Jessica – Beautiful little things

Precious is the flower that stays hidden in a corner, unseen, but yet beautiful, when the sun makes it shine at the end of the day. Precious is the flower that has no name, the one shown and sold on the street, the one offered as a present, the one kept inside a book, dried, as a memory. Precious is your heart which remembers this all.

Some lovely photos from a test shoot with the gorgeous Jessica Fuhrmann, from Linden Staub. Make up: Ceci Wu.

Family portrait session – A sweet summer gift

What I love the most of family portrait sessions is that they are always so spontaneous and full of joy that I never feel the need to ask for a smile or wait for an happy face. Everything I should look for is already there, waiting for my eyes and my camera to capture it. Today I have the pleasure to share with you a few photos from a lovely session shot last week, in Oxford. The weather was far from being nice and warm, but in the end love covered the dark clouds!

Jump, smile, and have fun

I usually like to think carefully about my photo-shoots before contacting the models and starting to work on them, but the day I decided to take the photos you’ll see below, I said to myself: just have fun and find a way to communicate happiness. The original project wanted a sunny day, but lately, in England, sunny days are so rare that I am wondering: will I take all the photos I want in the next months, should I change my plans for a while, focusing on a different kind of photography? Maybe somehow, like last winter, I will find a way, despite the weather, to exercise my creativity without sacrificing my ideas.

A special thanks to the lovely Silvia Pace, who faced with the cold wind with a big smile!
