Two’s Company

It was a total pleasure to work twice in quick succession with James a while ago – during the first shoot we had at a beautiful location near my house (15th century ruins, a river… and the mist was rolling in during the early morning so atmospherically!), I mentioned that a model friend of mine, Jessamyne will be staying with me for a while the next week as she was visiting from LA. He snapped up the opportunity to photograph us both together (we hadn’t officially advertised it) and went for dreamy, pre-Raphaelite-esque styles, towards which Jessamyne & I naturally gravitate in taste/style anyway. It was lovely! For that second shoot, the three of us went to my local ancient woodland and basically played around in the trees with flowers in our hair… bliss! During her stay, we did lots of sightseeing around my hometown, Oxford, and I saw it in a fresh new light (I already was in love with it, but now I’m even more so) – we did the open top bus among other things, which I really recommend. Honestly, you can’t walk a single centimetre here without incredible history, literary figures, politicians, world events, science and arts and all sorts of eminent leaders jostling along with you.

(The rest of the time we basically did face masks, watched period dramas and ate vegan chocolate with figs… :-))

I’m looking forward to seeing Jessamyne again later this year in wonderful Australia! It’s going to be amazing!

With thanks to James for letting me share these photos. 🙂

The sea sees me

These photos were taken in Fuerteventura in Dec by Jeremy Howitt (who wins awards for not being bored of me after so many shoots and wanting to photograph me so much in so many places; it’s a joy!). It was a quick whirlwind of a trip for me, a few days in the heat and dunes – I was actually horribly ill during this trip and struggling to breathe/function, but I don’t think you can tell. I really do consider myself to have had great luck with my modelling in terms of what I’ve experienced. SO grateful for these opportunities! I’m finding it quite a balancing act at the moment while going in multiple directions, but I will always want to come back to this sort of thing and say yes to as many things as I can.

And it’s a great, visceral pleasure for me to pose in and around water – flowing, peaceful and wild.
