Grab your favorite sunglasses and join us on a sunny pit stop as we take our new rides for a stroll.
The Pandemic has us all staying closer to home. While this is a bummer, the experience is not without silver linings. The girls have been looking for nearby places to visit, and in the process they discovered a hidden gem. We met some local farmers and got to spend some time among their flock.

Being in quarantine for countless days, we started to feel overcome by the monotonous familiarity of our home. The same walls, the same clothes, the same people. Don’t get me wrong- we love our home and our family- but we missed the color and spontaneity of the outside world. So in an attempt to brighten our outlook and see things from a fun, new perspective- we created these images.

On rare occasions, my daughters and I, enjoy a day out on the town. An afternoon at The Milkshake Factory is nothing short of sweet and joyous. Amidst so much grumbling in the world, we found gratitude. Gratitude for the time together, the simple things in life and the taste buds at the very tips of our tongues. This “sweet” gratitude is contagious – we hope you catch it 🙂

That in the smallest duty done
Lies wealth of joy for everyone.”

A beautiful representation of how UNITED the world can really be even through extreme challenges. This is a photo story presented by Australian photographer, Alexandrena Parker and New York stylist, Maria Montane.
In early March, when the world quickly started to go into lock down, Alex and Maria decided to put their energy into something positive and creative. As FaceTime shoots began to trend online they challenged themselves to try an experimental virtual shoot. And with children all over the world began creating installations of rainbows to display in their front windows as a universal symbol of hope and positivity, Maria decided to use the 7 colours of rainbow to help curate and style the overall look. So they set out and connected with 7 families across the globe through Instagram and each child was allocated a single colour of the rainbow.
Working collaboratively in a virtual team, Maria styled from New York, Alex directed and shot via Zoom from Australia and each family created their own home set with as many things in their own house according to the colour they had been allocated. The making of the series was just as important as the final product for Maria and Alex as it challenged and pushed them to create and capture in a profoundly new way. With time zone differences, language barriers and creative direction all done through a screen, it was no easy task! But everyone worked so well together. It shows how much we can achieve collaboratively even with our differences and challenges.
Maria and Alex hope the way in which this series was created will be a small part of the history of photography… showing how the world connected in times of isolation and and helping each other through unprecedented times. Maybe one day in 150 years, future generations will be looking at virtual shoots in national galleries, like we look at Man Ray or Picasso, challenging the way art is made and presented!

We are so ready for endless Summer days and being with our forever friends.
After several long weeks of social distancing… I took my daughter and two of her closest friends to a nearby park to do a mini photoshoot. They loved dressing in some pieces from the newest collection by Velveteen Clothing. Go check out their Stylish Spring Blooms!
