i spent a few days in sweden with my friend kärolin and her lover, mostly in their tiny stockholm home, shooting by the lakesides and in strangers' front yards. here are a few instagram sneak peeks of what we did; i hope that within a week or so i can show you everything else as well. 
until then, enjoy these little memories (:

for twenty-nine years before i saw you

it's somewhat creepy how many people read my blog
lately everyone keeps mentioning it
having a large audience can be fun but at the same time i can't just write about everything
so it's a bit complicated

one of my old classrooms with a bookcase full of russian literature

ulla sitting pretty on the windowsill

diana and my legs and a chair

the candy-coloured designer

everything must be perfect

shooting with glowing hands


funny poses

"ready, set, fly!"

favourite shot


diana kull designs
modelled by ulla alla
behind the scenes pictures by erik loide

obviously schools can be fun shooting locations. :]
also, my sincere apologies for walking on the tables, i had to.

the swan

tiny, fragile bones, with white feathers gracing her slender neck. the ground is frozen and the water flows from the roots of the trees, their bark rough to the touch. the snow is tenderly sleeping on her eyes, white like the fairy dust.

an undirected shoot with m who was kind enough to come over and dance around in the last remains of winter. coloured with milano and pretty paris.

of roses and thorns

the lovely veera lehtonen, wearing a wedding gown by ateljee emmi, a rose ring by mirhel and an enormous rose i found at a handicraft store. 

since some of the photos will be used on the atelier's website, i took a lot of still shots while playing around with the other ones (and making live bread out of veera).

hair and makeup by me, colour curve 'spring moscow' available here.
