Life outside of Quarantine
1./ Confidence for the Camera workshop
2./ #LustyShoots workshop
How has this lockdown affected Ginger’s work?
God this quarantine has been wild. Obviously, I haven’t been able to do the majority of my work, ie. burlesque performing and modelling since they’re both centred around going out and being around people. It’s super frustrating as these are my main two sources of income, and suddenly they’re basically frozen. Luckily, I have a lot of business ideas that I’ve either started or have been meaning to get going, so I’m working on adjusting my attention and energy to those so that I can make a bit of an income AND keep busy enough to stop myself from going crazy.
One thing that I am determined to do is absolutely polish the hell out of my current burlesque acts. Since I have all of this time, I’m going on an outright spring clean by practicing all of my dances, sharpening them and making them even more ravishing. This’ll include going through all of my costumes and doing any work that I think they need- ask any burlesque performer, there are ALWAYS things that need doing- feathers that need poofing, crystals that need reattaching, random threads that need trimming- and I intend to dive right into this!
I’m also going to putting my time toward finishing off acts that you haven’t seen before…
I’m just polishing up my fabulous new Cruella act, but since we apparently have all the time in the world, am also going to get working on an act that’s been floating around my head for a while. I have the almost full costume, I have the music in mind (you guys are going to love it), I just need to choreograph the bastard! You won’t be seeing this for a while, so shall I give you just a little hint as to what it’s going to be about?!
Pink! Lots of it.
Lastly, if you guys like the stuff in my shop enough and I get the funds, I may as well order the materials for a fabulous Christmas act that I have in mind so that can be sorted just in case we’re allowed back into society by then!
So yeah, it’s very crazy being so stuck in one place after I used to run around absolutely all over the place, but I think that I’m making it work!
(she says hopefully)
How has this lockdown affected how I’ll get to see Ginger’s work?
This quarantine has affected a lot of things and my career has been completely turned upside down. However, I’ve always loved juggling various different business plans, so I’m making this work by pushing forward some that would work in the current circumstances and think that you’re going to absolutely love!
Firstly, I’m releasing my new range of gorgeous T Shirts with me plastered all over them!
I really love these. A while ago I started making funky little edits of my images just for funsies, and then realised that they actually look pretty awesome! I thought that I’d try to sell them because I think that you’ll like them too, and I’m completely obsessed with the idea of people walking around with my face on them (it makes the part of my that never expected to become a model in a million years CRACK UP laughing and also deeply satisfies the part of me that I’m slowly strengthening that says FUCK YES WHY WOULDN’T YOU WANT ME ALL OVER YOU?!)
Anyway, these T Shirts are epic and you can view them HERE
You can also see more of me on my private OnlyFans page
I’m adjusting everything that I’m doing with my career, and since my burlesque and model income isn’t currently existent, I’m transferring it all onto my OnlyFans!
Go to www.onlyfans.com/ladygingerlust to see all the naughty pictures that I just wasn’t allowed to post on my Instagram, plus some sexy at home burlesque shows that I put on for me, myself and you guys.
You might have noticed on my social media pages that I’ve been working on rope-tying quite a lot to develop my shibari skills.
Well, I’m also working on a couple of photography commissions that include a saucy bit of me in some fabulous lingerie whilst tied up! They’re fabulous photography projects that I’m going to work my absolute hardest to do beautifully all by myself, and I’m so grateful that they’ve come in to give me something big to focus on and so I’ve a bit more income.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to share these as they’re private projects, but get in touch if you’d like to commission me to do something just for you!
You can contact me HERE.
Thanks for reading this guys, it actually feels quite therapeutic to sum everything up, and is making me feel a bit more connected to you. It’s so weird not being able to see you at any shows, the feeling that you give me when I’m on stage doing my thing and I can hear and see you cheering your support is unlike any other. I miss you so much and I miss all of my stunning burlesque sisters!
If you miss us too, take a look at the House of Burlesque section of this site HERE and meet my family. Follow the link on the pictures to get names and links to everybody’s Instagram pages so that you can see what they’ve been up to as well!
Please do let me know if you’ve any thoughts about what you’d like to see me doing, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Life outside of Quarantine
Where can I see more of Ginger?
I feel like I’m always absolutely all over the place! I love to keep busy, and am always coming up with new ideas which I’m desperate to try out!
