VAMFF – Bridal / Romantic Look
Penny Higgs & La-toyah Asha
For the launch of Eon Neavou, a creative production company, I worked with a talented team of Melbourne creatives, to produce two very different fashion photoshoots in one day.
Penny Higgs gallery
The first photoshoot featured model/dancer Penny Higgs (from So You Think You Can Dance) modelling three amazing designer looks styled by Rebecca Kennedy (Style Guru). Shoutout to Christopher & Alexander’s Lighting in St Kilda for the amazing location.

Eon Neavou launching soon – watch this space!
Jessica wears L.A.M.B by Gwen Stefani
The concept for this photoshoot had been on my mind for sometime, in anticipation of the perfect Spring day. The theme was inspired by the nonchalance of Picnic at Hanging Rock, distinctly Australian, with a modern take on Victorian-era fashion.
The hauntingly beautiful model Jessica ann Cogan brought the shoot to life. Shot on location at Melbourne’s Royal Botanical Gardens during the Spring bloom, the Victorian-era public park provided the perfect backdrop with it’s mix of English flora and Australian gum trees.
I also assumed the role of stylist, sourcing designer pieces with Victorian frills, pussy bows and embroidery, including; L.A.M.B, Fleur Wood, Alannah Hill and vintage shoes.
Check out the photoshoot in my Portfolio and Flickr.
