My very favourite thing about Instagram is that individuals have just as much of a voice as big brands, if not more. It’s a platform that is fair in its distribution of exposure and equates engagement as its strongest currency. And I engage much more with real women living real lives above fantasy starlets faking it all. Also, I have huge admiration for women taking their social media platforms and using them to portray a positive and inclusive message.

So I was super thrilled to be asked by Rock n Roll Bride to shoot Natalie Lee aka Style Me Sunday, the body positive activist and influencer with almost 60k IG followers. Sadly, not many wedding magazines will put a girl in her 30s or a girl with an afro on the cover so it was incredible to see this shoot when it hit the racks. Thank goodness there are women like Natalie and Kat being active on social media. The shoot used simple pastel backgrounds, forward thinking styling and was a helluva lot of fun to work on.

When I was younger I never saw women like me on the covers of magazines …
