On Friday I got to draw a big red line through one of the items on my photography bucket list and can happily say that ‘photo shoot in an empty swimming pool’ has been well and truly done thanks to general maintenance at Catmose Sports Centre.  When they called to tell me that my daughters swimming lesson would be cancelled this weekend because they had to drain the pool, I said “Great! Any chance I can take photos in it?!”

And I wasn’t the only one who was excited either, Jody from ‘Don’t Settle Petal‘ jumped at the chance to be a part of it. Not only is she a very talented florist, she’s also an awesome model and aced every part of it. I’m particularly loving her decision to add pink to her hair this week because it stood out perfectly from the blue of the pool!

Dresses came from the love that is Katie Dell Designs and even though we got them a little bit wet, no dresses were harmed during the duration of the shoot! You should totally check out her new collection as there are some beautiful pieces in there and her separates are stunning.

Here is how my shoot in an empty swimming pool turned out…

Thanks to all those involved in bringing this to life and big thanks to Tim Dunk Photography too who is a wonder to bounce ideas off and a very charming light stand. Couldn’t have done it without him. xx
