I have shot with Kellie a couple of times and found her a pleasure to work with. In the exchange of ideas Kellie sent me a photo of a guy on the beach with balloons. I immediately knew I wanted to shoot something like this however felt I neededto purchase a small trampoline to allow for me to create the illusion of Kellie lifting off in flight. Well like so many shoots the planning and the execution are two different things. We have suffered unusally wet weather this winter so to have a sunny day is a bonus, arriving at the beach to find an enormous swell, beach errosion and an incoming tide..hmm fail.
We had fun anyway and an incoming tide meant I was unable to lay on the sand to get exactly the shot I wanted. Make up artist Cortney Bridges did a fantastic on Kellie’s makeup, she looked absolutely gorgeous and the red,orange and yellow ballons with a nice blue sky, it all came out well. I orginally got a rainbow dress but being a strapless dress and whilst it looked great on the hanger just somehow did not do Kellie justice. So we went with the yellow top and black leggings I had picked as an alternative outfit. Here is a selection of shots from the day I will post a few more once I have done the necessary photoshop work .
