I haven’t posted for ages! I do seem to procrastinate on what images to post as I have thousands….
Thinking through on what would be a good idea for a post is to tell you about my Sisters at the wonderful Sistersnog group of inspiring business women. We actually all met in September at Brigade Bar and Kitchen for a “Wonderful One Off” and the theme was “The Butterfly Effect”.
Hela had put together a butterfly frame which was such fun to use for the individual portraits. I am featuring some fabulous women – to start with I want to mention Jacqui Larsson who is featured in the central block of images below. What a talented woman she is! I just LOVE her jewellery and she is helping me put together a plan of what to do with my mother’s engagement ring. I also have an eye on the Siena pendant that she posted on Instagram and forwarded the link to my husband as I thought that would make a good Christmas present..
Jacqui and I had a 1:1 at the Allbright in Maddox Street, London and it was great to get to know more about her business and how she started. Such a fascinating story!
In one of the images Jacqui is with Silvia from Pink SEO. And it is fabulous story of how these women met and what a difference Silvia’s help with the SEO has made to Jacqui’s business.
I love going out to restaurants but it can be a bit of a double edged sword as I am quite fussy as I have an HND in the hotel and catering management I am a HOTCAT!So for me going to Brigade it was an absolute delight! Not only was the food amazing and service sublime but the whole meal experience was just fabulous!
As part of the shoot of the event I took images of the people in the kitchen at work and also of the food! I love taking pics of food! Don’t you?
The Brigade Bar + Kitchen was opened in September 2011 by Chef Founder Simon Boyle (wearing a Miss Ballooniverse creation) at London Bridge. It has evolved over the years to become what it is today – a warm and personal dining venue focused on wood-fired dishes, made using modern techniques and recipes, using some of the country’s best suppliers.
The restaurant is built with a social purpose in mind, which is why they offer training opportunities to vulnerable people or those who have fallen on hard times, together with the beyond food foundation.
By eating and drinking at Brigade you can make a real difference to someone’s life! So if you are thinking of a new place to go I can certainly recommend!
There was so many little stories from the images I took and it was really hard to narrow down my favourite ones because everyone was so joyful and full of life and glad to be out!
The next wonderful one off is going to be on fire the 12th of November and it is open to non-members to book to have a small glimpse of what being a Sister is like.
I am in the midst of my nursery photography season with my business Little Planet Photos at the moment so unfortunately I won’t be able to attend and I am disappointed as I was so looking forward to seeing everybody again but I’m sure it’s going to be a fabulous event!
