Camera Shy? (Part 1)
Recently I have had the most amazing chance to do two photo-shoots with two different photographers!
Both of them having very different styles:
Photos by Kyria Abrahams, 2012:
Here are a few (ok a bunch of my favorites):
Shooting with Kyria was simply amazing; easy to work with and we really were coming up with a bunch of concepts together. I am so glad that I had come across her work after she had done a beautiful photo-shoot with my friend Polina. Kyria is able to bring out your hidden personality; your sexuality and or your sensitivity. Her camera is her poetry and she simply: projects it with ease.
As you can probably tell we decided to use a vintage inspiration (oh, how surprising!) mixed with my love of Vespa’s, Jean Shrimpton and Plaid 60s suits. We shot the photos in my house and found it to be the perfect location for future shoots.
Other inspirations: Audrey Hepburn, Raquel Welch, Jean Shrimpton, Twiggy (of course).
A friend I know I will have forever, and an inspiration for having such a soul for the art she adores.

& a special thank you to Hamlet’s Vintage who lent a lot of the wardrobe for this swinging shoot:
