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).

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.
