I never thought I’d see myself in a stylish magazine but when one of the feature writers, Samantha van Egmond approached me to do a piece for Country Style Magazine I couldn’t turn down the opportunity.
The photographer Marnie Hawson came to our place in terribly bright & challenging conditions and requested the linens. Bonnie had a tantrum and had to be bribed into the most neutral clothes we had as I hadn’t prepared linens and the fluro pink barbie shirt she wanted to wear was clearly not going to work!
The shade of our avocado and lychee trees were the only place the light was workable on a stinking hot day in October 2018. We’d made the studio all pretty for the occasion which in hindsight was probably a mistake, as Marnie taught me that the best pics are natural, un-staged snaps.
I was shocked when Nick agreed to don a linen shirt and walk with me under our pecan trees for the shoot. Apparently he didn’t think he had a choice!
Seeing the story now makes me feel quite giddy and relieved as it’s beautifully written and sums us and the Sow ‘n Sow story up perfectly. Thank you ever so much Country Style Magazine, Samantha van Egmond and Marnie Hawson for inviting us into your beautiful pages.
Here are some of the photographs which adorned the magazine’s pages. It is lovely to hear from customers who discovered us via these pages, for that I’m so very grateful 🙂
