Rita found me from Instagram, and I couldn't be more grateful for that. She is an amazing young woman, who has pursued her dreams far away from home, living life as it's fullest being a raw vegan chef, living on a tropical island and learning languages and dancing through it all at the same time. I believe she's also that beautiful girl that no one forgets they met. This whole session was shot in around 1 hour, in 2 locations (apartment terrace and and 1 outfit change. It's all about diversity, after all, it's the spice of life! Contact me for creative portrait sessions, I'm always excited to meet new people and find their glow. xx
We met early morning to catch this beautiful soft sunlight, and it definitely didn't disappoint. If you ever book a session with me, you should consider waking up early, or meet me on sunset. It gives so much more to photos. You won't regret it!

In a society that profits from self doubt, loving yourself is a rebellious act.
When we moved to the streets, Rita changed outfits and we basically just looked for cool backdrops and good light. I'm so happy for that yellow door that happened to be there, this look is so studio-like even!
We also found a perfect coffee shop, but about that in second blog post... :)
