So I hope you are all enjoying my new photos & videos
I thought that in advance of my trip to Dubai In September I would get some new photos & videos taken
It’s my pet hate having photos taken but it’s a necessary evil I try to do 2 – 3 shoots a year so that I have a recent photo along with my selfies that I have been experimenting with recently
This time I decided that I would arrange 2 separate photo shoots one with the usual lovely photographer that I have worked with many times in Bristol and on the recommendation of a friend London glamour photographer as a jointly shared location
So on the day of the shoot was up at the crack of dawn and hit the Rd to London
The location that we picked for the photoshoot was amazing.It reminded me of a 1970s style porn film – or a very glamorous swinging pad. It was a warehouse-style loft that from the outside looked like nothing special but inside was absolutely amazing and perfect for photoshoots. it was a real original top-notch designer apartment that I loved. The attention to detail from the funky sofas and stairs to the professional punch bag hanging from the rafters this place was totally amazing
I couldn’t wait to get started and loved have a professional make up artist do my make up for me
4 hours later every inch of my body was aching in places that I didn’t think was possible. I felt like I had been on a mini Bootcamp.
Stretching, arching my back, sticking out my bum & boobs and trying to relax at the same time while trying to balance on 4-inch heels is bloody hard work.
I felt like it was an adult game of twister the calves in my legs were aching so much I could hardly stand up straight without wanting to fall over and I nearly did several times.
Thankfully the photographer has the patience of a saint and was wonderful with me.
I kept getting the poses he wanted me to do wrong, but to his credit he was brilliant and the makeup artist was fantastic always ready to retouch my make up
I honestly think it was the hardest four hours I’ve spent in a long time Even beets my boot camps I don’t know how professional models do it for a living. My legs and bum were still aching on the train journey home and when I arrived back home I literally just crashed out and slept
But the 4 hours of aching has been worth it as I got some amazing pictures
Some of the images were that good they needed absolutely no retouching at all
So I’m really really chuffed and will defiantly be seeing this photographer again but I think I will do a few yoga classes in advance so that I’m all stretched out
