Bohemian Finds Photoshoot with Khandie Photography!

There have been two things in my life that have brought me confidence, One being pretty dresses and the other taking part in photoshoots. I have finally got to the stage of accepting myself for who I am. Our bodies may change, but we always have a right to feel beautiful and no one but ourselves have a right to judge. It is heartwarming to see so many people campaigning for body positivity, and seeing more stores show love and acceptance. No one can say you are to big or to small, our bodies are our own choices and if someone can not support that they have no right to comment on it.

If you have visited my blog before, you may have learnt that one of my favourite Northampton stores
is Bohemian Finds. Not only are the staff so lovely that they have become friends, but they stock some of my favourite brands, and in a wide range of sizes. I love that this store specialise in making women feel good about themselves and I feel honoured that I have previously been involved with live window displays and photoshoots with them.

Recently I got asked by the very talented photographer Khandie Photography to be apart of Bohemian Finds Summer range photoshoot. As I already love being a part of anything Bohemian Finds, and had been a big fan of Khandies photography, I jumped at the chance.

Upon arriving, we were greeted and shown the beautiful array of dresses and accessories we would be modelling by Gretchen, while Khandie showed us the set she had been working on and shared her ideas. We were then taken into hair, ready to get to work.

Hair for the shoots was done by the beautiful Emma Boddington from Rockabelles. Rockabelles is a vintage boutique salon based in Northampton, specialising in vintage hair styling and alternative colouring. Along with her lovely staff, Emma also offers hairdressing, barbering, beauty treatments and nails. Emma summoned up some beautiful curls, full of lots of volume for my look, and I absolutely loved it. She was friendly, gifted and worked with great efficiency getting through three models and still managing to jump in and model some dresses with us.

After trying my outfits styled by Gretchen, the fun started on set. Khandie is a wedding, boudoir, fashion and portrait photographer, with a studio based in Northampton. With experience as a model and performer herself, she has a great knowledge of photography, lighting and how to get the best from who she is working with. Khandie not only lights up the room and ensures you are enjoying yourself, but she also comforts any nerves and encourages others to feel good about themselves.

I adored this shoot, the other models were darlings, fun to be around, hard working, and they looked stunning. Gretchen truly has a gift for finding the perfect outfits and accessories to suit a variety of women and the dresses themselves, lets just say I will be adding a few of them to my collection.

Working with these ladies who I respect so much, who spend there lives boosting other women and making them feel beautiful has been a memory to treasure. Too often we come across people who tear eachother down, it truly fills me with love and pride to know these kind, powerful women and I would highly recommend checking out their business to everyone.

Thank you for reading my post, I hope you have enjoyed reading about the wonderful ladies I got to work with. If you would like a chance to meet some of us, see what we do and peruse some pretty dresses we are hosting a Live Window Display at Bohemian Finds this Saturday!
