A few weeks ago I was contacted by my good friend Rachel, who wanted to know if I’d be interested in taking part in a vintage pin-up themed photoshoot with a local photographer. Of course I was! I sent off my blog stats and didn’t think much about it. But low and behold, along with three other NE bloggers; Rachel, Alice and Kathryn, I was chosen to taken part in the shoot. How exciting!?
So of I went last Sunday to be transformed into a Vintage babe. It was so much fun. The stylist, Nichola, had picked out two perfect outfits for me. They were exactly what I would have picked out for myself. Liam from SalonLRM gave me the coolest hairstyle ever. I actually visited my Grandma on Monday and she showed my photographs of her wearing a very similar hairstyle back in the late 50’s!
Next up was make-up time. Emily did an amazing job, I absolutely loved how she made my lips look! All the models had the classic pin-up make-up look – black winged liner, lots of lashes and a matte red lip. Absolutely gorgeous, if I do say so myself.
Myself and Kathryn were taken out for the first round of filming. So we all jumped in the Buick. Oh, did I forget to mention we had a VINTAGE BUICK!? It was amazing. So beautiful! We headed over to a lovely little marina where we filmed by Visual Punch, and Photographed by Laura. I was so nervous at first, but it was so much fun that my nerves quickly vanished.
Today I’m sharing with you some sneaky peeks from the shoot, with EXCLUSIVE snippets of video clips to come VERY SOON!
This image was taken from behind the scenes, while Laura was taking a professional snap. I absolutely adore how my dress looks with the car, and I just can’t wait to share more photos/video with you!
