Dat Girl Photo Shoot

This weekend was a HUGE weekend for me.. it was the very first Dat Girl photo shoot.
 
Naturally, I was stressing out, organising and not sleeping much the whole week leading up to it, as I tried to make sure I had everything organised. It's not the easiest task to prepare for something you have never ever done before.
 
Friday night I was up all night, setting up the studio, steaming clothes and tidying our place.
 
4 and a half hours later and I was awake and ready to go...
 
 
Kat from About Face came to do the girls makeup early in the morning.
 
 
Fortunately, the sun came to the party on Saturday, unfortunately.. the wind was invited too! In the morning, the wind was constantly knocking down the studio we set up, so we had to make do with what we had and hang it over a brick wall... holding it down with whatever weights we could find ( e.g. orange juice bottles lol)
 

 
After the slight hiccup we we got into full blow photo shoot mode and the girls were amazing!!! I couldn't be happier with how the models and our beautiful photographer worked together and helped bring my vision alive.




Behind the scenes shots...


 


 
 It was a long day, shooting from 9am until 4:30pm, but the girls were all really fantastic and V, lollies, water and nuts gave us all the energy to keep going!


 
I really enjoyed the day and I am really loving doing this, I can't wait to show you all and launch the site...


 
 
I don't want to commit to a launch date just yet, as there is still a lot of work left to do, but as soon as I know when it will start operating... you'll be the first to know!