My main projects are modelling and burlesque-based. This means that you can find me in various bars and clubs (mainly) around London performing my fabulous burlesque acts, or sometimes even stage managing.
It also means that you can find me dotted around London and the surrounding counties doing photoshoots in various studios and stunning outdoor locations (which I’m always looking for! If you’ve any gorgeous public gardens, streets or buildings that you think might be good for me to shoot at, please get in touch!).
I post all of my burlesque shows on my calendar that you can see HERE but you’ll only really find out about my photoshoots once I release the images. If you’re interested in learning about what goes on during a photoshoot, get in touch and I’ll see if you can get you onto a shoot!
I also run several workshops throughout the year which focus on teaching you how to be a model. The first ‘Confidence for the Camera’ is a small workshop in which I tell you exactly what to expect on a professional photoshoot, how to pose to show off your beautiful features, and how best to use lighting and camera angles. The second #LustyShoots is an actual professional photoshoot that I’ve arranged for you. You experience 2 hours of hair and makeup done by experienced artists in the fashion industry, wardrobe styling with me and then time in front of the camera to get the most stunning images. I’m there the entire time giving you tips on how to pose, as well as making any adjustments to your hair and wardrobe. Afterwards, you receive fully edited professional images to use however you like!
That’s all that I can think of for now, I’m going to move onto the next question and then come back to this if anything pops into my head.
How can I work with Ginger?
How can you work with me? It really depends on what you do! If you’re a creative then we can absolutely do something together. If you’re a photographer, hair stylist, makeup artist, stylist or designer and would like to work on a project together, please let me know!
If you’ve any projects and would like me to be involved, please get in touch! I love following instructions toward a concrete idea that you’ve had, and I love coming up with concepts myself so if you’ve a small thought that don’t know how to bring it to life, absolutely let me know.
I’ve so much experience of creating concepts myself, doing my own hair, makeup & styling, and am happy to lend my talents to anybody who wants help!
Equally for burlesque, I’m happy to give any advice on burlesque act development regarding concepts, costume, music and choreography.
If you don’t do any of things that I’ve mentioned above, we can still work together!
I do private commissions so can create any images that you like, if you’ve ever thought about how much you’d like to see me wearing a certain thing, let me know!
If you love my public pictures, but want me to take a little something especially for you, get in touch!
As what kind of woman do you love to portray most? @Von_Monfeld
I love to portray strong women best. At first it was so I had the opportunity to fake it and pretend that I truly was that badass person that I was playing, but eventually I realised how much it helps bring me the confidence to actually be that person.
I really love playing the bad guys, they’re so much fun! Does that make me bad?
If you were a guy, how would you you like to be dressed? @Von-Monfeld
Probably very similarly! I think that anybody can wear absolutely anything that they want to, regardless of their gender identity. I might enjoy dressing in a bit more of a masculine style if I was a guy since I wouldn’t have booblas to burst my shirts open!
What brings you the most satisfaction in your chosen career? @Madaxeman71
I liked the answer that I gave on this ‘ask me anything’ Instagram story series, so I’m going to quote it here.
‘Seeing myself become this badass, beautiful business woman. Seeing my personal style develop, my mental health thrive and the strong, gorgeous people that I choose to surround myself with. I used to look up to these kinds of women SO badly, and I feel so much satisfaction when I reflect upon the fact that I’m working hard to actually be the kind of person that I’ve always admired.
AND I’M SUCCEEDING MOTHERFUCKERS!’
What were your influences that got you into the modelling and burlesque scene? @Norse_valkyries_rc
God I’ve been influenced by so much around me for so long, I couldn’t possibly give just one thing. But all the beauty that I’ve seen in my life and everything that it’s made me feel has led to this.
Do you ever feel it is just a job or is it always ‘holy cow I can’t believe I’m doing this’? @Ralphwallen
It’s gotten a lot more normal for me, but in a great way that takes away much of my anxiety about being in this crazy, unknown situation. Now that I have so much more knowledge about it, I’m free to relax and enjoy my holy cow this is my life?! moments… of which there are SO many!
Is having a larger bust more curse or blessing to you? Do you often feel sexualized? @Von_Monfeld
It used to absolutely be a curse, and I understand how so many girls with large busts have such difficult with them. I’m very lucky, I found good designers for larger breasts quite quickly in my life and I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to find bras and clothes that fit me well. While I’m very aware of how lucky I am to have this, I do know that it’s also my attitude and openness toward myself and my body that has allowed me to develop my own personal style and confidence in myself.
