LONGING


PHOTOGRAPHER: SARA LEHTOMAA
MODEL: JENNI KLEEMOLA
STYLING: SARA LEHTOMAA


I can still remember this day like it was yesterday. It was early on a Saturday morning in august. With my camera bag and our breakfast packed and ready to go me and Jenni headed to this small private beach to take some photos for my portfolio. The air was warm and the rising sun and the heavy mist that covered the ground looked breathtakingly beautiful. It was the perfect day for a photo shoot.

After looking at these photos I wish from the bottom of my heart that it was summer again! It's a big shame that my favorite season of the year only lasts a few months here in northern Europe. But when summer finally comes again I know I'll make the most of it! Only about 200 days left till I'll be able to take a dip in the lake nearby, lay in the sun for many more hours than recommended and eat ice cream.

LOVE



JACKET - H&M


I've been thinking a lot about relationships lately. In particular the kind of relationships that involve emotions of strong affection for another person. Basically, love. I've never sacrificed much of my time for such relationships, and I have never in my life dated anyone. And because I've never really thought much about it I now find myself in a difficult position. I feel like I don't know how to handle these kinds of new emotions due to my unfamiliarity with them and it's pretty much driving me crazy. Also I haven't quite figured out yet how you know whether you've fallen in love with someone or not. I'm kind of having these conflicting thoughts and I'm not sure what conclusion to draw of everything. My friends keep telling me not to think about it that much and stop over analyzing. 'Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.' I get the idea and all but for some reason in practice it's really hard for me to just do so. I wish my mind wasn't this tricky...but what frustrates me the most is that many of my friends seem to have it so easy when it comes to stuff like this. But I guess it also has something to do with your personality and your way of dealing with things. Anyway, I'm sure many of you have at some point of your life been in the same situation. Any good advice? I'd totally appreciate it and I'd really love to hear about your experiences. Wow, this got deep...I'm gonna stop before making a complete fool of myself. Later on I'll probably regret writing everything publicly like this...

LAST WEEKEND



Some photos from last weekend, which was awesome! Met up with some of the sweetest girls I know and had a great time. One of these lovely ladies turned eighteen yesterday = there was a party. I would've loved to stay longer than just a few hours but another friend of mine was hosting a wine tasting party (which was more or less sophisticated) the same night, so I left earlier. And all of this is backfiring today, which is a bummer, cause it's close to impossible to do maths when your head is pounding like this... Also I think I may have caught a cold...

NEW HAIR



I never thought I'd actually have the balls to do this, but I did and now half of my hair is gone! After one month of consideration and hard thinking I came to the conclusion that getting my hair cut would be a good decision. And it was, even though at times I feel a bit naked without my longass hair. But I like the way it is now. Besides, short hair has so many pros. I'm so looking forward to not having to spend 5-10 minutes washing it, plus when it's windy it doesn't blow all over the place like long hair does. It will take some major getting used to after having long hair for so many years, though. What do you guys think of my new hair? Thumbs up?

HALLOWEEN




It's almost terrifying how fast time passes when you're busy. But I've had a helluva good time, that's for sure! And after all that's what matters the most. But there are downsides to being busy too. For instance, I don't have time to write in my blog regularly, which is a shame. And I'm afraid this weekend won't be an exception, since it's already full booked with two photo shoots and a reunion with my old friends form high school who I haven't seen in a very long time.

The photos above were taken at our halloween party last saturday. I'm pretty sure we made the sickest drink ever. Dry ice can work some wonders. I'm curious, what did you guys dress up as for halloween? Obviously I was a vampire.
