Lost Kingdom

When I asked Bexie back in November how wild she was prepared to go for the sake of a photo she responded "I love wild the wilder the better...GO WILD!!". And wild we did go. On December 1st, with the help of Fiona Brunt, Bexie was transformed into a water queen and was sent for a dip in the ever so chilly waters of the river Severn. How she then climbed a hill dressed as a fairy for our second shoot of the day I do not know. Keep a lookout for that one on the blog soon!

Model: Bexie Archer
Make up: Fiona Brunt

Week two of my 52 week project reminded me of all the things I dislike about shooting self portraits. Remembering that reminded me of why I started this project in the first place - to overcome all of those things. So (feeling brave) here is a selection of the images I took the day I shot my week two picture. The theme was red and the project is entitled Let's Get Creative 2014 (join me and many others on our adventure here).
