Hi Guys!

Today i’d like to talk to you about my favourite shoot of this year so far!

As you probably know looking at my portfolio, I really enjoy working with animals (and as challenging as it is i find it equally rewarding!) So far i had a pleasure to shoot with Cats, dogs and recently sheep. I decided to take it a step further this time and go for something slightly more exotic. I spoke to Nicki, a makeup artist extraordinare and my partner in crime and she mentioned she knew somebody who owns parrots, along with loads of other birds.

What could be better than a parrot shoot since we were approaching the summer season! The only step left was getting some great styling, and that was put in Carmel’s talented hands. We thought that featuring local Irish designers and showing them in a different, more colourful light might be a refreshing perspective.

The whole idea was complete thanks to Li-Ann @ Distinct who agreed to model for us and become a parrot whisperer for a day – not a task for the faint hearted 😉

We were lucky to have the Incredible Nadine @ The Space work her magic and create the most incredible hair looks ( not to mention she is a turban master, she knows all the right twists and knots!) and Michele Burke who made Li-Ann’s nails editorial ready!

Here is the Behind the scenes video filmed by my Husband (thanks Monkey! 😀 ) and you can see all the photos HERE :)




Those didn’t make the cut but you have to admit, they are pretty funny 😀
