Kiara and I had some banter on Instagram and one day had the idea that we could do a very casual shoot one weekday afternoon when we were both free. I had a simple idea of a story of just being “Home Alone”. Kiara sent me some pics of her old apartment in Surry Hills and thought it was perfect for us as it really was being Home Alone.
With help from a friend who is a Hair and Makeup artist, we spent a few hours doing what girls do, wake up late, have a shower and some Coco Pops for breakfast at 4pm. Then into some clothes to spend the night in the kitchen, painting her nails, having a drink and a dance, then time to crash out on the kitchen table..
This to me is as honest and raw as photo stories get. The surroundings and the activities captured really create a nice story as all of my projects do.
