On Thursday I was hired by a lovely family to photograph their daughters preparations to arrival for her Year 11 Prom as a special treat for her. She worked so hard during her GCSE's they thought she deserved this special treat after one her friends pointed out my in studio Prom package which is available for use after Prom (30 minute shoot in studio with 5 edited digital files and one 12"x8" professional print - £35) this gives you a chance to put your dress on again.
We decided to do something a bit different and photograph prep (hair & make-up) to arrival at the Prom. When I arrived at Mane Street hairdressers Louise was so excited as it was a surprise me showing up. After she'd finished having her doing I then went to the house for her make-up to be done and then finally putting the dress on. After Louise had put her dress on we did a few photographs outside near her home before I left t get to the Prom location in time for her arrival.
When Louise arrived in the Jaguar the door was locked and wouldn't unlock at first when the gentleman went to open it. We all had a right laugh at this moment but once the door was opened and her and her friend got out they both looked absolutely stunning. Neither of them told the other about their dress but the colour coordination was perfect. I did a few portraits of them both with sunglasses so it was a bit quirky as well as few normal ones before they went in to Prom and enjoyed themselves. I got the cutest thank you card from Louise the next day which made me smile as I love making people happy with my job.
Whilst I was at the Prom a few other parents asked me to photograph their children's arrivals but where I hadn't seen most of them since they were young I didn't recognise them so had to photograph most arrivals so I didn't miss their child. Send me an email for more details.
Here is a link to the gallery containing all the photographs from Louise's shoot as I have permission from her parents to have the gallery as public to share - CLICK HERE
Here is a link to some of mine and mum's favorites which have been used on the blog but as there was over 80 we liked only so many made the blog and the rest are in this gallery - CLICK HERE
The door was locked and there were a few difficulties getting it opened so we all had a laugh about the situation.
Once the door was opened the two girls got out looking absolutely stunning.
