Come closer and see, see into the trees, find the girl, while you can.

A few months ago, I worked on my frist shoot with the amazing superwoman behind cupcake brand, Temptations Creations. With a genuine belief that birthdays are just nature's way of telling us to eat more cake, I knew that this was a brand who I had to somehow get involved with!

The cupcakes themselves are like delicious handmade pieces of edible art. Customised to amazing levels, they are almsost too yummy to eat - although one sniff of the icing will put an end to that. Om nom nom.

To launch the brand, we did a series of editorial images losely based on an idea which squished Alice in Wonderland via Marie Antoinette. Whimsy and decandence were key, as was sourcing an incredible team of people to help bring the vision to life.

This was one of those strange shoots where we actually had the time to plan things properly. We scouted for a team, but in the week leading up to it, disaster seemed to hit at evey turn with members falling to the wayside one after the other. With literally three days to go, and the possibility of posphonement a real possibility, we were suddenly saved after being contacted by an amazing stylist and accessory creator. Hurrah!

Our next mission was the weather. With beautiful sunshine streaming in through the windows of our base whilst preparations were underway, the second we left to walk towards the location minutes away, the clouds crashed together and we were faced with terrencial rain. With any other people, this could have been an utter diasater, but the friendly individuals banded together with brollies and reflectors covering the model, sets and equipment. Although we were soaked, spirits were high and I could not have asked for more incredible people on the day.

I don't know about you, but I am in dire need of some tea and cake after that...
