Earlier this year I was involved in a shoot for a small boutique shop called Ella Anne. My friend Marina and I put everything together, scouted out the location, and I took the pictures (my first time ever doing fashion photography!).
Jess & Tiff were our amazing models. Maria De Vos did the hair and makeup and Marina did the styling and art directing. A huge thanks also goes to Tim who helped out with lighting.
I've put off sharing these pictures for a while as they were only ready in the winter months and it seemed weird blogging about short shorts and dresses, but now that we're pretty much into full blown summer it seems more appropriate.
I have to say I have newfound respect for fashion photographers, it's really not as easy as it looks! The light faded so quickly and the whole thing was pretty stressful but I learnt so much in the process and will do everything a lot different next time.
Have you checked out Mr P's nice fashion blog 'In the loop'? No? well its a flipping rad blog and you can see why Mr P always has high fashion items (at nice prices). I'm a big fan! so I feel very very flattered to be part of an interview over there today! : ) Thank you so very much to Amber and the other bloggers at 'In the loop'. You always have flipping cool posts.
Sorry for the radio silence over here this week. I've been editing non stop trying to get work out before we go on holiday this friday. We're going on a little Cape escape, starting with a hike and camp out on the Table Mountain reserve with a few other bloggers this weekend. I'm so excited for a change of scenery and a break from the two glossy screens that I spend all my time with.
We've been working hard, and I have so many nice shoots I still want to share with you guys. In the past few weeks we've been doing a lot of different work, which has been a wonderful break from shooting weddings. Don't get me wrong, I love weddings but it's so nice mixing it up with other types of shoots too. Here are a few sneak peeks of our latest work:
A maternity shoot that looks nothing like a maternity shoot.
A fashion look book for a local boutique.
and a really fun, no cheese, couple shoot.
Now I just have to get around to actually blogging it all!
