We were both fans of Kirtsy Mitchell's photography and Dove suggested we use her as inspiration. So I did her makeup pale, with soft eyes and bold lips. I also loved the idea of covering her in autumn leaves, although everything was saturated from the pouring rain so we ended up only using a few. In the end it turned out perfect anyway.
The caterpillar eyebrows idea had randomly came to my mind a couple of weeks before this shoot so I was eager to test it out. And again my wonderful model remained totally calm as we placed the wriggling critters on her face.
Isaac did a great job as my assistant - holding the caterpillars, driving us to the location, keeping all of our gear dry, helping with lighting and keeping me on schedule!
