I love these soft, romantic images taken by Keith Cooper at WhiteSpaceStudios in Chesham, just before Christmas. I’d recently bought a transparent hooped underskirt and teamed it with a vine of pink flowers, which I thought could look really cute and dainty. We set up the lighting to shoot at the bright wall behind me, with large bounce boards at the front to reflect at my face and body, whilst the light shone through illuminating my skirt and hair, resulting in a lovely ethereal look.
I think there’s a real feeling of purity and innocence here. I kept my make-up pretty natural, but added extra pink blush and lip colour to enhance the girlieness. I wonder if I should have smiled a bit more, but I quite like the dreamy withdrawn expression, if I remember rightly we had calm classical music playing whilst we shot, it’s always interesting to see if that translates to the pictures, I really love shooting to evocative music.
