I am FINALLY launching my @52Ladies project :) please follow that page to get a weekly injection of female inspiration! I'll be posting pretty quotes again and putting up each Lady of The Week 😍

Inspired by International Women’s Day, I want to photograph 52 ladies, one a week, from my life and recommended to me. To me, the most inspiring women in my life are my friends and family.

They are the ones who push me to go further and pick me up when I’m down. I couldn’t do anything without my girl gang. I want to empower my ladies to see themselves how I see them.

I know a lot of us can be shy in front of the camera, but what is more empowering than owning our own image and being proud of who we are? Know that I am proud of every single one of you. It’s about seeing yourself how I see you – wonderful, clever, brave, strong, incredible and inspiring.

All of the portraits will be taken in black and white so that the focus will be on your wonderful spark. And don’t we all look better in black and white?! Not only did I want to take beautiful portraits of these gorgeous ladies, I also wanted to give them a chance to reflect on what matters to them and what they value about being female. I’ve given them all quite a few questions and asked them to answer whichever ones they like the most. Hopefully, it will allow you to see each of them as not only beautiful in their photo but stunning through their words.

If you know someone inspiring I should include, please recommend them. Could be your best friend, Mum, colleague etc.

This is a project I started a few months ago – right after International Women’s Day in March – and I’m so happy to be finally starting to post the series.

So @elsummons is of course first and you can read all about her on my blog (link in profile). Thanks if you actually took the time to read this and I'd love it if you left me a little heart as a comment if this project resonates with you 😍

I know it is one of the most shared views in Canberra, but there's a reason for that 😍

This weekend was truly legend-wait for it-dary 😍 it was filled with visiting Vivid on Friday night, an amazing brunch in Sydney, one of the best house parties ever (because the Priscilla Queen of Desert theme was just so fun), this sunset, a delicious Canberra brunch, walks around the lake with one of my favourites and then topped off with home-made apple pie 🍏😍🍎 this weekend was one for the record books.
