A few weeks ago in her lovely studio in Farringdon I met with the amazing jewellery designer Miwako Yoshioka. Miwako is such a lovely and welcoming person and over a cup of green tea she showed me the stunning pieces I would be wearing. Each piece is so delicate and beautiful and I was so excited to be modelling them! I adore small intricate jewellery so Miwako's collection was a dream. Whilst admiring the jewellery, Miwako told me about the vintage theme for the shoot and I almost squealed with excitement. The awesome Terri O'Connell created these fantastic vintage makeup looks with a modern twist. Terri was so much fun to work with, with her infectious personality and flawless makeup skills, she also created wonderful hairstyles in a matter of minutes! The beautiful photos were taken by the fabulous Karin Xiao. Karin was really great to work with and creates gorgeous effortless photos with natural light, she is the photographer for many of the BARK jewellery collections and you can see why Miwako uses her again and again! I had a really perfect day shooting with this team and the giraffe (who's name escapes me). If you were in Paris during fashion week you may have seen the look book with these photos in!

On a rare sunny day a few weekends ago I was lucky enough to shoot with the fantastic Sophie Ellen Lachowycz in her beautiful sunlight studio and out on location. Sophie is most definitely one of the sweetest people you will have the pleasure of meeting let alone work with and her passion for her work really shows, constantly switching from digital to film cameras creating stunning and diverse photography, mixing delicate natural feels with high fashion. Sophie along with taking these images, styled the shoot. The wonderfully unusual pieces are from Sanctus and Louise McKay. The perfect hair and make-up looks were created by the lovely Julie Flatman from MissSweetie Pie Makeup Artistry and Beauty. Julie is such a warm and friendly person, whilst doing my make-up she made me feel so relaxed it felt like I was having a spa treatment. She gave brilliant advice on products and skincare and showed an amazing knack for creating natural looks. Both Sophie and Julie are the most calming people I have ever worked with and after spending the day shooting with them I felt more relaxed than I thought possible. I had so much fun and I really cannot wait to work with them again! Here are some of my favourites.
