This glamour session has to be one of my favourite sessions to date! I turned up at Steph’s place and first thing we did was to find where we would shoot in her house – they had a beautiful open living area with large windows letting in loads of natural light which were just perfect for what we wanted. Steph already had her hair and make up ready to go, so next step was to check out what clothes we were going to work with. Steph picked out a dozen different outfits and from those we picked three “must have” options and then picked a few more which we would also shoot if time allowed (we ended up shooting six different looks). One of the earlier tops, was this gorgeous soft, pink top which was perfect for some really pretty headshots.
We then moved on to ripped jeans and a casual, pretty lace top and took a range of images from headshots to full body. I love how friendly and relaxed Steph looks in this image and it’s one of my favourites from the day. Second to last outfit was this stunning evening dress which Steph absolutely rocked! She looks amazing, strong and utterly feminine at the same time. THIS is glamour!
One of the challenges was getting Steph into some of the poses (definitely not a reflection on you Steph), they’re trickier than they look! After re-setting her pose yet again, she was getting frustrated that she couldn’t just “get it right”. But you know what, we’re not professional models, we don’t do this on a daily basis and chances are you’ve never done anything like this before, so it can’t be expected that this will all just come naturally. So after shaking it all out and starting again, we nailed it the next go.
The final outfit? Well, we won’t be sharing those photos, but I believe her husband was very pleased with the results!
If you’re interested in having me come over to your place, and letting me make some gorgeous photographs of you, get in touch and we will set a date!
