This girl does no longer need an introduction: she is my friend, she is my muse, she is awesome, she is simply Shannety.
Tate Modern is one of our regular stops when my friends and I visit London. Their new wing—with an observation deck in the 10th floor—recently opened. I love the elevator hall on the ground floor. I can see myself doing a photo shoot there: great location for a beautiful model in shiny black latex…
I met Sara at a casting call for the Belgium Plus Size Fashion Weekend. After her casting interview, we started talking and it turns out she lives pretty much around the corner from me. So plans to do a little photo shoot were quickly forged. Nothing fancy, just a couple of hours in the studio but it turned out to be a lot of fun. So much so that I look forward to the next collaboration with Sara.
I’m always delighted when I have Evelien in my studio. She is a fantastic model: punctual, talented, pretty and funny. A real pro. And she is my favorite redhead too. When she came to the studio last month, I had 2 outfits laid out for her. We started of with the glorious Susanna Corseted Dress from House of Harlot.
And for our 2nd session, we used one of my favorite combo’s: the Larissa Latex Harness Dress in reversed latex from Pandora Deluxe, a bolero jacket from Meat, belt from Simon O. and the fabulous ballet heels from Kassiopeya.
It’s a regular thing: my photo shoots with Shannety. Even though we can both be very busy at times and all sorts of other activities get in the way, eventually we will end up in the studio together for–what is always–a fun photo shoot.
And sometimes we have serendipitous moments that turn out awesome portraits. Or was it a lucky shot maybe?
I have always had a soft spot for curvy girls. And when they are as beautiful as Sharon, I will gladly work with them in the studio any time. Sharon and I shot these photos over the summer. Who ever said curvy girls can’t be pretty, maybe should be reconsidering their opinion when they see these pictures.
I will never pass up an opportunity to visit Legoland. I loved Lego as a kid, and I am still a big fan. Obviously, Legoland Danmark had to be on our itinerary on our trip to Copenhagen. I can spend hours, possibly day at miniland gaping at those awesome models just made of Lego bricks. I actually don’t care about the rides. Give me my camera and I will be happy as a kid in a candy store.
The Star Wars models where so cool. I was happy that I had a GoPro and a selfie stick with me. It allowed me to get really close to some of the models and take pictures from angles I would not be able to reach with my dSLR. And I eventually end up doing a photo shoot with the local talents of course. Even when they are made of Lego bricks.
It is always cool to have Sarah in the studio. She come prepared: she brings more outfits and accessories then we can shoot in a day. And as it turns out, sometimes all we need is a sweater, high heels, a white wall and some photo gear to get things done… Oh, and we need Sarah’s natural beauty of course! But that’s a given.
