Photoshoot for Hannah belle garlands.


I had the pleasure of shooting with the super-talented Hannah Parkes of Hannah belle 

Hannah creates all her gorgeous hair accessories to order. I have even bought some of her pieces for my portrait work including some beautiful small ones that I plan to use in a shoot with my nieces. Naturally, I was delighted when she asked me to work with her on a shoot for her webpage and advertising. We met for coffee and went through the details and I got an idea of the style she wanted. I explained I am a real fan of the Pre-Raphaelite style as is Hannah so I just knew we were going to get along!

A lot of Hannah’s pieces are ideal for weddings.

I think this Summer, every festival-goer should wear a Hannah belle garland.

Hannah’s hair bands are just perfect for this 1920’s style…

I particularly enjoyed meeting her models for the day: Hannah’s friend Stephanie and her daughter Alarna. Both were absolutely wonderful to work with, quick to change outfits and even helped out with light reflectors or fans when requested. A big thank you to you ladies!

Hannah styled the girls herself with beautiful dresses she sourced especially for her shoot. Doing the hair and make-up herself also..I’ve never seen anyone so busy! I half expected her to take the camera from me and do the photography too so that I could have sat back. Hannah knew exactly what she wanted from her images and had a huge input in the way her shoot went. I loved working with her and look forward to working with her on future projects.
