Well, I am not a huge writer so this blog is mostly going to consist of images and not a lot of words (LIES LIES LIES LIES lol I wrote this before getting super emotional and reminiscent then to find that none of the images will ever upload so I gave up and now it is a long arse novel for you all to read haha), which I am sure you will all agree is much better than words anyway!
We started our journey to shootfest on Thursday morning, at 3am...yes 3am, why you say? Because we never ever learn that early morning flights are awful. The sunrise was pretty, the airport food was pretty rubbish but the flight was pretty good and nothing could really take away from the excitement of being on a plane ride and only 3 hours away from catching up with old friends and making new ones as well.
The drive to Moss Vale from Sydney airport was pretty beautiful, lots of valley's with lush green tree's and beautiful green fields that felt like they would go on forever. My kind of place. On our way we stopped at 7 eleven and ran into the lovely @coolicio, @aubrey, @ambra and @dollyd.
We all basically arrived at the house at the same time to find a magical house in the middle of stunning rolling fields which were misty from rain, it was like something out of twilight lol. It felt so good to be away from all the hustle and bustle of the city and take in the scenery.
We shot our first ever set with @coolicio and man on man, it is good...like really good....like really really really good. She is a posing queen and just has so much fun when she is modelling. And that butt and those eyes...I could go on for days about how much I love this lady!!! She kicked butt with this one and I cannot wait to show you all!!
We then got to shoot the ever so lovely @delilahjayne again. And man, it was good. There was a fireplace and these brown chairs that matched her beautiful white skin perfectly and the light streaming through the windows just made her glow! The set we shot kinda reminds me of a cold winters day, even though we are in the middle of summer, which I think is a complete and utter load of crap as it was 10 degrees that day...TEN DEGREES PEOPLE...if you know me, you will know how much I hate the cold and this was definitely no summers day I can tell you that much. But she pulled it off, she got her skin all over the crazy cold concrete and still looked so fucking good! Here are some shots of @exkyu and @coolicio shooting @aubrey and @dollyd

We had a few minutes spare so we headed into Bong Bong, fitting for us bahaha and we had a bit of a chuckle while we were there. We bought up lots of yummy foods to share with everyone for breakfast the next day and stopped by the bottle shop too on the way!!
When we got back we smashed sets out with a new girl to the site who is still working out a name, and man did she do well! At the end of the set I asked her if she had ever modeled before but she hadn't and I couldn't believe it. So much smiling in this set and she knew exactly how to move her body too. Once she has an account I will tag her in this but alas, until then she can be the mystery girl that will blow you all away!
And @coolicio and I worked out that we had the same undies on! Look at her butt!!!!!!! #buttspiration
Then we got to shoot the stunning @graceless who is like a pretzel of fun. She got herself into some epic poses and pulled of a STUNNING set which I think is definitely FP material. We had a great time hanging with her over the weekend too and chatted a fair bit about life and stuff. She is amazing and I cannot wait till we get to see her again and hopefully we get the opportunity to shoot with her again too.
And that was a wrap for Thursday shooting and onto the more social part of the shootfest. We headed out to this amazing little american diner called 'Bernies' and had a burger, a Budweiser and some mad chills with all the peeps. Then @arachnie and @valentine showed up and we all had a big chat over our burgers and chips while @coolicio shot a set with the dream team @exkyu and @countessa. They showed me some previews which look amazing!!! Cannot wait to see that set when it comes out, @coolicio looks like a beautiful golden goddess, so happy the sun came out for them for that set!
We had a couple of quiet drinks that night and headed to bed so we could have a big sleep and be ready for a day of shooting. Well some of that isn't true, I didn't get to bed till 1am and in no way was it quiet as I was involved and so was alcohol lol.
Friday we had a line up of some pretty amazing shoots. We shot with @haylonn first, which is a fucking sexy arse set full of sultry poses. She rocked the shoot, nailing all the directions I gave her so well and the lighting and setup in the corner we used was just SO SO SO SO SO pretty. I am so lucky to have been able to hang out with her throughout the rest of the shootfest too and cannot wait to hangout and shoot soon.
