Magazine and sharing my story with their readership.
Now for any of you that think model life Is glam, your very mistaken. After many years of being a photographer I know what goes on behind the scenes and it’s never as incredible as it may look in the image. I remember once asking a girl to lay in a rubbish dump… stunk…. but the image was amazing!
The shoot took place in a factory building and it was bloody freezing and covered in the most bizarre props from chains, to rocking horses, trampolines and beds… but that didn’t stop us! We were on a mission. The room soon warmed up and off we went. Hair and make up was created by the talented Jamie and Claire who made us look and feel gorgeous with Emily in charge of capturing those cover worthy shots!
It was such a fun day and before we knew it we had worked through lunch and it was time to go home.
This shoot was so much more than just another photoshoot. It captured 3 women, survivors, fighters. We didn’t waste our day talking about our past experiences and I’m sure I will relate to both stories when I read them. What we did was enjoy the fact that we have risen…we have survived, and we are here to help others do the same!
