Fashion Show Boots...

For the end of year fashion show, i wanted to keep with the whole winter theme as that is my season, and a lot of people wear Ugg style boots. Plus i wanted a moccasin style boot but because them because so expensive and my budget would not stretch that far i have decided to buy low costing boots and customise them myself to create a Moccasin inspired boot.



I LOVE how these have come out and i am very happy with them, im glad i decided to do it this way instead of over paying for something that is going to be worn twice.

Behind the scenes of the Photoshoot...

These are just a few shots behind the scenes of the photoshoot

It was such a fun day and I loved it so much! this is something i would love to do again! 

Scouting Out A Location...

So on Thursday after college, i went out looking for a good location with trees and possibly a lovely back drop behin this 4 pictures were potential places

 We ended up using this location for one fo the outfits, but the shadowing from the trees were covering her face to much so we moved closer to the water which was just down a pathway.


8:00 - Wake up and collect all the garments, shoes and anything i would need before hand
9:00 - Abbie arrives so we can do hair and makeup
10:00 - Leave to drive to the loaction
10:20 - Arrive at location, Walk to find the Scouted spot
10:40 - Set up And start shoot
10:45 - Start with coat as its the hottest and end withe the coolest because theat is when the sun in highest in the sky
2:00 Hopefully finished by this time, back up and head back to the car.

Test Makeup

For the makeup I orginally wanted a red band across the eyes or the red hand war paint on the face but decided to change my mind, because I thought that when getting changed and the weather was scheduled to be a hot day, and the makeup would move and sweat off. So i decided on a medium dark eye, with a natural lip. I decided to have a tets run with the makeup,

i didnt want the makeup to be the vocal point on the photoshoot as the American Indians wouldnt of wore makeup at all.
