Bel Ange & Carolyn Baxter Team up to create a Beautiful set for the calendar.

Here you can watch the shoot taking place on Carolyns very own YouTube channel.

At a recent photoshoot for project Bel Ange, Miss Carolyn Baxter was very kind in letting us model her new collection for the calendar.
Her gowns are just absolutely stunning and we all felt amazing in them. they were absolutely perfect for the calendar.

Carolyn makes dresses for the likes of Miss Universe, Miss Great Britain and Miss Scotland contestants so it was an honour to model them.
Her beautiful dresses are handmade to perfection and every one is individual and just gorgeous!

Miss baxter also has her very own YouTube Channel, featuring tips on fashion and beauty. Carolyn is also an amazing TV personality, with over 1 million views on her YouTube channel and having presented New Look TV.

This is one multi-talented lady, Carolyn you are amazing!

Bel Ange - In Loving Memory of Kienna

As you all know by now I have been working on Project Bel Ange for a couple of months with Gillian Gamble. Recently we went to meet the printers to talk about prices, how much the calendar is going to cost to make and the layout of the calendar etc. It was great to see all the pieces finally coming together, to talk about all our hard work in the past few months coming together to make the end product. We only have a couple more shoots to do now until the calendar is finished and ready to send off to the printers. The support we have had has been just so amazing and everyone involved will be receiving a really big thank you from myself.

When my baby niece Kienna passed away on the 9th of May 2011, the devastation was indescribable, there is just no words that can describe losing such a beautiful and healthy baby that we all thought would go on to live happy days with us like her big sister. But the love we all felt for Kienna and the way in which she taught us how precious life is, made me want to turn the grief into action.

I have always been fascinated with photography and the fact that it freezes a moment in time, A moment in time that you can look at forever. When Kienna died, we all wished that we could have frozen the time that we had her here with us, we took lots of photos because we knew that it would be all we had left to look at her beautiful face and remember her by. So when thinking about what I could do to turn our grief into action, I knew I wanted it to be something to do with beautiful photographs, and as this is my line of work I knew I could make it happen with the many people I know in the Industry. This is when I came up with the idea of a Charity Calendar Project with an Angel Theme, and from there Project Bel Ange commenced.

When I realised that I could turn sadness into action with this Project I got to work straight away and threw myself into creating this calendar with the help of Gillian Gamble. I have styled all the shoots for the calendar on my own and some with the help of Gillian, I have enjoyed giving little girls who have never modelled before, the chance to get some beautiful photographs of them taken, to freeze that moment in their childhood, to look back at them and remember their beauty while remembering Baby Kienna also. Most of the models I have used in the Calendar were affected by the death of Baby Kienna and would have been in Kienna's life today, which makes the calendar all the more special. The other models in the calendar are girls who I have met in the industry who are just so genuine and lovely and that is why I have chosen them to be a part of the calendar.

I will be keeping everyone regularly updated with the goings on of the calendar, how we are getting on with it and what stage its at. When the calendar is available to buy I will let you all know.
All proceeds go to SANDS, the Stillbirth And Neonatal Death charity.

Success comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it!

Well I have been so busy recently that I have barely had any time to eat or sleep!
After wakening up yesterday morning to discover I have lost almost HALF A STONE in weight, I was feeling extremely miserable!

But anyway I plodded on and showed up to my shoot with the AMAZING Sian Lidgate, Abi Leeland and the one and only Derrick Argent. This was the first time I was to work with Sian and I was beyond excited, her work is truly Awesome!

When I got there Abi and Sian were all set up and raring to go, their enthusiasm perked me up and we got to work, they did a time lapse of the make up and hair being done so that will be awesome to see once its uploaded!

Sian you are one SUPER TALENTED individual!!!
We finished in record time and from what I could see on the back of the camera the shots looked TRES COOL! I cannot wait to see them! Derrick Argent - EXPECT some pestering :P

THANK YOU to you all for cheering me up and making me beautiful!
I cannot wait to work with you guys again.

Here is a shot or two from behind the scenes.


After this shoot I ran home, washed my hair and headed off to shoot for the wonderful Pokey Hat with Miss Jennifer Welford.

Jen is the most fun and stylish little lady, and frankly I love her to bits! Her team is amazing and we always have such a laugh about the silliest things at our photoshoots, thanks to our lovely hairstylist Paul with his collection of hilarious pics and videos and naughty Dappys!! LOL.

Jennifer is doing incredibly well for the Pokey Hat and its just getting bigger and better all the time, She works her little socks off and never complains. Personally, Jennifer I think you should just become my very own stylist :P

Here is a couple of previews...

I LOVE this Reverse American Shirt and Traingle Stud Kimono available to buy at

Project 'Bel Ange'

Well I know I haven't updated in a while 'n all and I should probably be updating in the right order BUT I couldn't resist.

Today we had the most AMAZING shoot for my 'Bel Ange' Charity Calendar, We shot at THE most gorgeous location ever, it was just perfect for the calendar.
07.45 am and the wonderful Mr David Farquhar arrives at my house for hair and make-up with his lovely assistant and they waste no time in getting straight to work. Shortly afterwards Miss Carolyn Baxter arrived with the most STUNNING dresses ever! And then not long behind her was our beautiful models Miss Lauren Jamieson & Miss Stephanie Ramsay.
David and Yvonne done a wonderful job on hair & make-up and David brought a gorgeous hair piece for me to wear, I love working with David, he always strives for perfection and I love his make-up artistry skills!
Being the first time I met Carolyn in person today, she was just the most lovely little lady and very talented too, this is one to watch. Definitely big big things to come for Carolyn and her beautiful designs!
I met Lauren Jamieson at a fashion show in June this year and she has such a striking beauty and such a lovely person, ever since I came up with the idea for the calendar Lauren has been at the top of the list as someone I really wanted to appear in the calendar and I am so thankful that she took the time to come to today's shoot as I know she is a very busy girl.
Stephanie Ramsay has such a cute look and after seeing her recent modelling photos I had her in my sights for the calendar. Stephanie's auntie also suffered the loss of a baby and Stephanie has done lots of work for charity, I am so glad to have her appear in the calendar in memory of the little baby girl lost in her family too.

When everyone was ready we went to out location to meet the legendary Miss Gillian Gamble who was waiting there for us patiently, camera in hand. Gillian has shot every image for the calendar so far with complete perfection. Here is a preview of today, photo from behind the scenes by Carolyn Baxter.

Thank You to all my team today, you are all so amazing! I am so grateful for all the work you have all put in to make my calendar happen.

More photos coming soon.

Rest In Peace Our Angels.
Love Forever

9/11 We Will Remember

For the husband who told his wife he loved her before his plane went down in a field. For the wife who stopped in the stairs to call her husband to say she will love him forever. For the mothers and fathers who kissed their kids goodbye that morning for the last time. For the policemen, firemen, and other rescue workers who rushed in to help others and lost their lives. For the soldiers who fought back and made the ultimate sacrifice. Today, tomorrow, ten years from now, we will remember xxx ♥
