Happy Australia Day! I hope you're all wearing your green and gold colours and standard Australia Day flag as a cape per tradition. It is by pure chance that the colours featured in this week's shoot are green, gold and white.

This shoot was conducted the morning of the scorching 40+ degrees temperatures in Brisbane. We managed to get the shots in about 15 minutes which we were both very pleased about so my photographer friend and I rushed to a pool to freshen up afterwards and then sat in the air-conditioning for the rest of the afternoon.

These fabulous shorts were purchased from American Apparel down in Melbourne from their Chapel Street store. I hummed and hummed about buying them but my friend convinced me and now I am really pleased that I did. I think that sunflowers are the epitome of brightness, sunshine and happiness. I hope that your summer is filled with these things.