I absolutely love my boobies.
Where can I see Ginger perform?
You can see me perform all over the place! I don’t perform anywhere regularly, so you’ll have to keep an eye out. I currently have one show in my calendar HERE due to the lockdown, but hopefully once it’s lifted I’ll have more shows to invite you to!
What kind of events does Ginger perform at?
I generally only perform at dedicated burlesque or cabaret shows, but love to venture out to other events. There are so many interesting possibilities… I’ve performed at a poetry show before, as the fabulous half-time performance at a rock bar and private parties! I’d also love to get involved in some festivals, so will have to keep finding new and interesting events to perform at!
Who made Ginger’s burlesque costumes?
I’m proud to say that I make them myself! Once I get an idea, I think about what I want for the design. I think about the different layers and how I’ll be able to remove them. I had the zips alongside the legs of my Sailor Boy trousers done by the fabulous Leigh Creates (insta HERE) but other than that all of the sewing, crystalling and decorating were done by myself!
Who created Ginger’s burlesque routines?
Me! I came up with all of my routines myself, and it’s been absolutely fabulous. I was surprised to discover how much work goes into it, but it’s absolutely worth it in the end! It’s such an incredible delight to be able to create this whole act from scratch and then share it with the wonderful audience.
How many burlesque routines does Ginger have?
I currently have 3 burlesque acts that I’ve released.
These include my Stone Goddess act, which is based upon the idea of the statue of a Goddess suddenly coming to life and discovering her body and her sexuality.
The second is Sailor Boy, based upon the idea of a girl pretending to be a boy in order to find work on a ship, and develops into a commentary on how women are expected to represent themselves as masculine in order to succeed in the world.
My third act has only been seen once in this world but I love it SO much and would be delighted to bring it to life again!
This absolute gem is called Will The Real Ginny Weasley Please Stand Up (long title I know but I just couldn’t resist!) and is a comparison of the representation of the character Ginny Weasley in the movie and book versions of Harry Potter.
I do also have a fourth act Cruella ready for release!
How does Ginger come up with her burlesque routines?
God it’s so weird, inspiration can come from anything. When I first began, I found it so difficult to think of something that I wanted to do and then one night I was home, drunk, taking off my makeup in the mirror and staring at myself when the idea of Stone Goddess jumped into my head!
Sailor Boy happened because I was determined to do an act to Otis Redding, Sittin on the dock of the bay. Recently it has actually been mainly music that's inspired me, but it’s wonderful that a whole act can literally come from anything.
Where can I see The House of Burlesque?
The House of Burlesque is everywhere!
You can see the House Of Burlesque in various places all over London. Most regularly is their Banked Show every Friday night in Bank, and their Speakeasy every Saturday night in Speakeasy! You’ll see some of the best burlesque performers in the world there, and sometimes even me!
The House of Burlesque also puts on fabulous Fresh Shows semi-monthly which are one-off shows created and produced by our House of Burlesque family! These have been some absolutely EPIC shows which include the famous ‘Harry Potter Fresh’ in which I performed my incredible Ginny Weasley act, as well as the ‘Sex Ed Fresh’ which was resurrected earlier this year for the amazing Vaults Festival in Waterloo!
On top of these there are tons of pop-ups as well as wonderful new shows during Christmas and the Summer break, so keep an eye on their website to see what they’re up to
How can I learn with The House of Burlesque?
It is SUPER easy!
Just go to the House of Burlesque website and check out their academy HERE. I did the full burlesque course years ago, starting with beginner, going onto intermediate and then finishing with Performance in which you develop and perform your very own act, all under the wonderful guidance of Tempest Rose!
Do I have the correct body type to be a burlesque dancer?
Darling absolutely EVERYBODY can do burlesque
No matter what gender you are
No matter how you look
No matter how able-bodied you are
All that matters is that if you want to do it, you can do it!
One beautiful thing about burlesque is that it’s a celebration of the human body. It’s not restricted to skinny girls with perky tits any more, it’s for the person with the (literal or metaphorical) balls to get on a stage and share this part of themselves!
How did you get so confident and how can burlesque help us love our bodies more? @Dorothyparkersknickers
Oh man, what a question! Ok so re. the confidence thing, I’ve been working really hard on it for the past few years. Up until about 5 years ago, I felt super mega bad in myself. I was suffering horribly from anxiety and depression, I had IBS which gives you physical pain that’s directly influenced by your emotional mood, and I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with myself.
