This is my personal favourite photo from a recent shoot for Debbie Leno, a local hair and makeup artist. Our model for the day, despite never having modelled before, was Amy. I think she did a wonderful job and we had a lot of fun working on different looks.
Having worked with Miriam King on a recent portrait shoot she asked me if I would like to work with her again on some more portraits to showcase her hair and makeup. Of course I had to say yes, and now I can share a few examples of her work. Our lovely model for the day was Jess.
One of the best things about being a photographer is getting to meet and work with new and interesting people. A few months ago, at a wedding fair in the Thorngate Halls, Gosport, I met Claire who runs Couture Hair and Make Up.
They got to chatting, as you’d expect ;o) and ended up planning a shoot!
Work schedules being what they are it took a little time, but we managed to organise a day early in April to work together. The main goal was to create some photos to show a few different wedding hair and make-up styles. Claire organised two fantastic models to work with, Cara and Charlotte, and we worked at Claire’s home where she has her salon.
These are just a few of the images we created. After shooting the wedding styles we had some fun with a vintage look too!
We all had a fantastic day working together. It was certainly a lot of work, but a lot of fun too and I am sure Claire and I will work together again soon. It’s only a matter of time until we are both booked for the same wedding I’m sure.
I want to say a big thank you to Charlotte and Cara too. They were very professional but great company all day long. Thank you!
