This November marks a year since I launched myself as a full time freelance photographer. As well as marking the past year as a success it was important to me to thank my clients, mentors, friends and family, as it is with the support of these people that I am able to do what I do. I threw a nautical/tropical themed evening event at The Neighbourhood Studio and I worked with my clever friend Greta Menzies to come up with a gift that my guests could help create at the screen printing studio then take home. Becky and Jeremy from Can't Live Without and Jacqui from Libertine Blends donated their lovely products for the gift bags and Unna from The Forest Cantina made the most beautiful birthday cakes! There are lots of people to thank, including yourself for taking the time to read this post, browse the images and being a part of my community.
