It was one of those days where everything just fell into place. The weather was kind to us at the beginning of Melbourne's spring, and we caught an incredible golden hour on the cliffs of Half Moon Bay.

Photography forces us to be at mercy of the elements. When shooting on location you never have complete control, and being new to photography, I have struggled to entirely let go of what I cannot predict.

This shoot reminded me of how freaking exciting it is that each shoot may roll out completely different to what you planned, bringing with it some beautifully unpredicted, uncontrolled moments. Which are usually the best ones!

Below are some of these moments starring my latest muse, the gorgeous bronzed babe, Amber Auffray.
