Photography by Alana Paterson

Photography hasn’t featured here on the site in a long time, generally I don’t come across many portfolios that entice me (I’m quite picky!). Either that or they’ve been shown here on the blog before. I guess that becomes a problem in itself, I’m regularly checking back with individuals that I already know but aren’t discovering many others.

Portrait photography by Jennilee Marigomen

I’m sure not everyone will be able to remember this reference point but I really enjoyed the imagery Jennilee Marigomen shot for the Neighbour store for autumn/winter last year. In a moment of pondering I thought I’d revisit the webpage of the photographer and see what else she had been up too, which eventually lead to me sharing this collection with you all now. This set is obviously less about the clothing and more …
