I'm also planning to start doing self portraits again, I always love doing a self portrait and don't really have an excuse as to why I don't do them anymore. I have some really cool ideas of what I want to achieve and it also gives me a chance to try out new lighting styles too.
Christmas is near... I like a big kid.. always excited!!

So here's a huge update for you all.
I took a small break from photography so I could get on with other business and also to get some test shoots done. I also started up two new blogs (Ill get to those later down)
During my break I was taking on retouching work which I found a little boring as I was retouching everyone else's great work and not my own, but on a plus my retouching skills have gotten better and better, I have learnt some great new skills which I'm over the moon about. Sometimes you need a break from doing what you love to give yourself some time to refresh your ideas and realise how much you love it!
The fall has bought me some great work, this time of year always gets very busy and I'm happy to be shooting again, as soon as things die down I plan to start testing again too, there are so many things I want to work on and I have been gathering up ideas and am raring to go! The short break has done me good.
I have always been a lover of skincare so I decided to start a beauty, skincare and makeup reviews blog (http://www.beautywowza.wordpress.com/) I'm very passionate about skin and believe if you look after it you'll gain in the long run. The blog was something I thought id do because I think its important for all busy woman to know about all the great skincare products out there and all the great quick fixes you can use on a daily basis to help your skin that one step further. Please visit the blog, I really hope what I post helps you guys and feel free to comment and leave feedback :)
I also made a sister blog called Wowzashoes (http://www.wowzashoes.wordpress.com/) I'm also crazy about shoes, so this is blog is all about current shoe trends, who's doing what in terms of great shoes, shoe bargains, cheaper alternatives to designer styles and much more. If you're a shoe lover I recommend you check it out, I update on a daily basis.
Anyhoo... I wont babble on but I do plan to start blogging here again too. I have missed updating what I have been getting up to and posting all about my shoots.
Ciao for now

Me & Chantelle have been putting together our next series of shoots that we want to work on. After shooting the amazing 'Albinism' series that was featured in 'Lifescape magazine' it made us realise we really wanted to work on shoots with amazing storylines and issues that can be turned into something beautiful.
Ive not been feeling too good the last week or so.. So I have just been concentrating on getting better and gettting the ball rolling for what in store over the next few months.
Im still on a health kick too.. Ive noticed eating and working out really does help with everyday energy and well being.
Im also addicted to reading at the moment... Ive always been a book worm especially if I read something that gets me hooked. After reading all of Stephanie Mayers Twilight saga Ive moved onto the classics and am Reading Jane Austen. As much as I loved Stephanie Mayers books I really needed something a little more challenging to read. Im currently reading 'Mansfield Park' and quite liking it.. I must say Im not as hooked as I was when I was reading The Twilight sagas but I think that says more about my love for 'Edaward Cullen' and not my love for reading LOL. I have a huge list of books I want to read and the list seems to get larger everyday.
Moving on... I discovered these amazing designers who make the most fabulous leather jackets check them out http://www.mikeandchris.com/. There jackets are amazing.. I have to own one... Ive always been quite a little fashionista but have noticed recently that my wardorbe needs a update... So I am officially on a major shopping spree for new clothes, bags, acessories etc. I cant wait.
Anyhoo.. thats all for now
p.s check out my interview with bloggers Ohh la lavely - http://oohlalavely.tumblr.com/post/158824054/interview-with-photographer-priya-sonn-priya

Im really excited as Ive seen the pages of my mag features for July.. They look HOT!!! I cant wait till there in print!!!!
Also... Ive apodted a healthy lifestyle, Ive been a little bit of a health freak for a while now but sometimes routines can slip. Over easter my eating habbits just got really bad and it reflected on my general health. I have now got back into routine and feel great, I have alot more energy too which is what I need.
At the moment im eating healthy without snacking.. and if I do snack its on raw veg, fruit and dried fruit too. (Organic dried mango is yummy) Im eating Brown rice and salad and opting for lighter evening meals as appose to heavy ones.
Drinking smoothies for breaky is also helping as I dont feel hungry too soon after a good smoothie.
Im also running everyday which is really helping my lower body strength, I also try and pump weights when I can in the week for around 20mins to really work on my upper body strength. All in all im liking this new lifestyle of working out and watching what I eat. Overall energy is fab which I love!! on a downer.. My hayfever is killing me!! LOL
Shooting is going great with some really fab shoots lined up.. getting on the ball and cant wait to see results.
Also a few weeks ago I had an email from one of my photography idols Nisha Kutty (http://www.nishakutty.com/)
Nisha is a female asian Photographer based in New York and Bombay.. It was so lovely to hear from her, I had to read the email quite a few times before I even believed she had written to me.. amazing lady who gave me some really good advice which I have taken into consideration for my future projects.
Hope yo Londoners are enjoying this fab weather.. I am!!!
ciao for now

Im not at all pulling a race card... just expressing what I have indeed experienced in the past!!! and believe me I have experienced my fair share of it!!!!
Im a facebook socialite.... I must say I do enjoy networking on the site... I have also been lucky enough to meet many of my clients on there too...
I was browsing through the other day and came across and facebook group, I dont even know how such a group was even allowed to be made " British jobs for Real British people" ok so maybe im a little rusty on what certain people think "real British people are" but I pretty sure that was a dig at Ethnics... So I went on to read some of the comments on the group (which by the way was a really bad idea, as I was only going to get really annoyed.) The comments were just damn right rude!!! I was overly affended!!
Now me being real as always.. would have thought those people would be more annoyed at MP's who buy things for thier home eg. Fully fitted kitchens, plug holes, Porn Dvd's and much more out of tax payers money than be annoyed at ethnic people working and paying thier taxes???
just something I really needed to air out!!!
