Vintage style travel in the Southern Highlands

Fashion hair and makeup artist Southern Highlands Bowral Berrima Mittagong Robertson Sydney Canberra

If you are one of those people who wish for the elegance of yesteryear, yearning for some class and style to come back to our lives of today, this vintage fashion shoot is right up your alley!

Anyone following my blog posts will have noticed my love for doing vintage fashion shoots with Gill from Twisting Vintage, and yes, this is another one of those!

I had the amazing opportunity to yet again work with Fine art photographer Oscar Coleman, who tried playing around a bit with some of the lighting in the shots –  there were some amazing outcomes from it!

Gill and I styled this shoot together – it is always fun playing with her gorgeous clothes and her before a shoot! Gill loves to keep the style closer to the era whilst I always want to turn it into modern vintage – this shoot we followed her heart, and the clothes look divine. But I did go with a modern 60s twist with the makeup, which I wasn’t too sure I had done the right thing at first, but it did end up working!

The shots were taken at Robertson Heritage Railway station in the Southern Highlands of NSW. Unfortunately, no lovely vintage steam train came through to grace the shoot as the vintage trains do not come down here anymore.

I am very much a cruelty-free fur-free makeup artist, so if you are wondering why so much fur, I must admit, that I did take a little bit of a step of the animal rights ladder with the excuse that these are all very old and vintage furs………..forgive me anyone who is annoyed at me!!!

As always 1 enjoyed working with Twisting Vintage’s favourite model Tayla Monkhouse and a new model who was fabulous to work with as well Olivia Lucia.

Olivia’s beautiful face – she has the look of Sophia Loren!

Tayla just rocks the outfits! In the following shots, she is wearing a favourite hat of mine – I love how the whole look is very Dior.

Oscar’s lighting techniques were really amazing – especially in the two following shots of Tayla just looking oh so dreamy
