Makeover + Shoot Day #3


I’m very excited to announce another Makeover + Shoot Day

Our poster advert girl – Jenni – was on the very first Makeover Day, held almost a year ago. It was her very first shoot in front of a pro camera, let alone in a studio setting. Now look at her! :)

These shoots are really great if you want to gather confidence in front of the camera, to dress up and try a completely different style, update your portfolio if you’re already a model, or if you want to buy a gift for your girlfriend, partner, wife, sister, friend, or even a treat for yourself. You get the idea..

This time, we have included a ‘before’ picture, so you can see what we do on these Special days.

The £140 fee includes: Pre-shoot consultation with me to make sure you get the shoot, style and look that you’re after. Studio time in the setting of your choice, glass of red or white wine (or non-alcoholic drink if you prefer) as you arrive at the studio, your hair styled by Ceri and makeup applied by Amber, half hour shooting time with me for which you can change your outfit twice if you wish, and finally 4 fully edited images of your choice on CD for you to get printed.

You will be required to pay a 50% deposit to secure your place on the day. The remaining balance needs to be paid a week before the shoot date. There are 6 places on the Makeover + Shoot Day. They are on a first come, first served basis. To ensure you don’t miss out, please pay your deposit.

If you are interested, or have any further questions, please email me at To pay your deposit and read the Shoot Day info, please visit my store. If you don’t have PayPal, don’t worry, there’s an option to pay by credit/debit card when it takes you to the checkout section at PayPal.

Hope you’re all enjoying the Easter break, I look forward to meeting more of you on this Makeover Day!



What Katie Did – SS12 Collection Launch

Last weekend I had an invite along to my favourite vintage inspired lingerie shop – What Katie Did, to cover their new Spring/Summer 2012 Collection Launch. How could I resist?!

Not only do I love the era, designs and quality of fabric they use, but also their attention to every detail – which is evident when you visit their cute boutique in Portabello Road, London UK

On arrival, I was greeted by these adorable little cupcakes, surrounded by vintage crockery (see what I mean about detail?)

Then there was this little girl playing hostess serving cocktails (she had the non-alcoholic pitcher in case you were wondering)

The boutique started filling up with people in anticipation of the new collection, it was a lovely atmosphere. While waiting, I snapped a picture of their signature padded bullet bras, in vintage peach – one of my favourite styles in the shop and, to me, it sums up everything about underwear in the 50’s era.

Miss Maleficent Martini wears the new ‘Deco’ design, inspired by Art Deco in pink satin with an icy silver sunburst design.

Everyone gathers outside to watch the girls parade around the shop and the gorgeous Miss Miranda do her strip tease in the shop window

Miss Miranda wears  ‘Marlene’ underwear set in black and vintage peach. This set is rumoured to be the one to watch this spring/summer!

Here’s a few close ups of the girls in some of the new collection

Job well done ladies, Pip Pip!

The girls behind the till were so busy and commented to me that they would sleep very well that night!

A happy and successful day for What Katie Did!
