Shot at sunset, I went for a glam, fun and down-to-earth vibe, which is exactly who Tate is. With some fabulous clothes from Jeanswest, I styled the wardrobe with fashion-forward pieces which have a tribal edge, yet not explicitly ‘maternity wear’. Check out the series below.

If you have been following me on Instagram, you may have seen a plethora of behind the scenes imagery I posted in Europe. I’m pleased to finally show you the final product.
In Rome, I collaborated with three amazing alternative models on a series of fashion photoshoots. Each one unique, showcasing a different underground take on the Eternal City’s thriving fashion scene.

Open House Melbourne is always a highlight of my annual photography events. I am a sucker for local history and sneaking into places, and it was a pleasure to be able to give back to this cultural event by volunteering as an event photography. Over the weekend, I managed to see behind closed doors of some remarkable historic sights that I had never seen and revisit some old favourites.
Check out my archive of Open House Melbourne photos 2010-2014.
Argus BuildingDuring my Uni days, the Argus Building on the corner of Elizabeth & Latrobe Streets was always boarded up, covered in graffiti and probably occupied by squatters. I was intrigued.
The Argus Building was home to local newspaper The Argus, which ceased publication in the 1950s and ceased occupation. It’s beaux arts-style architecture fell into disrepair until the Melbourne Institute of Technology earmarked it for redevelopment to turn it into a bustling CBD campus. While only the facade was heritage listed, the long-term foresight of the university and architect firm DesignInc painstakingly restored the foyer and it’s ornate vaulted ceiling to its former grandeur. OHM provided the first glimpse of the renovations to the public, due to open January 2015.
Old Melbourne GaolBelieve it or not, this was my first time visiting the Old Melbourne Gaol (well… I am a local, not a tourist). What a way to experience it – illuminated red for Open House Melbourne’s Pop-up Bar event. Built in 1839, it famously housed bush-ranger Ned Kelly. Now a museum, you can explore the gaol cells and learn about the men and women who were imprisoned here, some notorious, some wrongly convicted, which gives great insight to the values Australia held at the time.
Hawthorn Tram DepotFinally opened to the public, I believe the Hawthorn Tram Depot will become one of Melbourne’s must-see tourist spots. Housing an impressively restored collection of Melbourne’s tram fleet throughout the years, patrons can walk in, sit in the drivers seat and toot the horns of these iconic public transportation vehicles.
St Patrick’s CathedralBuilt in the heat of Melbourne’s gold rush, this cathedral was built in the opulence of Gothic Revival style, which perfectly encapsulates ‘booming Melbourne’. I liked this cute moment captured, a little girl mesmerised by the candles against the grandeur of the medieval-style doors.
Hamer HallFrom the old, to the new… I satisfied my inner music nerd with a visit to The Arts Centre. It’s not often that we celebrate 1980′s architecture, but the lights reflecting in the mirrored staircase is a fantastic way to enter a venue.
Forty media arts projects lit Gertrude St; from buildings, to shop windows and even a Volkswagen Beatle were all fair game for these artists. Low light photography has always been a passion of mine, so I always make sure to photograph this event (check out my 2013 photos here). However, these works are best experienced in real life.
Here are just a few photographic highlights from the festival. View the full 2014 Gallery on Flickr.
