Its been such a wonderful thing being able to work with Jodie and the girls from Fresh on our creative collaborations. They have been generous with trusting my vision and for giving me the chance to run free with my camera. This little story told with gorgeous local girl, Em Cram was inspired by a glamorous unpolished french girl feel. I got to shoot in one of my all time favourite spots at Morpeth in the old bake-house and the lighting couldn't have been more perfect. I have a real love for low key photography and the way it brings out certain hidden details. I love the way shadows invite a feeling of curiosity. The textured wallpaper and the natural light smashed the french feel. Fresh perfected the curls starting with an 80's inspired loose up-style, musing from Madonna and Christina Aguilera (anyone pick up on the irony of Em standing next to a Special's Board, locals you'll get this one!). The makeup was soft and natural to compliment the lighter colours in the amazing Asilio skirt and lace bodysuit as well as Em's skin. Jodie changed up the lip colour to add drama in each series of shots. At the end we combed out, messed up and played 'morning after' before wrapping up.
Thanks Jodie for not only being an awesome hair and makeup guru but for moving furniture, buying me fresh bread and pumping Justin Bieber (I am now officially a 30 year old Belieber). The thing I love most about these shoots is everyone involved is as excited, passionate and driven as I am. There is no better feeling, at least for me as a photographer than having professionals in the creative industry support and encourage my vision.
