 The best look of the day. Without a doubt!

Today I'm wearing (or on the shoot day I was wearing)... A granny skirt I bought for a fancy dress party.. I love it!

Nikki looking like a beautiful ballerina!

OOOPS! I went overboard with the sugar.. No wonder I was hyper and dancing around all day :D

I'm going to steal all of Sian's pretty colours one day...

Open wide!

Hmmm.. a little accident with the self tanning maybe?

Mish mash of colours :

Sohui and Roseanna for Sugarpill BTS

This was a treat of a shoot last Monday.. I got to play with ALL the pretty colours! I need to find some spare time but I can't wait to finish these off and show them to everyone. (Carry on reading as there is loads of info all the way to the bottom of the post!)

Pretty pretty colours!!

I like Sugarpill make-up <3

Roseanna's undercut (nearly wrote undercute then, and I wouldn't be wrong!!) makes me miss my shaved side..

Silver robot face on the go:

The girls!

Love Sohui's backpack.. Cute and practical! (I think I'm gearing myself up to buy another bag.. girls need loads of bags!)

And a little peek as there is an ongoing project happening.. Can't wait for this one!! Amazing retoucher M. Seth Jones is writing a book about beauty retouching and he'll be getting his paws on my images for it! So keep an eye out for more info, as it will be an amazing read for all photographers and retouchers out there :D

Scene magazine

Monday mornings are best spent at the studio. That way they just feel amazing! Especially with such a great shoot on the go..

We shot 3 different looks for Scene Magazine, a new Birmingham based publication. And I discovered Ami can do amazing nail art!!

Adage New Faces BTS

I was after a challenge and wanted to meet some new people, so I got Tracie from Adage Models in Birmingham to send me models and a full team for a little test.

I ended up shooting new faces Elliott and Isidora (who were at their first and second shoot respectively) with make-up artist Danni and stylist Demi. It was a lovely day all in all and I'm working on the images as I write (well, not at the same time, but nearly!).

I have a few behind the scenes images here, where I was testing Isidora's face to see what worked best for her as well as having a little reminder of the day. Elliott was due a bit later, so I have no images of him at this point.

Talking about having a reminder of the day, I've just been reading through old journals and I do miss having one (so this blog is like a make-shift journal for me, reminding me of what happened on such and such a day, even if it's just on shoot days!). Maybe I should have another little journal blog for myself, but I do love the idea of having it on paper instead, with loads of different mementoes stuck on for good measure!

Anyway, here are the images:

Here's Isidora:

And she's having her make-up done by Danni (that's concentration on her face!): 

Some of the clothes..

More clothes!!

More make-up..

And finishing up!
