I have a few blog posts to catch up on, not least of all, a very fun shoot with the amazing ladies at Just Teasing Hairdressing for their branding and advertising campaign.
We started out with the owner Gale's picture, which was used in her first ad and business cards.
Gale loves everything Frida - and indeed if you take a look around her salon, it is filled with beautiful flowers, paintings and colourful artefacts dedicated to Frida Kahlo. Much of the art is made by friends, and there is a feature wall (by Ellen Coup) in green - styled from a very famous magazine cover of Frida Kahlo.
Behind the scenes:
This initial branding worked really well - Gale used to do a wall calendar every year for people to collect, so it feels quite right to have a little piece of Just Teasing to take away with you. This year Gale is celebrating 20 years of her salon - indeed a Wellington institution.
Five Señoritas and a beautiful Eclectus parrot called Arthur
Fast forward a few months, and we were ready to shoot the rest of the team for their cards, and make an Anniversary calendar! I arrived ready to shoot and was delighted to meet Arthur - a beautiful Eclectus parrot bought in by Charlotte.
