Foodprint 1011

Some time ago I did a serie of pictures for Foodprint 1011 with Floriane and a marzipan, sponge cake Longchamps handbag lookalike… It was great fun and now Foodprint is out.

Let her eat cake!

I noticed that lack of sleep usually puts me either in a lethargic state, or in a crazy adrenaline driven mode. Unfortunately, I can’t tell when which will happen so it’s down to luck really.
Thursday was one of those insanely busy yet brilliant days. And good for me, adrenaline driven.

There was the early wake-up call, the mad dash for the cake (over cobbled roads), the preservation of said cake (we’ve had a terrible weather so far but Thursday the sun decided to shine so I spent the drive back with the air co turned up to the max)… 
And then the shoot. Great fun girls! Sanne did a wonderful job on the make-up and styling and Floriane was so enthusiastic about munching on the cake I thought she hadn’t eaten for days.

And of course, thank you Petit Gateau for this masterwork!
Here are my two favorite images from the shoot, more will follow on www.stephaniefraikin.com.
 

Petit Gateau

Do you remember I was looking for a cake-artist the other day? Well, I found it!
I’ll be working together with Petit Gateau: an Antwerp based company specialized in all sorts of cakes (weddings, birthdays…).
They do an amazing work!
Why would you go to a (boring) local baker when you can have these for an afternoon High Tea?

So thanks to this collaboration, and if all goes well and the cake survives the car trip: the shoot will take place on Thursday with Floriane as model & Sanne de Wolf as MUA.
Keep posted, I’ll show the final image here in a few days…

Hedgren – This bag is mine

For this assignment, the aim was to create a special serie of images for the back to school collection of Hedgren. We planned the shoot in June, thinking the weather to be mild: it was freezing!
Despite the cold, I loved the atmosphere, the enthusiasm of the models (Lynn and Ellen) and the constant bouncing on/off ideas with Gunther, AD for Hedgren and former colleague.

As the two girls started fighting for the bags, the concept of the shoot came to life: This bag is mine.
