It’s winter break!!! And for the break, I’ve put together a little selection of photos I’ve never publishedYou’ll get to see some pretty cool stuff I found. It’s never too late for a good photo!!!

Here’s a photo of Elisa I took a super long time ago. Maybe you didn’t recognize her because she didn’t have her short platinum blonde hair yet!

I remember that day so perfectly. I was shooting her for Vogue. It was one of my first commissions for a real magazine and not only was I not super confident in my own abilities in terms of photography, but I also didn’t know Elisa and I thought she was the coolest girl on earth. I was terribly intimidated.

It’s funny when I think about the whole thing. Today, Elisa is one of my dearest friends and I just love her. Now when we shoot together, I shout tyrannical orders at her “Look over there. No, all wrong, not there, THERE!!!” “Wait wait. Don’t move. I’ve gotta put your necklace back in place. It’s all messed up.” “Noooooo quit laughing, are you KIDDING me?!!?” (She has the tendency to laugh all the time.) If I would’ve known, I would have started doing it earlier!!!

But that’s not why I remember that day so vividly. I remember it because it was the day she first told me she was pregnant. Since then, little Lucio has arrived. The start of a friendship and the birth of baby…. It’s all just too cute. I send big hugs to Elisa.

Here’s the last photo I took of her (I don’t even try to fight it anymore : I just let her laugh like crazy).

And all the photos I’ve taken of her since, you’ll see that it’s quite a special bunch. And I have to include this photo of friendship that Scott took. Sorry, I just can’t stop! Big hugs!!!
