I was honoured to have the opportunity to do a bit more photography work for the supremely talented Big Little. I always love the opportunity to photograph things that I love but I have to say I have an especially soft spot for these lovely items. Firstly they are often made from beautiful recycled wool blankets, and in the blustery South Island winter there is nothing like wool, and secondly they are so beautifully made. As the mother of a rather dapper 9 year old son I find that it is really difficult to find items that fit him, suit the weather, AND conform to his unique sense of style (and flare for adventure). So many boy clothes seem to be little more than heavily branded, and boring, small versions of your average university wardrobe. Big Little gets boys JUST right.
The focus isn't only boy clothes, thankfully, ad Clementine once again had the chance to do a bit of modeling woolly goodness. She is wearing a Big Little vest from images I took last season but also donning two new items. She adores her pixie hat (wears it EVERYWHERE) and with the Antarctic breezes blowing in off the harbour she doesn't even get out of bed without her slippers.
In addition to garments I photographed a new item as well - beautiful felt and embroidered ipad/tablet covers. The simple product images are yet to come but as we were all headed to the beach and we almost always have a tablet it seemed to make sense to give them a whirl as well! They are so cozy. While I love the convenience of tablets I am not a huge fan of the idea of a portable screen (I am already too attached to my phone!) . That said a cozy, woolly, exterior makes it seem a little less cold, no?
Any any opportunity to get my sweet 11 year old , Little Bird, in front of my lens is a win.
So whether you are in the Northern Hemisphere or the Southern - put on your woolens , or your sunblock, and head outside! xo
