I'm Miss May (a nickname given to me by my dear friend). And the nickname stuck, on my social media.
Am married to the love of my life, my best friend, and also real life (reluctant) Instagram husband, Leon. Not to worry, I will always be called Miss May. Together, we are proud parents to our little kitty cat, Louis. We live in a townhouse in Surry Hills, Sydney.
A designer + illustrator by trade, I work from home, where I have my studio space to play with. I create cute and colourful prints for my online store, also called Hello Miss May as a place to express myself.
Thank you for popping by my website. I really appreciate all the love and support. Thank you from my heart.
Have a nice day all!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What do you shoot with?
Canon EOS 6D and my mobile phone.
What are your thoughts behind a shoot?
It depends, on my train of thoughts. I usually draw my fun ideas out on my sketchbook. It could be 3 ideas to work with, or a dozen concepts. I love shooting at home, especially doing flatlays in bed. For the outdoors, when the weather is right, I will head outside with my Instagram husband to bring those images to life.
When I work closely with clients, I make sure that I fulfil the brief that was given to me. This includes, a moodboard of what they love about my work and the theme that the campaign is going for.
What do you edit with?
Lightroom is my absolute favourite. It is absolutely life changing, for anyone who loves photography. It’s the ability to create a specific colour theme and mood. If Mextures is an app filter I love, to create a vintage 70s and 80s finish to an image.
What is Instagram for you?
Instagram has been a great place for me to create and be myself. Here, I’ve discovered my passion for flatlays and travel. My flatlays are shot everywhere, from my bedroom, to the kitchen, the beach and at cafes. I love travelling, and explore what was unknown to me. I gotta see it, to believe it.
What are your favourite places to travel?
My favourite so far, has got to be London, Rome and El Nido in The Philippines. These places are ever inspiring for me. The European cities are so far to get to, coming from Sydney, Australia. I feel so excited, just soaking up the atmosphere, of centuries old building and worn out cobblestones. El Nido is another dream come true, the islands felt unreal. The Filipinos are so generous and warm, we felt so welcomed and at home.
This year, I want to spend more time with my kitty cat, and also explore in the realm of video editing and image manipulation. It’s a challenge for me and I’m excited to see what I will be creating in the near future!
