What a day! I had been planning this for several weeks, getting everything in order, teamed up with an experienced and talented hair and make up artist in the form of Melony and lined up six lovely women to take part in the shoots. The day started with the usual bedlam involved with getting the family up, ready and out the door shortly after 7am. Then it was home again to get the play area transformed into a shoot zone and turn my kitchen into a salon for the day.
I was excited to be working with Melony, she does beautiful work and conveniently lives only a couple of streets away. We had a full day scheduled with our victims coming in every hour with a short gap in the middle of the day for a bite to eat or to catch up if we were running a little over time. Kylie turned up right on time at 9am and slipped straight into the chair ready for her makeover. As Kate turned up to take her turn in the makeup chair, Kylie came through so we could start shooting!
From here, it was a constant blur of makeup, shooting, outfit changes, background changes, whipping hair up, adding in hairpieces (which Melony also makes herself, a woman of many talents!) and constant chatter and laughter. All the women looked amazing, and I can’t wait to share some of their photos with you!
