Let’s just say it; I am possibly the worst blogger in the world. I plan to vlog and blog every few days. However, somehow, someway life kind of takes over. Goals and plans, and work and health and beauty and all the other things you end up needing to give your attention to tends to really pull you in every direction until you don’t know where to turn. That’s why you could say I was pretty determined to shoot this look. It was dark and it was bloody dismal. The rain was dying to start pouring down and the sun was no where to be seen. However, not one to be beaten. I dragged my mother aka my blog tog out down the road to my favourite wall and stair case to capture some magic.
So it went pretty smoothly… we took a few shots on the stairs and then this random African man walked past and started to tell my mother how to hold the camera and continued to question her ability. To say he was rude was an understatement. He then stopped and put his bag down to inform us that he was now ‘supervising’ the shoot.
Okay. I told my mum to stop shooting… like where the hell did he come from and what did he want. See it so happened that he was a professional photographer and wanted to give us his card just in case I needed his services. Perhaps he should have taken several seats because I never asked for his assistance nor did I want it.
These photo sessions with my mum are our bonding time and I love the magic we create together. Unretouched, unedited and simply nice images capturing nice and well put together outfits. (If I do say so myself)
Although, it was a dismal day. We had a lot of fun shooting this look. I’m a major co-ordinate fan and had to snap this one up from Boohoo. The best bit was that it only cost £12 in their sale. I had my eyes on these Tassel sandals for a long time and patiently waited until they went down from £30 to £17.99. Thank you very much New Look! My Leather jacket is one purchase I will never regret. While in H&M in Austria, I set my eyes on this amazing suede and leather jacket which set me back £150 but believe me, it was worth it and I hardly see anyone wearing it which makes it even better. Last but not least is this absolutely gorgeous choker from ASOS. It’s bang on trend and only set me back £10. Overall, this look rocks and I can’t wait to actually wear it out on the town.
So now I’m going to take the time to flood this page with about 100 pics (major exaggeration) from this shoots because I love it, it’s been so long that I’ve been able to shoot a look and more vitally because I can.
I once again will reside to the fact that I don’t blog or vlog as consistently as I would like, but when I do…. it’s pretty dope.
