The Black Swan
Model Ria Williams. Dress by Louisa Reeve. Hair and Make-up by Jennifer McMillan
Feedback from Ria about the shoot
I had the pleasure of working along side Louisa who made the wonderful piece I am wearing, Jennifer who is an incredibly talented makeup artist and hair stylist (as you can see by the photos) and Sam who is also very talented in his photography and editing skills.

This shoot was very different from any other shoot I’ve done before. I loved the dramatic effect of the dress and the dark makeup that went with it. I felt fierce and confident wearing this piece. The teamwork it took to get these shots was so good, I had Jen topping up my makeup and sorting my hair out for me every couple of minutes and Louisa arranging the skirt for me, helping me put on the bodice and throwing the skirt up into the air while Sam captured the photos, so we had movement in the skirt. And of course the help from Sam who was helping me with my poses and telling me what looked best and capturing the insane photos!

I had so much fun with this shoot, and I’d love to work along side everyone again, they’re all so lovely and easy to get along with and made me feel great when they were watching the photos being taken.

Thank you again, Sam, Jen and Louisa for all your hard work. It was so much fun to work with you all and I hope we can do it all again some day! X
