On one of the last remaining summer days in early September, we had a photoshoot of the "Civil Collection" in my local neighbourhood of Kreuzberg. Berlin.
I was very lucky to have such a talented, all female team. The resulting images are filled with a strong feminine sensuality.
Maja is highly skilled, enthusiastic photographer with impeccable taste.
Aline is trained both as a hair stylist and make-up artist, whose understanding of the cool, natural beauty that I hoped to be captured was enhanced by the models huge, Bambi eyes and porcelain skin.
And our model is the multi lingual and exotic Zhanna from Kazakistan who has just moved to Berlin after living in Italy for years. She is highly experienced and was totally effortless in front of the camera.
Seeing the dresses come to life on a model with beautiful hair and make up, then the mix of creative energy and professional skills all coming together to create beautiful images usually results in an emotionally charged day of shooting for me. I'm very happy with the result and excited to share the images with you!
