luisabrimble My friend @amber_creswell_bell said 'Plants fixes EVERYTHING.' Lately I found myself apologising to people whenever I invite them to come to my house. I always include a postscript saying "just to let you know that my house is very basic and not interior design worthy so to speak ... but I promise you a good feed." I'd like to rectify this and start collecting indoor plants. I've been really inspired by my trip to Portland last year. The one thing I took from it was their prominent use of indoor plants. Anyway I just blogged a few in a series called 'Portland House Plants' featuring the humble abodes of The Fitzgerald's - @madebysohn @jamesfitzfranz, The @kinfolk office, @xochitl_adriana and @julieepointer's.

luisabrimble 'Under the pomegranate tree' - installation by one clever floral warrior Amelia of @theflowerera. Does anybody know the name of this delicate berry looking foliage? Modelled by @isobellalencia for @lovestoned__ 4d

luisabrimble You know when they said surround yourself with like-minded people? Well you can literally do this because all of them are in the one roof at @thenestcreativespace. I was shooting content today for Amelia of @theflowerera but we manage to also get @millydent @artistmelissacarey @arielleaxel @resoandco and @melissa_mcm involved. Although not a resident of @thenestcreativespace thank you @rychellecarter of @lovestoned__ for helping us out today. 4d

luisabrimble No. 46 'No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.' - Regina Brett's 50 life lessons. Today was hot! Today I didn't have a paid job to shoot. Today I forced myself, Beth & Poppy to get ready. Today I dragged my two girls for a 'play' photoshoot with @jesskneebone. Even if I didn't have any paid job I know that it will be nice to just stay home but I forced myself to get up, dress up and show up. The only way I will get better in photography is to shoot, shoot and shoot some more. It's the way I hustle. I shoot to hustle. I shoot eventhough I only end up with this one frame that I love the most from all the frames that I shot today. Here's to No. 46. 5d

luisabrimble Golly it's funny that this image still comes up in Pinterest. This one time when you manage to put together an elaborate team of collaborators. A make-up artist (@makeupbymegan), hair stylist, floral crowns, designer (Erin Louise) and 4 gorgeous models each now doing big things I believe. 6d

luisabrimble You always remember your 'first' right? I love remembering significant firsts - first love, first kiss, first wedding I ever photographed, first cookbook shoot, first time my images were published etc… And so for the first time in my life I've been invited to be in an exhibition at SAINT CLOCHE (@saint_cloche) a brand new purpose-built gallery concept space in Sydney's Paddington opening next week.
The incredible @amber_creswell_bell handpicked a really diverse group of talented local artists, photographers and ceramicists, each contributing a collection of pieces for a group show named 'ART/VERT' - the "vert" comes from the fact that @amber_creswell_bell will be decking out the gallery space with lush potted indoor greenery - which is all available to purchase.

Come join us on launch day Saturday 31st JAN for a glass of sparkling, and meet the artists who can chat to you about their beautiful works.
FEATURING: @emilybesser @taracarbonara @fionakatesimplegorgeous @slabandslubalisonfraser @tinytrappings @evi_o @alexstanden @drewdrewathing @aliwoodsydney

Please check @amber_creswell_bell and @saint_cloche's instagram for more details. #artvertsydney

luisabrimble My dream workshops are the ones where it's more of an experience. I get so excited at any opportunity where we can create scenes to photograph. It's not every day where we get to go to have an impromptu breakfast in an open field covered with early morning fog, visit a local farm, paint with watercolours, make pasta from scratch and more importantly connect with like-minded creatives over long lunches and dinners. We did a trial run of this kind of workshop last year at @locallovely's family home, Kimbri in Rydal, Blue Mountains. It was every bit perfect and so this year along with @locallovely and @stephanie_somebody we are running 2 Autumn Food Photography & Styling Pracshops. Pracshops because it will be 80% practical experience, more hands on and 20% theory covering workflow, editing, ways to help you find your own style, collaboration and social media presence. Plus Annie Herron the resident art teacher will teach us the art of seeing techniques and exercises. The idea is for our attendees whether you're an aspiring food photographers or bloggers to come away with inspiration and tips in creating your own content. For bookings or more info of the upcoming @locallovely Autumn Food Photography & Styling Pracshops please click the link in my profile. Currently we only have 2 spots left for 31st March/1st April and 8 spots left for 25th/26th May 2015. See you there! 2w

luisabrimble My bad! Breakfast yesterday was supposed to be called Sour Cherry and Rose Petal, Paleo Granola and Coconut Yoghurt. If you meet a chef or a good cook make a mental note to keep them close and if you're lucky be one of their BFF's ! @missarahglover you're clever with flavours and looking forward to lots more of shooting days with you. On another note and a very quick sneaky information for those of you who reads long-winded captions just to let you know that I'm co-hosting 2 x Local is Lovely Autumn Pracshops with @locallovely and @stephanie_somebody one in late March and late May. I've included a link in my profile for anyone interested in coming along. 3w

luisabrimble First shoot of 2015 for @missarahglover, we were shooting content for her new upcoming blog. It was a good idea not to have breakfast this morning. I was really looking forward to Sarah's homemade toasted muesli and my most favourite coconut yoghurt. It's always so much fun playing with you @erikarax thank you for helping us with styling. 3w

luisabrimble Once upon a time there was a magazine called Terroir based in Singapore. Two years ago they announced an indefinite hiatus in publishing it and so grabbed myself the last copy but then misplaced it. I begged Benjamin Koh - @burgerkingjr the editor if he can please make me another copy. You see Ben makes these magazine by hand - he designs, prints it at home and handstitch the pages together. What I love about Terroir Magazine is the love and care and the passion all put in to a printed format. @burgerkingjr I really hope that one day Terroir magazine comes back again and thank you for going out of your way to make me another one. Ps by the way @amber_creswell_bell thank you for the surprise succulent plant you left in my doorstep. You're so incredibly thoughtful. 3w
