I thought I'd kick this off with a little "how I plan a shoot" style post.
Next week I'm hopping on a train to Crown & Glory HQ for a few days to shoot their S/S13 look book. I shot the autumn/winter one last year (you can see the photos here) and it was a dream! This time around to embrace spring and summer we're going for a fun, fresh and dreamy inspired shoot. Think pretty pastels, lots of tulle and big smiles.
I have a folder on my computer full of inspirational photos, but with the addition of Pinterest it makes planning so much easier, and it fills my computer hard drive with joy that it doesn't have to save hundreds of photos all the time!
At the beginning stages of any shoot I always think of key words that I'm going to be inspired by, I also spoke to Sophie to get a good understanding of what she's after. Then we started up a shared Pinterest board so we could both pin things that we like. After that it's a case of searching for certain words, looking to some of my favourite photographers and ripping up copies of Vogue and various other fashion magazines.
You can see the Pinterest board here, and I've posted a few of my favourites below. (NB: I don't own the copyright to any of these images)

I haven't blogged in well over a month, and I guess in a way it comes down to me being so sucked into my university project that I haven't actually done any shoots! So I'm going to make this more lifestyle & photography orientated. Give you all a little insight to my day to day life, things I get up too and room tours. I also want to post more photography hints and tips, actions to share with you and previews into how I plan shoots, behind the scenes and editing techniques.
I'm feeling so full of inspiration and joy this year, I hope this blog can be a fun way to give something back.
