Santa Baby…..

OK, so for most of you it might still be a tad too early to be diving head first into all things Christmas, but lately a lot of our clients have been coming in to our studios to shoot Christmas cards, wintery styled shoots along with some family portraits featuring the best Christmas jumpers I’ve had the pleasure of laying my eyes on in a while. Now, as you can imagine with all this going on, in and around the studio it has been almost impossible to not get into the spirit of things.

For those of you who have been to our studios, you will already know about the importance of a mood-board it simply outlines the feel and aesthetic you are aiming to achieve through your photo session with us, so for those of you conjuring up an idea for Christmas cards I thought we would share some of our favourites – a festive feast for your eyes, if you will!

enjoy!

Nailed it……

Derek Lam’s florals, a major fall favorite. To achieve this runway-inspired look on nails, Elizabeth used different sized variations of the flower pattern with a black or white base and painted flowers on top using paint pens.

The Charlotte Olympia cat plats, are my personal favourites!

Stella McCartney Spring 2012-Inspired Nails
For these nails, she started with a white base then created blue and red polkadots with black centres to get the look of the cutouts and white details on top of the dots.
Comme des Garcons Play- Inspired Nails
The beauty team at The Face London, loved this one!
These Louise Vuitton inspired pastel nails might be better for spring/summer, but I certainly adore this look!

And for all those Christopher Kane fans out there…..
To get the look use Sally Hansen Salon Effects denim nail stickers with Chanel Holographic “gems” on top and  nail art pens to paint individual flowers on top of OPISignificant Other Color.

Lauren Maccabee…..

Just recently I stumbled upon the genius photographer that is Lauren Maccabee.

Every single image transports me into a beautiful, serene and oh so dreamy world.

The colour palettes for her imagery are as if you were doing back flips into  giant milkshakes, not to mention her choice in subject matter.

I’m completely bowled over by her wonderful work, which you can see more of here www.laurenmaccabee.com/

enjoy!

Matt Wisniewski….

It’s been some time since we last posted about our latest art muse, designer crush or creative goodie so it’s with much excitement and delight that I share these incredible images with you today.

The name is Matt Wisniewski and for all those digital art junkies out there-He’s a wonderful source of inspiration.

A New York-based artist, he first picks out a portrait and then seamlessly incorporates different combinations of textures to the image. The end result? Gorgeous and inspiring mash-ups that highlight the beauty of the human form and nature.

 Matt describes himself very simply-“Hello. My name is Matt. I make things work on the Internet. I like looking at pretty things and making some of my own.”

I think he is pretty amazing, here see for yourselves…

From the series “Futur couture”
