Tell us a bit about it – where, when, the idea behind it, etc…
We shot down by the Brighton bathing boxes on the beach in Melbourne. Rocky thought this would be a good place because it reminded us of New Zealand (we are both Kiwis!). NZ has a lot of beautiful beaches.
Are there any other funny anecdotes you can share about this shoot?
We both didn’t think to check the weather, it was 35 degrees and neither of us bought water. Rocky even brought a jumper thinking it was going to get cold.
When do you feel sexy and why?
When I’m at work dancing on the stage.
What is your best asset? Physically and otherwise.
I think my brain is my best asset. I’ve also been told my smile and legs.
