I know it's been a while since I have blogged, but tonight, I have a stonker for you!
I was at a Business Gateway network evening when Lynsay approached me to see if I was interested in getting together to photograph her Summer 2015 Collection of vintage dresses and needless to say I jump at the chance!
Lynsay owns Bustle Boutique, an amazing collection of vintage dresses. They range from the 1920's all the way through to the 1980's. Each of the dresses have been preloved and if need be, Lynsay has restored them back to their original way.
In her previous days, before kids, Lynsay has had a background as a Designer, Pattern Cutter and a Garment Technologist, so she really knows what she is talking about, and you know what the best thing is, she LOVES every single garment that is hanging around her and it totally comes across.
Lynsay had wanted to use Abbotsford House, as when she graduated she had her collection photographed there, this meant a lot to Lynsay, kind of bringing it back to where it all began. We headed off to Abbotsford House for the early rise and walked around the gardens and house. It really is an amazing place; if you’re around the Borders or live here it's worth a visit!
Enormous thank you to our two models Olivia and Emma, Make Up - Colette Casher @ The Lauren Gollen MUA, Edinburgh, Hair - Sam Kerr from Wilson's Professional Hair Stylists, Melrose and to Lynsay for asking me to join the team!!
