When three people meet who end up drinking three pots of tea, cooking together and talking like they have known each other for years, you know that the end result is only going to be something magical. Grit Siwonia is one of the most talented and warm hearted photographers I have ever had the honour of working with and with Amélie in front of the lens, who manages to make even an old pair of oversized dungarees look like they should be a firm wardrobe staple, this ended up being the most touching shoot I have ever been a part of. On arrival, Grit prepared porridge with dates and nuts and her very infectious laughter made us feel like three old friends just came together on a weekend afternoon in Grit's cozy Kreuzberg flat to cuddle with her cats and chat for hours when in fact a photo shoot had been planned for a few weeks already.
Here is the first set of photos. There's more to come! I kept the styling simple and oversized with some feminine touches to complement the setting and Amélie's striking look. Let me know what you think!
