Annabelle Chapple // Wistman's Wood, UK // 06.2017
When Annabelle first messaged me, I was definitely up for a photoshoot but I honestly didn't quite know what to expect. I didn't know if we would hit it off or whether it would be quite awkward. I didn't know if she would show up fully glammed up in a dress and heels or be quite down-to-earth and natural. But from the moment I stepped into her car, I was so glad she chose me as her photographer!
We decided to shoot on Dartmoor because - hey, it's at our doorstep, might as well. And the location wows me every single time that I shoot there. The fresh air, no cell reception and being surrounded by wild animals and nature is absolutely breathtaking.
Annabelle and I hit it off immediately. Actually from my end it felt like we had known each other for a while - conversation flowed smoothly and as we have some similarities there weren't many awkward silences. And she told me she hadn't really ever been in front of the camera before, but you couldn't tell could you? She's such a natural!
Annabelle claimed that she loved a good adventure so I decided to take her up on that. I asked her to climb a few trees, run over a river as well and we even did a bit of a hike. But it was all worth it for these images.
This chick is seriously such a wonderful inspiration to be around and I am so glad to have met her. She's going to make it big and be changing the world in no time at all, so watch out everyone - you'll be hearing more about her in the future! x
