We are very excited here at Meet Gertrude to be featured in the Ballarat Life Style Magazine, we just couldn't wait to share our first photo shoot experience.
What a morning it was! We had finished a function late at a beautiful wedding and we were running against the clock all morning to set up. We searched for the perfect location around Ballarat, we were very lucky to stumble across this beautiful stretch of park land at Pioneer Park, Wendouree.
The air was defiantly fresh, as it is this time of year in Ballarat, but that didn't deter us! We found a perfect spot in-between two beautiful tall trees, creating that real country feel. With beautiful blue sky and rolling hills, Gertrude looked right at home.
Our inspiration around Gertrude's styling was based on a rustic theme. We used beautiful old birdcages and a rustic ladder sourced from Ballarat Mill Markets, lovely rustic wooden boxes, made by a local talented man Nathan Johnstone and a selection of miss matched vases.
All we needed now was the talented Jade behind the lens, to really make the magic happen. She captured such beautiful images, we just couldn't wait to share. Here is a sneak preview of some of our favourites!
