modelling – styling

photoshoot – chillin’ at the beach

A couple of weeks ago I did a shoot with photography student Sjoske Brackx. We ended up having a blast at the beach! Don’t let the sunshine and watersplashing fool you: it was pretty cold that day… But I was too busy having fun to notice.

Sjoske decided to leave the images unretouched. A couple of years ago, the thought of showing pictures of myself that were untouched would have really freaked me out, but now I just think it’s very cool!. So this is me. No hype, no gloss, no pretence. Stretchies and wobblybits included. Beautiful and imperfect… and proud to share these with you.

 

I hope you like them!

photoshoot – waiting for spring

marianne2

What do you do when you’ve planned a spring shoot, but nature isn’t exactly cooperating yet (hello bare trees and gloomy weather)?

I originally wanted to shoot something with brights colours and blossoms everywhere, but after taking a glance out the window I decided that would look completely ridiculous and un-springy. So I replaced the bright colours with whites and nudes, put wool socks in my sandals and went frolicking in the woods, dreaming of a spring yet to come. Photographer Eline did such a wonderful job capturing those feelings, and we ended up having a great day.

Fun fact: We have actually worked together before, when she was still a photography student and I was literally just starting out as a model! You can imagine we’ve both come a long way since then (I don’t know if I could look at those pictures now without cringing haha), and I’m really pleased with the results.

Here they are, I Hope you like them!
