Shooting for Vogue Italia

A while ago I was contacted by Vogue Italia to shoot a story for them, and these are the results – shot March 2012. It was an interesting day – I had 45 minutes to shoot 12 images and I had food poisoning all day!

A story of princesses who no longer have lands to rule.

    Beautiful pictures! I’m surprised you could do that in 45minutes, thats not really a lot of time… Did those 12 pics get published in the magazine?

    I love how versatile you are. It can be fashion or a wedding, but you can always tell it’s you behind the concept.
