Twilight with Shay and Erin

Twilight with Shay and Erin

During the school holidays my niece Erin and her good friend Shay asked me to do a photo shoot for them. How could I refuse?

We traveled to Sydney’s Homebush Bay to a location which I had scoped out previously during a bike ride. We originally wanted to do a shoot in a forest with some balloons – the idea being for an overall washed out and drab look except for the balloons which would be colourful and vibrant.

So first stop was the local balloon shop for some nice multi coloured balloons. We took extra special care with the balloons on the drive to the location and the walk through the woods to ensure that none of them popped. After setting up for the shoot I tied the balloons onto my light stand and went about taking some test shots to get the lighting right. With the first gust of a strong wind we all looked back to see the balloons quickly taking rise into the Sydney summer sky. There was to be no balloons featured in my shoot that day. But that small oversight wasnt going to take the fun out of the shoot – so we proceeded with plan B. Plan B being the same as Plan A’s shoot but without the balloons – of course.

The look we ended up going for was a teen fashion catalogue crossed with Twilight (as in the movie). Im pretty happy with the look that we achieved and I have to say that my two models were simply superb and naturals! For their first real photo shoot they did a stunning job. Hope you Enjoy – and stay turned for Part II of the Shay and Erin shoot.. when we went back for some studio shots..

    What beautiful girls, and what a fantastic uncle you are to do this.
    I’m sure that they will treasure these photos – and must be feeling very glamourous and special right now. Well done girls!
