So I got a very happy surprise on Sunday when my uncle presented me with this canon SLR for no reason whatsoever apart from the fact that we both share a love for photography. I am literally so over the moon as I thought I'd never be able to afford to buy myself an SLR camera. It came at the right time too as I'd just finished making my first plus size dress and wanted to take pictures of me "modelling" it.
So I asked my friend Kirsi if she would be my photographer for the day and she willingly agreed.
I'm not a 100% pleased with the dress I made, only because I know I can do so much better. But for a first try at plus size, and I made it with no pattern too, I guess it's not too bad.
We went to a local stately home and gardens here in north London and luckily the weather wasn't so bad.
I also got to wear my new hat, or in this case just throw it up in the air!
We also had a little picnic and played around with my new camera.
We found it very hilarious.
We found feathers and messed around with the focus.
We had such a fun afternoon, and I'm really happy with the pictures. I still need a little practice getting used to the camera but it will only continue to be a fun journey!
What I'm wearing:
Dress - Handmade by me
Cardigan - Primark
Hat - M&S
