Creative Photoshoot

Before leaving Herefordshire I wanted to do one last creative photoshoot. By this time I didn’t have time to plan a full wedding shoot so I trawled through Pinterest looking for idea’s. Any of you that use Pinterest know how easy it is to get completely sucked in and sidetracked! Well this time wasn’t any different. My initial brief was maybe to have an urban ballet shoot. This quickly changed into something more theatrical after seeing some other Pins.

Fox Ballet? Of course that is normal, right? I would need just one model and a wonderful make-up artist – I knew just where to go for that, but I didn’t know any professional ballet dancers. Twitter to the rescue.

Within the hour I had contact from two dancers. You gotta love the power of Social Media sometimes.

Sharing the Pinterest board with both my model and chosen make up artist meant that everyone knew what I had in mind. It contained poses for Rebecca to look at and hair and make up for Maria to take ideas from.

I love seeing my concept become a reality. Also the look on Rebecca’s face when she saw the transformation, magic!

The actual shoot was fun and my fantastic fox was able to make some beautiful lines and shapes in the field we were using.

I think over the years and certainly more recently with the glitz and sparkle of Strictly Come Dancing there has been a lot more emphasis on learning to dance and especially for a wedding first dance. So maybe we will be seeing more ballet dancing foxes?

With thanks to a gorgeous vintage boutique in Ledbury for supplying the stunning delicate lace blouse. The lovely people of Juice Collection for the loan of their highly sought after feather lapel/hat pins. All sorts of creativeness and beauty by Maria of Sprinkle Magic. Of course, this wouldn’t have happened without my very own ballet dancing fox and good sport Rebecca White of The Starlight Company
