So you might have noticed something a little bit different than usual. I'm not the one on in the photos, this time I'm behind the camera! This post is brought to you in collaboration with Uniqlo letting you guys know all about the person behind the camera, in my case it's my boyfriend Dan. So lets hand it over to the man himself for his tips and tricks on taking the perfect blogger photos...

"I wouldn't at all call myself a photographer of any sort, but I do have some tricks I often use when helping Daisy out with her blog photos. First off, I’m a bit inpatient so when shooting outside I like to use the auto setting more often than not (cheater). The unpredictable weather over here can mean a cloud, wind or rain totally changes the feel of a photo. It will also effect how Daisy will pose or change her outfit slightly. Even if this isn't what she had in mind, you can often end up with an unexpected gem of a photograph. 

When shooting inside or at night, things get a bit more technical; the auto settings don’t often react well to artificial lighting that you can’t control. So seeing as Daisy has more knowledge, I just let her set the camera the way she likes and I snap away. The final photos are edited very subtly by Daisy and make all the difference.

Daisy knows how she likes to pose. After shooting her plenty of times, I've become a bit of a dab hand at noticing the finer details on an outfit, make-up or hair and she takes directions really well if I point out something that doesn't look right . . . which makes things easier for me."

So that's it, I hope you liked this post and found some tips you'd might like to try out for yourself! I'll be back next week with a lifestyle and fashion post!

Little Red (Part two)

These photos are a continuation from another shoot based on Little Red riding hood which you can see here. I shot these photos in Birmingham at Winterbourne Gardens which was a great recommendation from my house mate. It's so pretty there if you're ever in the area you must go and the cakes from the tearoom were pretty good too. We were so lucky with the weather as every day that week it had rained, so luck was definitely on my side. The lovely model is Liv from What Olivia Did, styling and photography was done by me!

I'm so fancy, you already know

Boho Tile Collar Dress c/o Tk Maxx 

qed london tk maxx  UK bloggers

This dress is perfect for that awkward transition from winter to spring as the long sleeves make it perfect to wear on those bright but chilly days. I'd also wear this with a pair of tights during the cold weather. As the weather begins to get warmer you'll be able to wear this with just a pair of cute ankle boots and maybe a pair of frilly socks. Perfect for sunny days out! I was kindly gifted this gorgeous 60's inspired dress by the people over at TK Maxx. 
Everything I seem to be buying at the moment is blue, I guess it's my way of trying to inject a bit of colour into my wardrobe other than my staple black and white. Although I shouldn't be buying anything at the moment, I always find it all the best pieces are in the shops when I'm not meant to be spending. 
Does anyone else find that or is that just my inner shopaholic speaking?

Here's what I wore:

Snow White.

Last week I shot Hannah for my current university project which is based on fairytales. This shoot was loosely based on Snow White, with this specific shoot I really focused on the styling to get this theme across. The styling inspiration behind this was Disney's Snow white. All clothes from this shoot are from Topshop and ASOS. Click on the images to enlarge/see them in a higher resolution.
