Mother’s Day Photoshoot with CupiCamera

Leave it up to me to post my Mother’s Day Photoshoot after Father’s Day, but procrastination tendencies aside, I am so excited to finally share these photos! If I had to truly write about my mother all the blogs in the world wouldn’t be able to support the cyber weight of my praise. However, considering the nature of my blog I’ve decided to focus on one aspect only: fashion.

I grew up watching a Grace Kelly-like figure, do Mary Poppins-like activities around the house dressed like the editor of a high fashion magazine. I’m pretty sure my mom started wearing her hair in a bob before Anna Wintour did, or at least at the same time. One of my favourite games to play as a young girl was “shop-shop” using my Barbie cash register and my mother’s walk-in closet. The messes that I made in my parents’ master bedroom…but can having a room covered with exclusive boutique pieces really be considered a mess? I remember specific outfits and pieces of her wardrobe like a lime green knee-length leather jacket (it was around the time the Matrix was released) that she wore with a zebra striped chiffon blouse, black trousers and pointed knee-high boots. I know it sounds like an ensemble that will inevitably guarantee its creator a one-way ticket to Worst Dressed Station, but she pulled it off and looked chic as hell doing it. One of my favourite outfits was a pinstripe charcoal YSL-inspired jacket and trousers duo a lá Bianca Jagger (who was one of her fashion icons by the way) that she wore with a white blouse and one of my Dad’s ties that had Tweety all over it. My mother truly is as classic, elegant, chic and timeless as Chanel. Whatever the price tag on her clothes, be it Marc Jacobs or Milady’s, she always looks like a million bucks. She’s as fearless in fashion as she is in life and I can’t help but be inspired every time I look at her, can’t you?

As always, I had an absolute blast working with Deirdré. She truly has a talent for capturing candid and intimate moments, which is hard to do if you’re a posing princess like me 😉 She also does really cool photo packages like this one where you could choose between an A5 booklet with your favourite photos or have a canvas printed. My mother chose the latter and it came out absolutely beautifully! If only my walls weren’t already covered in frames of Deidré’s fabulous photos, I’d have ordered a few canvases as well!

Now, in the words of Harry Styles to his mother on her wedding day: Isn’t she lovely?
