Well what a week! Life as a mum-tographer has some great high's and lows. Lots of both this week all crammed into one half term. Here is a high to share, a wonderful shoot at the beautiful Hellens Manor in Herefordshire. Styled and concepts by me, Make up by Penny Wadley Gibson, Hair by Joe Honey, Flowers by Bamboo of Ledbury, Accessories by Becky Lewis, and general assistance from Annelise Appleby.
For this shoot I wanted to pick up themes of female identity and relationship and objectivity. Inspiration came also from the wonderful work of Jane Campion the films The Piano and Bright Star.
I placed the shoot in my mind in the regency period, and requested dresses which reflected this style, I wanted some more modern kicks, and instucted Joe and Penny to slightly "deconstuct" as much as they felt confident to. Finally I wanted to respond to the environment as much as possible. These are just a few sneak peeks, at low resolution, full post to follow.
