The model lives in Montreal and was in Vancouver for the holidays, so we arranged the shoot and planned the makeup, outfit and look. I got hold of some props including a couple Barbie’s at the local toy store – wow I didn’t know that there are so many Barbies! I also bought a long pink wig – I splurged and bought the higher quality wig for a little extra cost because I wanted it to look good in the photos. I have used cheaper wigs before and they are hard to use – the hair is too thin and frizzy! Now I own a long pink wig – so I’m sure it will appear in photoshoots again. I also got lollipops, bubbles, pink tulle fabric, tissue paper and bows.
On the day of the shoot I brought all the stuff and set up the lights while the makeup artist did her magic. I used a white seamless background and lit it with a strobe and pink gel. The model wore a sexy pink nightie and used the tulle for a skirt. The shoot was a lot of fun and the model was great. There were many photos from the shoot making it difficult to select a few for final editing!
We did not plan for this to be a Valentine’s Day theme, but looking at the photos, they are perfect for the occasion. Check out this set of photos from the shoot.
