Jemma one of my favorite sessions of 2019 (I can't remember the date exactly that we took these but it was in September) If you are wondering I rock my beach sessions all year around and regardless the weather.


Jemma is one of the most incredibly real and authentic Women that I had the pleasure of getting to know and capture last year. Her honesty and the vulnerability she shared with me really allowed me to truly capture her in such a beautiful and captivating way.

We combined our ideas and wardrobes to create her viking-glam look. Her cream skirt is one of my fave pieces from my photo wardrobe its super flattering on the hips I love how it catches the wind like a ships sale.  We teamed this skirt with her Grandmas fur stole which traditionally wouldn't have been draped like this but I like the softness it added to her look. The team at Halcyon created her makeup and hair to suit (

I am pretty lucky that I get to meet Amazing Women like Jemma who share their story's with me. Its truly humbling.

Thanks so much Jemma as much as I have given you - you have given to me.
