Legs eleven

The Autumn issue is out at Easter and in keeping with our theme of 'new beginnings' there are a few changes – a bit of a design refresh and a new textured cover stock (it was so fun poring over paper samples and choosing the perfect one!) Our cover artist this time is Angela Keoghan – about whom I cannot say enough wonderful things – go and check out her latest work.

Number 11 is bursting at the seams with great content from the likes of Olivia Coote (who created a sweet housewarming gift tutorial), Martha Goes Green (who overcame the difficulties of being in different countries to put together their set of recipes for a sweet baby shower), Sonya Nagels (who photographed and interviewed recent returnees for Homecomings and an amazing converted hotel in Raglan as well as contributing more sweet illustrations). Joanna Davies researched what it takes to turn your hobby into a business, Ike Levick 
interviewed Pia Jane Bijkerk, Jenn Hadley Photographed Olivia Neveu of Lucille, Kate van der Drift snapped Kelly O'Shea & co from Glue Gallery, we visited Julia Atkinson of Studio Home at her new pad in Auckland and we compiled the first in our new series of cheat-sheets on promotion and marketing.

Contributor series: Jenn Hadley

Jenn Hadley is a Wellington-based photographer and graphic designer with a passion for all things photo-related, and we're lucky enough to have her working with us for the first time on issue 11.

After studying photography at Unitec, she headed south to Nelson and worked with the good folk at Craig Potton Publishing. Her OE back to her homeland, England, saw her working on travel guides at Penguin Books. 
Jenn (seriously) started her photography business at the end of 2011 upon her return to Wellington. She has a particular affinity for portraiture, fashion and weddings – if there are people involved and the chance to snap a great moment she'll be there with camera in hand!
Jenn also loves a good op-shop hunt to find more gems to add to her royal celebratory tea cup and souvenir spoon collections.

That's Jenn at the top, and check out some of her portrait & wedding work below (the last two shots are a preview of the shoot she did for issue 11) :
