Petra Collins & Glassons

Now this post is totally and utterly overdue, but lets take a moment out of today to discuss mega babe and all round awesome photographer, Petra Collins and her awesome collaboration with New Zealand brand, Glassons.
If you haven't heard of Petra before, she's basically this totally awesome 20 year old photographer from Canada who is a contributor to Rookie Mag and awesome gal pal of Tavi Gevinson.

Not only did Petra pose for these amazing photos, but she also directed them! I mean, how much more awesome can you get, really? As someone who will run away as soon as someone, other than myself, brings out a camera, doing something like this sounds like a very daunting process. I imagine you would have to trust the person on the other end pushing the shutter button for you immensely. 

I absolutely adore this photo shoot for the summer holiday vibes it emanates. It reminds me of slow, warm days in the country, late evening walks during the sunset, local fairs, eating excessive amounts of ice cream and icy things and basically everything I do during the warmer months. I feel that it's very nostalgic and not just for me, but for everyone. I think the only thing that I haven't done is sit on a kitschy hotel balcony in colour co-ordinating clothes, although, that's definitely on my bucket list because it looks like something straight out of the 50s. 

The photos in this post are curated from the Glassons website
