Snow, that pretty white cold stuff that falls from the sky and that adds extra magic to Christmas… But for it to be falling on Easter weekend? When I’ve planned a shoot? I don’t think so!
We all turned up at the shop this morning and it was sunny – the wind was low and we were all in high spirits as it looked as if the weather man was wrong and that the snow they had forecast had buggered off somewhere else – but we were wrong!
After Chloe did Annas’ Make -up (we decided a modern 60’s look) I put her in an amazing 60’s on trend mono-chrome dress( with modern high heels to keep it fres)h – and then Kirsty (our amazing photographer) took brave Anna out in the cold to shoot the first ensemble..
and the skies started to turn darker… and greyer and then it came down hard.. so hard .
At this point we all felt deflated, not only had I a raging hangover from beer fest the night before, but I really wanted to get the outfits shot as my asos marketplace boutique needs filling up and new things so people find my stuff…
So we tried shooting under the shelter next to the shop which turned out OK…
We weren’t giving up ! We weren’t going to let a little bit of frozen water ruin our day!!
Then the snow slowed down, and then the sun came out.. and even though it was very cold, Anna was a great model and produced some fab images with Kirsty even though she had to adhere to the Asos marketplace rules (natural light, no flash and all shot portrait) .. including these showing a fab Indian cotton 70’s Hippie dress, A two piece 70’s halterneck/wrap maxi skirt ensemble and a fabulous pincord pinafore dress from the 80’s.. Anna is also wearing a pair of shoes I bought last year from Brand Alley which, even though are near on 5 inches high, were the most comfortable shoes to wear and added a touch of Blondie to almost everything I wore last year!
What do you think? So the moral of the story is – don’t give up!!
I will be listing these vintage goodies, along with other pretties, over the Easter break on our asos Marketplace boutique here – https://marketplace.asos.com/boutique/madam-popoff-vintage
