It’s getting chillier and chillier with every day, so we know it’s the perfect time to share this beautiful inspiration shoot from Debbie Lourens, Blank Canvas, and Leipzig. It’s ideal for that time of the year where autumn is gently lapsing into winter, where there are still enough lovely flowers to pick but there might also be specks of snow floating around. And can we talk about that incredible headpiece?

From the photographer, Debbie Lourens: We were inspired by the movie ‘Frozen’ and using that as our starting point our idea began to evolve into a whimsical shoot that celebrates all things snow and frost. We chose our models loosely based upon the theme of the blonde ice queen and her red-head sister and we accessorised them with crystals and feathers and layers of snow. Our colour scheme included warm, as well as cold colours to provide a rich, textural palette and to bring depth into the icy winter wonderland we were aiming to create. The wonderful indigenous plants and flowers we used gave an amazing South African spin to the fairytale and the use of raw wood made us think of a mysterious forest covered in snowflakes.
