Behind the scenes of our first Petties Jewellery Shoot
November 20, 20162 min read
Our first photoshoot for our new Petitesrange of jewellery was something I was super excited about getting involved in, all I had to do was find a super cute little girl, a location, photographer and make sure we had all our samples right?! Kind of. That was until I realised how much little kids HATE staying still for longer than 3 seconds. Eek, aannndd our gorgeous model was not even 2.... Team that with some teeny tiny items of jewellery that require the most patience to shoot at the best of times and we were in for a challenge! I was lucky that our amazing photographer Olivia Martin-Mcguire was all over it, having 2 little girls herself and we managed to make some magic!
Arriving like a Princess, Alexa was straight into wanting to look like a star, almost begging to get her jewels as soon as she saw them! Once we had her looking spic & span, we were into action. Keeping Alexa busy by painting her nails, playing with bubbles, getting into the garden and a fair few snacks, she was extremely patient. Not short of a few juices, chocolate shakes, fruit platters and cookies, gorgeous Alexa was a top-starring model.
Just like her Mum, we can see her on the big stage & breaking hearts in no time at all! Here is a selection of shots we got from behind the scenes and you can see the final edit by clicking here.
Like a true model, we made sure Alexa had all her favourite treats on set from The Shady Shack which made for one happy girl!

If you're a travel-lover like us (dur - who isn't), then there's a high chance you are already following Brodie from @locationlost over on instagram where she shares her life on the road, living out of her **super stylin** van with her partner Nick & cute pooch Quinn.

Nothing quite beats a delicious Soba Noodle Salad. They're often rare to find out and about but when you find one, with the perfect dressing - Oooh wee it's a jolly good feeling, one you want to bottle up & come back to meal after meal. And so with the emphasis on food & sharing around Christmas, I wanted to do exactly that.
