Layla | The Face of Christmas 2012

After winning ‘The Face Of Christmas 2012’ (a Facebook competition spanning nearly 10 months) it was time to do the photo shoot with the winning little lady…gorgeous Layla.

Once Layla had been confirmed as the winner, me and her Mum Rupa, brainstormed ideas about what we should do for the Christmas shoot. We drew inspiration from one of Leo’s (my Christmas model for the last 4 years) Christmas shoots. Once the idea was decided I visited a few locations near to Layla’s family home. We decided to go with the gorgeous Virginia Water Lake in Surrey for the backdrop for the shoot.

On a cold but sunny Sunday we ventured off to the lake to create the Christmas video below. The video is a culmination of many stills taken that have been joined together to form a moving video. We’re very proud of the results and I can’t thank Layla’s Mum- Rupa, Dad- Tony and big brother- Bryn enough for all their effort and enthusiasm. Layla herself was an absolute star!

So turn up you speakers, press play on the video below and enjoy! Do let us know what you think.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year to one and all.
