I really love this shoot! One of my absolute favourite photos is this one below, not because of me but just the makeup, the hair, the spider, the lips, the lighting, the earrings, the whole concept of the shot just works so well! Sheena from MAC did an amazing job on the makeup I think!! I can imagine it on the cover of a magazine like Vogue!...I'm dreaming a bit too much I think! Point is... I love the shot!
This shoot was one of the most intricate shoots I have done. There was so many things that we had to coordinate and prepare in advance because of the props involved in the shoot. We wanted to make each shot really strong and had an individual feel but fitted into the general theme of the shoot. Myself, Evan, Leah and Emily (Owners of Crystals and Co. Jewelry) researched different styles of photography and came together and decided on this style of bright colours and strong lighting.
How cute is the necklace on the teddy?!?!
The reason we decided to do the shoot was to celebrate that Crystals and Co. asked me to collaborate with them to design some pieces for their new Autumn/Winter Stock. I will keep you updated on the process as it happens :)
The styling of the shoot was done by Danielle Fitzgerald who I love and do a lot of shoots with. She has started writing a fashion diary in The Gloss magazine you should check it out it gives great tips on shops to visit, fashion trends and tips! Danielle's mother has a beautiful boutique called Rudi and Madison which is in Enniskerry, Wicklow.
This is such a funny picture! The bath was absolutely FREEZING and at one stage the shower randomly came on an poor Aimee Murphy the hair stylist extraordinaire nearly jumped into the bath to pull me out!! Luckily enough you can't notice it in the pictures anyway!!:)
U Magazine used one of the images in their Debs Issue! I've included a picture of the page! I hope you like it! :)
