I love working adventures! And this was a real one, with sunshine in the archipelago, a whole lot and good mix of creative people from France, England, Sweden and Germany…some a good mix of backgrounds in themselves…I love it! Proffesional, heart full, creative! Best best photographer Stefan Heinrichs, who was present and dynamic in a way I have not met since Bob Richardson and early 70s. And then working with superbest model Frida Gustavsson. I found out that Frida was the one who asked for me to be in the photo shoot. She was the star and only model of the 50 page story. I feel so happy and honoured by that! Because she is the best, sweetest model ever. We had a moment on set together which was far beyond fashion. A deep love moment that left us both amazed. I love this girl, this tall immense beauty! I totally fell in love with her…heart to heart. This is all I will tell about this day for now, more will come in september when it`s not a secret any more.
After an hour and a little more in a van going north we arrived by the Baltic sea and were fetched in a small boat…
Helin Honung was with us, she is also doing a blog for Rodeo and we had never met before so that was great to meet her as well
as I came ashore on the little island, I was met by some images, here some prop for photos
I walked on a discovery tour and far back in the garden was the studio, a photo studio outdoors
Stefan, in all kinds of positions, taking photos of…
Frida who was posing with lightness and ease. We met in a hug after the shoot.
Hair and make up team Cynthia Baligan and Philippe Baligan, a couple since 18 years (if my memory serves me well), wonderful beings and great talents
all these flowers
and more props

Stefan and the team looking at my mini history of pictures
and all this green and all these flowers, a paradise world all around us and joy within
joyful lunch hangout with many story tellings
getting fixed for the camera
Frida hanging out talking with me. Having a moment free while I get fixed
She is soo sweet! Can you see? So natural and heart full!
All around things going on all the time
I`m on set for a portrait
Crouching down, moving around, giving it all. What a great day! And it continued with sauna and a swim, then dinner, fresh fish from the neighbour and a rare glass of red wine, before the sun set and I was driven back home. Blessed blessed blessed!
