Massively inspired

My photo heroes are Mario Testino and Annie Leibovitz.  They're hard core old school champions and they each have a piece of my heart.  Recently I've been trying to take inspiration else where and that came by the way of Lara Jade.  She is is a 24 year old photographer who has used her self portrait confidence and magnified it by a bajillion.  I thought Sue Bryce had caught my breath but Lara literally took it.

As I am revamping a number of my sessions by dropping some, I'm equally adding to the weight of my services.  I am going to run a series of sessions called Spellbound - inspired by these amazing avant garde style shoots.  I believe every pouty/tanned/donut-bun-on-head teenage girl needs to experiment with trying contemporary, timeless styling and grab themselves some iconic images that won't age a jot.  Fashions come and go - ethereal images (like below) don't.   Facebook pages are littered with self takes where every girl looks exactly the same, why not try one of these sessions to break the mould?

I am looking for help, though.
 have 3 models and a number of props in prep for these shoots.  I am, however, looking for some vintage style floral embellishments - do you know any company who might want to loan me some?  If you know of any, clue me in - won't you? x

My first test shots are due to take place in the next two weeks so stay tuned!

Yup Lara Jade is amazing. Claire has been following her for years - since DeviantArt. She was the one who had a self-portrait she took of herself at age 14 used on a porn video cover. It was a kind of Moulin Rouge-esque look. She asked them to cease and desist and they laughed at her. She took them to court. And won. It was all over the papers.
