Did you know that you can receive messages on Instagram? I didnt, until the lovely Mills from LA got in touch! 
This shows how powerful social media can be, because Mills had seen my work through instagram and got in touch as she was travelling to London and wanted to arrange a lifestyle shoot for her new blog The Daily Mills.

Mills was visiting London to support her friends in the London Surf Film Festival and also to visit family, being half British herself,
On Sunday 25th October we met outside Notting Hill Gate tube station where we went for a casual stroll through the beautiful streets and mews of Notting Hill. We stopped to see the pretty pastel town houses, quaint flower stands and also did a spot of window shopping down colourful Portobello Road.
After shooting in Nottinghill we stopped for coffee and breakfast where we chatted about her new blog and bounced small busniess ideas around getting inspiration from each other. It really is lovely to talk to like minded people with a passion to succeed and offer something that has a real meaning. 
After our short stop, we headed down to the South Bank to get some gorgeous and iconic shots along Westminster Bridge and the river Thames.
The weather was GLORIOUS, and both Mills and her friend/stylist Alexa were absolutely lovely. 
A huge thank you to Mills for being amazing in front of the camera; such a pleasure to meet you. Here’s to new friends!
