New Plymouth Portrait Shoot - Jess



New Plymouth Portrait Photography - Julia Moore-Pilbrow Photographer

So there is a very awesome treasure trove of dresses at the New Plymouth Operatic Society here in Taranaki, which for some in-explainable reason I had never thought to use for a new plymouth portrait shoot before. So Jess and I spent a bit of time (ok maybe a few hours - curtailed only by childcare needs) trawling through their vast offerings of clothing to find some really different dresses for her shoot. They have everything - from crazy flapper dresses, to unique ball offerings (a few girls were in while I was there picking out ball dresses, very cool) to pirate costumes to really whatever you can think of, including this amazing vintage wedding dress collection - hopefully some bride out there reads this and decides to go in and have a look (they're out the back so you'll have to ask) and I'll get to photograph one of those dresses one day! I have to say I wasn't sold when Jess showed me the gold 70s style dress she had picked out, but it came out amazingly on camera, picking the light up beautifully...
