When the supremely talented Penny from The Little Lending Company got in touch about a potential styled shoot I was pretty excited. She is an arbiter of good taste, and her company has been lending beautiful, bohemian props and styling accessories in Norfolk and the surrounding areas for the past couple of years.

The shoot took place at West Lexham, a fabulous and relaxed venue, with a lake, river, on site tree houses for glamping, and lots of space to stretch out. A real hidden gem.

I don’t do many styled shoots, mainly because the world has enough images of models with vintage style teacups, but that’s unless I get to create some images for my portfolio that I really love, and in this case I really have and I’m so pleased to finally share them with you.

I’m planning on working on a number of other test shoots this year, so if you’re interested in collaborating on something, then just get in touch and let me know.
