Updating portfolio - help needed

What I hate with passion: updating my portfolio. What to take out and what to add. I'm talking about my Modelm Mayhem port here.

No I need you help! Not just want, you see, but need.

First of all, any ideas what to throw away from my port? In order to add new stuff there I need to get rid of the older ones. There's a limit to the number of pics there. The ones you possibly cannot see (unless you got profile there as well) are nude and you don't need to worry about those. :D

Second which of these pics on this post should I add there? I love them both so much, just can't decide. I'm talking about the girly little black dress -pics by Marko.

Also I got so many pics from the photoshoot with Niko (the link opens up all posts tagged with Niko ie. all posts with his name tagged) earlier that I'm having serious trouble... O.O Not to mention the Latex Gone Golfing -shoot with Markus (don't forget the first part of the series either)!

So if you can help me, I'd be happy! ^^

My dream photoshoot?

I got a question from the photographer Markus. :) He writes:
Not really sure if you have covered this already, but what if you shared us a thought or two on subject: "My dream shoot"? So, what would a photo shoot be like if you was the mastermind? You can give some general ideas ("I would like to be shot in space" ;)) or some very detailed stuff (describing everything from the location to make up and all the things in between). I'm in impression most of the corgeous settings and ideas implemented in your photos are works of the photographers' twisted minds. I might be wrong, though... :)
I actually answered this some time ago also on Formspring! Here's what I said:
A well known skilled photographer, super skilled make up artist and hair stylist and wardrobe assistant and all that. Plus I'd get paid. Plus the pics were for some rad magazine. I'd have the most amazing look and the photographer was an awesome person and we'd get along super well and the pics would end up being just ah-ma-zing! :D Yeah.. something according to those lines. :)
The photos could be for some awesome magazine or/and for some awesome campaign. A little couture or editorial. Nothing too boring or straightforward commercial.

Hmm, is that too boring and too vague? Isn't that what every model wishes for? :D Also, I'd love to try underwater modelling, since water has always been sort of my element (as a kid I was dreaming of being a mermaid, and loved to dive deep into the green lake, it was soooo beautiful). I know it would be challenging and I might suck at it, but still, I'd love to try. :D

Ohmigoosh, there must be gazillions of things I'd love to do or at least try! :)

And yes, most of the ideas on my photos are those of the photographers'. Usually the "idea" behind the shoot is  a location and outfit and that's it. I guess it's sort of my job to deliver the rest. :D

These pics are from our recent photoshoot with Marko Saari in Tikkurila.

Things you can do with a sweater

On an earlier post I asked you to give me suggestions on topics what to write and to ask me questions on Formspring. Thanks to those who did! :) Lately I've been on a less of a chatty mood and I've been slow answering on Formspring and haven't reacted to questions here either. :P Sorry! I will get back to those as soon as I get a chance.

Here are again couple of pics from our shoot with Marko Saari. The shirt and the sweater are my friend Liisa's (who gueststars on the making of pic below). The previous ones from the same photoshoot here.

Girly lady in the little black dress

A couple of weeks ago I had a shoot with Marko Saari. We've worked together before - nearly two years ago! So, about time to create some magic together. I was lucky I stayed at my friend Liisa's place, cos she's got the most amazing wardrobe! The amount of the dresses.. wow. :D And it's super awesome that we're nearly the same size. So, my wardrobe assistant on this shoot was Liisa Wiik. Aaaand I'm definately considering using her again for these purposes... ;) Her style is so different from mine, so it's great for photoshoots to have something completely different!

Here are a couple pics from the shoot. More coming for sure.

I'm kinda doing the same thing on these both, but then again, in completely different ways.. I thought should I post only one or the other, but decided to post them both, cos I couldn't decide.

I love love love that cute dress! And it made me feel totally girly and glamorous.

When I opened the file for the pic below my mouth blew open and I was like "What is that? Who is taht gorgeous woman there?!" So yeah, I'm happy with the photoshoot with Marko. :D

Three things + one

 Hey my darling Followers,

(Thing no 1) no one has asked me anything on Formspring for a long time! So please do so! :) There's a box there on the right just below the picture, where you can write your question.. theeeere. ->

The answer will show up on Formspring. So check it there. And plz, no more latex-related questions. :P

(Thing Two) Also it is highly recommended (by yours truly of course;D) to leave comments here on the blog! I get a notification every time someone leaves a comment, so I won't miss the comments on older posts either.

(Third thingy) I'd also be reeeeally happy if you gave me some hints on blogs that I could follow. Generally I'm interested in other models and photographers, stylists, MUAs etc modelling related stuff. I've recently added some new blogs I follow on the list at the bottom of the right side bar. :) Check them out - and share your favourite blogs with me! :)

(+1) If you have any ideas about what I should discuss here, feel free to share your ideas! :)

..as in make up. Mwhahaa! Gotcha, all you who type Jodie nude on google! ;D

Last weekend I went to the capitol city again. I love Helsinki. So much going on down there. And so many photographers.

I shot for the first time with Niko Rakkolainen. My make up, hair and wardrobe were taken care of by lovely Riikka Satama.  I lllllove the make up and it was wonderful how Riikka was so enthusiastic about her work! ^^ Must say, I'm pretty happy with them both! :)

Gone golfing pt II

Here we go, the promised golf set. The first pics I posted here were more like a model posing on a mini golf course, but these are more like a series. You can check the whole 10 picture set on Markus' web site here! :)
