Just finished cleaning up after a fantastic test shoot with the lovely Leonie. She approached me a few days ago asking to do a vintage/pinup shoot. As chance would have it, I had a last minute cancellation this weekend and Leonie kindly stepped in.
They say that good things often come in small packages. Well in Leonie’s case, never a truer word has been spoken. She is a lovely-looking girl with a slim petite figure, thick natural hair that catches the light, and a tiny little waist that is simply exquisite for the corsetry that often goes with vintage/pinup.
Whilst vintage/pinup and the whole retro-fitness thing was new to her, she was very keen to learn. In fact, she set about the task with much energy and enthusiasm. She also has a wicked sense of humour and turned out to be thoroughly nice person to work with.
Only trouble was that our six hour shoot shot past in what seemed about twenty minutes! So we only got though a fraction of the costumes we picked out for her. But no matter. The outfits we did have time to try looked wonderful on her. We also hope this will be the first of many shoots – so that we will have a chance to try loads more costumes next time.
