I like pink and I cannot lie…

It’s having a moment… Millennial Pink…  My favourite colour has been given a name, it’s trending, it’s the ‘go to’ colour for everything now….

A soft, blush, chalky muted pink that will go well with dark teal walls or a softer dove grey, home interior magazines and Instagram feeds are going crazy for this popular colour. Big name brands such as Le Creuset and Kitchenaid both have newly launched products in the colour, John Lewis has called 2017 ‘the year of Millennial Pink’…

I’m not sure what to think about this!! Have I fallen for a big marketing plot or can I think for myself!? I’ve been happy to see more pink things recently because I’m a big fan, but (tongue in cheek) I am waaay ahead of the trends, I’ve used the colour for my branding for a while now, but not because it’s cool… because I like it, and that’s the important thing to think about when we’re talking ‘trends’ … do what you like because YOU like it!! It is really hard to stop yourself from being influenced by social media but stick to what feels right, don’t compare yourself to others and be yourself. OK rant over!

Paper cuts & Peonies – A styled shoot for Jill Blanc Designs

jill blanc designs

…. heres something ive been working on recently with a supertalented lady, Jill.She makes wedding invitations and lots of other pretty paper things, i love her style and even though she’d never been in front of the camera she was the perfect model 🙂

check out her work on  Facebook or Website

It was a full days shoot, with a couple of wardrobe changes, we had Jills house as the backdrop and we styled the kitchen table with some of her yummy cupcakes and pretty knicknacks she has,  Jill wanted to show both sides of her personality, the rock chick (check out her handmade headpiece too) and the pretty in pink look. Even though i love pink my favourites ended up being the ‘cover girl’ style , a bit fierce and very cool rock chick!

We had the perfect day, im sure Jill would agree   🙂

(i shot natural light with the 60D and almost all the photos are with the 50mm  1.4 lens)
