The Flower Book | Part One | Dana Cole | Oslo

This is the beginning to a year long project and I am very excited for it.
I have wanted to do my own ‘coffee table’ book for a few years now. So I decided to make it finally happen late last year. My book would be about my current love for flowers. Everything about them make me happy and smile. So I wanted to dedicate an entire book to them. This book will be 160 pages of Models with flowers, and beautifully done floral arrangements by themselves.

I had my first shoot for the book 3 weeks ago.
For this shoot I wanted a headpiece surrounded in flowers around the models face, and a dress encased in flowers at the top of it! I got busy making what I wanted to achieve and I was very happy with the results.
Since I plan to reuse many of the flowers I bought, and I bought TONSSSSS lol, I used a double sides tape to make the flower top. So that I could easily remove them the next day.
Here is a little timelapse:

Some of you may have watched a bit of me live shooting this on Instagram and Facebook :)
but… for some of you, this is the first time you are seeing this shoot.
I had a fabulous videographer by the name of Behzad Ranjbar of Unikfoto, shooting some BTS footage for me that day..
Here is his fabulous video !

Sooooo, without any further delays.. and weeks of deciding which images I wanted to go into the book. I have chosen them andddddddddddddddddddddddddd, here they are.

Unicorn Rainbow | Beauty Photographer Dana Cole Pix

Hey Hey !
So those of you who know me from Facebook, know I have begin my book project.

This book is called ‘Unicorn Rainbow’
Unicorn Rainbow will feature everything that goes on in my mind. Un-censored and full of color. I want you all to see the world as I see it !
The book will have many different color collections of about 10-15 images in each collection.. Some pretty tame and some will be over the top !!

I recently just finished up the first shoot and editing for the first look and color collection of the book.
I decided to start with Purple as the first collection. (I am loving purple lately, so why not start with it, haha.

I worked with lovely Model: Eleonor Frostegård from Sweden on this shoot.
My MUA/Hair stylist was the always fabulous Ragnhild Petersen.

Here are some BTS Images of the fun we had the day.


Here are my final selections from the shoot.
I will use 2-3 of these for the book. Not sure which specific ones yet, but that can be a surprise within the book when it’s done 😀

Hiya all,

Yeah yeah I know.
I skipped a week. teehee 🙂
So, this is not a new shoot but it is a new shoot to my blog. This was a beauty editorial I shot last year called “From Summer, With Love”.
Which was published in LUCY’S Magazine June 2016 issue.
I love the way this shoot turned out.
I am also including a bit of the BTS we got to shoot the day of as well.
Hope you enjoy it.
