Tipperary Teacher, Aoife Walsh was crowned Miss Ireland for 2013. She was a very deserving winner too in my eyes and one of my favourite Miss Ireland’s to shoot. Her fantastic red hair adds to the quintessential Irish’ness about her and would do her proud on the Miss World stage. Unfortunately that didn’t work out for her, but she still had a great year as Miss Ireland and has plenty of modeling work here to keep her going.
It was great to get her down in studio for a shoot. We had done the usual Twitter and Facebook chats about doing a shoot and it eventually came together. A lot of time when trying to organise a shoot with people online, the interest can fizzle out. But not this time.
We had a great team on board for the shoot. Fellow Wexfordian Laura Mullett (http://www.lauramullett.com/) styled the shoot. I have worked with Laura before and she always brings fantastic style to shoot. Sophie Wong was at hand for fantastic Makeup for Aoife as well as Hair Styling. Sophie is also Wexford based, so it was a nice local team in studio.
It was a great shoot, covering lots of looks from some Raceday looks to some fashion and headshots. The shot above with the blue bodysuit from American Apparel is one my favs. It was actually a test shoot that turned out great. I just really liked Aoife’s post and expression…. I can’t remember what I was jabbering on about at the time, trying to keep her entertained while doing the test shots. I used my white setup and flash bracket for this shot.
