“Thank you all so much, I had such a great day. I love the photos!”
“Wow the images are gorgeous! Thank you so much!”
“I love them so much! I don’t know how I’m going to decide which ones to choose!”
August marked the first vintage makeover shoot in collaboration with Pin Up Curl and Bethany of The Vintage Beauty Parlour! And what a shoot it was!
It took place at a (top secret!) private location that we had access to here in the East Midlands, an authentic 1960s home!
How amazing do the ladies look?! All of them are more than giving professional pin up girls a run for their money, and most of the ladies had never had any sort of shoot before!
Here’s what some of them had to say about the experience –
“The makeover and photoshoot with Becky and the team was amazing. There was a lovely atmosphere at the venue – tea, biscuits and chit-chat were flowing. Everyone was really friendly and the makeover team were really helpful in deciding what worked (and what didn’t) for me. I felt very safe in their hands. Becky was great, she gave me excellent direction, telling how to pose, where my arms/hands/head/etc should be, all helping me get the best photos. When the previews came through I was thrilled. I am my own biggest critic, but I genuinely found it difficult to narrow it down. So many amazing photos! I’ve done a number of the makeover/photoshoot days and this was hands down my favourite experience. I would highly recommend Becky and her team to anyone wanting to do a more glamorous vintage shoot. You won’t be disappointed. Just make sure that you’ve got something fabulous lined up for the evening afterwards so that you can show off your amazing look!
“The experience was what I expected and more, I knew the day would be good. I trusted you to do your usual excellent work. I was just worried that I’d hate myself in the photos… but I needn’t have been concerned. The photos were fab! The venue was great and I found it with no problems. Hair and make up was great. In particular I liked that Sarah tried a style and was honest when she thought it didn’t work for me, so did something else”
“Such an amazing day! I would highly recommend Becky and the team to anyone wanting to do a makeover shoot. I absolutely LOVE my photos. Thank you for making me feel and look so glam!”
“The shoot location is reminiscent of an American film set and I felt like a vintage film star. Make-up and hair skilfully and beautifully done with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Becky is effortlessly professional and a naturally talented photographer, knowing how to capture your best features. I instantly felt at ease. The experience was even more than I expected it to be. I’ve never felt I’m very photogenic before so thank you for taking such wonderful photos of me. Everything about the whole day was brilliant, it is now firmly etched into my happy memory bank!”
“I think all of the ladies from the shoot look like film stars. I have never felt like I am very ‘photogenic’ before so thank you for taking such wonderful pictures of me”
As you can see from the photos, it’s not your ordinary ‘pin up makeover’ shoot. I looove natural light and avoid using anything but! This helps us create some really beautiful, flattering, and cinematic images full of glamour! Natural lighting teamed with the authentic setting makes for such a lovely combination of realness to the photos and our whole ethos behind the shoot is to be able to offer something completely unique to our clients unlike any other ‘make over’ shoots currently out there. There’s no scary intense and formal studio, or big lights shining in your eyes, it’s simply being in this wonderful environment and being made up to look like a real vintage starlet ready for your close up! It’s not about cheesy awkward poses, just looking and feeling like the fabulous women that you are and receiving some gorgeous photographs to hopefully remind you of this every time you see them. It’s all very relaxed with us all being based in one room in the house for styling, sat around a little table with tea and cakes before I take you off to various areas of the location for your session.
On hair and make up I chose two ladies that are pretty much the best in their field and well educated on all things vintage! I knew that they’d make our clients feel a million dollars. Our styling team consists of the super talented, Sarah Bloor of local vintage hairstyling business Pin Up Curl from Derby www.pinupcurl.co.uk and Bethany Jane Davies of Manchester’s The Vintage Beauty Parlour www.bethanyjanedavies.com
