Overgrown Beauty

Literally just got back from a week in Devon with my mini model where we went before in The Sunny Field post. However, this time the weather was horribly temperamental. Sun, warm, clouds, freezing, rain, rain and more rain. I was hoping to take a couple of new shots in the field from last time but unfortunately the crop had been gathered and all that was left was a large expanse of mushy dirt. So instead, we went with the weather and decided on a more overcast theme. 

It may not look like it but these three shots are collections from shoots done on three different days in three different locations. On the first day, the 1st and 3rd shots were taken during freezing cold, rainy weather. I do feel sorry for my mini model as I put her through a lot, but if she makes the pictures look good, thats fine. We had gone up to 'the feild' to have a look round but as the rain began to come down we were forced to run back. as we ran though, I grabbed out my camera, shielding it from the rain as I shouted to my  mini model - 'Quick! Stand over there!' or 'Hang off of that!' or 'Go down that ditch!' We were frozen half to death when we got back.

2nd 5th and 6th were taken on the second day in a beautiful piece of woodland - One of my most favourite places to go. There are beautiful little streams running throughout, bluebells readying to emerge and we even spotted a dear! A little haven in my view. Only thing wrong with it is that you have to walk down an incredibly steep hill to get to it which seems to drag on forever.  Fine going down, not so much coming back up. Oh yes, and as I found out on the trek back up (thanks to a sigh on a tree) - the piece of land was actually private. Terribly sorry for trespassing!

As is typical for english country weather, I thought we would go with wellies and coat for the shots. Both items of clothing belong to the mini model - I absolutely love her little black duffle coat, I believe she found it in a charity shop.


  1. These shots are awesome!
