Believe it or not, this was my NINTH shoot with Nic Mesker! We go way back, and I absolutely adore working with him. He's laid back, funny and feeds me Nutella toast in between makeup changes - what more could a model ask for from her photographer? Katie Pham was the hair and makeup genius behind this shoot, and despite everything that was thrown at her, torrential rain, shooting in the sauna, jumping in the pool, the hair and makeup looked amazing throughout the whole shoot.
Tessarella House was kind enough to lend me some absolutely stunning pieces for this shoot, and it really completed the luxe look we were going for. They did my wedding jewellery*, so it's no surprise that they make gorgeous, one off pieces, but the arrange of colours* and intricate designs really impressed me.
Shot on the rooftop pool area, against stormy skies, we captured a dramatic photo set using classic-cut swimwear with these beautiful jewels to bring you the Adorned story. My version is a little desaturated to let the jewellery sparkle through as the focus. For the original version, you can see Nic Mesker's "Sinatra" blog here
