Back in February, Jilske photography and Studio Petrina Milas teamed up for a Valentine’s contest. People could nominate someone close to them who they think deserves to feel beautiful. That person would receive a full makeover & photoshoot. Two people on opposite sides of the world, at the same time, entered one of their dearest friends. And I’m honored to introduce you to her today, meet our lucky winner, Anna!
Anna is a busy mum who works as an environmental scientist, so she doesn’t get much opportunity to be pampered and feel glamorous. She never had professional photos taken before, so our goal for this session was to remind her of just how naturally beautiful she is, to celebrate her and document the things she enjoys in life. And for her to have a few keepsakes of this time, not just for her, but in the future for her daughters to treasure and have a beautiful photo of their mum as well!
Anna has beautiful thick strawberry blonde hair, which Petrina swept up into a tousled, easy updo – a different look for Anna, which she loved. For her make-up Petrina did a sheer foundation, pretty cheeks in a natural peachy stain, a wash of soft shimmer on her eyes and some individual lashes for extra lush eyes. Anna confessed she’s never found the right lip colour before, so she was delighted with one of Petrina’s Studio colours, ‘Hippie Hi Gloss’ in a soft coral. This complements her natural, fresh and relaxed style. It’s always such a delight to see the transformation that takes place, Anna looked and felt simply gorgeous:
Before the shoot, Anna and Ilse created a mood board together. Anna likes pepper and willow trees, coffee, writing and the mix of rustic with industrial. Together with her wardrobe it gave us the perfect idea of what, where and when to shoot, and even what soundtrack to whistle to .
Here are a few of the highlights of Anna and Ilse's time spent together…
