Vieille Branche {Brisbane}

"The Old Branch"

Vieille Branche in Albion Brisbane is a place that once you walk in the "doors" you become completely and utterly overcome with inspiration.  I said "doors" because technically they don't have doors, its a warehouse you see, its different to other coffee shops and restaurants.  Its unique and its why its become one of Brisbane's best coffee shops and music venues! 

To be asked to photograph the owners Jen & JC and their little one Manou was such a privilege and a little nerve wracking because Jen is an amazing photographer herself.... just check out her Instagram feed... they are all her images!  

So I give you a sneak peek of one of my favourite portraits of Jen herself.  I love everything about it, from the expression to her gorgeous crinkled linen top to the hint of ribbon in her hair.  Jen is so stunning and she doesn't even know it.  

My partner in crime was responsible for Jens gorgeous makeup and hair on the day.  Thanks Livie!!! xxxx

Flower Crown Workshop {Brisbane Portrait Photographer}

Beauty begins the moment you start being yourself....{Coco Chanel}If there is anything in life that makes you stop and rethink the direction you are going in ... its moving countries.  Especially moving home.  Because when you move home its wonderful and you get to be closer to your family which is the best but lets face it... its not exciting like moving overseas to another city.  Its not exotic, its home.  Its comfortable and its nice.  Ive had to rethink everything because i wasn't happy the direction my work was taking me in.  My passion is people and portraiture.    If you look back at my work its pretty plain to see.  Finally a few weeks ago I decided to put myself out there so that I could meet some more creative people, not photographers, people.  It doesn't matter what they do I just need to be in their company.  I have to say it was the best thing ive done for myself creatively in about a year.  I met Chris from Wild At Heart Flowers for the first time at her workshop and all these lovely ladies who wanted to learn how to make Flower Crowns.  It was a beautiful afternoon full of creativity, stunning flowers and all in a beautiful shop that i am now obsessed with..... Vieille Branche in Albion.  Vieille Branche have many more workshops with wood work, basket weaving, more flower workshops from Chris and hopefully in November...... a work shop on Portrait Photography by aka... me.  *insert scared face*.  I will be in touch with more details but for now I hope you enjoy looking through a wonderful afternoon with some truely lovely people.  If you haven't checked out the Vieille Branche shop you really should its an incredible space full of authentic vintage French furniture.  Until then.  Warm regards.  Britt x#brisbane#photographer #portrait #natural #light #family #engagement
