Vintage shoot in Milan
Federica was one of the photographers I contacted through Instagram while working in Milan. I absolutely loved her portfolio because her shots had a very gentle, feminine look, and she creates a very empowering experience for her female subjects. Compared to some of the other work I’ve done, this style definitely represented more of who I am ‘in real life’. Although the photos are obviously still posed, I was able to express myself naturally through my movements and expressions, rather than trying to embody a particular emotion.
I think every woman should have portraits taken at some point in her life. Some may call that idea vain, but I think it can be a really important confident booster - and who wouldn’t like to look back at professional photos of their younger selves?
I absolutely love the clothing Federica choose. My personal fashion style is far from feminine, but this dress made me feel like a princess.
Much like my shoot with Herman, these photos were taken outside and I was attacked by mosquitos the entire time!
