Beauty Shoot with Aliana

It was week 4 of a photography challenge that I am participating in and the topic for this week was "Headshot".  I decided to do a beauty shoot and asked Aliana to be the model.  I'd recently shot with her and loved the way her face photographs.   I searched for some inspiration images and found two looks that I liked.   I asked Afroditi to do the make-up and she blended both inspirations into this one look.

Crazy Hair

The head pieces and dresses in this shoot were created for the Evolution Hair and Beauty show which occurred in July 2015.  The dresses were created by Chineza Augustus (Sevhn) and the hair pieces by Cindy Roberts (Salon Viola). After seeing the show I wanted to shoot the collection, but unfortunately my summer was already fully booked and then I went on a break from September to December.   Fortunately when I started to plan some shoots for the Christmas holidays I found out the dresses were still available and the hair pieces were still intact.

Gold with Sophie Adams

Sophie mentioned that she would be on island over the Christmas break so we arranged this shoot.  As I already had whitespace studio booked for Karina's shoot we decided to double up and shoot Sophie in the same session.  Sophie and Maria came up with the concept, which was a beauty shoot using gold make up with gold leaf flakes.

Studio Shoot with Karina

This shoot with Karina was my first shoot since taking my usual 4 month break during the football season.   When I asked Karina if she wanted to shoot when she was home for Christmas she asked if we could do a studio shoot.  She gave me some inspiration images that were very simple and clean.
We chose some simple outfits and kept the colour pallet to black, white and grey.
