My idea of an awesome day is spending time in my studio styling my clients and adding special touches to the outfits they bring. It makes me so happy when I can surprise them with things that I create specifically for their shoot.
I do a lot of research online and a lot of learning before my photoshoots, so that I can create something special. I’m blown away by how many creatives there are online (what on earth did we do before the internet)! Etsy is an endless source of inspiration and supplies. I also spend a ton of time studying my mentor, Sue Bryce’s images and her videos on SueBryceEducation.com. That’s where I got the inspiration for the neck pieces I worked on yesterday. She has a knack for taking bits and pieces and magically creating gorgeous pieces.
When I was a girl, I fell in love with the book, Pride and Prejudice. I think it will always be my favorite movie too (Jjust ask my family how many times I have watched the version starring Kiera Knightly, and you’ll hear unanimous groans). In fact, I have been researching Jane Austen clubs to join. I have an idea roaming around my head about taking clients to England for Pride and Prejudice tour photoshoots! Woot Woot!!!
So, it’s not surprising that I researched how to create a Marie Antoinette-inspired wig for a vintage romance photoshoot (a little earlier than the Pride and Prejudice period, but who cares). When I saw the images that Sue Bryce created using an 18th century wig she created, I knew I had to try it too. I had soooo much fun creating this wig and I can’t wait to use it on a shoot next week.
