Where is your favourite place to escape to for downtime and why?
My favourite place to escape is anywhere where it is warm and there is a beach. I am based in Melbourne so I love to have a quick get away to Sorrento, however, I try to get to Byron Bay as much as I can. I always feel so relaxed and happy when I am at the beach.
Ms Chinoiserie Says: The beach is a special spot for me too – it’s my place for relaxation!
About White Chilli Photography: Hi, I’m Laima! For me, photographing weddings is about the little moments … and of course the big ones. It’s capturing the light of the day, the faces, gestures, those candid smiles … a tear. It might be the detail of a flower, a nervous glance, a footprint or the beading on a dress… nothing beats it!
