Behind the scenes: Marie Claire and Georg Jensen’s OCRF campaign

25th September, 2017


When Marie Claire asked me to get involved with their campaign with Georg Jensen and the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) to raise awareness about ovarian cancer I knew immediately that I wanted to take part. It’s a cause that’s close to my heart as I have had family friends affected by ovarian cancer and I know the devastating effect it has on not only the person with the illness but also their families.

Now that I am a mother of two little girls it’s made me even more aware of this terrible disease and how it affects far too many women in this country and around the world. The shocking statistics surrounding ovarian cancer—such as the fact 1500 Australian women are diagnosed with the disease every year— made me want to do what I could to help build awareness and in turn hopefully raise some much needed funds for OCRF’s crucial research.

As part of the campaign Marie Claire shot myself with Sophia and Grace. I always love when they can join me on set as it makes the experience even more special. Both girls were really excited and a little curious about what was going on on the day and I’m sure they had as much fun as I did shooting together. It’s always nice to be able to work with people in the industry that I’ve worked with in the past and this time around it was with the photographer Hugh Stewart. Hugh shot my first magazine photoshoot with Sophia back in 2014 and it’s amazing to think how much Sophia has grown since then!

It was great to be given the opportunity to get behind this cause in such a major way and also to be part of the incredible line-up of women such as Rachael Finch, Alice McCall and Jessica Rowe who were also shot with their daughters for this campaign. I hope that we’ve all been able to raise the profile of ovarian cancer in this country and to help OCRF reach their target to develop an early detection test and ultimately a cure.

Behind the scenes shooting the Witchery White Shirt Campaign

18th April, 2017

The portrait I shot for the Witchery White Shirt Campaign

One woman dies every 10 hours from ovarian cancer and on average four women are diagnosed with the disease every day. When faced with these shocking statistics it’s crucial to raise awareness about ovarian cancer to not only make women more vigilant about monitoring their bodies for symptoms but also to help raise much needed funds for research to find an early detection test. This is why I felt privileged to be asked to take part in this year’s Witchery White Shirt Campaign. I have had friends and family who have been affected by ovarian cancer and it is a terrible disease that causes pain and suffering not only for the person who is affected but also for their family and loved ones. It’s my hope that by taking part I will be able to help bring this issue into the spotlight.

I recently shot the campaign at Sydney’s La Porte Space wearing a beautiful piece from the collection which was quite feminine and sophisticated. It was great to be able spend the day with the other women taking part and see the campaign coming to life.

Want to get involved? Along with wearing a white shirt on White Shirt Day on May 8 you can also take part by sharing an image of yourself on social media in a white shirt and finishing the sentence “I wear a white shirt because…” with a message that encourages support. Help get the conversation started! I wear a white shirt because I’m empowered to raise awareness about ovarian cancer… For me it is a powerful symbol of my commitment to getting closer to finding a cure for this terrible disease. This is one instance where fashion can truly make a difference.

The White Shirt Campaign will run from April 6 – May 8. You can purchase your Witchery white shirt here. For every white shirt sold during the campaign Witchery will donate everything except GST to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. Head to for more info.
