17 Feb Fashion shoot with Hollie
You can never be overdressed or overeducated – Oscar Wilde
This is my second shoot with the beautiful Ottawa based model, Hollie. Hollie is a lot of fun to work with. Her trade mark is her beautiful natural curly red hair, pale complexion and freckles. But my favourite physical trait of hers is her beautiful green eyes. Looks aside, she has a lot of personality, works hard on her trade and is very friendly. Carolyn did the styling for this session. I requested a braid over her forehead but the rest of the styling was Carolyn’s choice. As you can see Carolyn did an amazing job.
I bought that dress she is wearing in the photos above from a fashionista on Instagram. I loved the 90s feel to it and the soft pallete. It knew it would look amazing on Hollie and am super excited to have photos of her in it. I have so much fun buying second hand clothing for shoots. The added bonus is I can pick any size, colour and I don’t have to try it on. Amazing!
The second dress Hollie is wearing was a Value Village find. I loved the fabric, colour and style of the dress. It has been sitting in my closet for over a year so it’s nice to finally have a change to photograph it. After the shoots I usually give the dresses to the models because in most cases I won’t be reshooting them and I won’t be wearing them myself. Only vintage pieces I keep.
I love the green on green combo. It makes me so happy.
