These pics are from the latest photoshoot with Sami taken about a week ago.

Straitjackets are, by the way, unbelievably heavy. O.o

Hugo, my friend

Once upon a time there was a career woman, a business lady. She always dressed smart and looked classy and efficient. She was thought by some to look beautiful, though she did not smile very often. Some were in fact a little afraid of her. She worked in a big busy company full of men, but she had worked her way through from being a coffee maker to an executive with a good position. She was sharp and witty. She was not a floral dresses and giggle -type of woman, no. She was strictly business. No one at her work knew much about her private life. They gossiped though, as they always do. The men in the company had pictures of their wives and children on their desks. When they visited her office there was only one picture on her heavy mahogany desk, a picture the point of which they could not quite grasp: a picture of a pink plastic flamingo. Some said it was merely a question of decoration or design, some however, "just didn't get it", it did not seem to fit her style.

She lived in a big white house. A mansion really. She loved Scandinavian clean white style in decoration. She also loved modern art and had collected some statues and painting to add that finishing touch to her home. After rthe hectic day at the company, sometimes when she removed her heels, the marble floor felt a little cold under her feet.Sometimes the house also felt a little too big and empty and cold. In fact, sometimes she herself felt an odd cold feeling inside, and when she really really thought about this feeling she realised what it was. She sometimes felt, even though she had everything a woman can hope for, a bit lonely.

On moments like this, she sat down, held her pink flamingo, Hugo, on her arms and talked to her about her worries (yes, even hard boiled business women worry sometimes).

Just thought to add some more pics here from the shoot with Nadi.. the one below is my new favourite. ^^

Aaaaand, totally unrelated to these pics (well, not enetirely), I must say I absolutely love my hair. :D Cutting my dreads off was probably the best thing I've done in ages. I would love to give big thank you hugs to those who supported me on this!<3 And do not-sure-what to those who opposed.. But then again, maybe they see it now too how awesome decision this was. Oh and a ginormous extraspecial thankyou to Patsku at Naps of course!^^

An afternoon..

Last week Nadi came to Turku to shoot with me (aaand possibly some other models as well, but this is all about memememememeee! :D So of course he came all the way here just for me;).) one of his Afternoon with.. -series. We had so much fun (again) doing the shoot and ended up trying many different things. It's easy when you have the wardrobe right there and can just improvise as you go! On my last post I was talking about the crazy creative.. well yeah, there was some of that for sure. ;) Oh oh oh, and to make the afternoon even more perfect, Nadi cooked me lunch. :D We became hungry after hours of shooting and since I'm not much of a cook, he took the lead. I just can't help but loove people who cook for me (oooor take me out to dinner, but that's a different story)! :D Hahaa!

Anyway, here are some photos from the shoot. More to come.

Went all Flashdance on the below one. :D

Oh and yeah, I need your opinion once again! How do you like the captions with the photographer's name under the pictures? I only recently thought it might be a good idea, since I may talk about many things on the actual text, and I definately want to give credit to those it belongs. I mean, another option would be to just write the name before or after the pictures more clearly. What do you think my darlings??

Tonight's photoshoot

This week I've done a lot of model-stuff. :) A shoot with Nadi Hammouda, been a t-shirt canvas for a performance painter Neal Barbosa on Rebound's gig, a music video with Steve Gatlin for Big Daddy & Rockin Combo and this shoot tonight with Sami. More to come from this session and looking forward to the results from others as well.

Photoshoots, where are you?!

I wanna do more shoots! Now! With my new hair n all, I feel like I want to do my portfolio all over again from a scratch. But where are all the photographers now when I need 'em?!

(Okay, okay, I'm pretty busy here myself as well, this time of year I guess everyone is?!)

 I would looove to have a new beauty shot.. Here's one hanging on my wall (okay, I really don't have my own pic on the wall, but I just turned the page of the calendar for the purpose of getting a pic here.. and then it immediately fell down from my wall. O.o "Stop being so vain, take off this stupid pic of yourself" my wall was saying.).. I think this is one of the beauty shots I love the most. One of the best taken of me. Although, now it feels this girl here is someone totally different from me. Someone pretty lying on the bed.. wow, amazing. Now can I be in it next?!:D

A calendar by Sami Saarenpää. The November girl.

Here's a teaser pic on my new look. I call this teaser because it doesn't relly show the cut that well. More to come. ;)

The picture is by Nadi Hammouda, the hair by Patrick Koskinen at Naps in Porvoo.

