WHO: LYDIA ARNOLD
This beauty right here is the one behind the lens capturing just as much beauty!
WHAT: Design & Visual Arts Degree in Photography/ Photographer/ Most genuine person I’ve met.
WHEN: Last year on a photoshoot for A La Robe (Lydia shot all the photos in our home page slider).
See, that’s our cupcake up there^
WHERE: Auckland, NZ & Soon to explode across the world. She’s teamed up with her older sister (super talented family!) Kate, so make sure to check out http://katerobinsonphotography.com/ to follow these two sisters on an epic journey of amazing beauty.
WHY: After the first time of meeting Lydia and working with her last year, she decided that she would devote her time and services to me to do a ‘Miss Piggy’s Cakes’ shoot (you can read about it here). I didn’t know what to do or what to say, “thank you” seemed so trivial especially considering her talents, but that is all I could do at the time. She sees the world in a way you wouldn’t until she shows you with her work. Perhaps that is why I could never imagine her angry – she sees beauty in everything and sometimes a single photo can take your breath away – I mean literally, just look at this shot:
The timing to get the drops of water, that feather about to hit the water, the reflection of that oar, the still water and the ripples – that’s not luck people, that’s talent! I don’t know much about photography, but I love collecting photos especially when they come with a ‘feeling’ like this one.
Tell me how many people you meet for the first time, that would offer you something like Lydia offered me that day? “Not many, if any” – Thank you Scribe (Try get that song unstuck from your head!)
So here’s a quick look at some of her work which I stole from http://lydiaarnold.blogspot.co.nz/
That’s just a tiny little ‘dot’ of her work, check out more of Lydia and her sister Kate ♥
