Alice In Wonderland Inspired Photo Shoot.

A couple of weeks back now my sister in law and I had the idea of doing a photo shoot themed around Alice In Wonderland. We got carried away with the idea sourcing all kinds of props and even making some (see the paper bouquet below... that caused so much stress!). My mum helped to sew a huge blue bow on a dress, and playing cards on to a tulle skirt.

Then we decided to get a make-up artist involved and I knew this project would be right up Charlie Ross' street. Both of us are currently in that awkward, wanting clients but needing more to show for ourselves stage in our "careers" so collaborating on portfolio shoots is perfect.

Sometimes it's nice to just shoot for yourself, which I see this project as. I used to arrange shoots like this a lot, wandering into the woods and clambering on trees to create some atmospheric pictures. It was good to go back to that experience photographing something purely for the enjoyment of it and not worrying about whether it would bring me potential clients. Although, if I do get clients who want themed shoots I'll be over the moon! They're so fun to photograph.
