Green Dream – Bridal Session


This session has so many nice details and inspiration, and was carefully tought by each vendor that particpated.

If, like me, you love cute things, pastel colours and flowers, I am sure you will love the photos below!

Every single detail was carefully tought by each vendor that participated.

My vision was to do a simples, rustic and femini photo shoot. And everyone involved made it possible. The bride model Katie and her bright green eyes were enhanced by the amazing make up by talented Louise. She also did a romantic and loose hair style.

The Flower Market opened their shop doors, and prepared the most gorgeousgreenary flower set up and a lovely fresh flower bouquet.  Aquae Jewels came along with some elegant and chic jewelry. They are so beutiful and made the photos look even more elegant.

The_party created the cutest pastel colours ring boxes. With lovely saying and engraving. Also some wooden keys that gave a special touch. To close with a golden key, the amazing white bridal gown from The Bridal showroom! That will make every bride feel like a real princess on her big day.

All my vision came together, and was captured with my amazing Fujifilm Kit!

I used both XT1 and the new XT2 to capture the images. A combination of lenses (60mm, 56mm, 23mm) was used. And also my cute and pink Intas Mini 8! It always bring a nice touch to any event.

Tea Party at Sponthiphoria

As you can imagine by my website, I love everything that is pink, sweet & vintage.

So I was over the moon to get to photograph this cute Afternoon Tea session, in one of my favourite places in Dubai – Spontiphoria Boutique & Cafe.

An afternoon tea with the girls is always a good idea! Specially when you get pampered first, and have your hair done! After you can chitchat and enjoy all the details. Beautiful cakes, delicate wooden toppers and cute table decoration.  All complimented by vintage books, fresh flowers and the most beautiful mix of crockery!

Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed spending an afternoon in this hidden gem of Dubai <3

Couple session – Pinup in the Park

Once again I had a massive pleasure to photograph one of my  favourite couple in Dubai. Brazilian hair and makeup artist beauty Izabela and the gorgeous model Victor.

I was inspired by my by love for vintage objects and retro accessories. I styled this session in a dream park in Dubai. Many don`t know that Dubai has got sceneries with lovely trees and greenery. All the object used ato style are from my own collection of vintage pieces, that I have been collecting for years on my trips around the world. My entire home has got this vintage pieces so I am always happy when I get the chance to photograph them.

Both myself and Iza love the Pinup Style. Very feminine, sexy and classy. So the outfits chosen by Iza were screaming femininity and were able to show her beautiful brazilian curves. She created a curvy hair with nice curly bangs, cat eye make up and a stricking red lipstick. Victor was inspired by earthy tones, that enhance even more his brazilian tan. He used some acessoires like the cap, vest and very used brown shoes to bring a sence of period.

I will stop writing for now, and let you enjoy this dream shoot, with a beautiful sunset light kissing the sky <3

Vintage Fair Dream

A vintage temporary fair in the middle of Modern Dubai!I couldn’t ask for anything else to make a lovely dreamy session!

This shoot was put together by myself, Paula Scalco, Monica MHG Beauty and Ana, Nice Ribbon Atelier

It all began with the three of us being fans of each other on Instagram. We were all excited to do something together and I, as a vintage lover, told the girls an idea of shooting at a fair. Ana, who is a brilliant cake designer and also loves everything and anything vintage was immediately on the same page. Monica being a creating look addict and adoring all that is beautiful was also captivated and on board with the idea, and let’s admit, who doesn’t love girly, cute, vintage things?! So we set a date and Monica knew a gorgeous Spanish model, Tamara. She was perfect for this shoot and the best part is she immediately said yes!

It was a very fun day shooting. And it all came together perfectly.
