When I take photos of people, I love to get up really close, to capture the detail in their smile and the glint in their eyes. My kids are always moaning "Move away Mum, you're too close!". Of course I ignore them and with that I am able to capture some real magic. And so it's the same with flowers - up close and personal, in their faces and constantly amazed by how truly amazing Mother Nature is.

My Mum has always grown the most stunning and intricate Roses, so they are a familiar friend - but through this process I became obsessed with Magnolias, Waratahs and Proteas. All of these flowers were locally sourced, from my garden, neighbours front yards and local florists. (Summer 2018 / 19)
