Model Janina Maibaum contacted me about a month ago; she was looking to update her portfolio and needed some lingerie shots. I suggested that we do something a bit different and head outside into some woodland; as it was the middle of March I had no idea if she would go for it.
But when she agreed and said she loved the idea, I then had the task of finding some woodland that was pretty quiet where we wouldn’t be disturbed! Luckily enough the first place I found on my location scouting expedition was perfect
Despite the cold, Janina was extremely professional and was willing to suffer for her art! When we discovered a rope swing, Janina didn’t hesitate in jumping onto it, and with encouragement from boyfriend Chris, she got so carried away, it was difficult to get her off it!
It’s always really good when I meet people on my wavelength and they instantly understand what I’m trying to achieve. Janina was so much fun to work with and we both understood what was wanted and needed from the shoot. It was quite different from my other photoshoots and I enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for a brilliant shoot Janina, I really hope I get to work with you again in the future.
A big thank you also goes out to Ian for helping out on this shoot, and Jordan Osbaldeston and Lucy Smith for doing hair and make-up, I think the girls were numb from the cold by the time we finished!Filed under: Portfolio
