Curiouser and curiouser ...........

I love to work with a team - I love to collaborate on personal photography projects, I learn so much from the creative people that I work with and the crazy ideas that we all come up with and this photoshoot was no exception. 

I had teamed up with Donna Graham who now has the official title of the most creative person in the whole Universe, and Jen Brook , an extremely beautiful and talented model who hides her slightly bonkers side quite well most of the time! This was certainly a team effort with Jen coming up with ideas for the set ups and the 'look' of Alice and Donna styling and making the incredible outfits as well as doing Jens hair and make up. I found a fabulous cupcake maker in Southport who made the cakes....including a few extras for us to eat during the day and I also found a beautiful and enchanted garden nearby for us to use for the day 

We set up the Mad Hatters Tea party and if you ever need any vintage crockery give me a shout as I got a little obsessed in buying it recently! The story for the day was that Alice in her beautiful cream and blue dress arrives at the tea party and explores all the beautiful cakes .....but there is always 2 sides to every story and every character and we wanted to give Alice the chance to show her rebellious darker side

Feel free to click on any of the images to look at a larger version 

And if you have the urge to be Alice - then get in touch and we can make your dreams come true!

And just to show you how hard it is when we are working on a photoshoot.............

There are plenty of people to acknowledge ........

Louise and her family for making us so very welcome in the garden - and particularly to her gorgeous daughters who loved having Alice in their garden and made us fairy wands and drew all sorts of gorgeous pictures!

And we are all really proud to have had this shoot featured on a fabulous Blog
