A good friend recently imparted on me the saying, “A face without freckles is like a night without stars.” A truer sentiment I could not think of for my sister. Eva kindly let me snap away at her before our morning swim recently. This shoot is completely natural, with no makeup or hair products. We let the sea air & salt water do their work.

Eva is one half of the photography duo, John & Smith. Together with her fiancé Sam, they have been travelling the UK & parts of Europe for the past two years & are soon to hit Canada! If you haven’t previously seen their work, make sure you check out their Instragram.

 “A face without freckles is like a night without stars.”

Eva wears swimwear by Matteau, linen pants by Label Of Graded Goods (H&M Concept). The lace piece is an old op shop find.

The ocean has given me such a sense of peace & possibility over the last few weeks that I will make it my mission this year to be near it far more. The old cliches aren’t kidding about the restorative effects of sea air. My mission statement for 2018 is “Have camera, will travel.” Let’s do this!
