Conservation and education charity, the Scottish Seabird Centre, teamed up with East Lothian business, Lori’s Creations, to create dolphin-tastic and crab-alicious looks for their Easter photoshoot.
Lori’s Creations is owned and run by Longniddry resident, Lorraine Walker. The Seabird Centre put out an appeal on social media to find a high-quality facepainter and Lori was recommended.
Lori said: “I was really excited to receive the brief from the Scottish Seabird Centre, to transform some young Seabird supporters into dolphins and crabs to promote their Easter activities. Following lots of research and practice at home, I devised my own designs and I’m really pleased with the results.”
Laura Adamson, Marketing Manager for the Scottish Seabird Centre, adds: “We had a vision of how we wanted the kids to look for the shoot and Lori nailed it. The kids all loved how they looked, which gave them even more confidence while getting their photos taken.
“So, a massive thank you to Lori and also the kids who took part: Lewis and Isobel Muckett from Tranent, Caleb Watson from Prestonpans and Anna Blair from North Berwick.”
The family-friendly events at the Seabird Centre this Easter include What’s for Snack?, an interactive puppet show with new Seabird team member Craig the Crab, ideal for age 2+, and Ocean-a-rific with Dr Dolph Lingerin-aboot, ideal for age 6+.
