weekend (Bondi) photo shoot

This weekend I rendezvoused bright an earlier (5.30am!) for sunrise with Sarah Glover and Photographer Luisa Brimble for a special little beachside shoot in Bondi. It was all dreamy shades of pastels, hopefully its going to make it into Sarah’s forth coming cookbook, so I can’t share too much! I loaded up my Fiat 500x with a heaps of props including a few things from MJG 

Sarah cooked up a storm out the back of a super cute Kombi Van, right in front of the beach, her food is seriously good! and then everyone went for a swim!

Keep your eyes peeled for Sarah’s cook book and follow her on Instagram here

My phone is full of photos ( just like yours I’m sure) I love posting to Instagram but there is something magical about printing out your photos and putting them one display ( creatively) in your space.

The Canon Selphy printer ( available in store at Target and Harvey Norman) is my new favourite gadget that allows you to (easily) print photos straight from you phone.

display wall how to with mjg and canon

I have partnered with Canon to share some styling tips about printing and putting your photos on display in your home – I’m here to help get you inspired!
Your space should be filled with things you love and that tell a story. It is important to add your very own personal touch. Of course, displaying photos is the perfect way to do this. In today’s world we are all obsessed with our smartphones and snap everything we do, eat buy and see.
It’s hard to actually enjoy the moment and really be in the moment and while I think it is great to capture the life that we are living it’s also important to cherish these moments and put them on display.
I love to travel and collect things whilst away. These treasured memories and souvenirs should be cherished.
When decorating your home these memories and souvenirs are the things that really create your own personal style and how you like to live. So use them as a starting point in finding your style and you will find that this will naturally be reflected in the images you take.
Pictures don’t need to be perfect so take the pressure off yourself.
There’s plenty of time to perfect your technique. In fact some of my best photos are happy accidents when the light or timing has been just right.

My top tips for creative photo displays
1. Get your photos in your space and off your camera.
2. Decorate your space with personal touches.
3. Think outside of the box with creative ways and places to display your photos – shelves, bedside tables and sideboards are all great places.
4. Allow time for your style of photography and decorating to develop and evolve – print photos often and update your displays.
5. Group photos together and add or edit over time – style is an evolution so don’t leave things standing still but move them around.
6. Selecting a colour palette of the images (for example a group of black and white photos) ties a look together and creates a sense of sophistication and uniformity.
