behind the scenes

before & after interview with Sophie

1. Quite a few ladies travel fair distances to shoot with Helen McLean. Where did you travel from? “Canberra.” 2. Considering you’re an actress in the real world, did you still benefit from the direction Helen gave during the shoot? “Helen is wonderful to work with. She makes you feel at ease and it is also a highly collaborative process.” 3. Did you gain any useful knowledge from our experienced makeup and hair stylist, Candice DeVille? “Candice was also a pleasure to work with. From the moment I walked through the door I knew I was in good hands. They both work so well with each other and make you feel like a queen!” 4. Was the whole experience a nice way to have some ‘own time’? “ Absolutely! The shoot was a Christmas present from my parents and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.” 5. What style of shoot would you do next? “I would love to do a sassy Cabaret inspired shoot in black and white with hints of red.” 6. What would you say to a friend considering a shoot like this? “It is something every woman/couple should treat themselves to. Not only is it fun and enjoyable the end result is something you can keep forever. Helen McLean photography is better than Botox!!”

behind the scenes

before & after interview with Nicci

1. How did you react when you found out your husband bought you a shoot session? “I was totally surprised, excited and then to be honest a little terrified! I have never liked having my photo taken but loved the idea of the themed shoot, having my hair and make-up done and outfit styled. It was something I would never have thought to do for myself and was delighted to receive it as a gift.” 2. What feelings were you experiencing before, and then after your shoot? “Before the shoot I was really nervous, I’ve never been comfortable being in front of a camera but Helen’s friendly and comprehensive direction made me relax a little and try to have fun with it. After the shoot I still wasn’t convinced that the images would be as good as ones I had seen online, due to me being a poor model! And when I saw them, I couldn’t believe it was me, I looked relaxed, confident and smokin hot! I left the shoot feeling beautiful.” 3. Did you gain any useful knowledge from our experienced makeup and hair stylist, Candice DeVille? “I don’t think there are any women that couldn’t learn something about being glamorous from Ms Deville. I have always wanted to achieve a vintage look with my hair and make-up but have never had the courage to try, after seeing the results from one session with Candice I’m hooked! She is full of useful tips for authentic vintage looks and is an inspiration even to look at.” 4. Did you ever think you could look like a 1940s Hollywood movie star? “Never! Having watched on screen starlets like Vivien Leigh and Hedy Lamarr in awe, I look at the images from the shoot and I am so pleased, I look just like them.” 5. What would you say to a friend considering a shoot like this? “Stop considering and do it! You will love the images, it doesn’t matter how un-glamorous you are feeling, Helen and Candice will get it out of you.”
