La Toriana has had the honour of being part of the BENDIGO MAGAZINE and the kids fashion shoot and do a “behind the scenes” blog post. We were lucky enough to supply to the designer children’s clothing from La Toriana for this cute little girl.
The fashion stylist (Esther) chose the stunning Winter 2010 Tea Princess pink bow beanie, Harem pants , and the boat neck white lace top also from Tea Princess. Everything was worked out well, and you can easily see the team work flowed with ease to help create the look for the magazine they were looking for.
A very professional team and such a pleasure to work with.
Its always hard for some kids when doing a shoot for the first time. There are camera’s, lights, people, a strange environment and not knowing what to expect can be very daunting. Esther is a delight in helping make the kids feel at ease with her friendly nature and her humour. The lollipops help too afterwards… and she even snuck one to Tiana (yep, my assistant, when I wasn’t looking)
(just check out that gorgeous smile from Esther (below left).
David Fields the photographer is super talented and really knows how to get the best out of the kids. Our little model was a little shy and timid, but David soon worked a little magic and had her smiling and feeling so much more comfortable. He takes the time to chat with the kids, get to know them and have a little fun along the way…..
He makes it all look so easy!
The finished product in the mag is beautiful (below), and I am sure this little girls mum would have been so proud, just as I was with her representing La Toriana and the Tea Princess collection this Winter.
Kids fashion shoots can go really smoothly, or can go pear shaped. This session went extremely well. Shows with an experienced team, relaxed atmosphere and professionals who know what they are doing… all falls into place beautifully.
If you haven’t already, you MUST check out the latest Bendigo magazine.
David takes some photo’s whilst the parents of the kids, the Sarah (editor), Esther and Maggie all are there to help ensure everything goes well. David takes it all in his stride and the kids all have a ball waiting for their turn.

The Bendigo pottery, the location for these shots is an amazing place. A great place to take the family, for the kids to do activities in the school holidays and for events. Tiana (above) catches up on a little reading about the history of the kilns whilst watching the photo shoot take place.
