Well, 2020 didn’t turn out how we expected now did it? First unprecendented bushfires ripped across Australia and then COVID-19 spread like wildfire around the world.
We were very lucky in this country that restrictions were relatively short lived and while we were encouraged to ‘stay home, save lives’, we weren’t in the extreme lockdown that some nations were experiencing. But that’s not to say it wasn’t hard. Tensions were high as people either lost jobs or put themselves at risk by continuing to show up to work and provide essential services.
Many of us feared for our physical and mental health, some attempting to educate children from home while juggling the demands of increasingly stressful jobs and the horror of the never-ending Zoom meeting. The toughest part for me personally was suddenly being starved of face to face interaction and human connection. What I hadn’t realised until it was taken away was that as a photographer, what truly inspires and drives me is meeting people, hearing their stories and connecting with them.
And so I began photographing women of iso, telling their stories but also giving them a reason to get dressed up and out of the house, to look and feel amazing if only for a moment – something we were all craving if the bin outings were anything to go by! All Dressed Up, Nowhere To Go is a collection of beautiful women sharing their experiences and their stories, but also observing their own inner beauty shining through for the first time in a long while (or in some cases, ever). If the women I photographed proved one thing, it was never let anything – not even a pandemic – dull your sparkle.
'All dressed up, nowhere to go' is a fine art photography series celebrating the women of iso. A magazine-worthy photoshoot that will make you feel like a celebrity - because you're worth it.
At Daisy Stockbridge Photography Studios, we believe everyone deserves a beautiful portrait - it can change the way you see yourself forever. And right now, we all need an excuse to get dressed up and out of the house - looking and feeling beautiful!
Prior experience is not required, you don't need to be 'photogenic' (that's the photographer's job to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera) or looking your best (good lighting melts iso weight, we promise!)
Cost of the photoshoot is $155 which will be credited to any purchase and includes:
* 1 hour photographic session at our Bilgola Plateau studio
* Pre-shoot style consultation, access to hair and make-up and designer wardrobe (additional cost)
* Feature image in 'All dressed up, nowhere to go' fine art photographic series including book available for purchase
