Our First Photoshoot
So after a long awaited wait it was finally here, the morning of Baby Janes photshoot.
With the the car crammed full of bras, knickers, basques, corsets, chemises, every kind of lingerie that you could possibly imagine. Boxes of boots, shoes, rails and of course bottles of wine for the girls, I set off down the motorway to Manchester.
The shoot was to take place at the Lowry Mill just outside of Manchester, and I was excited to meet Carlton from Carlton Photography on location. I choose Carlton to shoot for La Femme as I had fallen in love with the style of shots he had done for Boardmans Fashion Accessories which were shown on his website.
When I arrived I met with Carlton and he introduced me to Alison who was to do hair and makeup for the shoot. Carlton had talked with me in length about the shoot and what he wanted to achieve from my brief, he had picked the Lowry Mill as the shoot location because of it’s various backgrounds and textures as he thought these could give him the editorial feel that we were looking for, for our first shoot.
The model Miranda arrived, she was an experienced lingerie model and she was perfect for the photoshoot as no direction by Carlton was needed. With Alison doing hair and Makeup, I started to style outfits for each shoot.
Hair and Make up done, Miranda in her first outfit and Carlton behind the camera it was time to begin.
What an amazing day. Non stop, exhausting and yet brilliant, seeing the images on the laptop as they were being taken was really exciting, the various backgrounds really complimented the style of lingerie, it couldn’t have gone any better.
Carlton and the girls were fun, friendly and professional and I am looking forward to working with them again soon for our second shoot.
