Trying to split a room into a dressing room,come spare room, come office can be sometime quite a challange.But, at the moment I sit in the corner and work, with walls dressed in fashion magazine pullouts.My inspiration. I sit in what is essentially a giant mood board. And as much as i love my little office,come spare room, come dressing room when I pulled round the corner to see this view, I thought that maybe I could swap my fashion covered walls for this. A view of crystal blue sea. Well, for a few days at least!
After thinking about it – seriously – we knew that it was never really going to work. But, he was just too cute to say no. ( A running theme here) So, just under 2 weeks ago, we picked him up from his house and drove him to ours whilst his real owners are on holiday. The boys didn’t think it was the best decision we have ever made to say the least……. Say hello to our new temporary lodger – Jonesy!
I cannot wait to show the rest of this shoot! x
After every payment, which was weekly I put a section away for them. Knowing that it would take me a couple of months. But I wanted them so bad, I was willing to wait. I had to. Every time I would go Leeds I would go into the shop, just to look at them.Again and make sure they were still there. I’m not quite sure where I thought they were going. Looking back now, the Buffalo shoes were a style disaster( yes, I am referring to the same kind the spice girls wore)… I am pretty sure that yesterdays purchase will be a better one!
Its taken a long time. But I am oh so happy…
I remember seeing her for the first time. We had arranged to meet at Patisserie Valerie, it was kind of like a blind date, in a weird way! I stood at the counter and ordered drinks, she stood a few people down in the que with her mum. At the time however we didn’t know how each other looked,so i was staring in a ‘are you here to meet a photographer‘ kind of stare. I lowered my bags holding wedding albums to give a hint, and after a nervous question of identity we laughed, felt relieved and sat down for coffee and green tea.
Shortly after our meeting,I was booked. I was happy,so happy i popped a bottle of bubbly. You see this was the first booking that I had from an outsider, someone who didnt already know me. But someone who saw in me potential. And for this I am more grateful than you know.
When I met with Lee and Michelle today it was like meeting old friends. Not just clients. As we parted Michelle gave me a thank you card.. But really Michelle, I would like to Thank you. x
