This shoot was a triumph in firsts. The first time I’ve met & shot with Demi, and the first time collaborating with Toowoomba boutique Florence & Marabel. For those of you who aren’t familiar with one or both, get cracking! Demi is stunning, shy & such a talent. With plans to head to Brisbane for study next year, I can only say, “watch this space!” This quiet achiever is going places.

Demi wears the Wildflower Wrap Dress by Steele.

It was such a thrill to meet & work with Donna & Alex, the mother/daughter duo behind Florence & Marabel. You know those boutiques that you look at online, almost afraid to walk in store for fear of impulsively shouting “take all my money”? Yeah, this is one of those. Donna & Alex styled a couple of stunning looks for me to collect. Do you think I could walk out with just those? Nope. A pair of boots later…

Demi wears the Venus Platform by Sol Sana.

As always, I’m blown away by the women around me. Courtney Baker, hair & makeup artist queen, worked her magic as always.

Demi wears the Phoebe Mongolian Vest by Lilya.

For more from Florence & Marabel, visit the boutique on Duggan St, Toowoomba and check them out online here and here.
