Weekend Madness

Oh and not forgetting Miss Dior!

Well that's the weekend over and I'm finally recovering from my weekend away in Glasgow! I have to admit that I'm still recovering and probably should check myself into rehab.......either that or I'm getting to old for this carry on!

I have to say a huge thanks to Sharon and Del for putting us up in their gorgeous flat. God you forget how clean a house can look when you don't have children! I mean there is no way I could get away with having a white sofa in my house ha ha!!! After getting all dolled up and heading for something to eat we went to Maggie May's which was ace! I was feeling all birthdayfied and special, wearing my lovely peg trousers and vest top and jacket not to mention my backless bra that required "body tape" or so the woman announced when I politely asked if she had tit tape! Well that's what I thought it was called. Anyway, I was having a conversation with this couple who said they might pop along when in mid conversation my "tit tape" lost it's grip. Yep I felt it fall completely off! Luckily my vest top was tucked into my trousers ;-). Not quite sure I should be telling this story on my blog but hey ho, these things happen to us all don't they?????

I've spent today trying to sort out the business side of Amara Ritchie, and trying to design my new brochure prices. I've also got round to editing a mini collaboration shoot I did with the fabulous Danielle who did the makeup, in between Amara stealing her Dior brighter than bright pink lipstick. I've posted them in the beautiful people gallerie but if you want a look check them out above!

Right off to watch Gok's Fashion Fix xx

Vintage Frills

Thought I would induldge in another self portrait. Actually.......this was taken back in February I think for my Graded Unit project based on faceless self portraits but thought I would share it with you as I quite like the effect I achieved. to Glasgow tomorrow to see Eskimo Blonde they are playing at Maggie Mays if anyone is from or going to be in that area. I'm also escaping as it's my brithday (21 again) so it will be quite nice to have some me time for a change!

Got some model shots to post soon, have been working with a make-up artist and hoping to do some more soon. Hope everyone has had a lovely Easter so far.

Model Scouting

Today Simone and I went model scouting in Aberdeen. We are in the middle of a fashion project with no models, so we decided to brave it and hit the streets of Aberdeen. I must admit we felt a bit like stalkers, checking people out as they crossed the road and followed them about shops but I have to admit it was quite a fun day! We managed to find a few gorgeous girls who will hopefully be great in front of the camera and who we are looking forward to working with. It's quite a daunting thing hitting the streets especially as you don't know how people will react. Yes we were turned down a few times in the beginning which cast some doubt but as the day went on and we got wetter and colder we just went for it. Anyhooooo, all in all it was a good day!

So to anybody reading this..........if you know of any good potential models who are hopefully 5'6 and up please feel free to let me know or get in touch!

Congrats to Rhodine & Heba

This has got to be the maddest wedded couple I have ever photographed!! They were both absolutely fantastic and a real joy to work with. I had so much fun from this shoot that I want to share, Rhodine and Heba were brilliant and a very well suited couple and I wish them many years of happiness. Heba is Egyptian and has the most fab accent you have ever heard, it's a cross between Egyptian with a mild Scottish accent thrown in and you couldn't help but love her personalitly and the sense of fun she had or should I say they both had. Rhodine commented that he liked one of my SP's with an apple involved. Much to my surprise he appeared with a red and green apple which had everyone giggling. Anyway here is a little taster of what's to come ........The Happy Couple stopping traffic in Union Street, Aberdeen and once again Congratulations to Rhodine and Heba. xxx
