This was a fashion shoot. Partly my brain child. Well, more of a collaborative effort 🙂 At first it was just going to be flappers, but then my friend got a floofy dress. So I decided it would be a mishmash of decades! Partly flappers-inspired, and partly Betsey Johnson/50s-inspired. All awesome though ;D We were shooting downtown, and had 2 make up artists help out (with make up and hair). Holy moley, doing hair and makeup takes a LOT of time! Pretty sure we spent more time on hair/makeup than we did actually on the shoot 🙂 Hee hee. OKAY. On to the photos. I’ve split it up into 2 posts, since I narrowed it down to 53 of my favs. 53? Yah. Haha. (I suck at choosing :/)
Here’s Liz, workin’ her magic!
And Vinnie doing makeup too! 🙂 If this were left up to me, the results would be pretty horrific. Thanks, my lovely MUAs.
Oh. We did makeup/hair at Liz’s friend’s house. And they had a cat. MEOW. Super cute.
Caroline was a flapper girl 🙂 Doing the Charleston. (Well. None of us actually KNEW the Charleston, so we improvised…)
Leigh, seriously workin’ it.
April was more 50s inspired. 🙂 I am in LOVE with her Betsey Johnson dress.
And Elena! (Regulars will know that Elena makes quite a few blog appearances, haha). This shoot was also partly her idea! 🙂 Yay.
Love this pose. (Showing off the ring, clearly!)
🙂 I love walking shots.
And twirling shots are fun too!
I really love this one! This pose was totally Leigh’s idea!! (Leigh shoots a fair bit of concert photography in Vancouver! Her website here)
These 2 gave me attitood ALL day. (Not to be confused with attitude. They are very sweet :))
We got SO many stares and double-takes in the street! Haha. (Note: van driver has his hand out the window. Trying to photobomb!)
Haha. I love this one. It’s a super cute photo, for one. And, you can see the girl doing a complete double-take. And the “Super G” truck river sticking his ENTIRE upper body out the window. I laughed SO hard when I came across this photo whilst editing!!
Okie doke, that’s it for Part 1. You’re just gonna have to wait a couple days for Part 2!
