Summer Black Milk Shoot

Ugh, high time I wrote something in this blog.. Since I’m not shooting that much at the moment I’m finding it hard to write here. I mean, my everyday stuff aren’t really that exciting, it’s just work, work, food and more work. And I’d like to keep all that boring stuff out of here. I did create a blog solely for all things food related though, so if you’re interested you can always follow me at Philosophia Cibi.

Anyways, the reason for this post is not to moan but to actually show you something new! In late May my dear friend Lady Tigra and I got together for a quick shoot as she is now a photographer as well as a model. We wanted to keep it simple but alternative so I grabbed some items from my Black Milk Clothing collection and a couple of accessories and this is what we did:

Steampunk Sneak Peeks

I know I’ve been neglecting this blog quite a bit but time has moved so fast these past couple of months so I guess I just forgot I had it. I also haven’t been shooting a lot so there haven’t been much of that to write about. Early this year I made an active decision to cut beck on modelling for several reasons. Partly because I don’t feel I have enough time for it since I work during the week and only have time to shoot on weekends (when I also might want to do other things, like spend time with my love and my friends), and partly because I want to dedicate more time to shoot ideas that I have been working on for a while. It’s time to cross off that To Do list. And if that means shooting less in favour of creating great shoots, then so be it.

To be honest, it’s the best decision I’ve made so far. I love the process of creating a shoot and I want to fell that I’ve put enough time and energy in all of them, not just some. I’m less stressed now, it’s easier for me to get into the right mood and flow during a shoot and I feel very happy with the outcome.

In late March I had my first shoot in five months and it was with the lovely Carmilla who was here for the weekend. We had decided early on to something more fantasy inspired and later agreed to “throw in” some latex as well. I had a couple of ideas for both that had been brewing in my mind for a long time and now I could finally realise them in front of the camera! I love how both sets turned out, there were some true top notch images in both of them. Im still working on accepting the fact that my body looks different now than when I started six years ago, but hey, that’s what genetics, age and a feeling of being stable and happy in life can do 😛

Anyways, here are some selfies and sneak peeks for you!

Dieselpunk Fetish

If you’ve been following me on social media (FB, IG, this blog etc) you already know that I adore mixing different genres together. One of my favourite mixes is steampunk with latex, something that has kind of become my trademark style. Earlier this fall I got the opportunity to shoot with the amazing Necrinity Art and we decided to go for dieselpunk (a style I’ve wanted to do for a long time) mixed with latex.
I loved working with her and really hope to do it again soon and the photos came out amazing! 😀 Have a look for yourself, I’m sure you will love them too 🙂

Cyber Blue Latex

Okay, so I’m currently failing miserably at blogging once a week but I least I’ve managed to do it once a month. And that’s always something, right?

Anyway, this time I’d like to show you a set I shot this summer. It was my first shoot with Felicia Püschl Photography (definitely not the last) and I’m so happy with how the photos turned out!

Published in Xpressions Magazine

Earlier this year I got together with some of my favourite partners in crime and created an amazing steampunk shoot. We had worked a long time on getting the outfits and details right and I had sorted out a great location.

A couple of weeks ago we found out that our efforts had payed off and we were getting two of the shots published in Xpressions Magazine. I am so happy and so proud of the entire team who made this happen and the pictures turned out perfect 🙂

Darkness & Goth Girls

In the early summer I got together with two of my loveliest creative friends, Lucy Fehr and Katiekat, to do a bit of shooting together. I had been in discussions with them both about co-modeling and so we thought it would be a good idea to do something all three. So I got to model alongside both of them, which was tons of fun 😀 We have such great chemistry so everything just flowed and the photos turned out wonderful!

Here are two of them to start with 🙂 Photographer for the first one is Lucy Fehr and Katiekat is my co-model (she also did the editing on this one) and for the second one it’s the other way around! Lucy’s and my dresses are from Black Milk Clothing, my corset is from Viola Lahger and my nail armour is from Myril Jewels.

Black & Green for Bedeseme Magazine

Time really flies sometimes, doesn’t it? It’s the beginning of August, which means fall is closing in and with that a very hectic period for me. Not only will there be lots of work but I will also travel a bit as well as go in for surgery which is going to leave me unable to do all my normal things for a couple of weeks (I will make a proper post explaining everything later, but I can assure you it’s nothing serious and everything is and will be fine). That also means no time or energy for shoots. At the moment I have a lot of sets waiting to either be sent to magazines or to be done at all so there will be stuff to show you!

Until then, please enjoy this set that was shot exclusively for my feature in Bedeseme Magazine this past winter ❤

Red Burlesque

Okay, I know it’s been two weeks since my last update but things have been pretty busy over here. So I thought I’d make it up to you by showing something nearly new but different. You all know I like to shoot vintage/retro with Hanna Fredholm. Well, a while ago we got together to shoot again and this time we ended up doing a colourful burlesque theme. I’ve never done burlesque before so it was a really fun thing to try 🙂

Electric Lilac Latex Dreams

Back in early May me and my boyfriend went to Berlin for German Fetish Ball Weekend. This was our second time there as we really enjoyed the experience last year, and while we had planned to go to more parties and events we actually spend a lot of time just enjoying the city. We did go to the ball on Saturday though and of course the fetish fair, these were our main priorities after all.

I love going to fashion fairs and flea markets, it’s so much fun to go around, browse everything and chat with a designer or two (although I’m horribly shy and very bad at representing my model self). And of course I always come away with something nice ^^
This time was no different, although I wish I had taken the chance to get something more (don’t you always?).
Anyways, my treasures this year was a beautiful harness inspired top from Pandora Deluxe’s latest collection and an order for a dress from Catriona Stewart Clothing. A few weeks ago that dress arrived and here it is! It’s an absolute dream made of electric lilac latex ❤

It’s the girliest piece of fetish clothing I will probably ever own but I love it to bits 🙂 And I will be doing a shoot with it soon which will be so much fun!
