Creating a photoshoot – what happens in photography and fashion!

On Wednesday a lot of hard work and preparation came together in the form of our photoshoot. I love photoshoots they can be nerve racking but also exciting because it’s your vision coming together.

A crew of five of us got together for a photo shoot of my office summer wear collection which includes blouses, dresses and a skirt.

The clothes waiting

Sometimes the best bits are the behind the scenes shots, the goings on and the conversations you have with the team!

This shoot was no exception…. we had a random dog, difficult weather, one tiny room to prepare in and a deadline to get off the island before the tide was high!!Discussing the shoot

Whilst the model was having her hair and makeup done, the photographer Kerrie and I discussed the photoshoot. It had to be a military operation due to the weather. The huge amounts of wind meant it was going to be really difficult to stay outside for too long before the model got chilled to the bone, we had to move quickly!

On the shoot

We decided on the order of the five looks, each of their backdrops, the props and accessories, the poses we wanted and the angle of the shots!

I had a fight with the wind! The wind won and turned the umbrella inside out, it took two of us to turn it around (after they’d all had a good chuckle at me and taken some pics of me struggling!!).

We were visited by a dog who decided he wanted to be involved and join us in the beach hut and be in the photos!! I think he owned the beach, what a poser!

We were shooting on an island and twice a day there is high tide. We got through all the shots and had to rush off before the tide was high! It was a bit of a crazy end to the day!
