Jewellery Collection photoshoot
A few weeks ago I teamed up with two of my very close friends Actress (and Model for the day) Catriona McNicoll - you might have seen her recently on the BBC's mystery drama 'Ordeal by Innocence' - and fantastic photographer, Rhona Henderson to create some 'in action' shots of my jewellery being worn, lived in and adored. It was great to work so closely with people who I've known for such a long time and I think we got some great shots from it!
