The Shoot

The Shoot: Pink and Blue

Being stuck in the house has given me a unique set of challenges as a fashion blogger and content creator. Normally at this time of year I would be ramping up my shoot production schedule; planning new locations and a whole series of shoots. As the weather gets nicer and warmer and sunrise occurs earlier every day, now is the time to do shoots. But we’re all stuck in our houses, with no chance of life returning to normal anytime soon. Not only have I felt the need to express myself creatively more so than usual, the way I would do that, creating shoots, has massively been curtailed.

While I  might no longer be able to go outside to do shoots, I’m lucky enough to have enough photographic equipment in the house to produce studio shoots. So, my dining room gets changed into a make-shift studio space. But I’m still left with the second issue, which is procuring clothes to shoot when shops are phyically closed, deliveries are being delayed, and sending for items just to shoot them seems a little frivolous.

In response to those challenges, I’ve created this shoot, which consists of items I’ve have in my wardrobe, and pieces I haven’t worn in many years. The idea behind the shoot was toi combine my two favourite colours for spring/summer, pink and blue, and create a series of outfits from those two colours. I also used some of the furniture in my house to create some set pieces, because it gets a little boring just standing in front of a white backdrop.

I’m actually really happy with the results; the clothes came out looking very striking, and having those extra set pieces around really helped in finishing off this shoot.

I’ll be creating another post in the coming days on how to shop the look for this shoot; because it seemed a little unfair otherwise. Some of the items here are at least 7 years old, and there’s no way anything like it would still be in the shops. Heck some of the brands have completely closed down in the time since! 🙂

Also, on my blue Bottega Veneta sandals. Since I got them six months ago they have absolutely blown up in popularity, so while you might have difficulty finding the real deal online, I linked as many really nice alternatives at a lower price-point below.

Eight years in, and still killing this fashion game. Now a mother, wife, professional-by-day and part-time blogger in between, I still love blogging, producing fashion shoots and curating this blog.
My interests lie in producing high editorial-style content, shooting in grand and unique locations, make-up shoots and doing more studio shoots that really push the boundaries.
I'm open to collaborations and ideas, so please message me.
