February photoshoot


Catherine, Kelly and Lily being captured by Stu
Giving a leg up!

My lovely girlies

My very first blog, and what an exciting way to start.  On 17 February we had our new photo shoot in the grounds of the beautiful Lainston Country House hotel in Winchester.  My gorgeous daughter Catherine was modelling as usual, as well as a new addition to the team.....the stunning Lily Venus, who was only 13 years old on the day of the shoot and has subsequently turned 14!  Both girls were incredible, so professional and it seemed like they had been old hands at the modelling game.  My products were shot by Stu Cooper, from Cooper Photography, a Southampton based company which specialises in lifestyle shoots and wedding photography.  I was lucky enough to meet Stu at a show last year and immediately noticed his wonderful photographic style which seemed to fit perfectly with my branding.  He was brilliant, so laid back and very personable, it was easy to feel at ease with him, and this is reflected in the girls reaction to the experience.  They were buzzing!   The shoot only took a couple of hours and we packed so much in, constantly changing jackets and products to really show off my designs to the best.  Luckily help was on hand with Kelly Venus, mum of Lily and assistant manager at Pavilion in Winchester, where I have been showcasing some of my work.  Stu even got Kelly involved in the modelling, she was great too but I kept myself safely tucked behind the lens!  The weather was perfect too with a watery winter sun giving some stunning light conditions.  I just can't wait to see the results!

  1. Can't wait to see the results Tracy, how fun! I so wish I could afford professional photography ;) hehe, would make such a difference, yours always looks amazing! Hope your preparation for CL is going well - I have to admit, I'm glad I pulled out, I just don't feel ready for it, and I am pretty busy anyway! Good luck tho, there is a chance I will be coming up as a visitor, so I will defnitely come see you if I do! Have a lovely week, Jen xxx
