Zarina (Premier Model Management), London, Saturday 23rd March 2013.

A little Spring shoot we* did with (super new) Danish model Zarina a couple of weeks ago. And when I say spring I mean that was what it said on the calender.... because in reality it was more like the depths of winter. It snowed and sleeted. All day. And it was dark. And cold. So we huddled Zarina up in my giant cape-coat between shots, put a hot water bottle on her feet and plied her with lots of cups of scolding hot tea. I think Zarina was very happy that her shoot later that day was in a warm, cosy studio ;)

*Make up artist: Jessica Mejia 
(Adore working with these super talented girls)
