In January Nanó was visiting Finland and we were like neighbours for a week. We spent a tuesday afternoon taking portraits of each other. These photos were taken behind my appartement near the Aura River in Turku. After we went out in the cold we drank some tea and ate saffron buns while talking about the future and how to find creativity. She also took some analogue photos of me in my bedroom. I look forward to see them. She’s studying photography in Antwerpen, Belgium.
As I mentioned on the earlier post I did some styling on my boyfriend Mathias during the holidays. I paired the bow tie with a tartan pattern shirt and a grey blazer. The red elements gives the look a bit Christmas holiday feeling over it and together with his round glasses he looks like a professor. The bow tie is actually a present I gave him a couple of years ago for Christmas. I also bought the shirt for him because I really like the color combination of the pattern. The blazer is borrowed from his dad so it’s quiet a bit oversized.
Model: Sara Lehtomaa
The week before Christmas holiday started I met Sara and shot some outfit photos near the university campus. Turku has been really rainy during December but that day we managed to catch a little sunlight.
Something I should do more is planning photo shoots in advance. In the beginning of November Nina modeled for me near Aura River. Before this shoot I created a mood board for inspiration. I had an idea of a minimalist look with focus on make-up. I think the photos turned out quiet as I imagined them to be.
