Pink Overdose! | Grace Lee London | Photography

Ellie and I connected through Instagram and we decided to meet up for an outdoor shoot, however the forecast predicted heavy rain for that day so we arranged for a back up indoor location. Ellie suggested that we head over to Frank's Cafe in Peckham as they have pink corridors all the way up to the rooftop cafe/bar. As a Lover of pink, it was hard to resist this intriguing candy floss pink heaven goodness!

Let's talk about Frank's Cafe. It is a trendy rooftop cafe located on top of a multi-story car park, with views of Southbank, to City, and even stretches over to Canary Wharf so you can enjoy the views of all the major sky-scrapers of London while sipping on some coffee or something a lot stronger. They do have a lot of Art amongst the cafe, so they have quite a few rules when it came to photography. We were stopped several times by members of staff as we were not allowed to capture the art in our photographs (Although, I think it is completely fine if you are using your phone.)

This pink lobby/stairwell/corridor is also a piece of art titled 'Hi Boo, I Love You' by Simon Whybray. It's listed as London most pink place over at TimeOut, so if you love pink, you must go the Peckham! We were stopped from taking photos as I think we just looked too professional but the kind lady was okay with it once we explained it was for the gram.

My favourite thing about social media is that it has lead me to meet so many cool people and made me get out of the house to explore places that I've never even heard of! One of these cool people is my model for the day, Ellie. Ellie is a fantastic model and so much more, not only did she chose this unique location, she brought several outfits and props (mega impressed!) to match each location. She's also an actress, DJ, writer, singer, puppeteer, etc.. And has stories to keep you entertained for the whole day! I found Ellie very inspiring as she is living the dream in Barbie's dream house (sorta) and doing what she loves all day every day! It was my pleasure meeting and shooting you.
