Adoring all things vintage, whimsical and downright quirky

Category Archives: Photo Shoots

We created a hair and makeup look for a recent editorial shoot for Alison Moore of Hobbits Vintage Creations. It was inspired by Mexican artist Frieda Khalo. Our look channelled this icon with a smattering of Jane Russell thrown in for good measure, courtesy of our model, Saffron.

Saffy channelling Frieda!

We spent a sunny afternoon in Bishop’s Castle (or thereabouts!) with Alison and her son, fashion photographer, Reuben Moore who has worked for Vogue Japan, Vogue Thailand, Glamour Russia, Tatler Russia, FashionToMax, Harvey Nichols to name but a few. The images featured here were actually shot by my partner in crime, Charlotte, who has a real eye for photography.

Alison creates stunning headpieces, veils, corsages, bags, hat and more from vintage fabrics and the shoot was intended to bring the colour and vibrancy of Frieda and her work to illustrate the different styles Alison’s work encompasses. We think it did her justice.

We loved creating the hair and makeup for this wonderfully gothic yet whimsical editorial shoot which we shot last November and it has just appeared in Your West Midlands Wedding magazine – out now!

The recent Elsie Riley shoot, which took place at the oh-so-quirky warren that is Goldbrick House was so much fun. Our models, Laya and Rhea were just fab and as usual Elena, the snapper, turned it out!

The inspiration was a dark and glamourous Alice  in Wonderland vibe, so I made sure the hair and make-up was girly vintage glam.

Here are a few pics from the day – which will be appearing on Elsie Riley’s site soon. Enjoy!

Pure glamour!
