Xanthe B & Me in Notting Hill



A few weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of being paired up with one of my insta-Heroes (come on, we all have them), Xanthe B on a photoshoot in Notting Hill for Boden. With the task of capturing 4 outfits in stills and video, Xanthe called up on her friend Sophie at interiors shop and cafe Pedlars and it was there that we made ourselves a base.

With every outfit came the fun task of location hunting. From the street with Hugh Grants house from Love Actually (we didn’t even realise we were shooting outside the house next door) to secret colourfully painted walls, the cold and wind wouldn’t stop us finding those perfect spots!

Make Your Own Films

Shooting with Xanthe was a dream, I’ve never seen someone move so fast with a tripod, nor have I ever been called ‘cute’ so many times (oh she’s flatters me). Then when it came to seeing the end shots (and videos over on the Boden Instagram), I did a little dance of joy, they came out amazing! To be fair, this is what she does best. Throughout her degree, jobs in set making, move to Thailand, birth of two children and adventures around London, she’s always shot beautiful photos and videos whether for herself, weddings, families or brands.

Xanthe’s all about sharing so now you can learn how to create your own cute stop-motions or slow-mo snippets with her quick and easy camera courses. If you’re a #ColorColourLover like us then you’ll definitely want to give her a follow on every channel and listen to all her advice. I spy a Pinterest board of her dream colourful places to visit around the world. See you there!
