Change can always be a challenge. Individually we allow things to affect us in different ways. The realisation of when enough is enough matters, small yet simple steps get us back on track. One day at a time. Make it Happen!
I hope you enjoy this one! Feedback is most welcome.

We took a camel into the cold deserted landscapes of the Saharan Desert in Morocco. The sun was about to set, while we watched people roll around in the sand and some rushing to get to their camps before it got dark. We quickly managed to take a photo with the sunlight wrapping around her face
Iit was the first time we had a shooting together. This amazing young woman is so dedicated and yet remains herself. As a small thank you for this award, I asked the model herself to write something:
~ Don't just exist, live. ~
It was an absolutly greate experience to shoot and try new stuff. I learned a lot and i'm ready for the next cool project we will have in 2022.
Thank you for your trust Manuela
I stand before you, naked and concealed. A hard shell of glass surrounds me, a protective wall of translucent safety. Take it from me! My blooms pour from its spout for you, for me. Be gentle with them. Part of me wants me to let go, to shatter the vase and let its water flow. I stand before you holding nothing. Exposed. But I cannot bear to shatter my exquisite vase. And so I set it down gently. Do stand beside it as a friend. To admire me in my utter exposure is to admire my blooms and my vase.
This pictures is part of an series with the theme pastel colors. The make up artist Nina from Ninchensart (instagram) did a great job and a modern make-up look. Thanks to the model agency Golden Model Gate GMG Switzerland for having model Michelle.
