These pictures are from the fashion shooting with Monika today. We met during my photography class back in May. She was one of the models for the portrait classes. I really loved her style and how she moved in front of the cam, so I had to do another shot with her. Today finally we made it.
Nearly all the pictures were taken at the docks near her hometown. What a great place for fashion shots, but also really strange! So many strange people... I would not ever want to be alone there. Strange things are happening there I can tell.

The clothes are all her own, so there was no special styling - just her and her clothes. And me with the cam.
I can really imagine her as a muse for a photographer. She moves so naturally, it's a real pleasure to work with her. She has so many ideas herself and she is also interested in art and fashion. That makes everything a lot easier and also feels so inspiring.

While driving home after the shooting, I felt so blessed. This has been another day that felt like a future preview - this could be my future. Working on weekends, while everyone else has freetime... yeah, may be annoying sometimes, but I felt so grateful for being able to meet so many different people. It's unbelievable how unique we all are. We may have quite the same looks, or similar style... but when it comes to personality - we are like no one else in this world. That's so magical and fascinating. Always.

Love these images, they feel like they are "living" and not stagnant. Truly lovely.

I wonder if you are much into post production editing? A little Photoshop or Lightroom tweeking could add some great dynamic depth to both images. I hope you aren't put off by the suggestion. You clearly have a wonderful skill already.
