A Vanity Affair: The finale by Maria Farrelly

Hurray, we’ve finally reached the last in this series of posts from our styled shoot: A Vanity Affair. Lets hand you over to the brains behind this, Maria Farrelly Photography for the final words…and images :) 


I’m hijacking this post to say a few words and to share my photographs taken that day.


It was important to me that this shoot related to our readers. I didn’t want to hire in models. I wanted to use ‘real women’ our actual readers.

Hensol_Castle_maria_farrelly33This blog has grown because of women like these that read, share and interact with us. Hensol_Castle_maria_farrelly49Hensol_Castle_maria_farrelly66Collaborating with you lovely lot makes this job so much more fun too!

Hensol_Castle_maria_farrelly60Hensol_Castle_maria_farrelly52 Its also worth remembering that many of these ladies were nervous, VERY NERVOUS. They had no idea what we were going to do with their hair or make up and totally trusted us.

There was really only one image that I wanted to direct and capture. And that was My Vanity Affair. You can read all about the inspiration behind the shoot here.

Vanity AffairI was so pleased with how it all turned out and cannot wait to organise my next shoot in the New Year.