Latex, baby!

I had a chance to finally shoot with Qumma. We just happened to be in the same place at the same time and sort of quickly just put the thing together. :D It was pretty dark in the corridor, so I guess that's the reason these pics aren't as focused as they perhaps should.

The dress is by Heavenly Circus from the last summer latex fashion show. :)

White Trash Blues

Now it's finished. Now it's on youtube.

Here's yours truly..

Rebound - White Trash Blues

I must say, even though I'm probably a bit opinionated, I really do love this song. :D It's totally catchy!


20 September 2010

I got an Award! ^^

This is what I got from the cutest grrl ever:

And this here is her blog. Crimi  writes in Finnish though, so if someone happens not to understand the language.. well.. luckily there are lots of pics there. :)

Okay, this award also involves telling 7 random facts/secrets about oneself. And giving it forward to 7 people. The magic number seven.. a theme here. I'm not sure if I even know that many bloggers, but I'll do my best. :)

Okay, the random seven about my modelling stuff -since this a themed blog, I thought I might just as well stick to it (and I did, almost!). :)

1. Before a photoshoot I used to refrain from eating anything fatty, so that my skin would saty in good condition. Well, I've totally stopped doing this. O.O

2. I think I secretly wanted to be a model on the runway as a teenager even though I told everybody how much I'd hate that and how commercial the whole industry was and how I'd never want to be part of that.

3. As a teenager I was in Brighton on a language course and a woman stopped me on the street asking me for my height, weight, age etc. She was from London-based modelling agency and was curious wether I lived in England.. I of course, at the age of 18 and feeling like I looked like crap especially that day, laughed about the incident (also, see number 2). But I believe, on some level, this very event planted the idea about me being a model inside me and made me work towards it unconciously. (I mean, my that time favourite model Kate Moss was short for a model and found at an airport -looking like crap!)

4. Sometimes, I feel like crap because of modelling and the competition and pressure it sets. Even though I probably know nothing of those since I don't reeeeallly work as a model. But still, sometimes this just gets to me.  I would reeaally wanna look like the ladies on the magazines and reeeeaally high fashion and editorial, but I guess I just have to face it: I'm more of the alternative kind/ I suit best for beauty, nude, girl next door etc. :(

5. I've done BA on English Philology at the University. Now, however, I study European Ethnology at the Uni and I'm just starting my MA. (My BA on Ethnology got the best grade possible and was awarded with a prize. So there you have it with stupid models! Ha!)

6. I do love attention. I'm a bit of an attention whore really. :) I'm scared of being on stage but I'd love to do runway shows and such and be a lecturer at the university. :D

7. I started this blog, not because of what I said in the 6, but because.. naaaaaah, who am I kidding! ;D I wanted to show more pitures to more people and make myself known to the entire WOOOOORRRLD! And then I'm taking over the entire universe. :)

(8. I use a lot of sarcasm.)

And the award goes tooooooo

All my lovely Follower -ladies^^ that is:

Paljasjaloin -lovely to find you here too!^^
Diva Desido - WOW. Just... wow!
Northern Vision - this girl's got some attitude. In a good way! :D

I'd also love to send this back to Crimi, but I think that's not aproppriate, so I won't. O.o I also would love to send this to my other follower-ladies, since they're awesomely (?) beautiful too, but since you guys don't blog... wellll, you better know you've reseived this award in my book anyway!

More Simonetta

When shooting Simonetta, we did other things than just this one picture. Here are some of them. For once and perhaps the first time I feel like I actualy look like a real model. :) I've had a bit of a crisis with myself lately, hearing Tya Banks on ANTM saying to me on judging "This beeeeeautiful girl I see in front of me. Is she just a pretty girl, or is there that high fashion edge to her" or "When she's standing in front of me, I see a beeeeautiful girl, but the judges are still wondering does that translate into the pictures, is she photogenig enough to make it in the fashion industry" and so on. Hm. Perhaps I've watched too much America's Next Top Model.

Anyway, here are some fames from the Simonetta shoot with Emilia.

And now that I'm putting them here, a little vote, which one do you think is the best? Which should go to my portfolio?

