Capture My Style // Photoshoot Pt.1

I couldn’t be happier with the outcome, I wanted to be a blogger with a voice and only a voice but my wise mum made me realise that a voice needs a face – I love looking at other fashion bloggers personal style shoots, I didn’t think I could articulate my style exactly how I wanted but when you have the right people working with you, you can do that and more.
