Let me photograph you in this light

When we realized we hadn’t done a shoot together for over a year, Charlotte, Kathleen and I decided it was high time to get together ‘just like in the old days’. And what better backdrop than the gorgeous blossoming cherry trees in my street?

Le coeur ouvert à l’inconnu


You may have noticed this, but I don’t shoot a lot of men. I don’t really know why. I used to think men were a lot easier to photograph than women, and then suddenly at one point that all turned around. I think it was around the time that I started shooting a lot more models (instead of people I knew), and they were mostly women. Aside from that, there’s also this crazy romantic in me who desires to throw flowers on people and such, which may also be why men don’t come up so much in my work. I thoroughly enjoyed my shoot with Jeffrey though, early September. We did a lot of different things but I really like this miniseries in my home studio.
