So one day last Autumn, there I was sat with my Mum and sister in the foodcourt at West Quay in Southampton, munching on my lunch when I was approached by two pretty young women.  They explained that one of them, Charly was an aspiring fashion/beauty photographer and the other, Kirsten was an aspiring makeup artist.  They asked me if I would consider modeling for them so they could use the photos in their portfolios and I agreed.

Six months later, my Mum and I headed off to Charly Woodhouse’s studio in Southampton.  Kirsten sat me down and spent at least two hours transforming me into a kind of whimsical, fairy like character.

Here are some shots from the day:

Me having my hair done by the lovely Kirsten!  After applying some ‘setting’ type products, she used loads of little velcro rollers to curl my hair.

I had such a fun day! I think I look completely different and this shoot just goes to show how hair and makeup can completely change your look.
