My best friend Heidi is getting married in June; and I’m going to be a bridesmaid.
This means (that among other things) I will have to wear a dress, and probably heels and it’s more than likely that I’m going to have to have my photograph taken – something that I’m not exactly keen on (I’m told that this is actually quite typical of most photographers) and so I’ve been starting to panic.
Combine this with the fact that next month I will be moving half-a-world away for a while (and so most bridesmaid duties will be accomplished via Skype and email) and there can only one natural response.
Oh. Dear. God.
My new years resolutions this year are:
1.) To take more pictures of things and people that matter to me (nothing new there, I try to do this every year)
2.) To try and stop hiding behind the camera so much (in other words, actually be IN some pictures for once).
3.) I’m also planning to do a Project 365 (or this year Project 366) as February marks the start of an adventure (both photographically and personally) for me.
It turns out that neither Heidi or I are particularly keen on having our picture taken so when we discovered that Wowcher were offering a photoshoot for 2 in London at the Factory Studio in Covent Garden; we decided to throw caution to the wind and have a go.
Armed with some glad-rags and a sense of humour we headed to London for a Makeover, some Champagne what actually turned out to be a really great photoshoot; we had a lot of fun (and even got a couple of images to take away with us).
Here are a couple of my favourites (yes I do have a camera in my hand for one of them, but it was right at the end of the shoot):
