With community services centres in both Kings Cross and Bondi, youth space and outreach service, mental health program, twilight team, community cafe and our Aboriginal project are all designed to ensure the most disadvantaged members of our community have access to essential health, welfare, social and recreational services.

Each year, thousands of people visit Wayside for assistance in gaining equitable access to essential health, welfare and related services. In the last year alone, Wayside provided, amongst other services, 7,680 community meals, 6,776 changes of clothing, 14,100 hours of support to people with a long-term mental health issue, and 1,991 social and recreational activities for the whole community to participate in. People purchased over 86,100 low cost items in our café, there were 6,699 instances of support for youth at risk and8,703 members of the community visited Wayside to learn more about our work.

behind the scenes bondi wash

I couldn’t help but post this super cute picture of Belinda ( Bondi Wash Founder) and Sophia from a recent shoot. I love working on this local brand ( I have from the start) It’s not often as a stylist that you get to work with a brand from its beginning, from the start I have worked Belinda to create the brands unique visual identity and with each new shoot we as a team push the continue to create fresh beautiful images (thanks to the amazing native botanicals) that reflect the brands message, style and core values.

Another perk of working open this great brand is that I love and actually use all their products as does Sophia!

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.

hello Atlantic (new website)

I have arrived in Paradise just in time! After (most of) the crowds have left – phew! but also just in time to unveil the new look website of my friends at The Atlantic Byron Bay.

Awhile back I worked with one of my favourite humans Kimberly Amos one half of the brains/owners of The Atlantic. We spent a few days working with photographer Alicia Taylor  and the team at The Atlantic shooting this magical place, it really was a dream job of course! I visit often and I love to call it my (Byron Bay) home away from home (for now)

The Atlantic is the BEST place to stay here in Paradise I have been coming back since we shot here for my second book Holiday ay Home. There is a distinct feeling when you check in, suddenly you’re on Byron time, its an oasis. The rooms are awesome and decorated in their signature relaxed vibe, the grounds of the property are lush and incredible, despite being conveniently located in town the place feels private. I have a real connection to this place and the people behind it (really the have become like my family) its a special place to me and its magic, if you haven’t stayed here you really should!
