The project brief was just a digital project meaning the images had to be digital but I could go down any route in terms of genre. I decided as always to shoot my favourite type of photography; that being fashion/portraiture/editorial. I love free reign projects. I fee like I get involved in them so much more!
I decided to use floral head crowns supplied by the lovely Crown & Glory and use my sister as the model for the whole project! She is quite tall, with a pale complexion and long hair. When testing my ideas, she reminded me of a cherub so I went along with that theme and here are the test shot outcomes. I'm really happy with these! The only things I changed for the final shoot was the colour of the head crown and the location.

For the final shoot, it was about a month ago when we had rain in London non-stop and then one day it was gloriously sunny so it was SHOOT DAY!! We headed to our local forest and when I say we.. my mum and dad decided to help! Even the dog came along! The car was loaded with makeup, a fur coat to keep my sister warm, biscuits to keep us going and a big bag of camera gear.
What do you think?
