“Let’s go buy an ice-cream and a magazine with an attitude
and put on a cassette, we can pretend that you’re a star
cos life’s so very simple just like la-la-la…”
Roxette ‘June Afternoon’

Regular readers of my Blog will have seen Melissa featured here quite often.  I do hope you’re not getting tired of seeing her.  I could certainly never get tired of photographing her.  Never in a million years!

Well, it’s summer here in the UK, supposedly, so I thought I’d post some shots from a fun set with Melissa.

So, we were driving to the studio when Melissa asked me to stop at a supermarket as she needed to get something.  In she went and she returned clutching a box of ice lollies, saying that she had this idea that she wanted to be photographed with lollies.  I’m always happy to oblige, and the photos below were the result.

We had to work quite quickly as the ice lollies were already starting to thaw out and melt a little by the time we arrived at the studio.  I setup the studio lights and checked exposures while Melissa got changed and made-up.

I like the photos, however it was very much a spur of the moment shoot.  With more planning I think we would have got something different.  But sometimes it’s good fun to just roll with it and see what happens.  You have to have fun with your photography and every shoot is fab with Melissa.
