Girls are great, don't get me wrong. But when you have eight of them that you have to organise, things can get a little tricky.
At the very beginning of February (gives you some indication into how late this post actually is) the lovely Monique asked me to photograph a group of eight gorgeous girls who are competing in Miss Croatia Geelong later in the year.
I loved capturing each girl's individual personalities. We took two photographs of each girl; a formal picture in the beautiful botanical gardens and a more street savvy/grunge look which we shot in various laneways around the Geelong CBD. The laneways around Geelong are so interesting and diverse!
I've compiled a small collection of the street savvy photographs for your enjoyment. I really had a lot of fun playing with the light in some amazing locations.
Thank you Monique for trusting me and hiring me for such an awesome job and thank you to the eight amazing girls for being patient with the hot and very sunny weather and making the day a great one! Thank you also to Jess and Marijana for doing the hair and makeup!
I try not to have favourites when I shoot but I loved Ivana's look and her face is stunning.
The location I shot Emily in was this old building that's currently being renovated into new apartments. The man who was working there graciously let us use the space for five minutes to take these photographs.
The lovely Lana
Emily and Emma
This photo of Alana got me very, very excited!
More Ivana. She kind of reminds me of Beyonce in the first photo because of her strong pose. She was balancing on a trailer filled with old brick and soil in these amazing heels.
Daniella and Madeleine
I've included one formal photograph mostly because look at how beautiful those flowers are around Emily?! It was perfect, perfect timing!
