When ever I do a photo-shoot I sometimes like the behind the scene's pics even more than I love the actual shots... they are so natural, so raw and show all the blood sweat and tears that go into a shoot like this. This shoot has been a long time coming coz I have wanted to do a photo-shoot with Brinkley ever since I laid eyes on DEM BROWS! She heads off to Hawaii in the next couple of weeks to do some more super hero work saving our environment so this shoot was a whirlwind of texting back and forth to try and fit it in before she puts on her cape and leaves her home turf.
Millie (hair and make-up boss) and I crammed into a tiny little regional plane (cups of tea and minties complimentary) and headed up to Port Lincoln where Brinkley and Ty have the cutest little zen house I ever did see. They don't have a TV, they have a mattress on the floor and Brinkley's couch is a yoga matt that forever resides in the living room. Perfection.
Hair and make-up began at 7am huddled next to a tiny little blow heater with a brief of natural and BIG BROWS. Millie (also someone I have wanted to work with for years) smashed it. Oh and not only is she a gun on H&M but she took most of these BTS shots. Girls got skills!
Having Ty as part of this shoot was just a bloody bonus (a smokin hot hot bonus), he is not only a natural behind the lens but he serenaded us via saxophone and guitar whilst we were in hair and make-up, he drove us all around Port Lincoln and scouted some stunning locations AND he makes a mean coconut chai tea!
Great team, great shoot. Can't wait to show you the real deal!
