'Midnight Rapture' Self Portraits

'Midnight Rapture' Self Portraits (video below)


For the upcoming new year, I've decided to perfect my photography skills.
In the past i have been quite apprehensive but in 2014 I'm making a conscious decision to be fearless and pursue ALL my dreams!
Here are some of my favourite shots…


I actually got the concept for this shoot in a dream. 
On 1st December 2013, I had a dream that Beyonce had released a new single featuring Jay Z. (This was a few weeks before her surprise album and track featuring Jay Z were revealed!)
In the dream the images had a whimsical, euphoric feel. With cascading hair and a slight silver cast.
This is my interpretation of the images revealed in the dream


When it came to the editing process, I took influence from the renaissance art period. 
I wanted the photographs to look like oil paintings, fine art pieces…






I am so pleased with the way my photographs have turned out! I hope you like them too!
Here is a Get Ready With Me video to show the hair and makeup preparation for the shoot.xx
