A sigh of relief as I post these images FINALLY. I shot this editorial in January and went through a load of submissions and all kinds of delays in getting it finally together. I’m happy to post it now – the wait was absolutely worth it because I convinced the very talented artist/illustrator Chris King to collaborate with me. You can see his work on three of the images – and the rest is my rudimental graphics work. The star of the shoot is the divine Miss Cherie who hails from Western Australia just like myself. I discovered this intriguing beauty through trawling on instagram and was immediately taken – this is a babe who is beating her own drum. Follow Cherie on instagram to see exactly why she’s so cool  HERE. Thanks so much Cherie for allowing me to drag you around shopping centres and arcades to steal kittens, ride kiddie bikes and stash up trolleys and snap these images – a step outside my comfort zone (flash!) but worth the risk.

Illustration – Chris King (check out his work – you won’t be disappointed!)