And is it just me, or do I resemble just a tiny bit Natalie Portman in the last one? :D

Secret Meeting X

We've planned this shoot for long. It took really short time to shoot it when we finally managed to get together and do it. This is from the Secret Meeting series that sami has done. This though is perhaps the brightest and even one of the happiest stories among those. Not sure, however, cos I haven't seen all of them. And you can always "read" this any ways you like.. ;)

By the way: Do the locations look familiar? Some of you might recognize the places.. ;)

One more time in the woods this summer

And more hideous bugs that ate my feet and so on. But leaving that aside, I had a great shoot in Porvoo with Nadi Hammouda. A very nice guy with whom shooting was FUN. :) I didn't have to be scared of  making too many jokes and making the photographer annoyed! x) Hahaa! Okay, his idea of a photoshoot seems to be to create something that hasn't been done before with the model. Which is great. We tried for instance smiling/laughing -which I've never done before- and movement in the shots. The movement-part was a success:), smiling not so much (cos I think my cheecks look like tits when I smile xD!).. ;)

 Here a little darker one. This is something I don't recall having in my port either: dark, heavy shadows.

And then a little brighter pic.. at least when it comes to colours. What do you say about my expression? Annoyed much? :D

1 August 2010


Okay, o my previous post I promised you Marie Antoinette, but instead (since I don't have those pics just yet) I'll give you someone from way back earlier: Simonetta. However, vastly modernised. I love the way Emilia was able to do my hair! This is just awesome. So, now I know who to turn to in case I have a big party coming up;).

So the inspiration for this photo was Simonetta Vespucci, who was a muse for many artists of the 15th century. She is, for instance, portrayed on Botticelli's painting The Birth of Venus.

Rock n Roll Bitch

Just to wake you up before something reeeaally pink and sweet as Marie Antoinette's cupcake 'll show up.. A little bit of rockin for you!

These pics are from last winter and I just stopped and stared at them while going through my pics.. I really miss my boots (it's too hot for them at the moment) and those jeans are just tearing apart. They're soooo old. :( *snif* But hey, the bottom line is: I kinda like this outfit. ..and was just wondering wether I could go to a club with this on.. hmmmmm.

Oh, and by the way, the title of this post is also a name of a drink on this club I go to -far too often. :D

27 June 2010

White Trash Blues coming up..

Here's little something from what's coming up! :D I can tell you this was a hell of a fun afternoon with some awesome people and I'm SO looking forward to seeing the video! The music video was for Rebound's latest single White Trash Blues directed by Steve Gatlin. Unfortunately we had no time (or energy) to do a photoshoot with him. But next time we're in the same country.. we're gonna do it for sure! It was great to work with Steve and Rebound and Artturi and the girls -who brought such an energy to the shoot!

However, I need a little help here since I have a difficult choice to make: which name am I going to use.. in the poster now it says Jodie, but the name will also appear in the credits at the end of the video. The first instinct was to go with my real name, which I also used in the Duke -shortfilm.. but then again.. Jodie is my modelling name..could make it into Jodie P, but then again if someone wants to find me for instance in Facebook they'll be more likely to do so by using my real name.. O.O Choices, choices.. never been too good at them. Help, anyone?

A little note now afterwards: this poster is where it ended up with my difficult choice. :D

Jodie in Wonderland

The fairy tale continues.. :) Many of you ahve said that in the previous pics I look like a fairy or pixie, well, whatd'ya think of these? ;)

Here's a sneak peek of what we did with Emilia Kallinen the other day -or evening more so. We did this shoot at Ruissalo, an island almost attached to the mainland here in Turku. The nature is really beautiful there. And I felt like a princess with the outfit and my hair done 'n all. ^^

Styling, hair, outfit and everything is by Emilia. :)

More of these to come.. for example one with me facing my fear: face to face with a bunny rabbit. O.O

Oh, and the mosquitos in Ruissalo were far worse than the ones on the rocks. Goaaarrrh, but hey, for the art;).

Things are happenin'

I've been quiet for too long a time now. Yesterday I hade a photoshoot though. Now I'm waiting for the pics to show up. :) Something else is going on too, I have at least one other shoot coming up plus a music video shoot next Friday and a latex fashion show next month. :) So yei, things are happening^^!

Here's a little something from a couple of summers back. Shot with Markus.

