Titania's Dance

If you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen that I've been getting some inspiration for more artistic photo shoots from magazines like Harper's Bazaar.  The following set of photos is somewhat of an artistic indulgence then, but with some magnificent lighting from the setting sun, and a stunning mountain backdrop, I felt it was the perfect occasion to channel Kate Bush.  I am thrilled with these photos, I hope you enjoy them too.

Here in the UK, we are very rarely blessed with those amazing sunsets and sunrises that seem to be present in other parts of the world on a more consistent basis.  We usually have rain clouds in the way.  We headed out to take some photos on an evening when it had started to cloud over, but luckily as we drove up the mountain rays of light started to break through.  It lasted ten minutes, and then it was gone.  My husband said that this was his favourite shoot that we've ever done.  I think it might be mine too.

The trouble is we've raised the bar now.  I wish we could do more arty-farty shoots but we don't have the time!!  Next week I'll probably be back to a few outfit snaps in the supermarket carpark...

  1. These photos are just fabulous!! The first thing I thought when I saw the top one on instagram, was ooh that's soon Kate Bush, you capture her ethereal essence perfectly. That dress is really gorgeous, the colour works so well with the dwindling light, it's perfect! xx

  2. I think having these artistic photoshoots every once in a while is good, but in order to keep them special, those carpark outfit shoots are necessary :) Unless you want to focus only on artistic photoshoots, that is.

    I love these photos and that dress is absolutely gorgeous! x

  10. Super, super shots. The sun is in just the right place for perfect backlighting, and I love the way you've really got into the spirit of it. It's great how the pink flowers echo the colours in your outfit and balance the frame out.
