Behind the scenes at the Vintage Boutique Shoot!

I was a styling assistant yesterday for boutique owner, Lydia Jones. The brief was to create three different looks under the titles A Modern Love Story, Go Wild in the Country and Modern Enchantment for her online boutique. So in overall we did three photo-shoots in one day.
I worked with the same team from the Cliff shoot. Bella Kotak photographing, Lydia Pankhurst doing the make-up and model Megan Waters and her friend Kelsey Birchmore.
The clothing was absolutely beautiful and it was so lovely working with such unique items.
I loved Lydia's studio, I aim to have something very similar one day!
I think this was one the most amusing endings to a shoot. Whilst taking the last few photographs for the bridal shoot an actual wedding party turned up to also use the same location. I love this photo of Megan as it actually looks like she is the bride!
Lydia really does do a fantastic job at the make-up comparing the two girls before they got their make-up done makes them look completely different. Megan told us that when Lydia did her make-up before for the Cliff shoot she managed to keep it on for a whole three days because she loved it so much.
It was only when we were packing up to go into the car that we actually realised there was too many of us...good thing models are tiny!
Overall we had a great day despite being very tired and cold towards the end. The shoot took a total of 12 hours but it was defiantly worth it! Final edits up soon!

A grunge, fetish shoot...

Yes you heard me right! Naomi has asked me to help her with a shoot next week which is loosely based on the images above. So I'm off to London tomorrow to style some scantily clad guys and girlies! This is defiantly not something I have done before but I think will defiantly add something different to my portfolio! Wish me luck...I have garters, hold-ups and barely-there tops at the ready!

Corinne Day

I read today that Corinne Day had sadly passed away yesterday. I therefore felt it was appropriate that we remembered some of her work. She was probably most famous for taking the first modelling photographs of her friend Kate Moss who quickly rose to fame after the publish of them. Her grunge type appeal was defiantly one that dictated the fashion movement in the 90's. Hopefully this is just a rumour, but if not, Corinne Day - may you be remembered for changing the face of fashion!

Photographs from The Cliff Shoot!

I've been meaning to share with you the final photographs from the Cliff shoot we did last week! Bella (the photographer) did a fantastic job with the editing! I really love the three Indian princesses on the rocks! I think the fabric idea I originally had works really well, and actually looks as though she is wearing a dress! The wonders a piece of material and some pins can do.
Thank you so much to Bella, Lydia and Megan for making this happen!

Photographs from The Pony Shoot!

I've got back the photographs and I am actually ecstatic about these! My computer has been hating me recently so it was taking so long to download them but I could see the thumbnails that I very nearly fainted from anticipation! Anyway I think you can probably see why! One criticism I have on myself is some of the pinning is showing so this is something I really need to improve on.

A huge big thank you to the amazing photographer
Lotte Simons, the beautiful model Cyan Cheung and the stunning make-up by Lucy Parker. Hope you like x
