GET TO KNOW HANNAH BLOG

Hannah quite literally brought the sunshine to our shoot. We instantly were in awe of her adorable banter, warm personality and capability to be unapologetically herself. Her big, natural curls bounced around the studio as she effortlessly jumped pose to pose in our linen sets & separates.
 

The story of slate
