In June 2011, I was asked by the new online boutique shop, Boutique Princess, to create an iconic set of images that they could use for their advertising shot & new website home page that summed up their target audience & the style of stock that they were aiming to sell.
After a great meeting with the two founders, Kelly & Denise, we had decided on a set of images & a general style for the shoot.
Finding a location proved to quite an easy task for this project. I had been recommended Hotel Pelirocco by a couple of friends as a possible quirky location. I was looking for a setting that resembled a girls bedroom - it had to look quite girly, so the Pin-Up Parlour was chosen!
Boutique Princess had already chosen a model that they wanted to work with from some of my previous fashion shoots - the fantastic Tess Dimos. I've worked with Tess on a number of occassions now & she's always a pleasure to work with - very professional & gets what you are after straight away with very little directing from me.
The stylist, make-up & hair stylist was the good ol'faithful, Lauren Eva - we've worked together on so many projects now & make a very good team.
The shoot day was great fun & I'm hoping the images reflect that. I know I've had a lot of great feedback from people about these shots & the clients loved them. I hope you do too...
