Back in May I held a very special photo shoot with a huge different: not one, but 5 very beautiful bloggers were my models. Together, with the very talented Kitty Gallannaugh we had a lovely shoot on a beautiful Spring day and I only wish you could all have been there! This collection is incredibly special to me because it was something so different for me, and a collection I poured my heart and soul into for some truly wonderful, very special girls. Each blogger was gifted a custom head piece which they modelled on the day and above are some of the photos which you’ve probably seen a million time on my Facebook I know, but oh aren’t they just so pretty?!
Bloggers are a domineering force today and since I started Beauxoxo I have been overwhelmed by the support and friendship they give me. When I release a new collection they’re there tweeting their little hearts out, they share away my posts on FB,they rock my pieces in ways I never imagined in their outfit post and they’re basically part of a community that I find really special and I wanted to find a way to say thank you personally.
One day I had this thought on my way for a first shoot with the wonderful Kitty, who regularly works with bloggers as her models, and it got me thinking how fun it would be to have a photo shoot for some of the bloggers who have supported me so kindly by treating them to a photo shoot where they model pieces I designed exclusively for them. Kitty is such a magical photographer and I just knew she would be perfect for this little project, and additionally I just knew any girl would treasure any photos by her.
When it came down to picking bloggers I was utterly, utterly spoilt for choice and the aim was to pick girls that all had their individual style and look. I then designed their dream hair creation as a thank you, and we had the most perfect spot in London so that we could all soak up the summer sunshine amidst a blanket of blossom- perfection!
Thank you so much to Kitty for her sweetness, talent and just sheer magicalness- you always make my daydreams a reality! And of course a huge thank you to my wonderful blogging superstars for wanting to be apart of this and for being so kind and supportive. You’re all the sweetest, loveliest girls I could possibly hope to meet and I hope you can treasure these photos forever!
But now lovely readers, it’s your turn to be treated! How would you like to win one of the goody bags I gave the bloggers? Sounds good, right? Well, all you need to do is enter below, good luck!
