Photo Shoot Backstage- Issue 2

Today was our first photo shoot for issue 2. The shoot took place at the editor's home in North London. The vintage decor within the living room certainly complimented the range of vintage clothing from Jenn's Boutique that the models wore.

We had two fantastic photographers who were the lovely Katherine Jones and Darren Ball. As soon as they arrived you immediately knew they were pros. Their passion and enthusiasm ensured that it would be a fantastic shoot.

Nadine Leighton was our fantastic make-up artist for the shoot. Her knowledge and experience meant we were able to achieve exactly the looks we wanted.

Our two models were Emma and Abigail- (Read all about them in the "Our models" section of our official website)

Emma modeled a selection from Jenn's Boutique and the fantastic pink spiritually influenced T-shirt by Marchello Eans from his Crying tears collection.
Abigail's clothing was styled together by Leila Dottin of Shout magazine and Pepper Okwesa, a fashion enthusiast. Abigail also modeled a selection from Jenn's Boutique which included some fantastic jewelry and accessories.
