The Word Bird

This shoot was only two weeks ago so you can imagine how cold this little birdy was! Sky’s beautiful tattoo was to be captured in a set of revealing images and despite the sub zero temperatures I suggested that we use a natural habitat backdrop for the peacock and its feathers.

So Sky came armed with leaves and with peacock blue eyes. My extremely elderly neighbourhood didn’t quite know what had hit it as I photographed a firey haired, NUDE lady in my back garden!

Sky has been life modelling for years so she’s not a shy bairn. But the real reason for the shots was to capture her tattoo which symbolises her passion for poetry and celebrates her fantastic success of ‘The Word Bird’ poetry business offering poetry workshops and performances in the region.
