Boudoir session with plus model Marjaana Lehtinen from Finland

portraits

Marjaana was an inspiring story that came across to me scrolling my Instagram feed a while back.

Miss Plus Model of Finland in 2017 she is a woman that took on the challenge of losing over 150 pounds!

Of course not an easy challenge but one she tackled and came out a winner.

Proud of her body, Marjaana accepted to have a boudoir session while on vacation here in Chania Crete, Greece.

 

My favorite portraits to shoot are the ones of people that have something to tell me with their eyes and freely know what to do with their bodies.

A wife and a mother, Marjaana is proof that it’s not easy, but with the right mindset you can take control and be beautiful internally and on the outside.

 

I also wanted to show that boudoir isn’t for hard, skinny and long bodies that most consider sexy. But it is how you feel inside that matters.

Singer Julie Berthelsen from Denmark
One of the joys of being a photographer is all the interesting people you get to meet. Even better when those people trust you to do their portrait. One of those moments cam when the well known singer from Denmark (Nuuk the capital of Greenland) Julie Berthelsen visited Crete, and more particularly Divine Villas on the Akrotiri of Chania. The owners’ request was for me to capture Julie in the surroundings of the villas. Julie was a bliss to shoot with. Pleasant, polite, down to earth and very recently had become a mother, making her radiate even more. Here are a few of my shoots from this session. To view more about Julie Berthelsen ...

Couples portrait session from the beach up to the mountains of Chania Crete, Greece
One of the magnificent beauties of Crete is that one minute you can be sunbathed by the Mediterranean Sea and within a 20-30min drive you can be in a mountainous range enjoying a walk in the woods. And you can then cuddle by a fireplace with a home cooked meal.   This is how I spent the day with Natasa and George. Both working hard during the Summer season at Alcanea Boutique Hotel and now, in the off season, enjoy the nature Crete has to offer.   By the water we even found a boat named George with the sun beating down on us. Despite being mid December. The water reflected the sunrays and reminded us of the Summer that w ...
