Backstage - Audrey Grace

About a month ago I released six previews of my photographs for Audrey Grace Boutique. It was such a fun, beautiful and exhausting shoot and I've been really excited to share the backstage photos with you all ever since.

Throughout the day of the photoshoot, Rosie (our styling genius, see her work here) doubled up as a behind-the-scenes shooter. Yesterday I finally found time to sit down and go through all of the photos we took of the moments in between and during shots. Most of the photographs you see below were taken by Rosie Taylor and all were edited by me. 

Thanks to Rosie for capturing the backstage laughs we had that day! And thanks again to the wonderful team who made this shoot so much fun :] I hope you like the photos :]
