A shoot to remember!

There is more to EMU than just their sheepskin boots. EMU is a genuine Australian company who pride themselves of their ability continuously design & create footwear that is durable, comfortable and of course stylish. Whether it’s the beach, the bush, the snow or the classic gravel lined roads in the country, EMU appreciates that Australians live for the outdoors. The magic of the EMU brand lies in the love & respect they have for this beautiful country.

For those of you who don’t know, EMU is based in Torquay, Victoria. Torquay is about an hour out of Melbourne and it’s known to be one of the best surf spots in VIC. Working so closely with the EMU team means that I’m lucky enough to travel down the coast & hang out as they bring their designs to life. It is incredible to watch them all work together to ensure that every product stays true to EMU’s five brand pillars;

  • Natural
  • Innovative
  • Comfortable
  • Enduring
  • Boundless

It’s so funny how similar their brand pillars are to my actual lifestyle! The new range is full of boots that will have you active & outdoors all winter long. From ankle to knee length, they’ll have you sorted.

Whoever follows me on social media will know by now that while I love to dress up in dresses & heels, what I love even more is striping off my make up, throwing on some shorts & getting outdoors and active! No matter what the time of year – I’m out there doing something crazy with Josh, Isla and the family. The EMU ranges, season after season, always allow me to be as active & energetic as I want to be, while staying super comfy.

Their next & most recent range has loads of winter woolies for your feet! To celebrate their love for Australia and the new Fall/Winter range – the EMU team and I shot one of my favourite shoots to date. We had guests in the studio this time round. Not your average guests, but iconic Aussie animals! I spent the day goofing around with a wombat, a few giant snakes, a lizard & a cute little Kookaburra. Check out the video below! 

From a very early morning start, my energy levels kicked in as soon as I met these creatures. It was an entertaining day in the office… that’s for sure. But the best fun - scroll to the bottom to see some behind the scenes shot. 

Working as an ambassador for EMU over the years has been an epic experience & it’s lead me down such an adventurous path. From Sydney to Cradle Mountain & of course Torquay, I always have a ball running a muck with the team!   

As always the new range is high quality, functional and stylish. Tick tick tick! So peeps, head to EMU’s website to have a look at their entire range & follow the brands adventures on Instagram, @emuaustralia to stay in the loop!
