Oh yeeeeaahhh! Roll on Summer!!
I woke up this morning with a message from Sergio that he had finished the first photo and wanted me to check it and make sure the lighting and feel of the shoot was conveyed as I had wanted. Well it is, and I’m very excited to show you the first photo that is completed.
Once again I feel so lucky to have an arsenal of talented friends I can call on. Allow me to introduce them:
Sergio is a Spanish photographer who lives in Madrid and works with some great magazines like Cyan, Doze and El Duende who now we are on my third lookbook together. Laura Lashley on make-up who I’ve known for some time when I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar (literally) and Alexis modeling who I recently met when I began working at Marlow & Sons.
Alexis was a professional ballet dancer who trained at S.A.B and when I told Sergio this (though we were messaging all of this information) I knew his eyes were lighting up instantly imagining the direction of the shoot. Something I see a lot in his photos and that I’m drawn to is his use of movement and to have a professional dancer at our disposal was a very exciting prospect.
So without further ado here is the first photo! I’m also super excited to be using a lot of colour in my bags for the first time, but more on that later…
Man oh man it’s been super busy these past couple of weeks. We shot my SS12 lookbook which I can’t wait for you to see, big shout-out to Sergio de Luz, Laura Lashley and Alexis Ostrowski and to Marlow & Sons for letting us shoot in their gallery space. It was a lovely way to end 2011!
If I take a second to breath and reflect I can say without a doubt that has been an amazing year for me professionally and personally and in a bittersweet goodbye – here is my ‘year that was’ tribute, cue lights and music…
