Shooting the Beautiful GirlThis gorgeous girl is the Australian Fashion Designer Jamie Allen. Her swimwear label Jaymes Swimwear has quickly become a hot topic, especially here on the Gold Coast. Her unique style makes her designs stand out from the crowd and has lead to her swimwear being stocked in multiple boutiques around the east coast of Australia including places like Bondi and Byron Bay, and also in American hot-spots such as California. Check out her website if you're after some fun and sexy new swimmers: www.jaymes.com.au.
The bonus for this designer though is her own beautiful features. She is a natural stunner and as I have had her in my life as a great friend since we were little girls I am lucky enough to have been able to grab her for a private little shoot one Thursday morning.
She is so comfortable with herself and I found myself so overjoyed to take photographs of such a beautiful human being without having to do much else besides run in circles around her with my Canon. It was a great learning experience for me. Jamie, having done many photoshoots in recent times gave me a new found confidence and love with photography. I was pleased with the general feel of the images and felt that I accomplished just what I set out to capture.
This is a interesting shot that I was really looking forward to working on. I am really happy with how it turned out. I love the casualness of the location and it gives a really warm feel.
The lines in this shot are so strong. There is a real power in Jamie's stance that I love.
