celestial nymph

























(i am so lucky to have the loveliest girl to grace my first shoot of the year)
Stefanie, a talented beauty who, i wish, lived much much closer to me so that we could go on amazing, inspiration-fuelled photo adventures more often. this is only the third time we've ever met with each other and she is already one of my favourite people ever!
i am and will be forever grateful for blogging and the online community of photographers, for without which i would never be who i am today and never would've met such wonderful, like-minded people :)

go on over to Stefanie's facebook photography page and give it loads of love! she deserves every bit of it :) 

p.s. a very belated Happy New Year!  2012 was a great year for me and i'm hoping that 2013 will be even better for all of us! here's a quote that inspired a need in me to create and to grow creatively, more than ever before and to imagine, to get out there and do something, and most importantly, it reminded me to embrace my abnormally, inhumanely sensitive self.

“The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanely sensitive. To them… a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create — so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, their very breath is cut off… They must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency they are not really alive unless they are creating.”

This series is seriously wonderful. I especially love the black and white overlays; they remind me of a series I recently shot and it's like our minds were connected.
