I booked a vintage photo shoot a while back and hadn’t really thought anymore about it until all of a sudden the date had arrived. I thought it would be good to get some pictures for the blog / business cards etc. If honest I hadn’t really set out with a special goal just a hope that there maybe at least one photo I would look good in.
All I needed to do was rock up with 4 outfits. This was my first task – only 4? Once that was sorted I was asked to wear no make up or product in my hair. Being someone with very curly hair to say this was far from ideal wouldn’t be covering it! Anyway I made my way to Belgravia Studios in London in the hope that they could transform me into a vintage movie star. And by George I think they did!
I had my make up done by a lady who made my skin shine and my hair was styled by Dorota who was a talented enough lady to cope with the fact I had no idea how I wanted it. I was so pleased with what she came up with and now have her number in case I get any invites to some fab Christmas partys (not hinting at all!) If only I could have her do my hair everyday.
The photo shoot was fun and the photographer was very patient with me. I was even more surprised that she managed to get some good ones of me. I looked like a movie star and at times I even felt like one.
I recommend anyone to have a go.
I worked with a great editor who’s blunt comments I really respected and so with all these people on board I hope you will agree that the pictures were worth the afternoon even if the result was a little more more money spent than planned – but I guess that’s what beans on toast are for .
Let me know what you think. I still can’t get over that they are of me! x
