Mimi on Paul:

Paul and I met back stage at a fashion show and 10 years later we got married. It was the best day of our lives, until the day we had our daughter, Pearl. Life with our little family gets better and better everyday.


Paul on Mimi:

Mimi has a passionate and positive zest for life and living. She has a smile that lights up every darkroom. Mimi’s career in all things fashion has taken her all over the world as a creative for leading fashion brands, seamstressing for pop bands, working on fashion shows, working with fashion designers and top models. Mimi is a focused, driven, talented and accomplished person. Mimi’s skills as a stylist and creative producer means understanding what will look good and what will work for each photoshoot with an eye and attention to detail; creating a photoshoot that combines the client’s personality with the creative vision; outfits, accessories and propping in line with the season or story. Mimi brings the calm, the cool and the fun; nothing fazes her. As well as being a great professional, Mimi, is also a devoted mum to our daughter, Pearl, who makes our world complete.

Why do we photograph? Simply because we love it!
