Happy Valentine's Day!

February 14, 2018

 Last Saturday was a busy day in the studio!  I did a two part styled shoot, and a lovely family shoot with Jodie, Alex, and the adorable Millie-rae. I arrived at Foofed (an excellent hair and beauty salon in Boldmere, Sutton Coldfield - check out their facebook for more info) in the morning, and I walked in to see hair and make-up for our styled shoot well under way!  Derrie, beauty therapist apprentice and model was having her make up done by the lovely Siobhan, make-up artist and joint owner at Foofed.  Hair in rollers, music on, it felt like a proper girly day at the salon!  While the girls were working their magic, I set up the studio for our Valentine's inspired shoot...

 We started off with a natural look; white shirt, soft pink dewy make-up, and a relaxed feel to the poses and soft lighting.  It clearly wouldn't be Valentine's without some red sun glasses (in February...why not?!) so we tried some fashion portrait shots to get a lovely close up of the gorgeous make-up.

 For the second half of our shoot, we decided to 'foof' it up a bit, and Siobhan created a new, glam look for the make-up; it would look great on a Valentine's night out, or date night.  Derrie wore a beautiful red jump suit, pictured here.  We played around with the lighting to cast some interesting shadows in black and white, and also produced some vibrant red pictures to really ramp up the Valentine's theme :)

 If only one could walk around all day with a strategically placed fan for a cinematically blown doo...

 It was a such a fun shoot to do, and I'm already brainstorming a theme for my next styled shoot.  I've been doing some research on interesting backgrounds for portrait sessions, so roll on spring and hopefully some good weather so next time I can take the shoot outdoors.
