Morning Love

Often when having our photograph taken, we like to have some guidance and a little gentle posing advice.  But, when there is no interaction or directing from a photographer allowing a couple to explore and discover each other, that's often when the magic unfolds.

Talented photographer, Julie Cat, recently explored this technique at the Loom Workshop and shares her story with Coco Lane today.

From Julie: Morning is the story of a couple who wake early with the sun. Spend a couple moments together snuggling in bed before the day begins. As they begin to get ready for the day, they are still present with each other sharing gentle touches and chatting quietly.

These images were taken at the Loom Workshop, hosted by Ginny Au.  Loom is a technique of capturing images of people in an authentic way without coaching or interacting with them. This technique allows couples to interact with each other and to find their natural routines.

My background is as a wedding & lifestyle photographer, shooting both digital and film to create authentic, soft and natural fine art photographs. Working primarily with natural light to give my work a beautiful, light and airy touch infused with soft tones. 

I have always appreciated and valued the simple things in life and finding the interesting in the ordinary.  Coco Lane was founded as I wanted to create something that is about an experience, the slower pace of life, cosiness and candlelight, cuddling up on the sofa with loved ones, being with the people you love, sharing food with close friends, a feeling of home, nurturing a chosen career, wanderlust travels, savouring the small moments in everyday life and just being you and enjoying a cup of tea.

I'm excited to bring you stories that promote all those moments in life that give us value and meaning; inspiring  us to live beautifully.

"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life.  If you are interested in something, no matter what it is. Go at it full speed.  Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all become passionate about it.  Lukewarm is no good" - Roald Dahl
