Behind the scenes: photoshoot for Lionheart magazine

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to style a photoshoot for a beautiful new, but already increasingly popular, Lionheart Magazine. Not only was it brilliant to work on something for a magazine that I genuinely love, but it also gave me the opportunity to work with the ever so lovely Claire Huish, the very talented Sophie of The Illustrated Nail and my good friend Akeela Bhattay again. When you're up very early on a Saturday and shooting on a rather chilly Hampstead Heath, it definitely helps to have good company around you!

In terms of styling, the shoot was a very easy one for me, as we were kindly given six incredible dresses by the jaw-droppingly talented Elisa Palomino to feature. Elisa's dresses are incredibly beautiful and intricate, so I wanted to keep the accessories simple and elegant, but still fitting for the 1920s style of the garments.

My photos for these behind the scenes pictures are a mix of ones from my DSLR and Instagram, so please excuse the funny mix of styles. If you fancy following me on Instagram for more sneaky picture fun, my username is frankieisswell.

The shoot went swimmingly, and we were so lucky to have such an fantastic model - the ever so beautiful and lovely Heidi from Premier. Not only did she look amazing in all of the pieces, but she did not complain at any point in the day, despite the fact she was wearing very little in freezing cold weather. What a trooper!

Thank you to the amazing team for making the day so brilliant and for helping to produce such phenomenal images! I've now seen the final shots, and they are just perfect. I promise to share them all with you as soon as the new issue of Lionheart Magazine is published.

I would also like to thank Elisa Palomino for lending us her incredible pieces, Push PR for letting me having free reign of their accessories cupboard and the wonderful Margaret of Penny Dreadful Vintage for letting us take refuge in her beautiful home!
