Audrey, Grace and Jane || A Collective Editorial in Victoria BC

This collective editorial shoot started with a dress purchased last summer from GT Vintage Parlour that was orginally intended to be my wedding dress. I believe however that the true purpose was to fulfil this insprational, awe-inspiring editorial shoot of three amazing women: Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Jane Austen.
As luck would have it Lisa stumbled upon the other two dress at True Value Vintage and from that an idea was born.
"We wanted to create intimate portraiture of uniquely charming iconic women still relevant today. Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Jane Austin are women who taught, by example, what a lady was: a vessel of grace and gravity, ready wit, eldritch charm: women whose greatest discretion as to hide their awareness of splendour". ~Ophelia Photography.

Audrey/Amy~ Effortlessly Chic, stunning eyes and rich dark hair.. Amy was blended to perfection, full dramatic lashes, liner and the perfect lip. Lady Danger red/orange was the perfect contrast with the soft elements and striking features.
Jane/Corrie~ Innocent and timeless, gorgeous, beauty and youth. Blended, soft, clean and defined with a hint of drama in the lash (ok lots of lash but I love lashes). 
**Corrie was extremely sick during this shoot which why there isn't enough of her..she was an industry pro and Tyra herself would have been proud!**
Grace/Me~ Chic, romantic, grace.. Black Gel liner,over lined with Rich browns, golds, highlighted champagnes and whites.. 
I wanted the bottom lash to be a focus with pulled out liner and bottom lashes added for extra fullness in the eye. Johnna from Everlash Studio applied the perfect amount of volume and length to my top lash extensions.
