Lifestyle shoot with Bowe & Arrowe
Last summer I was lucky enough to photograph a lifestyle shoot with Bowe & Arrowe. This online boutique is founded by the lovely Candice and Cheryl, who are “a passionate pair of Mums who wanted to create something special for the little ones”. They sell the most beautiful leather shoes for pre walkers up to 18 months old, as well as cashmere hats for kids up to 6 years old.
On the morning of our shoot, which was due to take place in Wimbledon Common, the heavens opened up and made no sign of stopping anytime soon. Although I am not adverse to a bit of rain, other than making sure my camera stays dry, but when it comes to 5 x little ones in the park, this was not working in our favour. There was also the *small* detail that we needed their shoes to look great, and not full of mud from the get go.
We decided to switch our days around, and met up the next morning for the lifestyle shoot, while I shot all the website product shots that rainy afternoon. In what felt like a miracle from Mother Nature, the next morning was completely gorgeous, warm weather (gotta love London weather keeping us on our toes), which would make for a much easier shoot with a group of cuties under 2. In fact, I spend a good portion of the shoot, directing my new assistant (one of the willing Dads) to use my reflector to block the bright light on our little subjects.
Over the past few months, I have bought several pairs of Bowe & Arrowe shoes for friends with kids under 2 years old, and everyone who receives these as a gift, I receive a super excited message saying just how much they love them.
