BEST OF 2012 + GIVEAWAY WINNER

I know this is late as ever, but 2012 was a good year and deserves adequate hommage in the form of a super-long blogpost (which took disproportionately long to construct). And I've put the winner of the giveaway at the very bottom so that at least someone is encouraged to read the post=) So, dear wildcats, here's my year in photos, I hope you enjoy them

At 00:01 on January 1st 2012. Look at us happy chickens.

From the first shoot of the year.

Confused-looking Cruella Deville

Newly ombre-dyed hair

College dinner + pink hair strands

Possibly the coldest shoot of the year

Shooting for the Cambridge Faces exhibition

Outtakes from Cambridge Faces + at the exhibition (wearing dress by Rare, Topshop jewelry)

Notes on my window from my loverboi

Some of my favourites from shoots I did early in the year

Champagne breakfast in Prague

Law dinner with Jack (Vero Moda dress, Topshop jewelry)

Wondering around Manchester

Manchester Fashion Week 2012

More photoshoots

Drenched from a champagne shower after my last exam (bizarre Cambridge tradition) + getting ready to celebrate


Cambridge balls and post-exam festivities

And straight into summer!

North of England adventures

Filling the long summer days...

Shooting with two sisters

Czech adventures

Locks of love in Prague

Making new friends in Germany

Lying around in fields outside Manchester

Our home studio when we were shooting this.

Shooting a beautiful wedding in the summer

My first days in the FrenchVille

Learning to fly

Buildings look like toys from my little toy plane...

Momma visiting me in the little FrenchVille (it was so lovely I don't even care about the nutty look on my face)

First shoot in France

My two favourite boys=)

The Telegraph internship

Being a geek...

Futuroscope near my FrenchVille.

Christmas at home in Prague with my momma

Together again just in time for the new year!
And that is the not-so-brief summary of my year. I apologise if you find some of this a bit soppy and romantic, but the truth is Jack and I more or less defined each others' year and I wouldn't have it any other way. 2012 was beautiful because of him and all our adventures, of which I could include a mere fraction for fear of boring you to death. 

I'd also like to take this moment to say thank you to everyone for their support: friends, family and other wildcat readers alike. As much as I love photography and fashion and blogging, your encouragement is the reason I've kept working on all of that and the reason I'll be working harder on it this year! So thank you thank you thank you


And finally...
The WINNER of the leather bag GIVEAWAY is MARIANA RAPOSO, congratulations girl! She should be enjoying her winnings very soon=)

This is such a lovely post; filled with absolutely stunning photographs (particularly the one taken in the river - Cam, perhaps? - of the bridges and boats) and such sweet (definitely not soppy) sentiments!

Best Wishes,

Tara