I worked toward building my confidence from several different directions. I went to therapy, did a CDT hypnotherapy course and became absolutely obsessed with self-meditation (I recommend all of these!) as well as working hard on developing my model portfolio. Eventually my self-confidence was higher than it’s ever been before, and this momentum led me to take a burlesque course which I’d ALWAYS wanted to do. It was so perfect for me, it felt like I’d always been on that glamorous path, and as I meet more people and experience more fabulousness I can’t believe what’s become of my life.
Burlesque is SO full of positivity, I can’t even begin to tell you. It’s not just a dance class, it’s time taken to open up about what you love most about yourselves and to encourage and support everybody else in their thoughts. It’s a chance to really take a hold of your sexuality and celebrate it in whatever way you want.
It helps you play with your creative skills and allows you to embrace and express yourself, it gives you permission to take control over your body and your mind back, which is something that so many people in this current society desperately need.
I’ve never been to a burlesque show before- what should I expect??
Fun! Energy, excitement, enthusiasm. Volume! The best burlesque shows are the ones where everybody’s shouting and cheering with a crazy amount of energy. As a burlesque performer, I respond well to encouragement from you. I want to know that you’re loving it and I need to hear that!
In your point of view: What makes burlesque so magical? @Von_Monfeld
The atmosphere… the people… the visuals and the sounds. It’s just this world of luxury full of people trying to be happy and trying to make others happy, trying to have a good time and trying to share their passion and art.
What can modern women learn from the times of burlesque? @Von_Monfeld
That it’s ok to love yourself and show confidence. That you can be girly and feminine and still strong and absolutely badass. That you don’t have to care about what people say and that you’re allowed to do what you want with your body and mind.
What is the no. 1 rule when performing burlesque? @Von_Monfeld
Don't be a dick.
How can I become a model?
There are so many ways, but they all begin with going in front of the camera! I spent so much of my early modelling shooting with photographer friends, as well as arranging shoots with people that I met on networking websites like purpleport.com and modelmayhem.com.
A great way to get into it is via. my model workshops where I give you tips and advice on how to feel confident in front of the camera, and where I take you on a professional photoshoot where you’ll model for the camera to get your own images for your portfolio!
How was your very first photoshoot? @Von-Monfeld
It was actually fabulous! I was super nervous, but the people that I worked with had great ideas of what would suit me and how I should move. I’m so grateful for the memories of that time, it did so much for my confidence!
Who does Ginger’s hair and makeup for her photoshoots?
I do my own hair and makeup the majority of the time! I’ve always been obsessed with the incredible work that I’ve seen hair stylists and makeup artists do, and have worked hard on learning how best to do it myself.
I still do love having it done by somebody else of course, there are things that I haven’t mastered yet!
What has modelling taught you for other aspects of life? @Von-Monfeld
It has taught me confidence, kindness, grace and style.
I feel like it’s changed who I am as a person, or at least allowed me to really pull the person that I wanted to be out into the open.
It’s also taught me that it’s easier than we think to achieve what we want.
I am a photographer, how would you prefer me to contact you about collaborating on a project? @Nicholasgodsellphotography
There are so many ways to get in contact with me, but I think that the best is via email!
You can use my email@example.com address.
My contact page HERE
What do you expect from a photographer when shooting you? @Von_Monfeld
Professionalism & good direction.
Everybody’s different and everybody works in different ways, but you should always be polite and try to be communicative about what you want from the photoshoot.
What are total no goes for shooting themes and styles? @Von_Monfeld
Just anything that makes me feel uncomfortable. I’m very honest with myself, and confident in my abilities to shut down anything that I’m not happy with. When planning a shoot everything should be discussed beforehand, and it's important to be honest about what you expect from your photoshoot, and what you're happy to do.
When did you decide to be proud of your curves and show them? @Von-Monfeld
Around the time that I began to first model! I think that I had a warped view of how my body looked, because when I first saw myself in these images, I couldn’t believe that I was looking at myself. The more I dressed up in these incredible outfits and saw myself, the more I fell in love with myself. And then at the end of the day when I took off all of the makeup and sat looking at myself in my undies, I saw that the beauty was still there.
