In January I answered a casting call on model mayhem where a lady by the name of Hailee was looking for a series of images for her portfolio that involved her guitar. We arranged to meet over coffee and worked out that she was looking for two completely different looks.

The first was a glamorous look in the style of Dita Von Tease, and the second was a series of shots with the guitar that were inspired by a series of shots from the 60’s involving Bridget Bardow.

I arranged to use a friends studio in Wellington and Ivy Gordon agree to do hair & makeup.

While I am really pleased with the results I learned a big lesson from the session that adequate time needs to be planned for hair & makeup. The actual time for shooting ended up being rather squeezed and so it ended being more rushed than I tend to like.LR-Hailee-2 LR-Hailee-22 LR-Hailee-42 LR-Hailee-44
