The photoshoot


OK, here goes.  Bear in mind that these were all taken as low res images with my camera in between styling, carrying bags and digging people out of the mud!  They are in no way representative of the FAB pics that Marianne and Barry took. 


Lou won’t be happy with this first one but lets get it out of the way first – we made her climb a tree, we did help her down afterwards though honest.  Barry probably has sone great ones of me trying to help her balance, we were both laughing too hard though.  I’ll post an equally embarrassing one of me if Marianne and Barry did get one, I promise.


See how sunny it was for us?  The sun was streaming in through the trees and made for some interesting shadows.  It was pretty cold though and we tried to keep Jo our model warm by alternating the long and short sleeved shots.  Kind aren’t we?


Lou was chief stylist and I was chief bag carrier.  This is one of my favourite garments that we had this time around, apart from the cover cardigan that is.


Here is Marianne with her lovely assistant, I didn’t get a photos of his Cobblestone sweater but I should have done, it was fab.


My poor living room had a quick makeover for some of the detailed shots, good job I tidied up quickly that morning isn’t it?  Although the look of horror on my face when Lou asked if they could take one of the photos on my bed was apparantly priceless, there was no way anyone was seeing my bedroom – all the junk from the lounge was piled up on it!


Jo liked the photos of the felt bag.  Something to do with the fact that she got to wear her coat I think?

So there you have it, a wee behind the scenes look at our day in the forest.  We had a lot of fun and I cant wait to see the proper photos.

    It was such a funny day, I’m still scraping the mud out of my shoes. Bless Jo, she was such a star and very friendly. Marianne and Barry did a fab job.
