Model: Julia Sinclair

Having taken time off from personal photography and blogging for the past 9 months has left me in a somewhat uninspired place. My portfolio looks stale to me - the photos are either old or impersonal. I'm slowly dipping my toes into the creative pool again, testing the waters, seeing if I can remember how to swim. This shot is a result of that - one lovely Cambridge afternoon, I grabbed Julia and Jack and we went for a wonder with the camera. This shot doesn't go with the rest of the shoot in the slightest, but for some reason, I love it.

Just over a week ago, I got the chance to shoot the launch event for Bethnals, a startup denim brand, and got a pair of their Pete Skinnies in return. The brand produces beautiful, high-quality unisex denim, which has quintessential London written all over it.

I have somewhat annoyingly-shaped legs and always have trouble finding jeans that fit nicely, so when Mel, the brand's designer, told me the sample pieces were probably my size and that I should grab a pair before I leave, I couldn't help but be a little sceptical. I actually changed into them in a store on my way home to quell my curiosity and - lo and behold - they fit perfectly. And were so comfortable. And looked awesome. And - just - WHAT??? The minute we got home, I made Jack try them on to put the whole unisex thing to the test - another perfect fit. They looked completely different on him, but equally awesome. By now I felt like one of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and had to be restrained from running out onto the street and making random passersby try the jeans on.

My point is - Bethnals are great. If you want to find out more, check out their website and their Kickstarter page - and if you like what you see, then pledge!!!