It was terribly cold in the lake. O.o But hey, I'm always cold anyways. :D I don't know how I keep on finding myself in circumstances where it is cold and uncomfortable. Oh well, for the sake of art! In the end of the day, I'm always glad I did these kind of shoots anyway. ^^

Spring and fairy tales

These photos are from April 2008. I got to be a fairy^^. Or maybe an elf.. hmmm. Photos are by Markus Lehto.

I've always loved fairytales and I still do. I still have to read Ronja ryövärintytär by Astrid Lindgren (Ronia the Robber's Daughter) every now and then because it's just so amazing book (and has a little stubborn girl as the hero! Talk about identification..). I've also bought some picture books now that I'm all grown up. But fairy tales are so wonderfully imaginative and perfect escapism and they sometimes have the most amazing picures that why should one stop loving them when they become older. No they shouldn't!

And as I'm writing this, a dark heavy cloud is approaching from the East and hiding the pale blue of the evening sky. From my window I can already see it's raining far back there and waiting for the first rain drops to hit my window sill..

(And that's true! How dramatic is that!^^ Just waiting for the beeeeautiful summer thunder storms!)

23 April 2010


Mine are small but I love them, okay!?

I just recently read this blog where the writer (a 20 y.o. Finnish girl) said out loud that she's saving for silicone breasts and that she thinks everyone should do whatever they can to improve their looks by surgigal means. She also stated that her concept of beauty is exceptionally good and therefore she should be the judge in all kinds of beuty contests. Her idea of beuty or a beautiful woman is thus someone with plastic all over and fake this and that (cos few of us has it all by birth).
That's kinda sad, really.

Also, I just a moment ago ran into the portfolio of a model who does mainly nudes and has really small tits. And I wanted to praise her for what she's doing! She didn't even try to make her boobs look bigger, but more so she had a lot of stretches that made her titties disappear alltogether! That, my friends, I'd call brave!

One photographer once told me I look "manly" (that's the exact word he used) if I don't be careful with my breast during the shoot. At the time I said nothing, I was more like.. whattahell he just said? But later, now that I think of it, that fuckin idiot! Who says that to a model!? And besides, the pose wasn't anything where the boob would disappear from stretching or the like. I was sitting on a girly fashion on the floor with a skirt on.. my hair was covering my bare breasts. Oh well. I don't need to shoot with thoughtless people like that again. And truth be told, I never said anything to him about this discomfort.. and that kinda bugs me.

Also on this one web site out of the pics I chose to be sent in, only one was published -and that one was definately not the one with an aforementioned stretching pose where my tit had reduced to a nip. I mean, out of maybe a 5-10 pics they chose one to show on the site and that one they chose was, in my opinion, far worse than the one with the disappeared tit. And the only cause for that, that I can think of, is the lack of tit. Hmm.. well, this is just speculation. Might not've been that reason really.. But just a thought.
Anyway. I didn't mean to sound like a bitter chick with itty bitty titties. I meant to sound like someone who embraces her small tits, wouldn't change them for a million and seriously wishes and hopes that other girls and women with not so humongous set of jugs would appreciate their set of pretty little ones^^. And mind you, I don't mean to say the big titted ladies should feel less appreciative toward their own boobies! And I don't mean to say I loathe silicones or the people who want/have them. I just don't like the idea that everyone should look like the copy of each other! A copy of some perfect fantasy woman who, in the end, does not even excist.

If a photographer wants to shoot with me, they should know I don't have a D-cup - and that's apparent if they'd take a minute to check my portfolio (eg. on MM I have semi nudes as well where you can see the state of affairs). If a photographer needs to worry about me looking manly if my tits won't be right there on the pic.. I can just hope they wouldn't work with me in the first place.

Ooookay. Now all photographers are on the alert when shooting toppless with me.. x) Well, no need. Of course a photographer can tell me to move here or there to get my tits on the pic better or something like that. Just.. just that, well, you should know, I have smaller tits than some, but for me it's not a hindrance or a lack and it shouldn't be to you either.

There, I said it. You can hate me now;).

And here's an angry face and a bit of a tit.
(By Arto Soini, last winter.)

