Jane Lyons – Date with Fate

130218--093

A few months ago, you might have seen a show on RTE2 called “Date with Fate”. It was a pilot for a new kind of dating show that shows you how your potential suitors would look when they are a lot older. Tipperary girl Jane Lyons was the female interest in that show. She has the tough job of picking a suitor from judging them years in the future.  The blurb goes as follows:

“Imagine you were single and you had the unique opportunity to take a look in a romantic crystal ball and see how life might possibly look 30 years down the track with a potential partner? It’s the ultimate speed date. Well RTÉ Two is giving one singleton that unique opportunity, in Date With Fate, the new dating show that takes the chance out of romance.

The shoot was a press shoot for the Irish Sun to coincide with the show airing. Unfortunately I don’t think the show was a success and it didn’t get past the pilot stage…. but at least we got to shoot with it 🙂 . The Flutter On By Styling  (http://www.flutteronby.com/)  Team of Nicole and Shauna Spain can take the credit for pulling this shoot together. They organised Jane, the styling and Make-Up artist, Emma-Rose Howard. Some of the lingerie was from Change Lingerie and some was from Dolls & Dreams.

The dresses for the shoot were supplied by Glitterati Boutique. They are a dress hire company based in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford, which is just out the road from me. So it was great to be working with local people on shoots. The dress above looks stunning on Jane. We ran out side the studio for a quick shot while the Sun came out to play for a few minutes. Being Ireland and being early February though, it was very cold and we only stayed out for less than 5 minutes.

It was great working with Jane.  As well as being stunning, she is also currently a model with Primadonnas Agency, so that made the shoot very easy. The rests of the team were great also. Shauna was her usual fantastic self with Hair and Nicole worked her styling magic.  I have worked with Nicole and Shauna a few times now on various shoots, but it was the first time I worked with Emma-Rose and she done a great job.

If you want to check out the show, it is available to view on YouTube. You can find a trailer for it below 🙂

Esmé Wallace – Miss Sunday World 2012

The title of “Miss Sunday World” is a prestigious one. It is one of the roads for a woman to becoming Miss Ireland. The Miss Sunday World crown has been held previously by Rachel Wallace, Niamh Cullen and the outgoing Miss Sunday World, Esmé Mansergh Wallace. Esmé won the title this time last year and done a fantastic job representing the paper. She has now just handed over her title to the 2013 Miss Sunday World, Emma Cronin who will go one to compete for the 2013 Miss Ireland Title, currently held by Rebecca Mcgauire

It was a great fun shoot. Esmé is such a lovely person to deal with. She was telling me how she had to take a few months out from modelling after she broke her arm/collar-bone when she fell off a horse. Horse Riding is a bit part of her life by the way.

Hair and Make-up was done by the Fabulous Make-up by Aimee. If you follow my little blog here, you will know that I work with Aimee a lot. She is fantastic to work with. She provides a full make-up service from big groups for parties right down to giving workshops.
