Yrsa Ward from 20 Management was the perfect face for our Metallics beauty story with amazing make up artist Kirsten Murphy.

Gold, Bronze and Silvers were used. Got to play with some natural light and studio lights. 

Here the results:

aaaaand the WINNER is....

The winner of my 'Be you. You are beautiful' competition is.....


Here her beautiful answer:

I love that I’m quirky, I love that I’m flawed,
I love that my life will never be bored.
I don’t look like others; I don’t fit the mould,
But honey my body, can keep you from the cold.
I love that I’m curvy and not a size two,
Not to say that I’m gigantic and belong in a zoo.
My hair touches my shoulders just like little kids do,
Yes you guess right, I’m under the metre 2!
Pick me to win the shoot, I’m sure to entertain,
I’m humble and down to earth, very far from vain.
I look forward to your email, should I win this one,
Look forward to the announcement, good luck all this should be fun!

Beauty with Joyce

Suaad Dawood was one of the first make up artists I ever got to work with. After a while she decided to leave the beauty market and just do bridal make up. I was very sad when I heard this, as we did magic together. 
After a few years of no contact, I got an email from Suaad asking to do some beauty shots. I couldn't believe she was keen to come back into the industry and didn't hesitate to say no!

Our model Joyce Swenson from Full Circle Model Management brought beauty, elegance and poise to the table!
What a startling experience it was to work with her! An absolute natural and all round great person too! 

Here the results of our collaboration...

conversing with nature

Bianka aka Little Harlequin - a fun crazy German :)
It is still a mystery as to how we've met, however we got to do it proper at the Red Sofa Cafe a couple of weeks back.
We conversed, shared ideas, had some tea - an all around good 'first' meeting. As we chatted, it came up that we both love the outdoors and this was when I grabbed the opportunity of taking her 'hiking' to this gorgeous waterfall and placing her in front of my camera!

Nicole Grant's timing was impeccable for this shoot! A great make up and hair artist I worked with before. It all came together like it was meant to be. We got the best day of the week to shoot in.

Have a look at the pictures and let me know what you think :)
