Charite ! =)

  First image from my shoot with Charite ! Really pleased with the results, I must say. She is incredibly easy to photograph and pose =)

Shot in the studio first, and went out for a quick walk afterwards, just taking going around the house, and behind a few shops etc.  and the weather was kinda perfect, with the sun just about to set. Well, aside from the fact that it was ridiculously cold !

Make up is done by Miriam

This outfit kinda reminds me of Sonia Rykel for H&M, now that I think about it =)

Grunge !

A few location shots of Charite. Shot these right outside the studio after we where done with our studio session last time..

Weather was rather awesome. Just after sunset. To bad it was cold as hell!

Testing some new textures etc here. Some soft grunge brushes..  Doesnt really show that much, but it gives some grain and structur to the images =)

I bet the first thing you notice, is the awesome wardrobe here. Wich is because the coat is mine, so its natrually rather legendary.
