Spring Carnivale

Saturday saw out the next installment of my seasons shoots. Spring was upon me. Very impressed, my 'model patient', if you don't mind the pun, was very willing to be glued and prodded all day. Extremely patient with me and the flowers alike.
Beautiful eyes, can't wait for the finished product and to materialize the remaining two seasons! :)

River Romance

Saturday I met a worldly, young couple down on the river banks. A once in a lifetime pairing of two countries who are settling in a third.
They have not been in our beautiful country long but one thing I can see for sure is they will make the most of their life together. Starting out young and in love, half way around the world away from their family and friends I have no doubt they will prosper.

*Winter Wonderland*

Last Saturday was my chance to get out and shoot something that I wanted to create for myself. The first of my seasons themed shoots, Winter, took me by surprise.
I was able to put my make up skills to the limit and I think I impressed myself. I felt so rewarded once I had actually achieved the images I had thrown around in my head for the past couple of weeks or even months.
Schanae was a trooper and sat through two and a half hours of make up and hair for a 20min photo shoot and still managed to blow me away. She needed no direction at all and really played the part well. What a fantastic model.
Definitely cannot wait to bring on the remaining seasons and attempt all the other ideas I have. Finally I think I have found where I want to head with this endeavour of mine I call my life.
Can't wait to see the full retouched pics!
Til next time x
