I’m not averse to taking it all off in the name of gardening, especially when it comes to World Naked Gardening Day 2019.
To kick off the day, I’m sharing some special images with you, that I shot with the wonderful Caroline Horne, a friend and photographer who has a tasteful eye – much needed for something as saucy as this!
We shot at Thea Lily Loves in Suffolk, who was very accommodating and had a lovely garden in which we could create the perfect Insta-shot. She was also our props manager, and features in a couple of the outtake photos!
Oh, in case you’re wondering, it wasn’t thatttt cold! Strategically, World Naked Gardening Day 2019 takes place in the mild month of May, so I was quite happy temperature-wise. I did however cover up between shots, so that I didn’t shock the neighbours…
Flick through the slideshow below, enjoy the development of my “dad bod”, and let me know what you thought of our fun shoot in the comments section!
