Inspired By: Sia's Chandelier featuring - Maddie Ziegler

Taking influence from one of our favourite singers and music videos, Eliana and I re-created Sia's Chandelier which features famous international 12yr old dancer Maddie Ziegler.

Special thanks to Indie Welsh of Life Prices Pharmacy for recreating the body art and makeup of Maddie Ziegler. I would also like to thank Pat O'Connor for giving us access to the perfect location.

Please watch the video below if you have not heard of Sia.

Amiee Miller - Life coaching, website photography

It was a pure pleasure working with Aimee creating photographs for her website, this mum of four is a total inspiration, I highly recommend her - she just oozes motivation!

Here is a wee bio about Aimee from her website. 

"My name is Aimee I am a Life Coach, fitness junkie, whole food enthusiast and mother to four amazing children aged 2-9. 
After having children women often need to regain the motivation to get back on track with nutrition, wellbeing and general life balance. I love supporting women to reclaim their energy and positivity for life.
Maybe it is a total life edit that you need or just help getting past one obstacle that has been impossible to overcome on your own.
I believe a happy mum is the core of a happy family. Its simple really....the happier and healthier mums are, the happier and healthier their children, partners and families become."

Vienda Maria

I recently met inspiring writer, and mentor Vienda Maria who I  had the pleasure of photographing on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon in Nelson. 
 

A little about Vienda as spoken from her heart...


"I teach women who want to do great things in the world, how to choose freedom in life and work. This isn’t about the fantasy — it’s about the beauty in the freedom to design our own reality.

We all have a story to tell. But instead of getting wrapped up in the story, what is truly breath-taking and inspiring is what we do as a result of our story. My story led me to have a profound fascination with freedom.

Growing up, all I ever wanted was freedom. Freedom to be, say, think, do, feel and choose. And so I spent my entire adult life dedicated to creating a life of freedom.

And as I have looked for freedom in my work, in my lifestyle, in my relationships, in myself, I have discovered one vital thing.

Freedom, true freedom, comes from within."

- Vienda Maria - as quoted from her 'About' page at her site

We started our shoot inside and then headed out side for the sunset, I was on a natural high photographing Vienda - her free spirit is contagious!
