Velvet D'amour Photoshoot - Dreams Come True


A few weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of being photographed with Velvet D’Amour. Now I’m no model in any sense of the word, but do I like posing? Yes. Do I like a little bit of flattery and attention? As much as the next guy. So when Velvet announced she’d be photographing people in the UK I jumped at the chance. I had missed the last opportunity due to other commitments but there was no way I was missing out this time. My deposit was accepted, my time slot given and I arrived bright and early to not only meet my idol but be photographed by her.



The shoot it’s self was so easy. I thought I’d struggle with posing and facial expressions and that Velvet would get fed up and think I was crap. But it was nothing like that. Velvet (and her MUA Rachel Williamson) were so welcoming. We allocated time slots to each look and planned out what kind of feel we wanted with each. Velvet just has this creative eye and turns something bland in to something incredible. Her guidance with poses and facial expressions was so helpful and I felt she really pushed to get the best of my look for the photos.  Like I said I am no model. The idea of being a model is great but I know ultimately I’ll never be one. I do love however having my picture taken and looking good.

I just had to share my favourite images with you. Of course there are so many more I’d love to share but I purchased these as I felt they were striking and really got the best of me. I especially like the ID cover feel with one eye hide behind the leaves. Id there’s a cover here ready to be used? haha

The outfit details are below each image.










I really hope you love them as much as I do. I can’t wait to print them and frame them (Yes I am going to have pictures of myself in my room to gaze at haha.)

Look out for more shoots by Velvet on her Volup2 pages Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Do not miss the opportunity to photographed by her. She is the most incredible person and I really hope I do have the pleasure of meeting her again

Love
Michaela
