Behind the shot #2: Rosie Hardy

June 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I first met Rosie last year when I booked her for my anniversary photshoot (a little tradition that my husband Paul and I have decided to start) we got on so well that we became friends. Actually I defy anyone to not get on well with Rosie she is a wonderfully sweet human being who is just so much fun to be around.

Earlier this year we were chatting online planning to meet up for dinner and a catch up and we decided to go out shooting first. It was freezing cold and so so windy but we headed up to one of my favourite spots, Higgar Torr, just outside Sheffield. After fueling up on hot chocolate in my campervan we donned inappropriate clothing and Rosie attempted to hold a paper crown on her head without it blowing away for a beautiful 'forgotten fairytale' shot she wanted to try and get.

We climbed up the Torr and spent an hour or two shooting each other occasionally hiding from the wind back in the van. I got this shot just as the light was fading and the wind had died down a little.

Sometimes the worst weather makes for the most beautiful images
