Fish out of water: my first photoshoot

There’s something about the eye of a camera lens that can instantly cause discomfort. In many cases it’s simply just an awkwardness, or a self-conscious reaction. I know this is certainly true in my case!

When I was a bit younger, if a camera were to point my way I would shrink back, my hands would fly up in front of my face, and I would protest; “no no! I look gross!”. This is a pretty standard teenage reaction. It takes a long time (if not a lifetime) to gain that confidence, and ease with simply being who you are.

I was nineteen years old when I won a photo shoot with Millyjane Photography. I had never done anything like this before, nor had I ever thought about it. I was equally excited and nervous for my first ever shoot with a professional photographer.

I was definitely lacking in the self confidence arena – my skin was troublesome and I’d begun to work hard to get into shape to recover from the last few years of eating takeaway, going through puberty and not getting enough sleep (oh, to be young again!).

How very lucky I was to work with a pair of extremely kind and unbelievably creative people for my first shoot! Milly’s photography always blows me away, it’s as if she sees things from an entirely different perspective to any one else on this planet. Just as a true photographer should 🙂

Sarah is a dab hand at creative makeup, she has an amazing eye for colours and her work is precise and professional. I now call on Sarah whenever I need professional makeup applications! You can book in with her or any of the wonderful MAC makeup artists by calling MAC Garden City.

Here’s a behind the scenes video to show how we created the below portraits, plus a range of the different shots taken that day!

I’ve photographed Lexie a number of times – and she really is one of my favourite ladies ever to photograph! I have her on instagram, and when I saw her selfie with pastel pink and teal unicorn hair, I got in touch straight away to organise a personal shoot. She’s also an awesome fashion blogger – Lexie Lou

All that glitters

If there’s one thing you will learn about me very quickly… it is that I adore sparkles!

There can never be too much glitter in my opinion. Sparkles just inject more fun, more happiness, and more magic into your outfit!

Why wouldn’t you choose to brighten your day?

It’s not only mankind who adores glitter… nature loves it just as much 🙂
