Valentines Day is coming up. I must admit I don’t make a big fuss over it. Actually, I’m very kind to my husband. I go out, buy myself some chocolate, a new color nail polish or something nice from L’Occitane. Then come home and tell him “darling thank you for my valentine’s present.” Easy and we’re happy all around. But having my portrait done for a V-day gift? That I would like.
And, I do love the color red, and also playing dress up. Not the, “I have to go shopping for something to wear” kind of dress up. But the, “oh let’s make something dreamy or gorgeous or playful, but definitely something new!” kind of dress up.
So - with Valentines Day coming, and me a portrait photographer, I had to take some portraits after buying a load of red, black and cream tulle. That, a little creativity, a lot of fabric draping and collaboration with a fellow photographer Kamila Harris, and a great make up artist, Lola Schmidt —- and VOILA. GLAMOUR.
Here are a few of the resulting images. You are invited to book a session for this coming Valentines Day (hurry up though) or for another time when you too want to feel special. email@example.com
