it was 9:30pm and we were just chilling after dinner when i asked my sister, haynam, to do a photoshoot with me. i had ordered a home studio set off ebay for just a whopping £23 and borrowed some lightboxes off my friend – and i was dying to put it all to use. my sister has a crazy schedule packed with music rehearsals and performances, and i only had two days at home before i went back to uni.

so it was pretty much now or never…

i did my sister’s makeup for her, packed on a cheeky set of false eyelashes, and placed our kitchen stool onto the set for her to pose on. it was a rare occassion that our vase had flowers in it so i scooped them up as a prop for my sister to model with.

we were both relatively tired at this point, i had no idea what i was doing, my sister has no modelling experience whatsoever, and i felt as though my creative juices had kind of dried up. which leads me to being so surprised at how well these photos turned out!

this was my first attempt shooting on a studio set and i have yet to learn a lot about lighting and processing these images (thank you youtube), but i’d say it wasnt tooooo far off from what i had hoped for.
