Meet the Ladies – Makeover + Shoot Day #2

We had such a fun time on the 2nd Makeover + Shoot Day! If you are on my Facebook Page, you would have seen teasers go up over the past couple of weeks. Ceri, Amber and I had such varied looks to work with; a classic 40’s/50’s style, casual rocked up look, vintage gothic, alternative lingerie and a classy high fashion style shoot. Here’s some of my favourite pictures from the day They all look absolutely stunning! Wouldn’t you agree?! I really do love to put on these Makeover Days, especially when I get to photograph some ladies that book, and it’s their first time in front of the camera for a professional shoot. To see the transformation and their confidence boost is one of my favourite things. We will be running another one next year. Wow hasn’t time gone by! I will put an announcement up soon with a poster for the next Makeover + Shoot Day. You can join me on my Facebook Page as well. I’m bowled over to see it has hit over 3,500 “likes”. Thank you :) Hope to meet some more of you next year! Mx

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 […]
