A trip into the borders and Galashiels found me emerging at the MaplehurstGuesthouse. This beautifully crafted gem of a location was to play host to a shoot with Karen Reid and her hats and fascinators.
Karen had arranged hair and 1 of the makeup artists and I had brought along Emma Motion as our other makeup artist. She had also arranged the shoot, booked the models and done all the groundwork and planning. It made for a fairly unstressed shoot for me, as all I had to do was turn up and shoot.
The 4 models, Fifi, Fiona, Sally and Ruth each had distinctive looks and after being pinned, clipped and tucked into various bridal and occasional dresses they were adorned with Karen's wonderful creations.
We shot inside the house and out in the gardens and I'm very happy with the early results. We all turned into pumpkins by 6pm and ran away home. Just under 14 hours with travel time. Some shoots are just worth the effort!