Some models use eg. OnlyFans to earn more money with nude content. What is your opinion? @Von_Monfeld
I think that if you’re happy and comfortable doing that, then you absolutely should! I really hate the way that women modelling nude is so looked down upon, and really wish that it was more acceptable. I absolutely LOVE modelling naked! I genuinely feel more comfortable and confident the less that I’m wearing, but I’m scared to show too much of myself. I want to share my body because I’m proud of it and I’m a bit of an exhibitionist, but I feel uneasy with the idea of what certain people will think of me. I’ve pushed through this unease a LOT as I slowly began to feel more comfortable via. My lingerie modelling and burlesque performing (I would never have thought myself capable of doing that 10 years ago and now I wouldn’t dream of NOT doing it!) and I think that I would genuinely enjoy embracing myself and showing my body off more to you guys. But eh, it’s all a journey and while I’m never going to do something that I’m not comfortable with, I’m moving forward all of the time and am excited to see where I go!
What is your advice for models who struggle with the question to do nudes or not? @Von_Monfeld
Be honest with yourself and do exactly what YOU feel like. It’s fine to do, and it’s fine to not do. If that’s what you genuinely want to do (and have taken a bunch of time to think about it and let yourself change your mind a few times) then just make sure that you have a good, professional photographer who isn’t going to mess you around.
Keep safe on the shoot, bring a friend and make sure that you’re not rushing yourself!
What was the funniest incident during a shoot so far? @Von_Monfeld
Shoots are super successful when you’ve been having fun, because it means that you give off this amazing energy to the camera. It’s important that you vibe well with the photographer, to make sure that they capture you well, and that everybody on set is happy.
I’ve had a lot of fun on photoshoots, but I think that the time when I laughed the most actually wasn’t on a photography shoot, but when I was an extra on Electric Dreams, a Philip. K. Dick TV show. We were shooting a sex club scene and I was in the orgy. They basically put 6 of us together and let us arrange ourselves. It was HILARIOUS! Being with 6 strangers all in (pretty goddam sexy) fetish wear and having to figure out our orgy positions was… amazing.
I also feel the need to tell you that of the 6 of us, I was the only one wearing their own clothes after the stylists loved the latex outfit and lingerie harness that I brought with me to the fitting! Good times...
What do you family and friends think about your modelling job? @Von_Monfeld
They’re super supportive! I love to talk to my friends about my life and what I’ve been up to. I’m not so open with my family, understandably, but they all know what I do and they’re all very loving and encouraging about it. I was in an abusive situation regarding a photographer a little while ago, and the care and support that I received from my loved ones was absolutely breathtaking.
How has modelling changed your self-perception? @Von_Monfeld
I think that I must have suffered quite badly from image distortion when I was younger, because I feel like modelling has forced me to really take a look at myself. And I loved what I saw! It’s changed me so much, I feel like an entirely different person.
Did you ever feel awkward on camera? If so, how did you move past that? @Graceling144
God, absolutely! SO many times! It’s very easy and common to feel awkward in front of the camera, but it happens sometimes when you first begin a shoot, so it’s no reason to stop. I move past it by changing a little thing, like my stance or arm position. I try to take pressure off myself, and decide to just push through and keep at it for a few minutes. I then ask to look at the back of the camera to the pictures that have been taken, and then think about how I feel about them and if there’s anything that I’d change. I then use this to evolve the shoot to a point where I’m happy, which makes me feel a lot more confident and less awkward!
What is your signature pose? @Von-Monfeld
I don’t think that I have one! What do you think?
What does Ginger teach?
I teach modelling and burlesque!
I currently have two workshops- Confidence for the Camera and #LustyShoots.
Confidence for the Camera goes into what to expect on a professional photoshoot, how to best pose to make the most of your face and body and what to look for in lighting and camera angles!
#LustyShoots is an actual professional photoshoot where you’ll have hair and makeup done for 2 hours, wardrobe styling with me and then you’ll model in a professional photoshoot, with me right there to help you pose to make sure that you get the best pics ever!
Where can I learn more about this?
I’ve written a bit about it on my workshop page HERE!
When is Ginger’s next workshop?
Unfortunately, due to the lockdown I’ve had to cancel my current workshop dates.
I’m hoping that things free up soon, and that we’re able to get them started again!
Who can attend Ginger’s workshop?
Absolutely anybody! I began this for my burlesque family who had no trouble doing their thing on stage but weren’t sure about what to do in front of the camera, but it’s developed beautifully and now all kinds of people show their gorgeous faces!
