Every now and again, when I have the time, I treat myself to a styled shoot just for me. I absolutely LOVE photography, but constantly struggle with work life balance, as it is just a demanding, time consuming job at times.. especially during wedding season! I regularly work 7 days a week, because I shoot and edit all by myself, along with the marketing, admin, networking, accounting, study, etc etc that goes along with running a successful photography business. It is so, completely worth it, but it does become overwhelming at times!
Part of what keeps me going, is finding the time to do styled shoots, because it allows me to be creative and shoot exactly how I want, and just for me!
Here's a few images from the shoot I did in Epping Forest in Autumn last year. I invited a couple of my most fabulous red haired buddies, as well as some gorgeous kids, to come and play in the forest. I used my fabulous and incredibly portable Godox lighting system and Magmod gels to shape the light and get a touch of those gorgeous red tones in their hair.
