Fall Shoot themed shoot

I don't know what is about Autumn but there is something about this time of year that I've always loved.  So I jumped at the chance to take 'Fall' themed portraits at a children's fashion show. The look I was going for was Vanity Fairs answer to Autumn chic...with kids. Inspired by many an Annie Lebrowitz shoot, I've also want to try out these vintage style backdrops from Schmidli. The props and styling were a collaboration with Rosie Axford Design.

Ellie and Annie

My first season of fall shoots is under way, starting with the beautiful Birdwell girls. Ellie and Annie's mum (also an Amy) were a dream to work with. I'm always encouraging mums to think outside the box and allow their creativity to run wild. Amy designed an Alice and Wonderland inspired tea party scene. The girls wore dresses from I love Gorgeous that complimented the colours of the flowers Amy had hand made. The girls had tea with their toy sheep, darted in and out of the bushes catching faux butterflies and pushed each other on the swing. The magical LA golden hour was out in full force and we finished the shoot with a joy ride round the golf course.
