Mel from MiaMia Photography is a dear friend of mine. And someone who really ‘gets’ me. So when I suggested that I wanted to do a unique product shoot, she said she had the perfect models! Little did I know that the two brunettes that she had in mind were actually baby guinea pigs!

Monty and Pipsqueak are just the most divine little creatures. I was so taken with them, and so surprised how calm and at ease they were.

They’ve been given a lot of love since they were born, so were very content to be in our company. They’d just sit and snack away in between ‘takes’. But they were happiest when posing together.

I can honestly say that Mel and I giggled and aahhed the whole time. Every shot was cuter than the last!

So I ended up with some very original images for my Valentine’s Day hair accessories!

And naturally, we took every care to ensure the safety of Monty and Pipsqueak throughout the brief shoot.

And stay tuned for tutorials on how to make a couple of these clips! They’re so simple to create. All you need is some alligator clips, some grosgrain ribbon, a few embellishments and some fabric yo yo’s. Don’t forget the hot glue gun!  I can’t wait to share them with you. 

Happy creating, Lauren.
