I shot this photos during spring and it was a very special day.
Laura is the drummer and co-founder of my sister’s band, the awesome Drunklit. I knew since the first time I saw her that one day I would have captured her beauty.
After a few months since that moment, I finally find the time (and courage) to ask her for a shoot.
I’m not that confident in asking people to model for me; I know it can be quite embarrassing to pose in front of the camera and I don’t like to be the one who put people in the condition of being embarrassed. But then I proposed Laura to have a little shot together and she, very enthusiastically, asked me what I had in mind! She really wanted to model for me.
We decided for an afternoon of test shoot, just to make her feel confident in front of the camera.
Cecilia, my sister, did her makeup and hair, together we decided three different outfit. We went to the location and we started.
It was really amazing to see the improvements we both did in a few hours.
At first she was a little shy and insecure while I gave her directions on how to pose. After a couple of hours we were completely connected. She almost knew what to do before I could even ask her.
In my opinion, this is one of the reason that make photography so magical. In a few hours you can feel the other human being who is working with you. And the other human being can feel you.
I believe that, in a certain way, we are all linked together and photography is one of those things that can bring that link to life.
I hope to shoot Laura again very very soon.