@_kettle was the next girl in line and this shoot was so fucking sexy. It was super fun to shoot with her again and man on man she has the cutest smile and greatest personality to match. She got all sexy on a wooden bench counter at the front of the house and it was awesome! She nailed every pose so well, was so glad we got to shoot with her again!
@erinys was shooting a set with @victory and I went and had a perve as I was shooting her next and hadn't actually met her yet! She had her next set with us which was amazing, she really knows how to shake her bum as seen in the video of her but in slow motion. Her set looks unreal, she is such a lovely lady and she absolutely nailed the set, taking direction so well and doing such a great job in front of the camera.
Then amazing woman @harvest rocked up who I JUST love to bits and was so glad we got to see her and hang out all weekend. We had the chance to actually shoot her this shootfest too which was so so so so so so amazing. She is a whirlwind, or laughter and love and I cannot express how amazing and connected this set is. She is such a beautiful soul and I feel like I may have known her in another life. Her set is amazing and I am not sure I have ever laughed so much while shooting before. She smashed it!!!
Now for the lovely @arachnie who we have shot once before but this time we got to do it solo. She is a BABE, such a fucking BABE! Not only do I like hanging out with her in real life, but man hanging out with her while shooting is such a priviledge. This set is so good, she got all over the kitchen counter and absolutely smashed this set with her epic butt and boobs all over the bench.
I then got my kit off and did a bit of a shoot with @trickett. All the girls helped me with posing, it was so much fun. I only modeled for a bout 20 min and my core was wretched. I definitely understand now what I put you girls through and I didn't even get naked haha!
We then went for a wander down the road with @harvest, @aubrey and @haylonn and watched the sun set over the fields. It was pretty magical. When we got back to the house the party had really started, the BBQ was going and the food and drink was flowing. We had such a good night, chatting to everyone and drinking and getting crazy with @arachnie, @captureofcthulhu and @coolicio.
After 3 hours sleep our alarms sounded for our sunrise shoot with @fatum. The LIGHT was amazing and she had set up such a cute little setting out the garden and she looked so pretty in the soft morning light. I am so glad we finally got to shoot her, I have been looking at her on SG for ages now and I feel the set we got is amazing. She took direction so well and completely rocked the shoot, looking sexy as hell and cute at the same time. Cannot wait to edit this one, but it might not be for a while as she already has a set in queue so I am afraid that you will have to wait for it!
@boysenberry then showed up and we did another outdoors set which she just glowed in. Her milky skin against the sun shining down through the clouds was something that is for sure. We also ran into a few little creatures, a little bee was hovering around collecting pollen while we shot in a flower bed, a lady bug landed on her booby too and it was pretty magical!
@valentine was my lucky last lady to shoot and man, was it good. She literally blew my socks off. She has the sweetest personality and it made it so much easier that we had been hanging out for the past day or so that when we actually shot it was pretty easy. She killed it and her set is going to be a jaw dropper and cannot wait to show everyone. I actually downloaded her set while she was there and the first shot loaded on my computer, I couldn't help but edit it, because often you don't get such a good photo from the first frame, and wow, let me tell you...This shot was amazing. I showed it to her and she started crying happy tears, and friends let me tell you that this was probably one of the most surrealist experiences. I have never seen someone cry when they look at their photos and it really was a touching experience. I am glad I got to be able to use my skills to make someone that happy, it is the reason that I do what I do and why I am so passionate about this site and all the people I have met from it.
Finally, I got my shit together, with no sleep and messy bed hair, I did my makeup and then got the beautiful @aubrey to do my eye liner flick (I suck at it lol) and then @coolicio shot a few pics of me in the bedroom. It was one of the most invigorating experiences getting in front of a camera. The shots I saw on the back of the camera looked absolutely amazing and I am so glad it was @coolicio who shot them. She is such a beautiful gal and I am so grateful for meeting her and for becoming her friend.
After that we all said our big goodbyes and we had to call it a day. I was pretty devastated but happy at the same time, as it meant we were going home and I would see my puppy!!!!!! Oh and get some much needed sleep as well haha.
Well, I hope I haven't forgotten anyone and if I have I am so sorry. It has been a while since the event and parts of it are already a bit hazy lol.
Have a great day today peoples, I will be listening to the Hottest 100, sipping on a beer and heading to a party to listen to the final 30.
Happy Hottest 100 Day peeps ^_^
