A word From Hannah –

I thought it was super special that Claire actually sat in the water with me to get the right shot.

My partner and myself are originally from Nz I liked the fact that currumbin Rock pools reminded us of home. My partner is a real water lover, me not so much but I wanted to do something extra special for him.


Claire is so down to earth and easy to work with. Right from the start she not only had great communication but also had great ideas for shoot locations and wanting to know what I was wearing.
She made me feel at ease through the whole shoot, made me feel comfortable in front of the camera and while I was in the water. She used creative ideas to take the photos after I showed her Images of wanting something a little different.The photos are more than I expected as she spent a decent amount of time making sure we got the right angle and shot.¬†I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Claire, I had a fabulous afternoon¬† :)[shareprints gallery_id=”5266″ gallery_type=”masonry” gallery_position=”pos_center” gallery_width=”width_90″ image_size=”large” image_padding=”0″ theme=”dark” image_hover=”false” lightbox_type=”slide” titles=”true” captions=”true” descriptions=”true” comments=”true” sharing=”true”]Dress designer: peach/nude dress from ally fashion and fluffy coat from chica booty had it a for years.
White/ grey/ green tulle dress made by myself hannah Macleod. Using the outer layer of a dress from ally fashion- I cut out the lining and created a slit up the middle so I could add 3 layers of tulle into the dress a beige a grey and a beautiful turquoise green. I wanted to create something so when I was floating in the water it created a feeling of tranquility and peacefulness, almost like wings.
