Jana Topler working in studio with Australian fashion label MISTY SISTERS AUSTRALIA In Perth, WA 2017
What a beautiful day! Back in November, I was contacted by Krizia, she asked me to photographer her bridal shower that was held in North Perth at one of her bridesmaid's houses. From arriving at the front door, it was breathtaking, a beautiful sign with white balloons to great you. Walking through to the backyard where the pool had huge white balloons floating, a massive flower wall, champagne flowing, a crazing table that went on for days and to top it off everyone was in white, it was stunning!
This week I got to catch up with Kym, the owner and creator of Common Candle Co. Kym has launched some new products. Perfect timing with Christmas right around the corner! I still can't get over how amazing her candles smell (even when they aren't lit)
My good friend Angie who is the family photographer behind WhiteJasmin Photography who is based in Perth. She asked me if I could possibly photographer her new product that she offers with all of her photo sessions. This what we created in my little studio space in Applecross.
What a beautiful night filled with love, laughter, more food than you could even imagine + way to may tequila shots! Every time I snapped the camera people were smiling and having a great time! Carmela had also hired a stunning flower wall for the backdrop for a few pix!
This was all set up in Carmela's parent's backyard, it really has become a trend to have parties/ events at home! If you have a little creative spark you can really make a backyard look amazing! Plus it makes events more intermittent.
This month Izzy reached to see if I would be interested in a collaboration with her and Pandora.
Today I got invited to Tiisch cafe in Perth CBD, of course with camera in hand! Sarah (one of the owners) asked if I was able to take few snaps the yummy food that they have on offer. From on the go breaky bowls, lunch meals, coffee & cake!
So I thought I might share a few images and a video of my little studio space I am currently in, its located in Applecross, Western Australia.
I don't know what is but I am totally obsessed with film! I jumped onto eBay a few months ago bought 10 disposable film cameras. You know the ones where the camera and film are built into each other. You have to take the whole thing to the camera store to get it developed? yeahhh I am in love with them bad boys! Anyway! I came up with this crazy shoot idea, a pool party, trailer trash vibe.... (Thanks, Pinterest) I knew I want to work with Louisa straight away. The next thing on my list was the clothing. Ordering a cute AF swimsuit of ASOS and some lingerie from David Jones.
Jade is a very lucky girl! Her good friend Cassie from Bloss & Co. organized a surprise baby shower for Jade back in October of this year! It was all set up in Cassie's backyard. The set up really was breathtaking! ohh and the weather was amazing which always helps! Please see below the very talented people who put this whole event together!

What a work out! and I didn't even work out! This week I was asked by Ash to come and photographed her and the team at Xtend Barre in Osbourne Park. This puts a whole new spin on working out! Set in the beautiful open space studio with so much natural light and stunning floors it was hard to resist.
Ari reached out to me few weeks ago looking for some new portrait shots, she wanted something a little different, something with a bit of an edge. We decided to meet up in Wolf Lane in the Perth CBD. We hung out for about an hour, it was around 5pm so the light was soft, which is always nice to work with. This what we came up with!
This week I got the chance to work with a local clothing boutique Ivy and Jess who are located in Mount Hawthorn! Sarah (the owner) had also arranged for Elizabeth to be our model for the morning. We just hung out in the cute little back allies.
Back in late September I was lucky enough to photograph Ash's bridesmaids proposal at her home in Perth. This where I met Chrystal who created magic in Ash's back yard. She is the #GirlBoss behind Carnival Creations, an amazing picnic for Ash and her bridesmaids. After this shoot, Chrystal and I started talking and she said she was in love with my work and was wanting some new images of her kids for their new home. After a few messages over IG we set a date and a location, just off Ocean Reef rd.
I mentioned to Chrystal that I don't really like possy photo's, I love "in the moment" photos. So I basically got to hang out with kids for a few hours, going for walks, climbing old builds and picking flowers. All in all I think it turned out to be a pretty amazing shoot, plus we missed the rain that day!
Creating magic in mid-October, the day was so over a cast we worried it was going to rain! But we were lucky and it held off until after sunset. Catching up with Faith & Bella at my studio in Applecross for a quick boho vibin' shoot.
Faith had come up with the concept, the main reason for the shoot was to showcase Faith works as a makeup artist. We just hung out on the grounds around my studio space.
We also snuck in a little video time and made a quick vid! to watch click here.
Back in late September, I was asked to photograph Nez's 30th + 10 Birthday (you aren't allowed to say the F-word) She celebrated her birthday at the Raffles Hotel in Applecross in one of their private room. Nez really had thought of everything, a DJ, cakes, magician, a videographer and so much more! The theme was all white, this seems to be a very popular theme this year, but it never seems to disappoint. Everyone went above and beyond.
