The one thing we’ve got

As I’m a creature of habit, I probably don’t have to introduce you to Yaelle. She’s one of the few girls I like to call ‘muses’. Our shoots together are mostly rather impromptu since she lives abroad and we just make a habit out of meeting whenever she’s in the country. We decided to keep our latest shoot very simple and relaxed, just shooting inside the apartment and seeing what inspiration brought us.

Times like these and times like those

The first shoot of the year was arranged on the spur of the moment. It was January, I had been on a shoot break for over a month, and they were predicting snow for the weekend. I for one, had never done a proper shoot in the snow, and I had this new old camera that happened to scream for attention, so out of the blue I texted Charlotte and Kathleen if they were up for a snow shoot, and they were! It was our tenth time shooting together and we froze our asses off (especially Charlotte who was such a trooper), but it was so much fun. Since we’ve worked together so many times already, there’s this easiness and relaxedness which just adds to the whole experience. Hopefully there will be plenty more shoots with this team to follow!
