These past couple of weeks have been MAD. Like M.A.D. With capital letters. And exclamation marks.
Shoots have been running wild, dotting my schedule more frequently than the spots on a leopard. And the weather has been CRAZY?! It has totally been spinning my weeks haywire. So I am officially apologizing profusely if my posts have been erratic, if shoots have been moved around, if my emails have been even more topsy turvy (ALL will be replied by end of wednesday), and for anything else that has been out of the norm. The crazy will subside in the not too distant future, so hang in there with me :)
Anyhow, the weather hasn't been entire cruel :) God recently opened the skies long enough so we could take a little trip out of the busy in the city, and into the tranquility of autumn in its all its splendour for what I love to call a "Just Because" session. You know, because I am a HUGE believer that you should never need a special reason to take photos. Life is amazing in itself, and to be able to document it, document you at various points along its colourful spectrum is reason enough...
So several months ago, Jo and all her friends write in to me, to ask if they could get their shots taken. And instead of settling just for a 'typical' headshot session, I asked the girls if they were up for doing it JSP style - that is, with a slight fashion twist. Because, seriously, as a girl myself I think we girls don't have enough opportunities to feel and look fabulous. To feel beautiful. To dress up and look gorgeous. And what better opportunity to express your fabulousness than in a "Just Because" session right?
So I asked the girls to get their hair and makeup done, and then put together 2 outfits each (one dressy outfit, and one funky casual outfit) which expressed their style and personalities. Our aim was something feminine, romantic, with a touch of vintage. I couldn't love them more for listening to my advice, and for having such fabulous taste, because here is what ended up in the camera:
Thank you so much girls for a fabulous afternoon! It was perfect and I had the BEST time :D I hope these images made you smile as much as they made me smile :)
