It’s not often you really feel like a negative has been turned into a positive. When I first arrived at Heythrop Park (where I was married!), Oxfordshire, for a model photo shoot, all our plans of shooting inside the gorgeous venue were shattered due to unforeseen circumstances. Moodboards, looks and ideas – all out the window.
However… when you have quite a talented and hard-working team of individuals on board, things will seemingly work out for the better!
I used plan B of making the most of the sunny weather and taking shots outside in the surrounding gardens, even using the venue as a backdrop. Pierangela, the extraordinary make-up and hair stylist, worked insanely quickly and came up with 3 strong looks for the lovely Sara Hafez, who in turn, flowed with such timeless poses at every click of the camera. Truly the best small team a photographer could ask for, despite challenges!
A special mention to Face On‘s very own Richard Sumner (partner to Sara), who was just a top lad and looked after our backs as we shot away.
I’m extremely happy with these images, and very proud to share them here.
