I am a portrait photographer with a passion for styling, I love working with color theory and I use my children (somewhat willingly) as models in a lot of my work. However, while homeschooling a ten-year-old and looking after a toddler during lockdowns, getting creative was often limited and I had to think outside the box. 

I like to create series that are aesthetically pleasing, and I felt inspired to create some flat lays with my daughter simply using items from around the house. Over a couple of weeks we collected each color on the spectrum and began styling.