It’s for anyone of any gender who just wants to feel a little bit more confident and comfortable when a camera gets pulled on them.
You can go to one or both workshops so go to my workshop page HERE to read more information and see reviews!
What do I get from Ginger’s workshops?
You will gain valuable knowledge on what goes into a professional photoshoot, and what will be expected of you.
You’ll also learn my tips on posing and pulling facial expressions for the camera based on my experience of 8 years in the industry, and you’ll be in a safe, fun environment to develop your own opinions on how YOU think you should move.
1./ Confidence for the Camera workshop
What should I expect from this workshop?
This is my smaller workshop in which we just sit and talk everything through. It lasts for 2 hours 30 mins, and will include me passing on my knowledge and experience in regards to photoshoots and selfie sessions. I’ll talk about what to expect from a professional photoshoot, what’ll be expected of you as well as tips on how to move and mould your facial expressions. There is a practical part of the workshop in which I’ll be asking you to take some pictures on your phone so we can look at how certain things like lighting and angles affect photography.
What will I get from this workshop?
You’re going to get some serious ideas on what you might do the next time somebody points a camera at you. You’re going to have some great experience thinking about the different things that goes into a photoshoot (casual and professional), and you’re going to have some excitement about getting home and putting them into practice with your first post-Confidence for the Camera Workshop selfie session!
You’re going to walk away with some homework which’ll help you keep this attitude and development going, and hopefully you’ll like it enough to come and model for me on my #LustyShoots Workshop!
What should I wear on this workshop?
Anything that you’re comfortable in! Although we do take some pictures, they are just a practice and don’t need to be shown anywhere online. So you’re free to dress up or down, as you please!
What should I prepare for this workshop?
Prepare to have your mind blown!
Just kidding… a lot of it is just stuff that I feel like you’ll kinda be like oh yeah, of course! That makes sense! But it’s all stuff that might not really occur to you unless you’ve been doing it consistently for years.
Honestly, you don’t need to prepare much apart from bringing something to write in, something to write with, and your phone (fully charged!).
That’s ok gorgeous! It’s completely natural and normal, a lot of people are nervous before doing this sort of thing.
Just don’t let that stop you! xxx

2./ #LustyShoots workshop
What should I expect from this workshop?
This workshop is so fabulous, I’m so proud of myself!
Ok, so you’re going to walk in and immediately sit down with a cuppa for 2 hours while you have your hair and makeup done by professionals. We’ll talk about exactly what kind of style you love and want, and while it’s being done you’ll just chill with the other models and relax.
When that’s finished, you and I are going to go into the fitting room and have a massive ‘going through stuff’ montage! We’ll look through your fabulous clothes that you brought with you (after we’ve discussed it during the week before the shoot!) AND THEN we’ll go to the photography studio to take some truly stunning photos of you!
I’m there the entire time talking you through everything, helping you to get into the best position and then helping you evolve through poses.
What will I get from this workshop?
You’re going to walk away with some absolutely beautiful pictures of yourself. You’re going to have experienced the full professional hair and makeup treatment, with the opportunity to talk to your beauty stylist about anything that you might be wondering about the industry. You’ll have spent the last few hours with your favourite ginger model/ burlesque performer with her telling you exactly how to stand and move, giving you tons of tips and advice about the modelling world!
You’re going to walk away with the confidence and experience of a model!
What should I wear on this workshop?
Ok so you want to arrive with a fresh face, ideally without makeup but it doesn’t really matter as anything can be removed. You want to arrive wearing comfortable clothes, stylish if poss since you’ll be posing for lots of selfies, but really anything that makes you happy.
You’ll have all of your photoshoot clothes, jewellery and accessories in your bag ready for us to dive into after you’re hair and makeup ready!
What should I prepare for this workshop?
Around a week before the shoot I’ll get in contact and we’re going to talk through what you actually want from this shoot. We’re going to talk through what you want to wear and how you want to look. After you send me pics of your favourite clothes and accessories, and we talk them through, you’ll know exactly what to bring with you on the day!
I know babe! It’s ok, you’re going to be totally fabulous. This is a really big day, and kinda scary for somebody who hasn’t experienced this kind of thing before. It’s going to be a professional environment with everybody working hard together, and I’m your personal assistant there to make sure that you have a fabulous day!
