- bachelorette party
Once at a party I met the composer Alexei Retinsky and his family - his wife Katya and daughter Theodora. After some time, we decided together to shoot in a reportage style, without strenuous posing.
Together we thought out wonderful outfits for the whole family: I told Katya that interesting images and rich textures were needed and she understood me perfectly. For shooting she chose natural colors and a variety of materials that look good in photographs - wool, velvet, silk, were chosen. Layering and comfort. These clothes reflect and emphasize individuality and are combined with nature.
We chose for a walk the outskirts of Vienna - The Schafberg Hill. In the autumn, it is very romantic there: hills, city views and a golden transparent forest.
The guys did not pose specifically. We walked, ate buns, drank hot punch on the bench and chatted. This format of the photo shoot is the most pleasant - it's just a walk where you can remain yourself.
Spontaneous shooting in the park Schönbrunn, in the midst of autumn. Actually, the guys had long planned to arrange a photo session, but they waited for two things: until the belly becomes noticeable and when they know one simple thing: boy or girl, because they wanted take photos with socks of right colour. According to the plan, the shooting was suppose to happen in late autumn, but then Oksana called me earlier and said that they already knew: it's gonna be a boy! They were ready.
The next day we scheduled a meeting. And everything turned out, we were very lucky with the weather, and the guys were so sincerely happy, so gentle with each other, that the whole photo session was easy and fun.
