So i had a photo shoot on Thursday with Rita we met at Talacre Beach an the weather was good! so my sun dance actually payed off!! ;) It was a mild warm but windy kinda July afternoon an I was so excited to be doing my semi-styled shoot with Rita.
What is a "semi-styled" shoot? well it's not fully-styled shoot! So the model will do her own hair/makeup & choose her own clothes (from maybe a suggested color theme) I'm not sure if that's an official term for it, but it's my official term. :)
So i decided to style it initially like a light picnic so i bought some Rose lemonade and some fancy detailed glasses with a matching color jar. Then picked some fresh Lavender sprigs & Hydrangea heads from my mums garden to display, I'd previously bought a picnic rug & seen a really cute blue & white plate a few days back and as luck would have it, the plate had been reduced to only £2 from £4 in Sainsburys and it was the last one. Rug & glass details were all from the factory shop.
after having a chat with Rita i discovered that we both coincidentally connected in our spiritual beliefs. We both has practiced meditation & done some form of energy work, liked the same author Doreen Virtue (iv'e been reading her books for years) and especially love her Goddess & Angel cards. Rita is clairsentient like me. She has a very upbeat, daring & fun way about her. A confidence which she says has recently blossomed from recently taking up burlesque. So now her confidence in posing in front of the camera comes a lot more naturally! She is really not afraid to just let go & be herself.
Having now just finished my editing from our Thursday's shoot i'm so pleased with the final gallery of prints. Love & thank you for a great afternoon Rita. YJ x
