Photoshoot

These past few days have been super busy for me - as well as preparing for graduation and starting my summer job, I've been helping my friend Laura with her photoshoots.


Laura is such an amazing photographer!  I'm normally the least photogenic person ever and I feel so awkward in front of the camera but she always manages to get great results.  (Either that or she takes so many photos that chances are there'll be at least a couple where I'm not making a goofy face!)


Laura also has a good eye for beautiful locations for her pictures, I love the contrast of the red door against my green dress.  It was difficult to keep up my serious photo face in these pictures though as people kept walking past and a group of children stopped to watch for a while, it was a bit awkward!


It was also hard to keep a straight face when Kelex who was helping Laura out kept waving the light reflector right next to my head to create an atmospheric breeze...


Kelex managed to take a couple of photos too, including this one.


I think these two are my favourites, I love the movement in the first one!

I'm doing another shoot with Laura next weekend in Stonehaven, which is a really pretty, old-fashioned Scottish seaside town.  We're hoping to get a hair and make-up artist and some vintage clothes to do a 50s style shoot, I'm so excited for that!

You should take a look at Laura's Facebook page, she has so many amazing photos with models who are far prettier and more professional than me!  She's also getting close to 500 likes and is offering a free professional photoshoot as a prize when she reaches 500, so get to it!
