It’s hard to believe that this event has grown from 14 people to over 30.

It’s always been a dream to organize and participate in a photoshoot. Now that dream has been realized 3 times.

Sunday was spent ‘Into the Wild’ at the ultra modern home of Robert Moore and Judith Mackin, tucked in to the side of Mount Pleasant.

As with every #SaintJohnCut event, the day was shared with make up artists, hair stylists, photographers and models. The BEST kind of collaboration, in my opinion.

The photos I took yesterday are far from professional… but hopefully give you a “behind the scenes” vibe.

The credits:


Hair was done by Adam Donnelly from Hairacy’s. He is a dear friend and my personal hair stylist. If you’ve ever told me you “like my hair down”, you can thank him for the ‘do.

He can be stalked on Twitter:


Make-up was done by Carrie McGrath and Taylor MacDougall. Carrie has been involved since the beginning and I am always so impressed with everything she does.

The Help!

This shoot could not have happened without the help of Gillian and Morgan. Gillian was instrumental from start to finish – picking up snacks for the hungry models to dragging bags and bags of shoes from Manchester.

Morgan wasn’t heard from all day – as he was holding lights and lugging sandbags for Mark Hemmings.

Thanks again!
