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.

Boudoir sessions in general, are a celebration of your body at a given time of your life. Salla Kasma is into fitness and spends endless hours in the gym sculpting her body to perfection. A full-time student aspiring to become a doctor, Salla is not only wise beyond her years, but she is also confident in her ways. While visiting the island of Crete she decided to capture her hard work from the gym in a more feminine way. My job was to make the super fit girl look more womanish and sexy. Well, it wasn’t that hard. Because on the outside she was the stunning girl from the gym but on the inside, Salla is a woman on fire.   ...

Joanna is a rising model living in Chania Crete, Greece. Her potential is promising and is obvious in this session. Having done work together in the past for swimwear companies her outgoing fun personality now needed some styled images with a more fashion sense. In the first outfit, Joanna had a modern feel with her hair tied back. The last two outfits, Mikela styled Joanna to be more nostalgic and vintage. I personally tried as hard as I could to accompany the outfits in a rainy day.
