Behind the scenes of Virgin Suicides with Anna McGrane

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to join the wonderful Anna McGrane on her latest shoot, inspired by The Virgin Suicides. The young and talented photographer kindly invited me to help with the creative process.  I captured some behind the scenes snaps and also got a few minutes to chat with Anna about her inspiration and future plans in photography.

Anna hard at work (this is the kind of level she will go to in order to get the shot -  points for persistence!).

Pretty shoes

The photos are so beautiful and these are a few of my favourites. 

Make sure you follow Anna on instagram (@a_mcgrane) to keep up with her work. Thanks again Anna!

p.s. You may have noticed Lexi Likes has had a makover! As much as I loved my old theme, there were lots of issues with images being cut off and mobile device viewing so it was time for a change. I tried to keep a touch of my old theme in the header but I like this a lot better. My favourite feature being the 'pin it' button that pops up when you hover over an image, so perfect for all you pinterest lovers! Do you like it? Let me know in a comment!
