Vintage Rose: Caitlin

Last Sunday I had an amazing shoot with Caitlin who as soon as I saw her modelling portfolio, I knew that I had to work with her. She reminded me of a model of the Pre-Raphaelite art movement, such as Elizabeth Siddal, with her long red hair and freckled, pale complexion. She’s a very peaceful, serene person, and she definitely gave my images a dream-like quality.

We decided to work on Caitlin’s first look in my apartment courtyard, sunbathing on the grass, which was much nicer than being cooped up in my little university flat, trying to work with bad lighting and little natural sunlight. We then adjusted her hair and makeup in the grounds of Derby’s Kedleston Hall – again in the lovely sunshine.

I can’t help but notice that while there are strong Pre-Raphaelite influences, a few streaks of Alice in Wonderland-esque fantasy elements came into the images too, which was completely unplanned, as well as a few less surprising Art Nouveau tweaks. The grounds were laden with flowers, and we made sure to make the most of them all in as many ways as possible.
