For my first post - new photos!

I had time today to sit down and look at the proofs from a photo shoot i did last weekend with NZ burlesque performer (and NZ's first 2011 BHOF entrant!) Miss La Vida from Auckland. 
The photographer was Amy Jacobs (Wgtn NZ) and the makeup artist was Emily-Jane Appleton Sturrock.

I couldn't be happier with the results, there were too many fantastic images to choose from!  Here's a sneak preview:

I love the iridescent sheen of the navy blue fabric, it really catches the light beautifully.
You can't really tell from the photo, but there are a few hundred Swarovski crystals around the hem and sleeves, as well as trimming the front edges of the robe.
Miss La Vida is also wearing a deluxe Dlite G string in a Medium Nude shade, covered in Swarovski crystals (Light Colorado Topaz - a very good nude colour).

We also photographed Miss La Vida with the double layer Prima ostrich fans which i made for her earlier this year.  Each feather is tipped with 5 clear Swarovski crystals, and the staves are glossy black inlaid with clear crystals. The sparkle that reflects off these fans is gorgeous!

I'll be posting the best photos from the shoot on my website next week, click here to visit my photo Gallery
