I would never pass up the opportunity to work with an inspiring and creative photographer. Maria McGrail (Mia) is one such photographer and it was a real pleasure to join her recently for a Saturday morning shoot. Based in Dublin Ireland Mia is a well know photographer who’s photos regularly grace the covers of magazines and fashion newspaper supplements .  For example: Tatler, Blow, 24 7, Sunday Wold and U magazines to name just a few.   While Maria is a gifted in almost every area of photography it’s fashion where Maria’s true genius comes out through her lens.

Working as a model you very quickly find out that good photographs usually come from the effort of a number of people who work together in a team to make the shoot happen.  This shoot was no different and Mia has brought together all the elements that are needed to make the magic happen and create amazing images.  Makeup was provided by the very talented Orla from Orla Maher Make Up and Hair by Joyce Clarke Henry.  Styling the shoot was renowned fashion blogger / stylist /  Lorna Claire Weightman presenter at StyleNation and the location was a very interesting space called the Joinery studio.

I hope all you lovers of fashion enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed posing for them.
