Femininity, elegance and history are the three words for this recent shoot with fashion blogger Maya Williams. We worked together on this Nawaghem magazine feature in collaboration with fine jewellery brand, Plukka, to capture six styled looks in the beautiful grounds of Hampstead.
There is something magical about shoots when everything comes together. The location, the styling, the makeup, and of course, the subject. This is one of my favourite pieces that I’ve photographed recently, partly because I loved the looks and partly because it challenged me to work on my narrative and create a story. We spent an entire afternoon in the incredible grounds of the Hampstead Pergola, which I couldn’t get enough of. The infinite columns, romantic rose bushes, it was like a maze I never wanted to find my way out of.
The piece was featured in Nawaghem, one of the biggest online magazines in the Middle East, which was a real achievement on my part. It’s such a great feeling to have my work seen by people all over the world, it gives me all the more reason to keep bringing my creativity to life and fulfil all those photography dreams I’ve always had.
