Behind the scenes from the recent shoot

A week ago I’ve been on the fashion shoot and took plenty behind the scenes images that I wanted to share with you today. I took about 200 pictures I think… which then makes it extremely difficult to sort them out and choose the best ones, deleting the others.

We were shooting in the hotel with beautiful settings. There were four models in total, so there will be some group shoots.

The photographer kept the rooms relatively dark, only using his own equipment, so the later it got in the day the darker the pictures came out…

We had a very limited space in the room as there were 4 models, three make up and hair stylists, a wardrobe stylist with assistant, a photographer with assistant and me…. so the big room suddenly became very small when everyone brought their working tools:) I have laid out all the pieces on the bed, ready for matching to the outfits.

From recent fashion shoot - all Jolita Jewellery pieces laid out, ready for selection

First look – Marina is wearing an evening gown and a luxury Antwerp necklace.

I really like this next shot. Whilst the models were posing on bed I caught their reflection in the mirror and I think it came out pretty well:)

Maria also changed her appearance. She’s wearing our Madrid Luxe necklace and Dubai clip-ons. The picture came out quite blurry, so my apologies for the quality.
