studio life

Okay, so you will all know me well enough by now to know the love I have for Shelley and Ricky from Ten21 Photography (dorky amounts), so when I decided to get my first ever headshots done for my new studio I chose their little faces and camera skills. Well, I was so over the moon with them I can't even cope. Not only are they amazing people but true professionals. Shelley made me feel so at ease and managed to capture my personality perfectly with her camera. The images of my studio totally exceeded my expectations and it was so lovely to have Shelley and Ricky's fresh eyes capture what is now my wee hair haven. 

If any of you out there are looking to get new head shots and update your old fussy images, please give Ten21Photography a shout. You will NOT be disappointed, I promise!!

 Last year I had the honour of creating the lovely Georgia Pinks bridal hair for her and her beautiful bridal party. Georgia chose to get married in Larchfield Estate and everything about Georgia and Chris's wedding was stunning! Georgia went to The White Gallery in Newry and here she found her dream dress. All links are on the One Fab Day real life wedding feature.  Click this link and see for yourself how amazing Georgia and Chris's wedding really was!!! http://bit.ly/Larks-at-Larchfield

Georgia and Chris's wedding was captured by the fabulous  www.wedabelle.com I think you'll agree when you visit the links to both One Fab Day for their wedding feature and Wedabelle website that they truly rocked it!

On Wednesday 8th March, which just so happened to be International Women's Day, I got together with an amazing group of talented ladies and one lucky man, who was given the "honorary" woman title *giggles* to showcase Archive 12's beautiful bridal collections.

Claire the founder and owner of Archive 12 put together a beautiful shoot to capture her stunning unique range of bride and bridesmaid dresses and head pieces.

Kat Mervyn and her beautiful little daughter Juno (who may I say is a complete dote and stole the show with her cuteness) captured the collection with her creative photography skills and as always totally blew me away with her vision and ability to capture detail and light. Carl our "honorary" woman for the day runs his own cinematography business called Ball and Wolf. Not only was he an absolute delight to be around but his filming was stunning. I am super excited to see the end results from this shoot.

I got to work alongside hair & makeup artist Maria Gorman, I created the hair for the shoot and she did the makeup and I think you will agree when you see the final images that she totally rocked it! Maria's amazing at what she does and at only 22 she is one to watch out for. Claire chose the perfect model from IAM Models Agency, the beautiful Kamile. She was such a natural and great to work with. It really was a great day shooting.

my haven for your hair

As you'll all know by now little old me is finally opening up on my own. I have wanted to create a wee studio of loveliness for sometime now and took the plunge. It is in Portview Mill and my studio is situated on the first floor in a114.  I wanted to create a wee haven for you and your hair. Hopefully my vision will come together and you will all love it as much as I do. After years of trying and testing different products and ranges I have come across two brands that I totally love and they are Maria Nila and Davines. Both companies are Vegan and Vegan friendly and are free from sulphate and paraben. Their packaging is carbon neutral and I just want to try to help the environment as much as possible. I'll be using the Davines colour range which is also vegan friendly and made from naturally sourced ingredients. My studio will not only be there for my clients and brides, but it'll be my office too which is great as I can then move all my work out of my home and have the two separate. 

For my bridal section I'm aiming to create a more personal atmosphere. Bridal appointments will only have my brides and their chosen bridal team present. This way we can talk all things your wedding and we won't get disturbed by anyone. It will be our own wee wedding hair haven.

I will be taking my first client on Thursday 9th March and my studio will be officially open from this date. EEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think I may be the most excited person in the whole universe these days! I may also be the first lady ever to combust from excitement, so if that does happen, please just follow my little dream on and keep my wee studio life alive hehehehe.

To all my peeps, I love you and I cannot wait for you all to see my wee vision that is ....
