As you can tell from the title of this weeks post, I had another minor problem with a shoot, this time instead of the police being called on us, being thrown out of a location or having no make-up artist we had a bit of trouble finding a model. At the last minute the one we had booked went into surgery and by the time we found someone else it was too late to shoot, so we postponed the shoot to the day after and as usual when something like this happens it seems to turn out for the best!
Me and Lydia, who I had previously worked with on the Seaside Town shoot (see the blog post here) have been trying to set up a shoot since then and this week we finally got round to shooting again. And instead of an on location shoot we did a bit of studio stuff in her flat. Using artificial lighting is still a bit new to me and this was only my third ever shoot using them, despite the fact that a guide I did for studio lighting had been published... no one needs to know that though do they? :P
On Thursday morning I made my way to Brighton station to meet with the beautiful Toni from Leni's Model Management. It was her 2nd day in the UK after flying in from Hong Kong and previous to that America! Some people live exciting lives! We made our way to Lydia's flat to being the set up for the shoot. Lydia along with and her friend Lizzy both styled the shoot with some beautiful pieces of jewellery and headpieces. And Lydia did a fantastic job with the make-up and hair.
After a few hours and five looks later we were done for the day and left with a huge pile of awesome photos!
Here are a couple of behind the scenes photos and a little pack of camera preview from one of the looks. :)

As linked at the beginning of the post, the shoot I did a few months back along with Lydia, Torie and Becca @ Leni's along with pieces by Geeks & Stitches was published in Coco Magazine and this week my copy arrived in the post! It's always so exciting to see my photos actually printed out!
