Pride Magazine: Beauty Spread

Wish I could have filmed the making of this shoot!!! So I came up with an idea to do a really cool romantic flirty beauty shoot with the poem 'Roses are Red...' which I have been dying to do for agessss!! I have seen very lovely beauty shoots in the past with flowers being used as props... but hardly just 'PETALS'... at first my idea was to scatter the petals across the models chest and on the floor and have her being shot whilst lying down. The photographer thought it would be more interesting to have the petals as if the petals grew on her, in the end we stuck the petals on one by one to have a growing effect!
All petals had a themed makeup to match, accept the brown/ orange lips look which Erica our fabulous stylist, styled with a faux fur sleeve and it added to the entire shoot perfectly!!! All jewellery was provided by the talented Marina Prokopiva.
