02 Nov Beauty Shoot with Hollie
Beauty shoots are my absolute favourite types of shoots. I love close up photos of people’s faces with creative and beautiful makeup. I love interacting with the model to come up with the best poses for their face shape and getting the expression that would make the photo pop. I genuinely love the whole process.
For this shoot, I recruited the talented Raadhaa for makeup and hair. I adore Raadhaa and her spunky nature. Her makeup skills are top notch and she is great with helping and directing the model on set. In the summer it’s hard to connect to do fun shoots because of the wedding season but when we do, we get amazing photos. She suggested we work with a natural red haired model named Hollie. I hadn’t heard of her before this. When she sent me her picture I was all in. Hollie is a very beautiful and unique model. She has gorgeous green eyes and long curly red hair. We did two different sets. Unfortunately Raadhaa couldn’t come to the shoot, but Hollie and I had a ball.
For this shoot I used my Canon 5D mark IV and my kit lens (24-105mm). I used an Elinchrom BRX 500 and a large Elinchrom octobox. I like to keep my shoots pretty simple. I hope you enjoy our work. To check out more of my team’s work, click the links below.
