The re-branding of D'amor has been a year long dream that has finally come to life and today I get to share my vision, my dreams and my passion with the world. A lot has changed since I started D'amor in 2011, I have grown so much as an individual and as a business woman. I have discovered who I am as an artist and learned to appreciate the person I was made to be and the way I view the world. Since then I completed my degree in photography, married my childhood crush and best friend.
It was time to express all these inner changes through my business, as I strongly believe that personal touch is a key element to connect with clients while providing them with a professional service or product. To me, it is important that my clients identify with my style as well as my personality, as we will be doing a lot of pretty things together!
Nadia, from Creative Heroes , is the lady behind all the pretty branding of D'amor and the one who helped me to express all those inner changes. A very big THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, I really wouldn't have done it without you!!
To celebrate this new era of D'amor I decided to do a styled shoot that would represent D'amor and communicate my vision to the world. With the help of some of my favourite industry suppliers we created a shoot that I am very proud of, despite many challenges!
Ezalle from Myrtle Events and Styling help me put together the concept for the shoot, after sharing many Pinterest images, emails and coffee dates we came up with a concept that would communicate the perfect balance between a soft romantic and a modern clean look. And the fun started! Ezalle also did all the styling and floral design for the shoot! She is an amazingly talented woman!!
Our model for the shoot was the fabulous Anke Heymans, this lady is a dream to photograph. Her inner beauty shines through in an extraordinary way and I am so thankful for her always being willing to model for me.
Zanne from Zanne Couture offered to design and make a dress especially for the re-brand shoot of D'amor... she is amazing!!
She created the flowy skirt with meters of mesh and a lace trim that makes for a beautiful soft look. The white lace is lined with a blush to create a feminine feel and to add dimension to the dress. The back is low with straps covered in lace leaves and flowers and a velvet belt was added to emphasises the waist and add some texture which is one of her signature styles.
The most beautiful make-up artist, Missy, from Missy make-up Artist was kind enough to finish off the look with the perfect hair and make-up. Lorean Jewellery Design gave us modern jewellery pieces that would compliment the look.
My heart is overflowing with joy and I am truly humbled by each and every one of you who made this shoot and re-brand possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being part of this new start and for believing in D'amor!!
Cheers to a new start, to new adventures and a bright future!!
Lots of Love xxx
