March Update

March has been very busy!  I have had shoots for magazine's including 'Glamour', shot in a studio in London and 'Bon Marche' shot on location in Margate.  A day spent shooting website and advertising images for Asquith Yoga also in a London studio. I have been lucky enough to work with a few celeb's this month too including Adam Hills, Jerry Hall, Michael Parkinson (he had his own Make-up artist), Kevin McCloud, and Professor Brian Cox.. As well as a lot of wedding trials, wedding make up's, special occasion make up's and make-up lessons. Phew!  I am definitely ready for an early Easter break!

For Mothers day I took my fabulous mum for a lovely champagne afternoon tea at Sopwell house followed by some shopping in St Albans.  It has been absolutely freezing and unbelievably we have had yet more snow at the end of March, so lots of cold winter walks with my doggies who absolutely love the snow and a lot of film nights this month snuggled in the warm by the fire.

Easter is going to be spent decorating as for the first time in year's I actually do not have any work booked in so I will be happily swapping my make-up brushes for paintbrushes!

A recent shoot...

On a bitterly cold Sunday at the end of February I did hair and make-up for a fashion shoot at the beautiful Wrest Park in Bedfordshire.

This story has a 1930's feel and sees the glamorous turn into the distressed.
