I had so much fun collaborating on my most recent photo shoot with Perth-based model Heidi Anne. I wanted to share some of the fun we had behind the scenes together and give you an insight into what a photo shoot is about and how much thought goes into each and every photo.
With photo shoots there is a lot more than meets the eye! This particular day as you can see from the video and the audio was windy, cold at times and the glare of the sun made it difficult. Of course once I’m there and in my element, there is nothing I enjoy more! Also it helps if you have an awesome team, in this case we did. As a model it allows your mind to focus just on the photo shoot – when the makeup, hair, styling and behind the scene photos and video are organised for you.
Meet the Team
We had the pleasure of working with the crew below, check out the video Adam Murby filmed and edited at the YouTube link and see the results from the shoot. The links to all the products Heidi and I wore are linked at the end of this post.
And finally here’s a sample of the professional images and looks we shot for the day:
Look 1: Khongboon Swimwear
This company is from Thailand and their pieces are all super cute and unique to anything else you will find out there. I love Khongboon’s patterns, bright colours and interesting cuts. They just brought out a new collection too, I’m dying to get my hands on some of their latest season pieces.

Look 2: Crochet pieces with Chynna Dolls Swim, White Fox Boutique and bling by Gypsy Lovin Light
The next look we went for was crochet! I absolutely love wearing crochet pieces in summer and Chynna Dolls Swim is definitely the first company I think of when I want to wear crochet – they have incredible cuts in pretty much every colour you can imagine. We teamed the crochet with some beautiful gold pieces from Gypsy Lovin Light and we were all set to shoot. I think we pretty much nailed it with the shot below!

Elise (right) is wearing – CROCHET BIKINI by Sheridyn and Andi Bagus
Look 3: Brights and cheeky cuts with Ark Swimwear
Ark Swimwear is an Australian company and these are my go-to bikinis for lounging around the pool or beach. The material is super silky and all about comfort whilst flattering curves and all at a great price! When you add that with striking colours like bright orange, greens, blues and purples or even your standard black and white – you have a winning combination! Plus they offer super cut cuts from cheeky, to brazilian and even in-between (hybrid).

All in all it was a successful collaboration and I got to spend quality time with my girl Heidi Anne and had a super fun day with the team! Follow my Instagram page @elise_natalie to see all the professional shots from @blownoutimaging as they are released.
In terms of my next post, stay tuned! I head to Yangon and Ngwe Saung Beach in Myanmar on Valentines Day Eve, and I will be sharing my travel experiences with you all in a couple of weeks time!
Until next time,
Elise Natalie xoxo
