Gorgeous Nicole on the blog today. She was looking for a quick portfolio update, so we did a bit of everything this shoot – boudoir/lingerie, fitness, casual fashion, etc. Hairstyling my me, DIY makeup, all shot at the new studio.
Love this pink bodysuit – the perfect option for a feminine, girly look.
I mean, you’re meant to use about four lights and a proper backdrop for fitness photography, but we got some pretty solid results with net curtains and a window. Less if more? It’s certainly faster. I would like to do a bit more with the complicated setups though, so if you’re reading this and in training for a fitness competition or in great shape otherwise, I’d be keen to practice with you:)
That winning commercial smile 🙂 🙂 🙂
One last one to round it out. Thanks Nicole, so lovely to work with you! xx Stormy
It’s she great? We started with a happy bridal boudoir look. This sort of thing is simple to throw together: white or cream lingerie, cheap veil, done.
You can obviously add more if you’d like. Garters, wedding shoes, wedding hairpieces, white stockings, and more complicated wedding lingerie all look lovely, but if you’re not a lace and tulle sort of girl you don’t have to force it:)
Such a lovely smile:) 🙂 🙂
I recently read “Americanah” by Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and absolutely loved it. I’ve always liked shooting natural black hair, but I feel like I understand the context much better now. It’s brilliant novel, perfect for a smart summer read, and described by the author in this way:
“I like to say that this is a novel about love, about race, and about hair. In particular I want to talk about natural black hair, and how it’s not just hair. I mean, I’m interested in hair in sort of a very aesthetic way, just the beauty of hair, but also in a political way: what it says, what it means.” – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Still working out how to get this chandelier in more images.
For our second look, we did a summery orange lingerie look on modern hotel bedding.
I love this colour – so fresh and current. Celine’s makeup was done by Elizabeth Joseph-Love and fit the look perfectly.
I’m also working on these laying down bed poses shot from above recently.
It’s precarious, and pretty hit and miss – I get like, 1 in 12? But when it works, it works.
