Eco-ethical sustainable cruelty-free makeup artist Robertson Southern Highlands NSW Sydney
On a classically cold misty Robertson Southern Highlands afternoon on a dairy farm, a group of ethical, eco-friendly sustainable vendors and a very brave gorgeous model Lily ventured out to create an unbelievably beautiful shoot.
The amazing team of Hilary Cam Photography excelled themselves as always, capturing the beauty of the Southern Highlands so well, as well as Ethical Clothing Accredited Pearl Button’s stunning recycled lace gowns.
The handmade invitations were lovingly painted in watercolours on recycled handmade paper by Elk Prints. The beautiful flowers were by Dragonfly Magnolia who sources all of her flowers locally and uses only sustainable packaging, and the delicious cakes were by The Sweet Cake Collectiion using only the purest of ingredients.
Hair and makeup were by me, with the patient assistance of Jess.
The funniest and hardest part of this shoot were the animals as always!
Totally unpredictable and not always willing. The horse did not want to be photographed, and when one of the cows suddenly moved, it took off with our gorgeous Lily on its back! Although she fell off, she got up again and kept modelling – not surprisingly, she informed us this was the last time she would model, which is a pity, she looks so amazing on camera (and just as stunning in real life!)
The funny sheep had us in fits of laughter at times, and at one stage the farm dog and Hilary and Nic’s dog tried to join the shoot, which had everyone bar Hilary beside themselves with laughter.
As the evening mists rolled in, my beautiful Victorian couch ended up in the middle of a rise – so worth it.
Jess also did the hair and makeup for our gorgeous host Brooke McGee whose property we were on – thinking we may need to hit her up to be the next model for a photoshoot!
