On Location With Photographer Paul Winstone
Fresh from one of our latest photo shoots we went on location to style and collaborate with new photographer Paul Winstone plus the super fantastic makeup talents of Annie Daniel and quirky modelling skills of Hannah Taylor.
With Paul and Annie coming up from London and Hannah down from Norwich we waved our super big butterfly net to meet somewhere in between that was just right for everyone.
Paul had contacted Annie and me with great admiration for our work a couple of weeks prior to shooting with an inspiriting vision to collaborate together.
Here's what our dream team managed to achieve...
The inspiration behind this set of images was all about autumnal tones with part high fashion styling and a minimally elaborate fantasy twist.
The oversized leather coat in the above and below images was kindly given to us by my lovely nana who had pinched all the fancy buttons beforehand meaning I got to go all kinds of crazy looking for new ones to replace at my favourite haberdashery shop.
Jewellery was sourced cheap from charity and the rope belt was actually an old curtain tie found deep within the never ending Mystic Magic dressing up trunk!
For the fantasy side we went all out on foliage to create this wicked autumn leaf dress that hugged beautifully to model Hannah's body, who described it as a 'floaty airy fairy dress!'
Hench why this styled look was inspired by an 'Autumn Sprite'.
The leaves were all mostly fake so that it made it easier for us to hand sew them on individually. As you can probably imagine Mystic Magic HQ pretty much looked like a forest floor while crafting this and by the end of the day we was all flapping about like starfish making leaf angels!
Never failing to disappoint Annie hit spot on with her makeup artistry for each style using gold leaf and dried hydrangeas for the final look and all the while being fully pregnant too! - A huge inspiration to any working mum to be.
I for one had a really fun time on this photo shoot and loved working with yet another perfect team of fantastic creatives.
