Look out for all the new Spring/Summer styles!

Here’s a fun look behind the scenes at what we get up to when shooting the studio images for our catalogue/website! This was the shoot for the upcoming Autumn/Winter 2013 collection.
We were shooting at Miss Rain Photography‘s studio in Nottingham with our regular ladies Miss Zara Ann, Frankii Wilde & Little Gem. We’ve all worked together lots in the past and shooting together is always a hoot as everyone has a great sense of humour! I really look forward to these days 🙂
Here are some, very much unedited, shots for your viewing pleasure!
The best times are when we get the ladies to model together …
We were also planning ahead to Halloween with a Halloween themed pin ups shoot! Can not wait to publish the final shots from this set later in the year!
Oh, just one last thing, how could we forget this ….
Right before the shoot this post on Buzzfeed came to light “12 Ways To Achieve The Very Best Glamour Shot”, we all laughed so hard at this!
Little Gem decided she wanted to do her own homage to these “Glamour” shots …..
Play with your collar! Wrap yourself in something glamorous! Show some flesh!
Work it Gem, the camera loves you daaaaahling!
Well, I hope you enjoyed that as much as we did!!
