Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. — Marilyn Munroe
While I’ve been a huge fan of pinup and retro photography I’ve not had the chance to actually have a pinup shoot. I have always wanted to shoot with Lauren Horwood, so when the chance to shoot came about, I jumped at it. We set the date and I am so happy with the results. I can’t wait to book in for another shoot with here again soon. This post features some of my favourite shots.
For this shoot, we met at the Camellia Gardens in Caringbah, NSW – a place that I have always had a soft spot for.

We’ll find some nice backdrops to share those with you guys because I am going to try my hardest to share my favourite looks.
I also feel like I should mention here that my body is changing and I am happy with how I am at this point in time.
My weight is fluctuating but I am getting back into a healthy routine and I am inspired by my beautiful friends (such as Nicola of the former blog Too Many Cupcakes) and my plans to be married next year so the extra 5-10kg (who’s counting?) I put on after my big loss will be gone before I know it. Not that my health and my size should matter to you. And if it does…buzz off!
I’ve been quiet on the writing front because my life is going through a huge shift and my business is shooting off at a thousand km per second! I promise to be back on my feet and writing again my sweet friends! When I’m not working and I’m not stressing, I have been putting together
A few months ago I needed a creative outlet. I have been writing here at Closet Confessions for years and over that time my interests and what I love has certainly changed. I have honestly enjoyed writing and sharing my life here, and that isn’t going to change. But with life taking control,
