"Bohemian" Photoshoot Teaser

Despite the fact of feeling sick, my throat killing me and the weather being cold as ice, which by the way is weird in portuguese June,  this was again a beautiful photoshoot. This time I worked with the usual Despe&Veste and also a handmade jewelry brand - Lovely Breeze. It was the first time meeting the ladies from Lovely Breeze and we instantly connected. Lovely people and so much fun to work with.

For this photoshoot we wanted the simple "boho" look, neutral and beautiful. I think we did a great job as a team and it went perfectly. We also worked with a new model, the beautiful portuguese blogger Bárbara Inês, from the blog Banging Fashion. Bárbara was a pro, and so easy to work with. A sweet girl, I was glad I got to finally meet her.

Because I was sick, I always got the impression I didn't give a 100% of myself, and I didn't. It was so frustrating to me because me and the girls have been talking about this photoshoot for so long and we all wanted it to be perfect. I did my best and the girls loved it. That is all what matters to me.

As been usual, here is a little video teaser and photos from behind the scenes. The photos are coming soon!

Thrifting with HOLGA

Last week I went to the most known thrift fair in Lisbon, "Feira da Ladra", and I took my Nikon with the HOLGA lens, just for some fun, old vibe looking photos. Usually, I never buy anything, but I love to look at other people's old treasures. I can always have fun in this street fair. Here are some photos, taken with the HOLGA lens.

Roadtrip to Óbidos

Last week I had the pleasant visit of my parents and we had a little roadtrip to the beautiful portuguese village of Óbidos. It's so cozy and beautiful, and it has the castle so it's always a plus. For me it is a special fortification, because Óbidos has been nicknamed "Vila das Rainhas" - Town of the Queens - because in 1210 King Afonso II gave the castle as a present to his wife, Queen Urraca. Since then the town has been patronized by the Queens of Portugal. Anyway, here's some photos to mark the day.

While I was driving, I drove by this amazing ruins so I had to park the car and run over to take some photos of it. It looks like that it was supposed to be a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients, in 1910, but it was never finished. Locals often call it "palace" or "castle". it sure looks like it. It's called "Albergaria Grandela".

Also on the way, we stopped at Torres Novas to rest a little. I wish I took more photos, though.

Óbidos! (that's my car, forever alone)
