I WOKE UP LIKE THIS


Welcome to ‘I woke up like this’, a photography series. 

This project was started on a cold, rainy Sunday with the intent to capture people in a place that is normally off limits to those who aren’t your closest friends or family. 

Our bedrooms play such varied roles based on our living circumstances from being in a shared house, living with your partner to living alone. It’s an intimate space. It’s where we are our most vulnerable, where we hide from the world and recharge, where we dream, eat, Netflix and ‘chill’. 

It’s a place to shut out the rest of the world, or to scroll miles with our thumbs through social media before we go to sleep and as soon as we wake up. Our habits also speak volumes on who we are and all of our unique and defining quirks.

My bed and my space is a curated comfort cuddle puddle, and I love it. This side passion project is super fun to create and I work on it whenever I can find some spare time.
