Let’s delve inside my ‘bonkers brain’ and see what I have conjured up for this month’s Dream Factory shoot!

Inspiration can and does strike at any time, and this month was no exception!

Whilst rummaging through my handbag collection, I came across my beautiful hand-carved handbags from my favourite designer, Timmy Woods.

What I love about her bags are their intricate designs and how unique they are. It completely blows my mind that they have been carved out of wood. They are, as Timmy herself says, “wearable art”.

This got me to thinking (“uh oh”, I hear #TeamHeaven welp!)...How would I look if I were carved out of wood?

I was further intrigued by the wooden ‘tree man carvings’ I have hanging up in my home. Pretty quickly, the idea was firmly planted and took root in my mind, and the mood board started to come to life.

Here in the UK, we are firmly under the spell of autumn - so this shoot’s colour scheme couldn’t have been more perfect or in harmony.

Beth would create her latest masterpiece with a colour palette of reds, ambers, golds, bronze and greens to echo the multifaceted autumnal leaves in all their glory, with a beautiful wood-bark effect.

Hilary would be armed and dangerous with a large branch of silk autumn leaves, fir cones, berries, then locking and loading this creation into place with a lethal dose of hairspray!

By the time they had finished working and weaving their magic, I was transformed into an otherworldly autumnal wood nymph - intricate and unique - exactly like the Timmy Woods handbag!

Into the studio and cue Adrian to work his magic taking the photos, while autumn leaves were dropped, floating around me to complete the overall tree-lady effect.

Shoot complete, it was over to Adrian’s to create the most captivating visual photographs to finish off our Forever Autumn story...
