Introducing - Shani Elysia Newman, Part One

August 28, 2013

This is the third collection of portraits of inspiring young women from my home town. 

Having small town roots does not affect how high your dreams can soar.

I can't remember the first time I met Shani. I always remember seeing her at local gigs back when we all wore an extensive amount of black eyeliner and were thrown together in sweaty overcrowded pubs.
Its been lovely to reconnect with Shani over the past few weeks and I've found we have more than just being metal lovers at heart in common. Like me, Shani is a hopeless romantic and loves to read the love letters of great men before she sleeps. Her favourite authors are Bronte & Austin. She dreams of living in Rome one day where she can spend her time writing and drawing. 
Shani currently lives with the love of her life whom she wants to explore the world with.

Here are her portraits ...
