Behind the Scenes at the Francesco Group Photo Shoot With 'Mini Cara' Harley Chapman and Silver Londoner

Not Dressed As Lamb at the Francesco Group photo shot (Photo: Kate Brooks @katebrookscreative)
You may have seen on my Instagram feed a photo shoot that the husband, Silver Londoner, and I were part of for hairdressing group the Francesco Group earlier in the year. As their "Time to Shine" collection has now launched I have some behind the scene photos and stills from the video they made about the day to share with you. It actually took me a while to recognise myself in the black and white photo above - the lighting made me look like a blonde...!

Their idea was to use "internet sensations" (their phrase, not mine - I'm hardly one of those yet) to model hairstyles for 2015. The husband ended up looking like (to me) a Mafia boss with his two sons, and I gained a gorgeous 10 year old daughter (the shoot was for Mother's Day) in the shape of child model Harley Chapman.

If you're thinking that Harley looks familiar, it's because she's actually known as a "mini Cara" and has appeared in lots of campaigns, including a series for Withings where she recreated well known Cara Delevingne images including one with a Kate Moss lookalike (see final two pictures, below). She also has a (very popular) Instagram account - definitely a rising star; she was also the sweetest, most un-brattish little girl ever, considering what she's doing)...!

Hope you enjoy the photos - let me know what you think in the comments!

  6. But you ARE an internet sensation you silly! :D The photoshoot is amazing, the mini Cara kind of creeps me out a bit, the resemblance is striking!

    1. Haha yeah I forgot, Keit - I am!!!! No really (really, I am joking), the resemblance Harley has to Cara is incredible, it was the first thing I thought when I saw her!

  7. I know that as a full-time blogger your schedule is ALWAYS packed - and you're frequently "burning the midnight oil" - but doing a campaign like this (with the hubby, no less!) must be such a fun change of pace, dearest Catherine!! Where will the finished photos and video eventually be featured?? Are you going to be in a (gulp!) television commercial?! Oh my gosh...maybe you'll be a real live "movie star" now!! ;D

  11. Amazing photos. You all look fantastic. I do photoshoots like this for work being on the advertiser's side, but not about such glamourous subjects. Everytime I see these hair "before" videos I hear my mother when she said: "never forget, they are just photos. When it is made the guy behind all that lucious hair takes his hand away and it all falls down" haha. She is partly right. Nevertheless your hair is beautiful and the photos are too. Husband may have looked like maffia, but I think he is very handsome. You do deserve each other.
    Little Harley looks indeed like a younger version of Cara, especially in that second but last picture.
