'Runaway' Shoot

One of my recent popular photos was the following:

So I thought I might provide some background info and outtakes from the escapade :)

It was absolutely freezing this day! I was out in my garden in a very thin white dress, so needless to say it was rather chilly! If you look closely at the image above you may be able to see the goosebumps on my arms >.<

Using a cold light effect on my camera, I tried to create a dark and hostile atmosphere, wearing white to create a ghostly effect.

 My cats got in the way A LOT, as usual. They can't resist a runaround in the garden.

My boyfriend was doing the photographing. He kept having to pass me my shoes so that I could move around to other parts of the garden, which I imagine got quite annoying towards the end...
All in all I loved the way the photos turned out, and might fix some more of them up in the future :)

Fancy a spot of trampolining, anyone? XD

Snow Shoot! :D

A few months back, when the snow was still EVERYWHERE, my sister and I decided to do a shoot out in the garden...

We tried to capture a little vintage-fairy-tale magic. And despite the fact that our outfits were definitely not suitable for the weather, it was so much fun and we managed not to freeze to death!

I got the idea from the coats we owned, which are extremely similar in style even though we bought them at different times. Mine is actually the cream, although we swapped for the shoot.


I had wanted to do a Little Red Riding hood shoot for ages so I got my chance :) My sister, Katy, and I chose the outfits together from a combination of her clothes. Our shoes were a pair of nude courts for me and a stunning pair of sparkly black stilettos for Katy. Too bad the snow was too deep to do them justice!

These you've seen so far are the photos straight off the camera, no editing. I chose a special couple to do some extra work on for my portfolio:

Hope you like them!

To the Point!

Are you sitting comfortably? :)

I suppose I should open with a tad about myself. I am Sara (pronounced Sarah), 20 (but don't feel that old), and a student studying a degree in English Language while secretly dreaming of becoming an architect (don't worry; I'm working on that one!)

I originally created this blog to accompany my online photography portfolio on DeviantART -

But newcomers are most welcome! Here you will find all my most recent photography experiments - projects, shoots, practices, everything - the stuff that makes it onto DeviantART, and stuff that doesn't. I am by no means a pro, but always keen to learn.

I also love to dabble in drawing, writing and crafts (primarily plushie-making), so no doubt you'll be subjected to some of that stuff too ;)

So please feel free to follow - I would love to support you too ^-^

To start you off, here's a crazy little picture of me:
