It's been a little while since I did any portrait or fashion photography, so a few weeks ago I browsed Instagram looking for local models, bloggers, and other people who might be interested in setting up a photoshoot. I stumbled upon Hannah, the owner of The Mermaid Life Blog, and instantly wanted to collaborate. She's got the most amazing blue hair, and her blog and Instagram are full of super-stylish photos and selfies. I got in touch, and we arranged to meet up on Sunday to take some photos.
We chose to go for an urban location, in the middle of Norwich city center. I usually go for pretty landscape backgrounds with grass and trees, so this made a real difference to the way I photographed. She'd brought along a new denim jacket with pink faux fur trim, which became the central focus of our shoot: we chose the backgrounds and props, as well as her makeup, with the colour pink in mind. Hannah was really easy to work with and posed well, and it was a pleasure to photograph her! We had a giggly morning in the quiet, sleepy streets on Norwich.
Here are the final photos from the shoot (click to view full-size).
