Audrey Hepburn’s Not Dead

Posted on 28th March 2016 in fashion, lifestyle, portraits & headshots

Her stage name is Audrey Hipturn (fb), cause she’s fancy like that. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph her a few times now that she’s relocated to Vancouver. I don’t think there’s anybody else I shoot who comes as close to shooting pinup as shooting with Audrey does. The last shoot we did I had to pause halfway through it and get on her case for trying to make me shoot such a thing!

Most of the stuff we shoot together leans more to the boudoir side of things, so it’s not posted on this site (see here), but this one sure was!

If it’s not immediately evident, this shoot was based on Audrey Hepburn’s role in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, from 1961.

It was funny. The hair was all done, the dress was on, and we pulled out the cigarette holder and then we both looked at each other: “Did you bring a cigarette?!” Luckily, when I ran downstairs I found a lovely couple who, before I managed to explain the full concept of the shoot – both of their jaws hanging slightly ajar – pulled out a cigarette and handed it to me.

Hair was done by Kristi Farr of the East Vanity Parlour (fb) (see the EVP hair shoot I did with them here, and other shoots EVP has helped me on).

Dress was supplied by Amy Meraki.
