Here’s some behind the scenes photos from the Coldlilies shoot I did a couple of weeks back. These shots are from the instagram feed of Rosemary McCabe, who I love working with! We have teamed up on a number of photoshoots in the past and it is always a fun and interesting experience as she always regales me with interesting stories from twitter, the news or even her dog (who on this occasion had eaten a €20 note – haha, expensive taste!)
The shoot featured the stunning Juudit Siibak from Distinct Model Management, who has the prettiest features ever! The hair and make-up was kept very clean and with a slight nod to the early nineties with the brows being full and defined. Brian who isn’t pictured here, was kept tidy in the hair in a side sweeping coiffed, but his face had a five o’clock shadow. Skin was kept clean and fresh. I had also worked with Brian before on a fashion show.
The other team members I had never met before, but it is always fantastic to work with and meet new people. I am looking forward to seeing Sean’s shots as he is a very talented photographer, check out his website. The two owners of Coldlilies were also lovely. I was really happy to hear how they had totally changed their careers and decided to follow their passion having studied and worked in completely different jobs previous to starting the company. It is great that they are supporting Irish designers, so if you are looking for inspiration for Christmas Gifts be sure to pay them a visit.
