The purity of youth, the candid beauty of flowers, and the perfection of the painted freckles make this beauty shoot one of my favourite work so far! Thanks a lot to my team, to the talented make up artist Micaela Congia, to the great hair stylist Giulia Piras and to the sweet model Bella Ford, from M+P Models, for helping me taking these honest, natural and romantic images!
“Turn, turn, my wheel! All things must change
To something new, to something strange;
Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
To-morrow be to-day.” Kéramos, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Thanks to the lovely model Yebeen, from Elite, and to Floor, who is with Yebeen in the last picture of this selection.
Where should I start from? The glorious University years, the way we grew up, and changed – or maybe not – and became the women we are? Our friendship? I am speaking to you, Antonella, while my eyes are looking back to the room and the house we shared, to the city that we explored together, to the delicatessen of our native regions we enjoyed in front of a tower of books, to the laughs and the tears that filled our Roman memories. We have been friends for such a long time that the day you got married, last August, I was really happy and emotioned! As I was the day we took these photos. Seeing you and Andrea smiling, being excited and thrilled, through the lens of my camera, gave joy to my heart. Added to that, the pleasure to visit the town where you were born and you always spoke about. You are such a beautiful couple, guys, romantic, ironic, spontaneous, and I want to thank you once again for all. Yours was really an amazing wedding, and all the days we spent together made me feel as I was ninetheen again. Keep smiling as in these photographs, and be young, and able to see the happy face of life forever.
It is time to go back to our childhood memories with the moving and romantic story of “Le Petit Prince”! But instead of looking for the old book we probably left in the dusty grandma attic, this time we can follow the Prince’s adventures on the stage!
I took the photos you can see below from The New French Play in Oxford: Le Petit Prince, performed in May 2016 at LMH Simpkins Lee Theatre and directed by the talented Elsa Perault and Rebecca Wood. In the cast: Alexander Bridges, Caitlin Jones, Danielle Green, Georgia Crump, Heather Barr, Krishmeela Rittoo, Lydie Sheehan, Martina Kavanová, Niccolo Pescetelli, Serena Yagoub, Serin Gioan, Zoë Sandford.
