Swallow and Twig nautical shoot

You may remember the name Swallow and Twig from my last shoot with the Halifax artist and Jewellery designer which was shot in the Public Gardens just over a year ago. That shoot was heavily inspired by the jewellery, which included some designs which reminded me of the movie UP! Similarly this shoot was heavily inspired by the jewellery, this time mainly consisting of nautical themed pieces from her Nautical 2012 series,  including- Aquatic, Sailor Jerry and Marina. We headed to my favourite harbour-side location in the eastern passage at Fishermans Cove at sunset and then when we lost light I finished up a few of the pieces the next day picking berries. If you're thinking about starting Christmas shopping (It's my birthday tomorrow so that means it is 8 weeks until Christmas) I'd highly recommend getting in early and making an order with Mary to custom make you a piece of her wearable art. 

Big thankyou to my models Zach, Aiden, Steph, Laura and Cameron.

Models Brianna and Robynn for Atlantic Art Couture

 This summer I was lucky enough to be asked again by east coast Jewellery designer Jessie of Atlantic Art Couture to photograph her new line of jewellery which I got a strong woodland feel from. I adore all things with antlers and also a good walk in the woods so I knew that we could put our heads together and come up with a great idea for a shoot! I got together with the beautiful Brianna and Robynn and went for a walk through Point Pleasant Park in Halifax and had fun shooting with a cool vintage typewriter I picked up, vintage camera I was given, with some cars that just happened to be there and of course the gorgeous jewellery!

How could we just walk past this car! The owner was even so accommodating as to move it to a different space in the car park so that we had a better backdrop!

I had to have this terrarium ring with the Effiel tower in it and on my trip last month took a couple of shots with it from the top of the tower and with the real tower itself!
