Grimms Fairy Tales - Little Red Riding Hood Collection

Happy Valentines Day everyone!

Well as promised, I said I would reveal the theme of last week's photoshoot in good time and I can now share it with you.... Grimms Fairy Tales is one of my favourite books of all time and I wanted to do my vision of Little Red Riding Hood and put a bit of a Burton-esque twist on it. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

The shoot with Laura went so well on Friday, my only complaint was it didn't last long enough!!! I had so much fun doing the shoot but Laura was so brilliant that we got all the shots I needed really quickly. We were so lucky with the weather too, I wanted a really grey and miserable day but not raining, and thankfully thats exactly what we got. Lady luck was shining down on us too as just as we finished the sun decided to come out which would have ruined the shots if it had been earlier. Once again we got a few strange looks and comments when walking past dog walkers and fisherman, but brilliantly Laura's unfaltering enthusiasm for the shoot came into play and she was quick to ask the fishermen whether they'd seen any wolves nearby haha

Anyway I still have ALOT more editing to do (just narrowing down the selection for the collection is hard enough) but here are a few pictures to whet your appetite.

Would love to hear your comments..
