Gabrielles modelling portfolio day

Gabrielle Louise is a model.....she has a great portfolio and has worked with amazing pressure there then for me to add to what she already has! Luckily I got the chance to work with  an extremely talented and creative make up artist - Donna Graham who seems to be able to create anything out of bits of paper and sticky back plastic!

We spent the day working together to get a range of images for Gabrielle.....we started with simple beauty make up to get some strong headshots

We then wandered along the track behind the farm, with a ton of props - my idea for the next images was Gabrielle hitch hiking along a bleak highway....I watch far too many movies!

We then really got the creative juices flowing and the girls loved using the props and outfits that I have collected to create a new twist on an outfit I have used in a previous photoshoot - Donna suddenly turned the skirt inside out..... scrunched up a section into a flower and also donated her fabulous Dr Martins boots to add to the outfit - marvellous!

We wanted a darker edgier feel to the last set of images, so Donna worked her magic and my clothes rail was raided again - and of course there had to be balloons - they have not featured in any of my photoshoots recently and I was missing them!

We finished the day with some more headshots and I love looking at the contrast from the original images at the beginning of the day to these, I think they really show Donnas skill both as a Make up artist and a stylist. 

Now I know what you are thinking ...... you are wondering how you could have images like these either for a modelling portfolio......or as a present for someone???? Its really really easy - drop me an e mail at or head over to my Facebook Page - Jo Rutherford Photography and leave me a message.

A fashion style photoshoot would be the ideal present for school leavers this year - have you got teenagers in the family - exams have finished....Proms are being planned - how about a Photoshoot as a fantastic leaving present ????? 

Now don't forget - don't just click and run - leave me some love - the girls worked incredibly hard yesterday and would love to know what you think of the results.
