Behind the scenes of our Spring/Summer Shoot & a peek at what’s to come!

We had our spring/summer photo shoot at the end of last year. Despite it being bitterly cold the ladies, with their sunny disposition, soon got in the mood for shooting summer clothes and the usual level of high jinks ensued!  Here’s a little unedited look at what we get up to behind closed doors seen though the lens of our photographer, Miss Rain.

Featuring our Modles: Frankii Wilde, Zara Ann & Little Gem.

Very Fetching!
It was a little chilly on set!  We’re nearly let Gem keep these on as they matched the outfit so well but unfortunately they didn’t quite have the Summer vibe we were looking for!
brrr!

Let Them Eat Cake!
Can’t complain too much when the shoot comes with free snacks! Try not to eat all the props ladies! ;D
Let them eat acke!

Show Us Your Muscles!
Frankii proves her training at the gym is starting to pay off! Gem gets a Brucey bonus for this pose 😉

Damsels In Distress!
Who will rescue our fair maidens?!

Channelling The Fonz!

What’s The Forecast For Summer?
Chance of rain? Windy?! We’re hoping it will be sunny!
whatever the weather

aww Frankii’s Getting Left Out!
Somehow Frankii missing out on the treats and she’s non too happy about it!

Behind the Scenes at the Miss Fortune Autumn/Winter Photoshoot!

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!

Gem likes to have fun with skirts!
Fun with skirts!

Frankii just likes to have fun!

Raising the roof!
The models think we do this for our own amusement but it’s really to get the perfect skirt shots with no hands in the way … honest!
Raising the roof!

Are you ready for your close up gem?!
Are you ready for your close up?!

It’s a rather hot day in the studio, as we give the lights a break it’s time for some silhouettes!
When the lights out ...

Back to business!

The best times are when we get the ladies to model together …

Raaaaw! Shove! They love each other really!
Best of friends

These have got to be some of my fav out-takes from the shoot!
Best of friends

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!

A rubber rat toy from the Halloween shoot made an unscheduled appearance in the shots of our classic Varsity cardigans! 
Game of Ratball anyone?!
Ratball!
Good job they’re good sports!

Setting up for some shots can be a little precarious! Careful, Miss Rain!
Steady!

Wrapping up the Halloween shoot! Yeeeaaaaah!
It's a wrap!

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!
http://www.buzzfeed.com/whitneyjefferson/12-ways-to-get-the-best-glamour-shot

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!

Glamour!

Well, I hope you enjoyed that as much as we did!!
