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!