Babble, babble

A while ago I did a test shoot with Michael Schultes, a German photographer who was visiting Finland due to work related matters (gosh, aren't I sounding formal!). This is one of the pics I've got since. He's really busy at the moment, so I'll probably get some more pics later. :)

As I think I've mentioned, I got some shoots planned, but I've been busy with my studies and work and managing them both. This is the time of year when everything piles up at the university studying world.. Although, I started feeling like I'm stressed for nothing, since people around me seem to have tons more studying stuff than I do. Oh well. My indian (or should I say native American?) name is probabaly Stresses-a-lot or something. However, I managed to finally pull together my BA!!! ^^ And as for my other studies, I only have one paper to finnish and that'll be it for this Spring! I also ralised while filling in the application form for the BA degree, that I have enough completed courses to fill my MA! :D How cool is that. All I need to do now is the last courses in my major and do the (feared) thesis. Hmm. Now I ended up babbling about something toooootally irrelevant to my modelling. :D Although, I could link this to modelling in the sense that this affects how much I'm able to do it right now.

Aaaaanyway: here's a pic by Michael Schultes.

14 April 2010

Cute n pink!

Wheeeee, I got the pics now from February's shoot with Ilari Nurmi. :)

Aren't I cute or what? x) We were meant to do something different and went for the pink theme.

This shoot was different in that too, that this was the first time ever(?) I didn't really get any direction from the photographer. :) It was kinda cool for a change. I said about this to him and he told me he thought I had a good flow going on there with my posing so he reckoned I didn't need any help. ^^

(I think about this pic below Tyra in ANTM would say: "You're modelling from head to toe" ;) cos I think I pretty much am!)

Here, below, you can see my tats pretty well.

It was fun shooting with Ilari and there's gonna be a reunion in the summer maybe.. or at some point anyway! It's always more fruitful to do a shoot with someone whose ways you already know.. and who knows mine. :D

One more pic I have to add.. I'm not sure whether I love this or not. There's the pinky, but then there are some other things that I'm not quite as fond of. For instance, I totally should've leaned forward a bit so I'd look less stomachy and shortlegged. What do you think?! :) Keep it or loose it? Feedback please!

Jodie goes Actress!

Oooh, this "Jodie goes x" is totally excellent in use! I can use it in any context. x) And I will in the future too! Hahaaaa! Just to irritate you^^!

But back to the subject.. acting. :) Used to do that as a kid passionately, thereafer grew too self concious to do any. However! Here it says that I, in fact, am an actress. :D You might not recognize me though, cos in modelling, obviously, I use a "stage name". (Always felt that Johanna is too plain and booring.)

But this of course refers to the Duke Nukem film trailer thingy I posted about some time ago. It's coming along quite nicely now and we should soon be able to see some results. At least I hope so! :D It's great that the film has already gained some popularity, there's for instance a Facebook -group. Well, nowadays everything is on FB anyway..

And just to fill this post up with links, check out this teaser on youtube.

A Bit of Oldies Again

I'm waiting for a couple of photographers to retouch some pics and so I got nothing new to post atm. However, since I have photos from year 2006 onwards, I can always post old ones that are new to you guys! :D Whohoo!

This is by Markus Lehto and in fact it ain't that old. We did this shoot in January this year. The location is the backstage of Klubi here in Turku. I love the writings on the wall!

This was the first shoot in a year with Markus. It was pretty unbelievable, since we used to work together a LOT back in the day. It's also awesome to see how we both have developed with our skills.

Oh, and it seems that everyone prefers the first one of the two pics in my last post. :D

19 March 2010

Long time no photograph. O.o

Since nothing seems to be happening on new pics front atm, I decided to post some older pics instead. :D Wheeheee. Here are two pics from 2007. I've never been able to decide which one I liked best, so I dthought you could tell me! How about that!?! This is precisely the awesomeness of having a blog: I can post nearly identical pictures from a shoot and no one has anything to say, cos it's "just" a blog and not a portfolio. :D Theehee!

So, which is better? :D

The First:

The Second:

These are by Markus. And look how short my hair is^^!

More of the hippie-Jodie

I just got more pics from the hippie shoot (haa haa, sounds like I was shooting hippies as bang bang with a gun. Theehee.. yea.) and wanted to share some of them here^^! I'm quite happy with these.

..especially the last one. My personal fave. And looking at the pic above, it seems I have gained some muscle on my biceb. All the training done in the autumn didn't go to waste. I wish I had more time to work out now as well.

Oh and this blog has reached over thousand visitors!! :D Whopiiiii yeeeeaaaah! In only a little over a mont! Thank you for visiting^^!!

Oh and one more thing.. I'll be posting these hippie-pics in color soon. :D (I'm just too anxious to post right away what I get. Haahaa!)
